A Funny Thing Happened in the Bar Last Night!

No not really but it sounded like a good title.

We never left the bar until it had closed again with the last hour or so spent with me on the floor playing with our friends young children.

If you can imagine water, mayonnaise, tomato ketchup, a bucket and a couple of glasses then you can get a rough idea of the mess we were getting in.  Oh and don't forget the pajita (straw) for blowing bubbles.

We had fun and I awoke full of life this morning - after all it has been over a week now and I am well and truly rested.

However on a serious note I do realise that I am not ready yet to hang up my brain and spend the next goodness knows how many years doing nothing.  I do need mental stimulation and I cannot be a 'normal' grannie who sits at home doing the knitting or just watching life go by.  That is fine for a couple of weeks but then I need to do things again.

Thank you my friends I have had a brilliant time, I have given my brain and body a well earned rest but I do need to continue with my search for something to do when I do eventually retire.

One thing that this has shown me though is that the migraines I was suffering from have to be connected to the amount of pressure I was putting myself under as I have been migraine free ever since I've been here.

So as the Mallorquians say poc o poc.

Happy Doing Nothing

It is very strange to be doing nothing.  Here I am lazing around on holiday, I have my laptop with me and my books and even my artwork - and I'm doing nothing.  Well apart from blogging that is.

There are so many things I could be catching up on but apart from reading a few books I just seem to be quite happy just sitting here gazing out to sea and people watching.  Even while writing on this blog I am sitting at the kitchen table with the doors open and a view to the beach so I can look up and gaze away whenever I feel like it.

Yes today is a kind of "I'll move when I feel like it" day.

I knew I needed to chill out but I think I've come to a complete standstill.

Lunar Eclipse

Sitting in the bar last night we were surprised to see a red moon.  Now I wasn't expecting a lunar eclipse and it was spectacular.  Unfortunately the camera is only a normal point and click and so the photo isn't that great but here it is - you will just have to use your imagination!
