I've said it before but it bears repeating; we've met some of the nicest people (both English and Spanish) since we moved to Spain.
John and Jean, who are in England at the moment took the trouble to bring me a card and a gift before they left in December. After the item about my birthday yesterday, John and Carol brought me a card to help make up the numbers. Then this morning Mel and Lilian brought me a card and a gift. Obviously concerned that I should have a cake for my birthday, they brought a selection of Spanish cakes for Christmas - a surtido.
Many thanks to all of you and to those who took the trouble to send me emails. Your kindness is very much appreciated.
