Spring time and Christian Confirmations.
Although I moved down to southern Spain to experience a milder winter, I had a close one that suddenly died away from me - my father. So the winter turned very rough on me after all.
Then, when spring time comes, it helps to embrace the brighter side of the year. A close friend and her husband invited me to their son’s Confirmation and paid the fares to make sure I could attend.
It was a weekend filled with joy, love and great bonding.
My 10 years old cat started to get bored and hardly had interest in anything else than waking up when there were served meals. Needless to say that he’s neutered, and therefore gotten lazy on his older days.
At Christmas-time, I took care of an other cat, which played well with him. I realized that visit was a good thing, because he moved around a lot more.
So - my next thought was to add another cat to the household. And I did.
I went to the local shelter, picked up a sweet 7 months old. She was so sweet to people but turned into a bully towards him. She attacked him whenever he got closer to me, she attacked him on his way out of his litter-box and she chased him away from his own food.
My old cat started to pee in the bath tub and then suddenly on the table. I realized I had to do something.
I had to separate them and shut her out on the veranda whenever I left the apartment. (I live in Costa del Sol, so don’t worry about the temperature).
BUT, the big next thing that actually stopped the bullying, was to feed my old cat first and the little one the second. That did it!
Feria de Sevilla
Sevilla Festival is the second largest festival in Spain. We all know that Sevilla is hot in the summer, but yesterday was April 20th and it was 27-33C degrees. I like it hot, so it was a nice pre-taste of the summer to come.
There were so many fantastic costumes, dance, music, food and dressed up caravans with stylized horses and mules. A lot of new impressions.
But the greatest thing of all, was to be with old friends, new friends, boyfriends and having a good company. Yes we did.
Cat and owl playing - Fum & Gebra - Perfect friendship! (by megaxibeca)
An amazing video about an unusual friendship. What if we could learn from this and utilize our differences than to waste energy to make us equal? We can never be that, except from equal respect. It seems that this “couple” has come to that understanding :-)

I got myself a new phone for Xmas -
This is for you who doesn’t like touch phones a n d/or is an expat who needs two sim cards and is tired of dealing with two separate phones.
I loved my #HTC_ChaCha due to the qwerty keyboard and high resolution screen. The Samsung Galaxy Y Pro Duos seems to keep up with the HTC even if the camera lacks flash and has a slightly lower res on the screen. I would recommend this new one anyway :-)
