Monday 13th April  Easter Monday Back in February we fumigated our basement as it seemed to be housing some unwanted visitors of the fast-moving, six-legged kind.

I read a heart-breaking story today of a Valencian lawyer unable to attend his own father’s burial because of strict new rules brought in to stop large crowds at funerals.
