Paella and sunshine - June 2015

Paella and sunshine - June 2015 This is the time of year when I imagine many of you are looking forward to having some time out, and maybe some sunshine – one of the things I look forward to when we are at our Spanish home, normally with a group of friends and family, is paella. Paella is the centre piece of most traditional Spanish events – truly authentic, totally delicious and very sociable too. I remember, when we were first living in Spain, coming across a fiesta taking place next to a river – this was a new experience...

Another new year ... whizzing by - February 2015

New year is often a time for re-evaluation and change - 2015 is just that - I had planned a revamp of my website which is happening, but is taking a little longer than I had imagined and in the meantime I can wait no longer so am sending this out in the same tried and tested format as before ... enjoy it ... With the new year came a big change in the Taylor camp hence my excuse for being diverted from my website changes. Four weeks ago Emily, our eldest, took the decision to turn her life "on...
