Crafty in the Med

I'm here to enjoy meeting other crafters and to share my ideas and projects. I love to crochet,cross stitch and embroidery but I'm keen to try new crafts too. I love music and I love to sing! Singing makes me happy. I collect jugs....its their shape I think! I am addicted to yarn and buttons. I get lost in book shops and can spend all morning there and I absolutely adore rummaging in flea markets. I love to read sci´fi/fantasy,buried treasure, and off world adventures. I have a passion for history! I would be the first passenger on the first time machine ! I BELIEVE IN MAGIC!

Alicante is alive!!!

It is that!!!   
Alive!! 
The first night of the long fire festival week!!!

Alicante is dressed for a party!!!!

I'll be out and about throughout this week so lets see if I can get some interesting photos for you!!!



one of the official photos


It's so beautiful and the firework displays are beyond impressive.

This is the Postiguet beach and in the background you can see the Santa Barbara castle. 


I'll be sleeping by day probably because its daft to stay in and the fun starts from 11pm onwards!!! 
He! he!

It's 11:41pm and we are off out. I have had my siesta so I am ready to go!!


Keep well now

It is invisable me!!!

It's over a month since I posted last ....

I know it is a cliche but the expression time flies obviously comes to mind .....



and this is also going to be a quick post but I really wanted to let you all know that I have not given up blogging nor intend to do so.  

Lots and lots of things have been occupying my time this last month and you already know I'm a busy busy bee with much too much work!!..sigh....

but ...on top of that my daughter has had supreme bad luck with her teaching staff this school year.  I won't go into details really as it is tedious I'll just add she got lumbered with what we call "backpacker teachers". They say they are teachers...their CVs say they are teachers but they don't act like teachers! They are in Spain for a good time,sun,beach and partying and pay me for sitting in class but don't expect too much of me as I was on the booze last night!!!  
She had to fire them of course and I had to step in and cover classes here there and everywhere.
Poor girl she has been working like mad around the clock!!!





This is my daughter's school.




Reception

The front door


Horror of horrors I haven't even had time for crochet!!!     Now that does make me annoyed!!!





It looks like things are beginning to calm down at last and soon we will be enjoying the big fiesta week here so I hope I'll be able to get to it and set up my next post which will be to celebrate my 4th blogiversary with a super giveaway!!!


Keep well now!!!

Amanda :-)
