I was feeling a bit sorry for myself this morning. Jacqui had gone off to play Friday golf and I was still suffering from a cold that seems to have lingered on forever. I felt so rough that I had to go to the chemist and pick up some Frenadol and Strepsils to ease the symptoms.
On the way home I looked around and saw what a fantastic day it is in Almerimar. It is 20th December and the sun is shining, there is little wind and you can see the snow on the mountains. This cheered me up a bit. Especially as yesterday afternoon it was very windy with a lot of rain. The first in quite some time.
When I got back home I strolled out onto the terrace and took a couple of photos. Yes, I have zoomed them and cropped them. Nevertheless the pictures above are what things look like from our terrace and the top of our stairs down to the communal swimming pool.
Now I remember why I moved here. This is the first cold I have had in around 2 years. We get wonderful weather like this in the middle of winter and it is well over 20 degrees in the shade on our terrace today.
The only thing that would make things perfect is if I could inflict a little pain on whoever gave me this cold. My guess is that someone brought it over from the Uk - but who?
