Life in 2018

We returned to Moraira from Malta at the end of January and I was able to get into a routine of playing bridge, physio exercises and daily walks of 30 minutes - to aid the rehabilitation of the knee!. These walks were often rewarded by coffee and a bun in one of the few cafes open in Moraira during February.

The Saturday Tournament at JBC after the AGM on February 17th

At the end of February Stephen came out for 4 days. He installed WhatsApp on my phone and tried to teach me Intuition in using it!. Vaguely succeeded in taking photos on it and forwarding them to my computer . We enjoyed a meal at Audrey's - the Michelin Restaurant in the Hotel Diamante in Calpe - where I also used the hydropool for 5 weeks to get the knee moving!

On the Saturday we went up to Bernia, a walk suitable for the recovering knee- aided by new lightweight sticks-& then a very pleasant, but non gourmet, lunch

His visit was closely followed by one from Sally and Margaret. We had a day out at Guadelest, with a lovely lunch in the Michelin Bib Gourmand restaurant, L'Obrer, nearby. Also a birthday lunch for Margaret in Zensatez.
