Hello dear readers, just popping in to say hello, and share a bit of this and that with you. You were all so kind with your comments on my last post, wishing me well, which acted a bit like some nice medecine, cheered me up no end, thank you so much. I still feel a bit under the weather, but am on the mend I think.
Now on to the subject of my holiday in Spain, or maybe I should say, back to the subject! Gosh, it feels like a long time ago, when actually it was just over a week ago I returned. It all seems like a surreal dream now, and not so fresh in my mind. I also have lots of crafty stuff to show you, which I'm itching to get on to. So rather than making the holiday snaps thing a chore for myself, (and as a result of it being a chore for me, probably a bit tiresom for you), I'm just going to show you a selection of photos, and in no particular order, just images I like, as they come.
The majority of these photos were taken in the region of Rioja, in Northern Spain. It was a six hour drive to get there. Rioja is a region dedicated to making wine, and we visited a couple of Bodegas, and got to try a couple of their red wines. Visiting Bodegas isn't something that would normally be on my list of things to do, but my parents thought it would be interesting, and they were right, it was actually great fun, and very interesting. We had the most wonderful time, it was very kind of my Mum and Dad to take us on that little trip, and we all had a ball, enjoyed ourselves enormously.
I now know how to sniff my wine, take a sip and roll it around my mouth, swallow, then swill the wine around my glass, sniff again, and take a second sip, swallowing straight away. The lady told us you should never judge a wine on your first sip. I don't know about you, but I think the smell of red wine is heavenly, sometimes nicer than the wine itself!
Well, time is lurking at my shoulder again, telling me to hurry up and finish, because I'm well enough to go to my knitting group tonight, and as I haven't been for three weeks, (and have missed not going), I don't want to miss tonight's meeting. Cheerio! Love Vanessa xxx
