The weather has returned to normal, wall to wall sunshine, warm in the day and cold at night.
This Christmas was always going to be a difficult one so I decided to run away in the van with the doggies.
It was a no brainer in my opinion, not that I didnt get plenty of offers for dinner, but I just wanted to be on my own.
I loaded the van up yesterday and drove down to the beachfront to park up opposite the pub.
Firsty I took the boys for a walk along the beach, its just lovely and deserted at the moment,
We popped into the pub for a early drink and chat to the lovely barmaid Eva.
I then took Sammie back to the van as I knew he would be scared of all the people and noise.
The party kicked off at 16.00 and went on until the early hours, it was a fantastic night and the busiest I have ever seen the pub, A lot of people were also outside as it became too crowded inside.
I had a lot of friends down there so there were no Nigel no friends moments. I did have a big meltdown moment when I met up with Sara, she was one of the first people we met in Mojacar last year, she bravely come down the pub for a little while after getting news that her sister had passed away in the UK that morning, once again far too young and once again a victim of bastard cancer.
I think we both felt better for having a good meltdown, so sad for her though X
I did feel slightly rough this morning so didn't get on the road until 10.30.
Once again I went to La Carolina beach which was an absolute favourite place for me and Elaine and is only a 40 minute drive up the coast.
If she were alive Im sure we would have come here anyway.
I got a prime position on the front row, there are quite a few motorhomes here from all over Europe, but I'm keeping very low key and keeping myself to myself.
I have been doing a lot of walking with the dogs, plus some reading and had a lovely sleep in the sun, As the sun goes down I'm about to crack a bottle of Champers.
Im also thinking of Elaine's sister Julie who has been battling fkin cancer for a number of years, once again its reared its ugly head, she starts another round of chemo in 5 days.
But as we all know life goes on, albeit in different tangents.
Merry Christmas dear reader XXXXX
