We got the nice weather back and today I had lunch with friends on the patio in the sun, it was about 22 degrees Celsius. Sheila is in Germany and made it through a second neck operation, doing very well. Because her surgery was put forward, I missed it and travelling is a little difficult right now. I have packed up the flat here in Mallorca though, and plan to join Sheila on Sunday. I will have to observe a quarantine time in Germany of at least 5 days. We will see what happens.
Usually early January is sunny and mild in Mallorca. Not this year: The last few days have been cold, wet and windy. There is snow on the mountain tops and Puig Tomir is visible from the beach. Fortunately, there are usually a couple of hours of sunshine each day and I can go for walks. Sheila is in Germany for some unavoidable appointments, and helping my parents. My mother spent Christmas in hospital, but is home now and recovering well.
