A warning of posts to come

I have just returned to Caunes from a 6 day trip to Spain. I went to see Bibi in Benicassim and then travelled down to the far south, to see Annie in Alcala la Real.

This is just a very quick post, to say how much I am looking forward to catching up on all my favourite blogs that have been published while I have been away...and to warn you that a few posts from me, probably some from Annie, and at least one joint blog will be appearing soon !

Those of you that know Annie and I will have imagined that we would have a good time, getting together at last. I think it is fair to say that we did.....and our adventures, short though they were, will be documented here.

Let me just say that weeping virgins, Sadler teapots, Oklahoma ( or was it Oh Calcutta) Romans, wisigoths, moors ,crusaders, Spanish hairdressers and fig jam will feature, amongst other fairly random things.

  1. Delighted you're back safely in Caunes. Goodness, doesn't it look windy and chilly and wet in the photo? I just have a warm feeling when I think about our weekend...Big random hugs, Axxx

    1. We had such a lovely time. I knew you would be the perfect tour guide, even if you have an even more vague grasp of dates than I do. ( I was always a conceptual historian....if a student wanted the exact date of some important event I would tell them to ask the history teacher next door ( a Mr Taylor as it happens)...and that I was more interested in why something happened, and what were its consequences.
      Looking forward to our joint blog. Jxxxx

    1. The logistics of writing a joint blog are all that is delaying us now.....and of course, that life sometimes gets in the way, as we all know.

  6. That was certainly a whistle stop tour....but it looks as if you enjoyed every moment of it.
    Looking forward to the resulting blog posts.
