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!

Today I went to the Cueva de Nerja, which is fairly near where I am staying. The Caves of Nerja stretch for almost 5 kilometres, and the caverns are one of Spain’s major tourist attractions.

A map of the plan of the caves is below, and a link to the website can be found here. (click on the picture for better quality, and the website also includes photos of various areas).

Map of la Cueva de NerjaI had heard about the caves, and thought they sounded interesting, so decided to go with a group of people. They all paid, and I just slipped in with them.

So here I am inside the caves. I know the picture isn’t great, but it said no photography. Now, I don’t know whether it meant no flash photography, because everyone was taking pictures. Anyway, a dark cave with no flash permitted is a bit annoying.

And here are some of the photos I took. It was a really beautiful place, and if you are passing it, I suggest you have a look around (although alternatively there is a virtual tour on the website, which is really cool).

Peace,

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!

In my spare time, there is nothing I like better than to surf the internet. I was pleasantly surprised when I searched, ‘toy cow‘ into the Google Image search, and whilst scrolling through images, I saw myself! 🙂 That made me very happy.

I know that the order of the images that appear will vary on different devices, but I also went on other computers and iPods, and there I was. There was only the one picture fairly near the top, but y’know, it’s a start, and I’m actually quite proud of it.

There I am, right at the bottom of this picture (I’ve put a box around it to make it clearer).

Isn’t that thrilling!?!

People often tell me how delicious Haribos are, and I have to simply take their word for it, because I am a vegetarian and therefore cannot eat sweets containing gelatine. However, in London a few weeks ago, I found some delicious vegetarian (and some even vegan) sweets similar to Haribos, and bought them.

Sweets

They are shaped like cola bottles, dinosaurs, bears and snakes. And no animals are used in the making of these sweets. How cool!?!  know that other places do vegetarian sweets like these, but these are so cool! I was going to take a picture of me eating them once they were outside of the bag, but I accidentally ate them all (yes, all four packets) 🙂

And they’re also cool because they’re organic. Oh, how I love organic products! I gave someone who likes Haribos one to try, and they said that these are really nice and just like Haribos. So I’ve come to the conclusion that if I ate meat, I’d like Haribos.

More sweets are becoming vegetarian nowadays. Even some Haribos are. I’ll have to try some of them at some point. 😀

Sorry I haven’t blogged in ages. I’m gonna start blogging again for a bit. I just came back from a trip to Turkey, so will do some blog posts about that at some point. I also want to write about MI High. MI High is cool.

Bye, Cowie

Recently, I’ve been going outside and looking closely at footprints in the snow. It’s actually very interesting.

Footprints

Just look at that – a mix of human, birds and even a pawprint of a dog in there!

Bird footprints

Though the bird ones are my favourite.

Cat pawprints

And I found some cat pawprints.

Rather interesting, it it not?

My hoofprints

I looked at what mine looked like, but I’m quite light so my feet didn’t reach the floor and they’re quite difficult to see in this picture. My hoofprints aren’t very interesting, I must admit, because they’re just plain circles. However, they are mine and I find it quite cool, personally.

I love the snow. It’s so… cold!?! That wasn’t a very original way to describe it.

I decided to go outside to get a closer look at it (I usually just look at it from inside the house. I’m not a massive fan of the cold).

Snow

Unfortunately it was surprisingly thick and I found myself trapped in the cold, unable to escape – even my coat couldn’t keep me warm.

Snow

The snow was c-c-c-cold. Even colder than I’d imagined.

Snow

When I finally managed so sit up and free my body from the snow, I was shaking.

Snow angel

I decided to make a snow angel. It’s one of those things I’ve always wanted to do.

Snow hat

It didn’t really work and I ended up with some form of a snow-hat.

Snow

And for quite a long time after that, even when I’d gone inside and dried off, I had a massive brain-freeze.

That sounded quite negative. Don’t get me wrong. Snow is great fun, but I’ll have to make sure I wrap up warmer if I go out in it again.
