So, Christmas is finally here! Beth currently has a cough and cold but should be right in a few days. I apparently have vertigo and have been feeling dizzy for the last couple of weeks (or is it last couple of decades!). Still, I should hopefully be shot of this virus soon. Parkes, however, is fine and is tucking into our Cómpeta vino dulce.
The weather on the Costa has been challenging of late. Lots of torrential rain and thunderstorms in the past days have given way to gale-force winds. It is supposed to warm up next week to 17-18 degrees centigrade so I am keeping my fingers and other limbs crossed.
Christmas Day for us will be a English-style roast dinner with Christmas pudding and custards. Beth will open her presents from kind relatives on Christmas Day and presents from us on El Día de Los Reyes Magos (Three Kings Day) on the 6th of January.
