Another birthday

Today is Alec's birthday. Now, he is very peculiar about birthdays and does not like presents, cards or anything that involves being an object or entity. Some years I have bought him something and I had to take it back to the shop. Others he got nothing and it was when he was happiest. This year I decided to make a meal including three of his favourites ingredients: duck, courgettes and chocolate cake. The result was OK but I tend to panic preparing a big 3 course meal and today was no exception. I'm glad it's all over now. Despite the food we've had a lovely evening as Caroline and Jonathan have stayed for dinner and as usual they are great company. No photos of the meal but this is one of my favourite pictures of the Summer:

Muchas felicidades de parte de tu hermana y sobrinita que te quieren un monton. Besitos (muchos)

I'm back!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It's been such a long time since I last blogged that I've spent the last half an hour trying to remember my password. Anyway, I've decided to come back to blogging as it is my top of the list new year resolution. Yes, I know it's not January, but for me the year starts tomorrow, with the new academic year. It's a teacher thing. So, yes I'm also back at work tomorrow. I wouldn't say I'm desperate to start but life carries on after having a baby (Ana is almost 11 months)and, well, I've decided to swap 1 baby for 20 sixthformers (at least for three days a week).

Lots of things have happened in all this time I've been away, and first I'd like to share with you some photos of the lovely weekend we had at Mig and Martin's back in July.

... but not until tomorrow. Blogger is having a tantrum and it's refusing to upload me. Never mind.
