(maybe another post one day)
Below is a lovely little teapot with cup and saucer.. forgot to put the saucer.. My dear friend Manuela bought it for me, when we went shopping on Monday afternoon to Evora.
Yesterday, I got such a welcomed surprise. My sister in Law Luisa and hubby surprised me (one of Mr M's sisters) I am very close to her.. she phoned to say they were in my village, and that they were waiting for me for lunch. I was just about to start sketching.
They had come all the way from Lisbon to have lunch with me. Good job It wasn't monday.
After lunch we came to my quinta and we spent the hours talking about our times in Africa. She lived most of her life in Angola and part in Brazil.. but also lived with us for a while in South Africa.. we were recollecting so many things.. I was a little sad when they left. It was so wonderful to see her. I had not seen them since Mr M's 80th birthday. We made arrangements to not make it so long next time. She is 11 months older than mr. M.. she is 81..but a young 81 a joy to be with and ever so kind.
wishing you all a wonderful week too. Full of love and happiness.
