January 5th, night of the three Kings arrival in a fishing boat, we took our friends Chris and Mary down to the port to watch the parade, of course as normal it started an hour late but it was worth the wait to see the children dressed up and the floats. The last float with the three kings on it throwing boiled sweets at the kids, its a wonder no one was knocked out, especially when the Kings (three young men) spotted three young girls, dressed to the nines, they couldn't resist throwing hands full at them!
The first picture is a mural in the fish market, its where the fishermen sell their fish to the restaurants etc. The second was a boat that had just come in, great to see all the different fish waiting to be sold, the fisherman casually watching us all.

Well now it's all over and life has gone back to normal so I've been busy trying to get ahead with Birthday cards. Yesterday was Steve's birthday, 65!! scary as I always thought it was only our parents that reached that age!
Well not such a good birthday after having to be at the hospital at 8am Monday and yesterday for Cardiology tests, an hours drive away too so a very early start both days, it seems no major problems although he has his appointment in two weeks for the results, luckily at midday so not so early, thank goodness.
Of course I had to make a card with the Crazy birds!
I've stamped out quite a few and the accessories when I was full of enthusiasm, as you do, then spent quite a few afternoons playing around with them without actually making anything so I've put them away for now until I get inspired!
I did stamp on shrink plastic intending to use the birthday present on Steve's card, as you can see they shrink away and end up so tiny, that's why the balloons are still untouched.
Well that's me for this week, I have been following what you've all been up to but had a problem commenting from my ipad for some reason, I will make up for that this week.
Until next week, from a sunny, Spain, 20c yesterday, take care all.
