Easter is almost upon us. And bringing with it the usual press and media contradictions, know what I mean? You open any paper or women’s magazine and half of it is dedicated to seasonal supermarket ads for Easter eggs and hot cross buns and recipes for Easter cakes while the other half flags up dire warnings of growing obesity and tells us that sugar is the new fat.

It suddenly occurred to me on Friday night, just how long it is since I was last in Spain. And how much I miss it. The Sister and I went to celebrate a birthday dinner with our friend D in La Tasca at Lakeside, along with three other friends and we had a fabulous evening.

We laughed and laughed and laughed about old times spent in Ibiza as … Read the rest »
