Shrove Tuesday is a brilliant day, because people make me pancakes. I know I should be interested in it for religious reasons but they have been forgotten over time by some people and so the day is less meaningful and an opportunity for people (like me) to make and eat loads of pancakes!

Pancakes!
Just look at my pancakes! I ate four whole pancakes! And I gave them different toppings – chocolate, strawberry, maple syrup and lemon and sugar. It’s the most fun I’ve had in ages!

I really do look forward to Pancake Day every year, and I’ve chosen to give up chocolate for lent. I hope I don’t forget and accidentally eat some!

I hope you had nice pancakes too!

Hello fellow bloggers and friends,

Today I ate some paella (vegetarian, of course 🙂 ) and y’know, it was nice.

EDIBLE! Just thought I’d share that with you. Lovely!

Hope you are all having a nice time,

Recently, I have enjoyed looking at the moon. I have taken pictures when I went camping and this evening in Spain, when the sky looks particularly interesting.

The only problem is that my camera ain’t great, so although it can zoom quite well, the quality isn’t very good.

But I quite like the pictures I have taken.

Moon

This one is the one I took when I went camping. I quite liked the position of the moon through the trees, so chose to take a photograph of it.

Then recently in Spain, there have been many clouds in the sky. The moon here is full, which is rather exciting as well.

Last year when I came to Spain, I spent a long time collecting the ‘Gracias por su visita’ serviettes from restaurants and cafés. This year I came across one and the memories came flooding back. I’ve been keeping an eye out for them, but have only come across two so far 😦

Serviettes
But at least I’ve found some!!

Thrilling, eh?

Today I mastered swimming *cue applause*.

Paddling
I gradually lowered myself into the cold water, with the security of wearing my armbands and sitting in the rubber ring.

Armbands
Then I removed the ring and was very happy because I floated. I practised swimming with the armbands, but wanted to challenge myself to see if I could swim without them.

Swimming
And I could! I am enormously proud of myself.

Relaxing
So I spent today relaxing in the water. I don’t fear water any more!

The only thing I hate is drying off – I got out of the pool two hours ago and am still soaking wet and freezing. BRRRR!

Here in Spain there is nothing I love more than to come across a good ol’ gecko.

And I did!

This gecko was in a shower. Bless it.

Gecko
I just had to get a picture with it. So here you have it – me with a gecko. Lovely.

WordPress has brought it to my attention that I started this blog just over a year ago, and so I am very happy.

Thanks everyone for all of your support. You have made me a very happy cow, and I will make sure to keep this blog running because it is one of the things I really enjoy doing in my spare time.

More blogposts coming soon. I’ve recently been helping a friend of mine with revision so haven’t had much time to write on this blog, but will get back to making regular blogposts soon. Also, I will soon make another issue of the Life Of Cowie magazine, because I have received kind comments about it and I have also chosen a winner for the drawing competition. For your chance of winning and being in the next issue, send me your picture of me to cowieash@live.co.uk

Peace,
Cowie
