A special mention goes to the Three Sirens, who I am sure will shortly be entering modelling careers.
In the middle of the month we gave our permission for a pastor to bring his flock onto our land. there were about 80 sheep and a group of small goats. The whole lot was bossed around by the biggest domesticated goat I have ever seen. Have a look, it's standing next to the tree in the right hand picture.
Boris is growing rapidly, but still size zero, partly explained by the fact they spend their whole day racing around after rabbits. PG managed to get this rare picture of them all lying down.
Halloween Catalan style
We have been to quite a few of these bashes now and know the score, but it was a first for Richard & Mary, who loved it all but seem slightly bemused after the event.
During the afternoon the dads set up the garage while the ladies prepare the food. The party starts around 7.30-8.30 when all the kids gather to play, show off their costumes while their meal is set up so they eat in a group before the adults. Generally, the meal for the adults doesn't start till around 10'ish when a salad, embotits (dried sausages and other meats) olives and bread spread with tomato and olive oil, starts you off. The main course is usually bulk meat cooking, this time it was braised pigs cheeks and you're not likely to get anything else with it. Pudding is usually individual icecreams or more often, little sponge cakes and chocolate things.
Then comes the piece de resistance, Ximo makes a vatfull of cremat. A potent and as you can see hot tipple, to help the digestion. By now the clock has usually passed midnight and quite often 2 or 3 am. These guys enjoy their get togethers. I think we hade it to bed about 2.30'ish.
Lets hope we hear from the Dept. Urbanisme soon.
