First, the weekend roundup: it started with a visit to a Spanish Charity we support (AMADEM), which runs courses for adults with learning disablities- we had a cheque to present to them and it was there that I learned my something new (which I will share in just a mo)
There was the discovery that a warning light is on in my car and that the speedometer isn't registering anything, followed by some weird and wonderful messages on the electronic dash (in German!), there was some garden-tidying and there was a roast beef lunch with friends.
Now, what did I learn? ....that these- a special type of spring onions....
The Calcotada Fiesta is held any time from late January into February, and is an early herald to Spring , most particularly in the North of Spain and in many rural areas in our locality.
How have I found out about this?....while at Amadem we were given invitations to THEIR Calcotada on February 28...guess what will be my 'something new' that weekend?
Waving to SIAN and the 'Mondayers'...and of course anyone else who has just dropped by!
