Yesterday was a little frenetic so is being reported in retrospect. We started clearing up after ourselves and making sure that the house was presentable to hand back to its owners, Chris and Yvonne. That was followed by a shopping trip (well, two, actually) to get some food for their return. Since, on our previous trip, I had preserved some of the then plentiful supply of local lemons and these remained unused, I decided on a lamb tagine to fill the bellies of the weary travellers. Once that was on, I even bought a sponge and washed their car so they would be collected in a presentable set of wheels. As light faded, it was time to head off to Alicante airport to meet their 6:30 PM flight. As luck would have it. easyJet got them in 15 minutes early and they were waiting for us at the arrivals exit. Then it was back home to polish off the tagine and a few bottles of hooch.
Today it was all change as Chris and Yvonne drove us back to Alicante to catch our 12:10 PM return flight. All went without hiccough and we escaped Luton Airport where we were met by our neighbour Paul and ferried back home. Since his kitchen is out of commission, we seem to have been volunteered to prepare dinner for the four of us this evening. That’s great and will provide some entertainment for what might otherwise be an anticlimactic evening.
