A recap of the month’s events
As always, don’t judge a song by its album cover…though, of course, we all do.
This year, however, I will be there twice before June, which is a step up from last year.
I have not been able to write much of my Sci-Fi novel this month.
I met up with a friend a couple of weeks ago and managed all of 6 words.
In other words, although I’m not writing it, I am plotting it out somehow, which is a positive thing.
I was semi active with them a couple of years back, but kind of stop attending the various parties and events because they either clashed with something, I was out of town, or I was plain tired.
So I asked for another view of the sofa, since the one she had put up on facebook was a screenshot from Ikea’s website.
Was it the one from Ikea that she originally posted on Facebook?
They were having the usual January sales and I came across a sequin cushion which, I thought, was €5,99.
Like and idiot, when I was walking around the shop the price tag fell out somewhere.
So, of course, I had to go back to the cushions table and find another one. Which I did.
And when I did I thought, great!, a matching pair.
That one didn’t have a price tag either. So the girl at the till called the on-duty manager, who looked at me (like they always do in Europe) as if I was trying to put one on them, and told me I had to pay full price for the cushions.
I have been using them to hold books, mostly, and I’ve had to fight off my cleaning lady who throws them away whenever she comes round.
Spain has some great shoe designs and this season I have found myself in need of new shoes.
As they say, recycle or die, so I’ve also mended the soles on another pair of dress shoes which I bought in London about three years ago. Unlike the UK, or Texas, living in Spain means you actually have seasons.
So I had three tickets (the friend who was coming with us had to cancel too) to play with.
