▫️ HAPPY NEW YEAR to everyone. It has been a few busy days in our case with visitors from Germany and a very pleasant trip to Figueres in Spain to visit the Dali Museum, we took this opportunity to replenish on essential items. I think I am going to take it very easy for a few days. I might even have a bit more time to “re-start” regular blog posts.
