It's been absolutely freezing here the last week. We saw a frost for the first time since we've lived in Spain. There was a layer of ice covering my windscreen when I went to go to Spanish class on Thursday morning. And apparently it was snowing in Ronda which is only half an hour from Marbella. I don't like it. I don't have anything really warm that fits!

Went to a great French restaurant in Marbella old town, with Ollie and Clover. They are regulars and I can see why. Brilliant atmosphere. Food was typical bistro French, nothing flash but tasty.

Here he is modelling his new purchases. Looks pretty good to me! He loves going shopping with me because I always encourage him to purchase.
We also had friends over for Sunday lunch: Olly, Clover, Clover's mum Ginny, Theo, and another family of 4 little ones. We bought a whole wild lubina (sea bass) from the Marbella market which Tanc cooked deliciously on a bed of layered potatoes with pernod flavoured leek compote. Was a little touch and go for a while as the electricity wouldn't stay on. Brilliant hubby finally located the faulty fuse and the show was able to go on!
By the way, I would like to raise a toast to my new nephew, Baxter. To Baxter!! Welcome to the world! Looking forward to seeing some photos!!

We got back to Spain on Saturday night after spending 2 weeks in the UK. An enjoyable family Christmas was spent at Lois and Norman's in Surrey. We all acquired a lot more 'things' which of course we had to find room for in our suitcases! My wonderful, gorgeous, sexy husband gave me my dream camera (Canon EOS 400D) for Christmas so I had a lot of fun learning what buttons did what. Finally I can put some pictures up on the blog!
We celebrated our 1st year wedding anniversary on 30th December with a romantic dinner at the Chelsea Brasserie. Here's the happy couple on their way to dinner....
I went for my 16 week ante-natal check-up yesterday and all is in good shape. Tiger was in a breach position so I couldn't see his face, his genitals (to confirm that he is a he) or anything else much. My blood pressure is very low again but Ascension, the doctor's wife, assured me that it's nothing to be alarmed about. She even suggested that I have a milky coffee in the mornings to help me with energy. Fantastic as I had been suffering coffee withdrawals!
Not much to see except a cranium and a scapula. I hope the fat starts to go on soon, Tiger's looking undernourished!
