I’ve escaped for a week’s break! My order books are clear and I’m having some much needed rest and relaxation on the Algarve. Before all the parents begin to castigate me, I haven’t taken my daughter out of school. I just don’t believe in doing that. No, I am fully making the most of a week away without responsibilities. Basically I’ve hi-jacked Mum and Dad’s holiday – well they did offer – and left Alice, the kittens and the house in the very capable hands of Hubby!
It’s really beautiful here. I’m in Carvoeiro, a small town with plenty of bars, restaurants and shops, certainly more than enough to keep me occupied in the evenings. Mind you, I don’t plan to do very much while I’m here. I’m hoping the weather perks up a bit. The locals have said it’s been raining for the last ten days! I could have stayed at home for that, but everyone is sure the sun is going to come out later today. I hope so, or else I will have to go and buy a jumper. I didn’t bring nearly enough yarn (or a pattern for that matter) to make one!
So, my plans for the week are pretty simple (assuming the sun does make an appearance)
- Sunbathe by the pool
- Eat well in the evening
