Lights came on at 7 pm on Friday.
Nice view from the Hotel Inglaterra rooftop bar. 🙂
So just like a couple of weeks ago when Gabriella surprised me by texting me from the runway in Bilbao that she was on her way to have lunch in Sevilla with friends and inviting me to join them, Tomoko texted on the train from Jerez that she would soon be in Sevilla, on her way to Lisbon for a few days, and asked if we could meet up. And my plans for the day suddenly changed.
First we had a fab lunch at newly opened Maccheroni & Co in Plaza Alfalfa (have been wanting to check it out) and then we came back to my place so Tomoko could visit her favourite boy, Loki. Then another surprise (!) when Morcilla came prancing into the room, jumped up on the back of my chair and let Tomoko give her a snibble. I couldn’t believe it. Afterwards we went to see the LIGHTS ON for this year’s Christmas lights and then she was gone. Hoping we can meet up again when she is on her way home.
Whether you like it or not, the Christmas season is being thrust upon us. I admit that even I was a bit irked when I saw decorations up in El Corte Inglés IN OCTOBER, but now that December is nigh I’m actually getting quite excited for the city Christmas lights to be turned on (next Friday) and otherwise enjoying all the things I enjoy about this holiday. So I thought I would share some sound advice from the fabulous Fascinating Aida for all of you who insist on not liking Christmas. Can’t hurt, might help… 😉
This whole Christmas season has flown by! I think because I was away in Málaga, then in Jerez… Today I finally visited the Christmas Craft market, on the last morning it was open. And I did have plans to go out and see the Cabalgata (Three Kings Parade) this evening, but cosy comfort at Casa Azahar won out. I ended up making a late lunch at home and curling up with the cats.
It’s also the last night for the Christmas lights! I am so going to miss them. Once again I kind of feel like I have missed Christmas altogether. Maybe next year?
