Jan is already back home :( I miss him! But we had a great time together. We were slightly lazy, but we went to see the Portabandieri dil Calcio Storico Fiorentino (pics coming up soon) that was fun to see how they handle the flags, turning them and throwing them.
We cooked pumpking cake (I’ll post the recipe some other time), and had some quiet time alone. Of course I had to go to uni, and poor him came with me to become totally bored there. We did a little shopping here and there, visited a nice soap shop ( Bubbly ).
We enjoyed a nice japanese dinner at Mikado (Calle Pintor Juan Gris, 4 – Madrid), to celebrate my mother’s birthday (late) and mine (early) and it was great (as always – a very good japanese in my opinion).
Saturday eve we went to see Tim Burton’s Corpse Bride (in english, of course). It’s a really good movie, loved it. After it, we had dinner at a nearby Ginos – it was pouring, so the closer the better.
We had lots of fun these days, but it was too short – as always.
I also got my birthday presents (a bit early): Labyrinth, by Kate Mosse, and the cutest tiniest digital camera on earth: the Olympus [mju:]-mini Digital S in sexy black (and a spare battery, and a 512MB xD card). I feel totally spoiled! It means, I’ll be able to post more and better pictures from now on (most of the previous pictures were taken with my phone’s camera).
No knitting (as I said) was done during these days. I checked the blogs and tried to keep up to date, and so I discovered some people were curious about a certain reader (see: this post on affiknitty).
More updates soon!
