|A photo of myself in the mirror in Suzy's empty bedroom on Saturday morning, looking decidedly slimmer. I hope you can notice it too.|
It's raining today. Just one week ago we were in Peñacaballera staying with friends and the sun shone all weekend. I left off last Sunday morning from their delightful house, so let me start from there.

|Mariano Rajoy taking his oath on Monday as the "new" President of Spain's government. Notice the bible and the cross as well as the Spanish constitution on the table where he takes his oath.|

So yes today is Sunday and thankfully the sky is clear and I shall go for my first walk shortly. The music I play on Spotify will be my collection of favourite church hymns; suitable music for a Sunday and will take me straight back in my mind to morning assembly at my school, St. Joseph's College Bradford, or to evening service at St. Peter's church in Shipley.
It's a happy Sunday for two men in particular. Yesterday Andrew Murray became the number one tennis player in the world. That's great for British sport. A less known achievement comes from the prowess of Spanish ice skater, Javier Fernández who yesterday won the prestigious Rostelcom Cup in Russia for the third time by the way. Ice skating is no big sport in Spain and I am always disappointed in such achievements being under reported in the Spanish press. I have had to resort to finding the news from Canadian media. Isn't that sad?

So I will leave you now, publish this and print a copy for my Father before my walk.
Wishing you all a great week ahead,
Cheers till next time
