Very very poor on the dessert front! I bake my own cakes because the Spanish ones look fab but are just sugary fresh air!! ...

I love the jasmine too.. I´ve a couple by my front terrace andt he smell at night is heavenly. It my favourite place when the sun goes down, the sound of the crickets, the smell of the jasmine.... wonderful. It makes me realise why I love Spain!!

The thing I hate about it at the mo is the dust, most of which is caused by the ammount of building work and road works going on in my area (what recession??) There are two new houses being built with 50 yards of me, one in particular has a crane, lorries up and down the road, constant beeping noises, shouting, bangs, crashes...and dust! Within 2 miles of me there are 5 lots of road works, complete with little men who sit there all day with their stop/go boards, great big bumper trucks, dust, dust and dust!

Love,...... Spain and the Spanish

Hate,.......The Bloody Weather

Before you all fall off your chairs,its just the mid-summer heat I cant handle so I retreat to the land of the midnight sun till it cools off a touch.
Having said that I sometimes hate it here,mid 30s and eaten alive with insects at times,......so confined to barracks either way.

Maybe should have stayed at home in the hills of N.E.England,.........snow in June,......quite normal up there,what more could anyone ask for?

Just no pleasing some folk I suppose........
