This is my last Monday of the year on the island. LMJ will be going home to Portugal this Thursday! Yay me! I have checked the weather forecast several times a day looking for the faintest sign of snow but the BBC assures me the area will be free from it. The travel nightmares of last year, which fortunately for LMJ were just a small delay really, should not happen again this year. All going according to plan, my dear Watson… I can almost breathe…!
I enjoy being a hostess and organising gatherings. One day, I will have a big house with tall windows where everyone is welcome at any time (well, most of the time!). I will have people over for dinner and Sunday lunches and Christmas and whatever other celebration takes our fancy. Until then, I will continue to have a few people over at a time (my place is not called the Matchbox for nothing!) and organise good gatherings with friends (preferably with gift swapping, really worked last time!) and cook bread with chorizo for them, with a few brigadeiros on request. It is good to be me on days like this 🙂
