About Me

Passionate cook, a citizen of mediterranean europe, aspiring writer and City Slicka turned Spanish Chica. This blog includes chapters from my book City Slicka to Spanish Chica which describes the journey from living and working in London to meeting my Big Man, building a house in Spain with him, and taking on dogs, chickens and vegetables as part of my new life.

Our lives are now divided between our time Up the Mountain in Spain (where we grow our own food, rear hens for eggs and for eating and indulging my hobbies of cooking, writing, designing and sewing clothes) and time spent Down by the Sea in our beautiful adopted home town of Bexhill on Sea. Here we work restoring Victorian and Edwardian properties, enjoy walks on the beach with our dogs and buy and cook local foods.
The blog shares the highs and lows of what we get up to in our Andalucián mountain hideaway and our English seaside town.

I hope you enjoy what you read.  Please do leave me a comment, I love to hear from people who pass by and stop for a while.

  1. Hi, Thanks calling by on my blog. Yours is great too. Love some of these recipes and guess what…we’re having chicken tagine this Sunday having seen yours! Will be looking in again. Have a lovely weekend. Trevor.

  2. Hello, thank you for passing by my blog, I think yours is very interesting, gonna snoop among your recipes! :mrgreen:

    Hugs by Kiotta

  3. Your blog looks wonderful! I’m enjoying reading about the process of buying land and building a house in another country, since I’m going through the same things in Montana. I’m also really excited about all the recipes 🙂

    1. Hi there and thanks for stopping by. Liked the look of your blog too. Building a home is fun, stressful but eventually rewarding! Hope you have some good experiences with yours. Glad to hear you like the recipes too, thanks so much.

    1. Hi Karen and thanks for your kind words. I love writing, and fortunately or unfortunately – this is all based on my real experiences! There will be another chapter in a few days, so watch this space…

  4. Oh my goodness, I’m so delighted to have found your blog. Your recipes look incredible. Cannot wait to try your lamb one — yummmm yum! & how romantic to be fitting out a home in Spain. Love it.

    1. Thanks for your kind words, hope you enjoy my blog. Just popped over to yours. Enjoy your “single” summer. I spent a long time being single, and have to say it has lots going for it too…be yourself, enjoy life and steer clear of the bad guys! You might enjoy having a giggle reading some previous posts about my Blind Dates with Big Man….!

    1. It can be quite a headache, but worth it in the end. We moved into our house 3 years ago – and are still “discovering” little quirks! More stories to come, and thanks for subscribing, do hope you enjoy.

  5. I think I’m going to enjoy perusing this blog. My wife used to work in a Catalan restaurant in our home town (Portarlington, about 2 hrs from Melbourne, on the bay). Great people, great food.

    Their signature dish was mussels; unsurprisingly, as the restaurant was 100 metres away from the local pier, where the mussel fleet was based.

    1. Welcome aboard! Good to have you here and thanks for your kind words. Think I went to Portarlington when I was in the Melbourne area about 8 years ago – I recall wonderful fish and seafood there too. Do hope you enjoy more of what you read!

  6. Thanks for visiting HomeCookLocavore.com! You live in my favorite place in the entire world. I studied there when I was 16 and despite the heat and the dialect that took me oh so long to understand, I dream about Andalucia all the time and make it a point to go back every few years.

    Your food looks amazing and real. What a treat.

    1. Thanks too for your visit – and for your kind words. It´s great that you do manage to get back here every so often…but that dialect, I´m still struggling!!

  7. Hi fellow Andaluza, just found you through Rufus (Greg). I love your little huerta, so jealous, we live in the pueblo so only have a roof terrace but my chilli plants and herbs keep me happy!!

    1. Well lovely to meet you! I have just signed up to your blog which is wonderful (and stunning photos). I always thought it must be tough for vegetarians here in Spain but you seem to make it work – and how! Am just looking at a bowl of chick peas which I was going to turn into Puchero but I think I´ll put a few aside for one of your recipes! Look forward to reading more. Do come back soon!

  8. Hi! Thank you for visiting my blog 4otomo.wordpress.com and for leaving your wonderful comments 🙂 You live in an incredible part of the world, and hey! what can I say, I’m envious 🙂 I’ve started reading your building a house in Spain blog, and the trials and tribulations of finding one, well, the perfect house for me presented itself to me on my hike :-), complete with the spanish “for sale” sign, just one slight little problem with the budget though, you need a lot more south african rands than I have, to buy that many euros :-):-), so for now I’ll just have to settle with reading more about “building a house in spain”. Thanks again 🙂

    1. Well, thank you to you too! I meant to say GR7 in my post and not GR/!! Spain has become much more expensive even in the time I´ve been here 😦 Hope you continue to enjoy your trip if you´re still here! Take care, Tanya

  9. Hi! No problem, I understood it to mean GR7. Unfortunately, I’m not travelling there at the moment, my post was about my time there a while ago. But, I’ll be back, no doubt about that 🙂 kind regards Mo

  10. Hi Tanya, I have my firework pictures ready (took them from our master bedroom balcony last eveing) and wanted to do a slide show, tried, but it went no where. If you have time, and if you want to, (please if you are to busy or whatever just say so…)I would like some ABC directions, they would have to be pretty step one, step two, it is hard for me to do somethings… sometimes (head injury). Thanks so matter how you decide, if you know where I could go you could give me that, I have tried with some directions and am getting no where, later….RaeDi

    1. No problem, will head over to your site and post you the link from JamieAnne which is how I learnt. If that doesn´t help, give me another shout and we´ll see if we can come at it from a different angle!

  11. Hi there and thanks for liking my “Chill Out” post on bitsandbreadcrumbs.wordpress.com. I’m a newbie out here in the blogosphere and was so happy to see that you visited! I really like your blog, too, and am glad to know about you. I’ll be visiting often. Cheers!

  12. Your blog is really beautiful and interesting! I’m from Mumbai, India and recently started my own food blog and you were the first reader to ‘like’ a post. So I thought I must stop and say thank you and hello!

    1. Thank you for the return visit and all your kind comments – do hope you enjoy doing your blog as much as I enjoy doing mine. Will visit you again soon 🙂

    1. One more thing … Love your banner picture of the bouganvilla and hope it is on your property. It would be so nice to wake up to a view of that every morning… John

      1. We do have a small bouganvilla which after 3 years is finally taking off…it seems we were too nice to it. You have to treat it mean! The photo was taken in the spring in Cordoba (happy memories as this is where we had our first “date”) where the annual “Patios of Cordoba” event is held. One day, hopefully, ours will look as good as this!

  13. Thanks again for stopping by my blog! When I’m not running MGF, I’m actually a full-time day student studying Spanish! Your blog is heaven sent – I will definitely be referring to it often. 🙂

  14. I love your blog, absolutely marvelous! You live a life I some day dream of! I search for more time to spend on my blog, but with work, raising 2 children, animals & my husband gone; currently he is deployed – time is limited. However, cooking is my biggest passion & brings me such happiness! Thanks for the comment, best to you!

    1. Thank you for your lovely words. I liked your blog too! I have nothing but admiration for you – must be tough. Enjoy your cooking…I feel the same about it 🙂

  15. Hello! I happened upon your blog, through another blog. I too am based in Andalusia, and have tried my hand at planting (although on a much smaller scale and failed miserably). Will definitely be looking at your blog more often for some much-needed gardening advice!

    1. Hi Kim and so glad you popped in for a visit! More gardening advice to come….am off to have a little nose around your blog now! I´m guessing you are in Sevilla, probably melting right now with the heat 😦

      1. Yes, you are right – I am in Seville and sweltering too 😦 Leccy bill will be high this month!

  16. Hi, Nice bloggy thingy. Some luscoius looking tucker there. We’ve just moved down to the Alpujarra after about 6 years in northern Sweden. Big differences, not least in the foodstuffs available! Keep rolling along there.

    1. You´re in a lovely part of Andalucia – and yes, you´ll notice some huge differences. If you want a giggle about how I adapted at the start, take a look at some of the chapters of City Slicka to Spanish Chica! Thanks for subscribing too – hope you continue to enjoy the blog.

  17. Loving reading about your experiences. Isn’t it fabulous to be able to live a life where you can grow your own food, have your own chickens and have space!! Especially after a life in the city. Looking forward to reading more.

  18. Hello!

    I am the Houses Editor for IKEA Family Live magazine – it’s my job to arrange photo shoots of interesting homes around the world (23 countries) that show how people mix IKEA with their own style. At the moment I am particularly looking for homes in Spain and wondered if you might have IKEA in your home and be interested in a feature about it for the magazine? A long shot I know but if so I’d love to hear from you bethan.john@augustmedia.com with some photos. Or if not perhaps you have friends or readers of your blog who might be keen?
    Really pleased I came across your blog – must be time for lunch I think!

    Bethan John, Houses Editor, IKEA Family Live magazine

  19. Hi Tanya, I am glad to see you back, I missed you! Thought about you and hoped that you and the Big Man had a wonderful, quality filled time on your vacation/holiday that you took. Cannot wait to hear all about it! I just wanted you to know that you are one of those souls that got me ‘more’ interested in blogging and writing down what I see, feel and love in life. You are an inspiration to so many souls and I am sure I am not the only one that missed you while you were away! Welcome back and get writing and cooking girl and sharing with the lot of us! ….RaeDi

  20. Hello! Thanks for stopping by my blog. Yours is so up my alley combining food and all things Spain (former Spanish major and teacher). Very cool! I hope someday my photographs look stunning like yours!

  21. Thanks for stopping by my blog. I enjoyed your’s so much and it brought back wonderful memories of a trip that took to the mediterranean with my sister 2 years ago. She has since passed so this was truly sweet! Keep posting…

  22. Hello Tonya, I have nominated you for ‘The Most Versatile Blogger Award!’ I follow very few blogs, only those that I really enjoy and when I received this award I thought of your blog. It never lets me down and I enjoy it very much. Do deserve this my friend… Thank you….RaeDi

    This is not easy for me…

    Tikktok has nominated me for this award, The Most Versatile Blogger Award! I do not know whether to thank her or block her. I am not one who likes to receive any type of notice, other than please read my blog and subscribe… it is hard for me to accept this award… if you want to know the truth… I went to one class reunion since I graduated in ???? (I will put it like this it has been a very long time) and the only class reunion I went to was the 25th.

    I knew the gal that was putting it all together and she was honored with being picked the speaker. We were good friends in high school and I was invited over one afternoon so we could get caught up on things, it had been quite a while. When she started talking about the little awards for who came the furthest, had changed the most, changed the least… my brain started thinking, yes it does that once in awhile… Please do not let it be me, I knew deep down I probably had come from the most miles away, unless someone was living in Europe or Asia that I was unaware of, but I let her know that to make sure it was not me, I wanted no added attention to myself. I thought there were no possibilities my name would be called for any of the other awards, just for who had traveled the furthest. We talked about that and then I remembered that one of our classmates, became a pilot in the Air Force and had been stationed somewhere in Asia and had just returned stateside and was in Alabama. I said since he just returned and was on his way from just getting to Alabama then he should get it.

    That evening sure enough some thought I had came the most miles and my friend brought up our classmate/friend the pilot and that he was just getting in from… and he got the award. To my horror the next award was for who had changed the least, countless voices all called out my name. I looked at my friend up at the podium (pleadingly)she then asked if there any more nominees? To my relief two of my classmates’ names were called… after a few anxious minutes it was decided with applause and my friend named the winner and thank goodness it was not me. All that was said are you sure… We were all I was very sure!

    Now back to this award… Since she has done all the backup work and finding out just exactly what this award is or does, I leave that to her! Maybe she would like to write this too! All kidding aside, thank you Tikktok for thinking of me… you should not have!

    I need to list 15 blogs I enjoy reading then link them and let them know I have nominated them for this award. I need to list seven things about me; and I need to display the award badge! (HELP)

    15 Blogs I Enjoy (not in any order):
    2.Cooking in Sens
    3.Chica Andaluza
    4.tales of ambrosia
    5.Jules & Jules do food & wine
    6.Camerahols/Food,Photography & France
    7.the bountifulplate
    10.Oneheartonemind’s Blog
    11.A Word from the Bird
    12.Mango, Chili and Z
    13.mixed gems
    14.meanderings minds

    Seven Things About Me:
    1.I do not know how to display the award badge!
    2.It is hard to make a list when all you have to do is read: JUST ME, which tells you everything!
    3.My biggest fear is height, no… maybe mice… or it could be spiders…
    4.I do not like frying bacon.
    5.I will not swim in water that I cannot see what is swimming with me, but love the beach…
    6.Love doing watercolors more than cooking.
    7.Love our baby, a pixie bob named Ninnie.

    The Versatile Blogger Award:

    If you have been nominated by someone and you claim this award by displaying it on your blog, you must meet certain criteria. Here is the list:
    1.You must give credit to the person that has nominated you and create a link to their blog in your post, (as I have done in the above paragraph.)
    2.You must create a list of 15 blogs that you enjoy most and link to those as well. Then you must go and tell them you have nominated them. That means if you do not have 15, you cannot do this step. If you do not complete this step, then you cannot claim this award.
    3.Finally, you must create a list of seven things about yourself.

    Thank you Tikktok for nominating me, you are such a darling! Is Cocoa still screeching? ….

    1. Nooooooo! Please don’t block me! 😆

      Firstly, your photography is too good not to be seen. Secondly, I love you and your blog!

      Thirdly, you don’t have to do anything (even though you already have). 🙂

      Fourthly, to get the badge save the image; upload the image into your files so it has a url. If you want it on the sidebar, go into your dashboard and get into the widgets. This is an image widget. Drag and drop it into your side bar, fill out the info (add the title of the widget/image and paste in the url), and you are good to go.

      Cocoa is not screeching as much, and is an egg-laying machine! She lays nearly every day; every 3rd day she seems to be skipping at this point. We now have a mystery blue/green egg, too! We’re pretty sure it’s coming from Chocolate Chip, but until we catch her in the act, we won’t know for sure. I am thinking there is going to be a coop egg cam in our future so we can watch chick tv in the house and see who is laying what. 😆

    2. Thank you RaeDi for the nomination and for sharing some more about yourself. Don´t like frying bacon eh?! Do hope you´re going to put this up on your blog too for others to share and enjoy. Have a wonderful day!

  23. Chica – enjoyed perusing your blog this evening. I want to visit Spain – I live in Texas. Every time my hubby asks where I’d like to go, Spain just pops out of my mouth before I even think about it. I’ll be visiting again soon – maybe I can convince him it’s the next place we should visit.

    1. It is a great country (and still relatively good value for money). I knwo I used to enjoy coming here on holiday, even before I made my life here. Do hope you make it over and thanks for your kind words and for “visiting” my little blog.

  24. Chica, LOVE the blog. I lived in Spain for awhile during college and absolutely loved it. I look forward to reading your posts! 🙂

    1. Hey Rea (love the name, my best friend is called RIa!) My pueblo is an aldea between Alfarnatejo and Riogordo….teeny, tiny. Have just been flicking round your posts, you´re right, we have a lot in common!

  25. HI chidaandaluza,
    I stumbled across your blog from Spanishsabores. I’m living in Andalucia in Roquetas del Mar working as a language/teaching assistant (auxiliar).

    My dream is to own a piece of land somewhere- grow a garden, have bees, raise chickens and goats, learn how to make cheese etc. Live the simpler life more connected to nature.
    So exciting to hear you’re living your dream and have a great partner in crime to do it with!

    I look forward to reading more of your blog!

    1. So glad you came to visit and liked what you saw! So you´re in Almeria – lovely place. I had to wait quite a while for the dream to come true (and sometimes still have to pinch myself) so I hope that some day soon yours comes true too 🙂

  26. Hi there! Just wanted to let you know that we nominated you for Versatile Blogger – but looks as though, no surprise, you’ve already been nominated! Well, a fun little activity nonetheless. Happy holidays and looking forward to reading lots more in the New Year!

  27. Tanya, I’ve nominated you for The Versatile Blogger award. I realize it’s a “duplicate” for you, but I hope you know how very much I enjoy you!

  28. I look forward to the vicarious pleasures of Andalucia—actually my choice for vacation last fall, but was voted down by some Italophiles!

  29. Always love your posts, though prefer the meat-free ones since I’m veggie! You are amazing the way you come up with endless recipes – I am full of admiration at your boundless energy and inventiveness.

    1. Thank you, that´s so kind! It´s tough being a veggie in Spain. Neither of us are, but we like to ring the changes with plenty of fish and vegetables, so hopefully there will some recipes that are suitable (well, the meat and fish free ones at least!).

  30. Hi Tanya!
    Do you remember me? I’m Sofía, Manuel’s daughter (from Asturias)!
    How are “Big Man” and you? 🙂
    Well, I’ve heard that you’ve lost my e-mail, so here I am! I want you to know that your blog is fantastic. Although it is quite difficult for me to understand some parts (but as the same time it makes me learn and practise hahaha), it is a pleasure to read how you describe every recipe. I wish I had more time to read all of them!

    Now we are in touch, I want to thank you for sending us the olive trees! Dad says that if you give us your e-mail, we will send some pics of them 😀

    I’m waiting for your reply!


    1. Hola Guapa – it´s fantastic to hear from you! ¿How could I forget la chica mas guapa y encantadora de Asturias? So glad you´ve found the blog – it will be good practice for your already excellent English. And I have sent you an e-mail too. Un beso y un abrazo muy fuerte, Tanya

  31. Hi Tanya,

    Thank you for the PM, I manged to sort the issue out, the problem was at my end but I’m not sure how I fixed it ha! Anyway I’m all signed up now and looking forward to reading your posts, thanks, Jenny

  32. Hi!
    I Heart Mondegreens recommended your blog and your recipes are amazing! I am a producer on an American TV show about people who relocate around the world and was wondering whether you might be interested in sharing your story, housebuilding and blogging experiences with our viewers?! Email me on soraya.spiers@leopardfilms.com!

  33. Hi Tanya…visiting today via I am Simply Tia. I’m feeling totally transported by your posts and your lovely recipes. I must plan a trip to Spain, though I have to get to Italy some day as well (being half Italian). Decisions, decisions! Looking forward to your upcoming posts!

    1. It´s always lovely to welcome a new visitor! And I´m half Italian too. Southern Spain was occupied by the Romans for many years so there is a lot in common with our two cultures…I think you´d love it here 🙂

  34. Greetings! I found your blog via another blogger who stopped by my blog. wow that’s a lot of blogs in one sentence, he he. I’m a lover of all things Spanish and hope to retire to Málaga in 8 years. So, I just followed your blog and will be perusing your posts here too. fun, fun!! happy blogging 😉

    1. Hi there Toby and am so glad you “found” me! Thanks too for subscribing. If you´re planning to retire to Málaga you´re in the right place. Although I also feature English and Italian (my heritage) recipes, there´s plenty of Spanish food and culture going on here. Why Málaga, and do you have anywhere specific in mind? How exciting!

      1. what interesting heritage! why Málaga? how to answer that briefly….well, I have been in love w/Spain in general since studying for a year in Madrid over 30 years ago. Brought hubby and kidlet there 2 years ago and hubby fell in love too! We both absolutely loved Málaga and started thinking about retiring there after a second trip for our 20th anniversary. We met in southern California and he has missed the “sea” since we moved to Minnesota. My body started reacting to the cold here so Málaga sure fits the “find somewhere warm to move to” bill so….whew! that’s pretty brief for me 😉 We’d love to find a place in the center of town but also like the idea of a place further out of the city and closer to the shore. A ver lo que pasa 🙂 I look forward to continue perusing your blog. Nice to meet you!

      2. Well, I think you´ve made a great choice and just think of the fun you´ll have deciding exactly where to live! There are plenty of places along the coast just a km or two from the centre of Málaga so you could probably find somewhere that fits the beach/city centre criteria together. Hope you had a great Easter – those will certainly be a huge experience once you move over here 🙂

  35. Hope you find this message among all your fans! I nominated you for a Versatile Blogger Award because I think you are pretty awesome!

  36. Rowena sent me over, and I’m so glad! Have a great time in London – by the time you get back I’ll have had time to do more than roll in the aisles at the prospect of domesticating a 140 person paella recipe:) Loved it!

    1. Welcome and thanks for subscribing and so pleased you enjoyed it! Yes, 140 people is a bit outrageous, I’ll do one soon with regular sized portions 🙂

    1. Thanks Molly – that´s very flattering! Would love to visit your blog but I am in the UK undertaking a HUGE renovation project right now with not very good internet access so once I am back I will pay you a visit 🙂

  39. Found you on ‘where lemons blossom’ – and followed you immediately. As a family we went to Madrid for the first time in June and fell 100 % for this place and its people. Airport was awashed with tears when we finally left after 1 month, only to return again in June 2013! I must admid I was lucky I had the help (and introduction) of a true Madrilena (now living in the UK!!). Ciao Carina

  40. Hello,

    One of the biggest bonuses of blogging is finding a community of like-minded people with whom I can share my passion for food and from whom I can learn an enormous amount.

    You are one of them. I enjoy going through your posts and look forward to doing so for many more years to come.

    I’m nominating you for the “Versatile Blogger Award”. You can check the rules to accept the award through the link here – https://aahaaram.wordpress.com/awards/.


  41. I love your blog! I want to make all the recipes….. Not the same when your fruit is from the local co-op! Haha
    Keep writing so we can all live the dream!

      1. Yes, I think it would be nice in a small Spanish town square with a glass of wine and olives and a beautiful sunset! Haha
        Ah well….. I will just wear it next week to a leaving party! Mind, have you heard how hot it is in England!!??? It might be too hot to wear it!! Lol

  42. Just stumbled here and am glad I did! Lovely recipe ideas, lovely part of the world, lovely writing. One day Ill give up London living too for a bit more space and calm – sounds heavenly!

    1. We are very blessed as we have 2 lovely lives in the calm and space Up our Mountain and the gently nusy life in England near the beach! Welcome to the blog, lovely to have you here with us 🙂

  43. Hola Chica Andaluza. I just moved back to Italy from the Spain I love dearly, so I’m happy to have found your blog. It looks really nice, and I can’t wait to try out your food!

    1. Welcome to the blog – wow, from Spain to Italy, two amazing countries and my heart is split 3 ways between both of them and England – Italian Father, English Mother, Spanish partner 🙂 Lovely to have you here with my little “family”!

  44. Lets take a nice glass of Rioja and drink to “new friends who share birthdays ” !Thanks again for a lovely evening

  45. What a great life you have here Chica! I love chickens, we had chickens growing up, as did my children when they were young. Your lifestyle sounds wonderful, the best of both worlds. Maybe one of these days we’ll bump into one another in Lewes when you are visiting! 🙂

  46. Greetings,

    I’m a frequent admirer of your work on Chica Andaluza, and am the creator of Flavorful World: A Food, Wine, and Spirits Blog. Flavorful World has a monthly interview series where I interview other food bloggers and food professionals. I hoped you might agree to be our October interview.

    Please reply to me at FlavorfulWorld (at) food4u (dot) com and let me know if you’d be interested. If so, I will email you nine questions to which it would be great to receive responses no later than about 10/29/2014.

    Thank you for your time, and continued food blogging success,

  47. ¡Hola y bienvenidos! I hope you enjoyed your visit to Chiconia. Reading some of your blogs has made me nostalgic for the 20+ years I spent most of my holidays in Catalunya, visiting my father. He’s now gone back to England at the age of 91 to live with my brother but I can still smell Spanish cooking in my dreams. Love your recipes: ¡que aproveche!

    1. So glad you like the food on the site – your father sounds like am amazing character! What a difference he must find living in England after so much time in Spain. I know I still feel a bit “displaced” shifting from one coutnry to another – but in a good way!

  48. Just a quick thank you for the olive oil pastry. I am off to make it now for mince pies. Got ill, (better now) but have cut out too much sat fat, so this is ideal. Merry Christmas.
    (PS particularly like the photo of New Zealand..)

  49. Hi Chica Andaluza,

    Thanks for such an rica rica lista de recetas.

    Your blog caught my attention as we are creating a community about Spanish learners, including learning not only the language, but also the culture, the lifestyle and so on.

    I hope you like the idea http://www.spanishgurus.com We have several articles about Spanish that you might find interesting.

    Feel free to contact me in private if you are interested in exchange some articles in our blogs.


  50. Hi from a former Bexhill resident ,1973 – 1999. Since 1999 spending most of our time on the northern Costa Blanca (Oliva). Peter White

  51. Delighted to come across your site (found when googling ‘heuso de cerdo salado’ or ‘salted pork bone’ in Andalucía … ). Love the mix of food, grow your own, travel, Andalucía, and filling your life with things you’re passionate about. Am currently hunting for an easy recipe for a Spanish chocolatey kind of pudding … any ideas? Gracias y un saludo. Becky

    1. Hola and apologies for the delay in responding. Try searching for pudin de chocolate or flan de chocolate. I don’t have any recipes I’m afraid but need to put that right soon! Thank you for your kind words 🙂

  52. How are things, Tanya? I saw you’d stopped by. 🙂 🙂 Haven’t had much time for visiting lately. I presume you’re still in Bexhill? A bit hot for me here, but I’ll adjust (though I quite enjoyed a bit of English rain 🙂 )

I love to hear what you think, please leave me a comment!
