Just in case any of you were in doubt as to Mother Nature’s sense of humour, I should tell you that eventually I got the hose working (with a friend monitoring the tap for floods), and after giving the garden it’s first proper soaking in weeks, about an hour later it started to rain… Literally the first time it has rained here in 2 months….
She’s got an evil sense of humour has mother nature.
Well I’ve just gotten back from an incredible holiday of a lifetime in Cuba, which was totally amazing.
Cuba has been in my top ten places I’ve always wanted to go for years, and I’ve been planning to go ever since Obama lifted the embargo, in case it all changes. I almost went in 2016, but left it too late to plan and organise, and then in 2017 my boiler broke down and all of my spare money went into a new boiler instead, so this was the year I finally went!
It was also my last big mega holiday before I have kids, as I suspect I will be restricted to camping and cheaper holidays for quite some time to come!
It was amazing, and I’ve had to divide all the photos into several posts so get ready for the onslaught of pictures that will make you extremely jealous.
Oh, and for future reference, here is my current list of top ten bucket list holiday locations (ok, fine, top 11!)
As part of my book challenge this year, the first book I happened to read was Rebecca, and in it I discovered a quote that I really love!
Then while staying at my mum’s recently I got a chance to do some block-printing, and so I printed it out, letter by letter.
The actual print was huge, but I’m planning to print out a nice photo of it and frame it for my casa somewhere.
Sorry for yet another brief hiatus – I have loads of posts planned to catch you up on what I’ve been up to, so will be posting some catch-up blogs imminently!
Ok, ok, that’s enough bombardment of my holiday snaps, and making you all hopelessly jealous of my life…
Now it’s time for more mindless rambling, and some more recipes, coming up next….
Ah dear dear me.
Once again, life gets busy, and Maya forgets to blog about what’s happening!
So many things to say, and so little time to blog about them all!
Luckily I drafted a few posts a while ago, so prepare for the onslaught of updates and ramblings, some funny, some serious….
Did you notice I’ve been updating things on my blog recently?
There’s an exciting new “View Topics” page where you can jump to different posts, sorted by year, country, city or tags.
Also I’ve updated some of the cover photos, so there are loads of new and exciting photos across the top of each page you look at.
Hope you enjoy all the exciting new things as much as I do, and do feel free to send me suggestions if you’d like to see any other improvements to the site!
