So, we came here to escape the chilly winter in Sweden and what happens?

Yes, I suspect that my bad weather curse did strike again: we have extremely chilly winds here right now and we´re freezing… It´s about 6 degrees celsius only and that´s not normal for March over here accoarding the people here.

Both yesterday and today have been like that, so we bought some extra clothes yesterday at the local market. A good excuse to shop and when it costs is like 3-5 Euros per item, we can´t complain.

But: the sun is shining from a very blue sky and that´s compensating a lot! And they claim that it should be getting warmer again tomorrow – let´s hope they´re right!

When reading about snow in other part of Europe, I guess we can be happy that we didn´t have snow storm on the way down here from Sweden!!!!

We were away to the new big shopping mall outside the city, Las Dunas, yesterday, to find some things. Not all stores had opened, it´s that new. I did find a pair of new jeans though. At normal price, not exactly cheap since it was designer jeans.

Yesterday was also Miss. Ass. Lifecruisers birthday so we had some very yummy Tapas at home in the late afternoon together with some lovely sparkling drinks.

After that we were getting ready to go out in the city center, it´s an old part of the town, very nice indeed. We ended up in a nice local restaurant with a good dinner.

I did choose Paella, Mr L some rolled ham (very funny looking!) and Miss Ass had Sirlion beef. No images though. Ehrm. I forgot. As usual. Ehrm.

I had a very brief message from my sister yesterday evening that my Mom was a tiny bit better from the stroke, but honestly, I do not know if I should be happy or not…

I fear that she won´t be able to talk at all any more and other bad effects too.

Such a life. *sigh*

Time to locate the other store, Dia to get some missed items. The other day we were at Supersol, another big supermarket. Of course, Miss Ass. has to investigate all her new options.

She got a new cellphone too, a Spanish one with subscription. Next thing is to find out were to get new gas for the heating – and where to put the garbage….

Two verrrrry necessary things!

    Well, glad you are there, safe and sound after all! It was fun following you at Twitter!

    I also saw in the weather forecast on TV that you had Scandinavian weather, but as a conformity, as you can see in my last post: we had snow yesterday. It can only be better at your place :lol:

    PS: Don’t mix the gas with garbage!

    Hope both of you have a fantastic time (We know you are able – LOL)

    Best wishes from the Mild North.

    When we lived in Hamburg, Germany, we flew to Palma de Mallorca over May 1st looking for sunshine…it rained on us while Hamburg had the best spring weather! I know about this and I hope you soon get to wear your tank tops and flip-flops.
    Happy belated bday to Miss Ass. Lifecruiser!

    It seems it’s about the same temperature all over most of Europe.
    But you have avoided the heavy storms in southern UK and NW of France. Lucky you.
    Mr’s hamroll – not the sort his used to from Farö. LOL. And ms Ass, I think she keeps you at least alive.

    ps. Yesterday it was 20 C in Nice (maybe in April, 4 me. And 22 C in Hong Kong, which I plan to visit in October.
