Bendiworm. Bending those worms

They're Here!!!
At last.  My long awaited friends.  My cousins! They're here. I cannot tell you how pleased I am to see them all.  Riff has got big and I like to give him big hugs.  Leven and I are about the same size now and we hang out.  And Saxa can speak English.  It's great.

We were all very excited about the 3 King carnival.  We celebrated it all together last year in Fuengirola.  This year we spent it eating Roscon de Reyes cake on the beach with our crowns on.

4 Kings
Then we walked up the old town.  It was very very busy and we were afraid we might not get to see it.  Then we found a gap and all squeezed in and waited.

Waiting for the carnival
We took big bags with us to catch the sweets.  And then it all started.  Police and Firemen and Paw Patrol.  Drums and lights and whistles and sweets.  They were throwing them at us.  We caught loads.  One hit Saxa thock on the head.  he didn't cry but it must have hurt so much that it itched because he kept on rubbing it.  Leven nearly got squashed by a tractor trying to rescue a stray sweet and Riff sat on Aunty Ragnhild's shoulders and smiled and smiled.

Walk to the cross
The next day we walked up to the cross.  It was a beautiful day.  On the way back down we wanted to go to the beach. 

The boys

So we stopped off at a little bay.  There were a few people on the beach and most of them got up and left when we arrived.  Uncle Kenneth said that maybe we shouldn't stay too long.  So we had a paddle and then left.  It was only later Mama explained that it was a no clothes beach.  So what?

Me and my mates
I see my cousins nearly every day and it is wonderful.  However, we all have colds at the moment so we are a mass of coughing humanity.

My cup overflowerth
Then Aunty Jayne and Aunty Ping arrived with Aunty Joyce and Uncle Keith and Uncle Joe.  Wow.  So may faces, so many beers.  We all went for fish and chips together at Rays in the old town.  We had a lovely evening topped off by brandies on a long walk home.  Oh how I love a party.
