I was home by 5 pm or so and it was raining so hard we had to skip on our walk. Instead we watched the final episode of El Principe which left me crying my eyes out. I hate bad endings. We are now missing the characters in the series enormously and have yet to find a good replacement.
If last week I wrote that Puigdemont had been imprisoned in Germany, this week I have to tell you that on Friday he was released on bale. The German judge who has to decide on his extradition to Spain thinks that the crime of "rebellion" has no counterpart in German law. This makes no sense for me. If we are in the EU, I think that each country should trust the judicial system of all the others and return criminals for trial in their own country. So now he is out and about again and the soap opera continues.
Saturday came and it was Oli's boyfriend, Miguel's birthday. He feels more like a son than a son-in-law as we are very fond of him. We had breakfast together and here is the birthday boy with Pippa in his arms. She loves him as does Elsa our lab.

And today is Sunday, Easter Day for the Russian Orthodox. I can imagine how full the lovely Russian church we saw in Altea last week will be today. So Xhristov Vaskresi (Christ has risen) to all you Orthodox believers.
Today is a sunny day, one of few, and Oli and Miguel will be here for lunch. I love family lunches. I shall be making "cocido madrileño" and as I am running late, I should leave you now, publish this and print a copy for my Father.
Hoping you all have a good week ahead, cheers till next time,
