Saturday 26th November 2016...what a day!!!

It has been almost 3 weeks for me to be on my new eating regime and I decided today was the day to have some treats so I started this morning by going up to the local McD's..



I had two bacon and egg Mcmuffins with 3 potato wedges and a milk shake and boy did it taste good....
I was back home by 10 am and decided it was time for a nap so I went back to bed for a couple of hours and when  woke up I went to the local bakery and bought two blue berry muffins and had an ice tea........

Are you believing any of this???

Of course it is not true but just trying to find a new way to tell you that I woke up at 7 am and watched a live soccer game from England...at 9.00 am I went to the tennis courts, brilliant sunshine and lots of fun.....
 I came home and took delivery of this...
 a 9 inch chicken pot pie..I found on the Civil list a lady who makes and delivers pies....this one cost me 210 pesos good value when you consider i cut it into 6 pieces and froze them all except for one I kept out for tonight....

There was another live soccer game on TV and I watched that before I took off for this event....
beautiful hotel grounds and lots of events for the kids...
What are these kids watching??
here is the answer...
There was about 8 stalls making various kinds of pancakes I did sample a blueberry pancake and one with poppy seeds...
I was watching the activities eating a small pancake when I felt a tap on my shoulder and turned around and here she was....Daniela!!!!

She hugged me and it was a wonderful reunion.....does she not look like a beautiful young lady!!!

There was another girl from Casa Hogar with her and Monica spoke quite good English ..she asked me why I had not been back to Casa Hogar and I just said I was not really welcome anymore to which she told me there were all new Madres there and one of them was here and I should meet her..so I did..in my broken Spanish I introduced myself and asked if I could take Daniela and 2 other girls out swimming next Saturday and she told me yes at 2.30 pm!!!

I shall hold my breath because I have gone through all this before but I will be at Casa Hogar next Saturday and hope to take Daniela out..how thrilling!!!!

these girls performing reminded me of Paola as I had her in this class for over two years!!!

Obviously i was on a high when I left going back down the hill is one of two Miradors(lookout)
and a great zoom shot got to like this camera!!!
I then stopped off to see Catalina at her home..she was the maid at Linda and Guy;'s home for years and I have always liked her..I took her a Poinsettia and met her gorgeous Grand daughter!!!
then on my way home stopped at the same stall as Thursday and treated myself to 12 mixed roses!!!
At home I relaxed and cooked dinner, a sweet potato and some Brussel sprouts with the chicken pot pie which was lovely!!!!

Now settled down with tea and watching Vancouver Canucks hockey game...life is great!!!

Yashi Kochi!!
