For those who have emailed and also called in the last few days… will get to reply; our internet connection has not exactly been 24/7.
Home at last – to 37degrees C / was 23 when we left. Spent the last couple of days in Madrid. Good to be there on the anniversary of 15M and the indignados in Plaza del Sol. The police have such a difficult task but when they are standing (armed) arms folded overlooking small groups sitting on the pavement having a discussion something is wrong.
We have a lot to process from the past 9 days away. Our minds and hearts are reeling, then to cap it all Mr Hollande’s plane gets hit by lightning!!!
So normal(-ish) service will be resumed tomorrow… or the day after. Tomorrow a Spanish lesson then a visit from someone who is coming to see us (this happens regularly and we live in the ends of the earth).
