One of my favourite things about Spain, was the food. In particular, the breakfasts. Here's why...
On our first morning in Granada, we went to a little cafe-come-bar on the corner, teeming with life, people dashing in, leaning on the counter, smacking down a handful of coins and calling for an espresso before gulping down in one and making a beeline for the door. It was a fantastically chaotic place to people watch. I tried tostadas - hot, toasted rolls smothered in peach jam - but my favourite was the churros, cooked to order, and - more importantly - with chocolate.
That chocolate was thicker than double cream, completely sinful and filled with the deep, silken, rich flavour of molten cocoa. Nigella eat your heart out. A couple of Euros bought me three churros and a cup of this deliciousness to dunk them in. And, needless to say, once the churros were gone, I drank the chocolate.
I wanted to get all this into a page, and I turned a couple of my pictures into fake-Instax pictures. An idea shamelessly "borrowed" from Evalicious.* I felt it gave me an extra pop of interest while leaving plenty of journalling space. I need my journalling space. As far as hidden journalling goes, (Shimelle's blogging prompt number 2), I don't want it to be hidden. I like everything to be there on the page so that no one has to take the album apart to read it. Maybe I'll change my mind one day, but for now, if I don't want anyone to read it, I simply don't show it to anyone, or put it up here.
And now, I'm going to put my marking aside and catch up with last night's Glee. My form informs me that it is "epic".
P.S. Does anyone know anywhere in the UK I can get hold of some of these We R Memory keepers divided page protectors? The shipping was astronomical from the US - more than the entire order so I cancelled. Sad face!
*I couldn't possible confirm rumours that I ordered one of those beautiful new travel journals. Although one of my 2011 resolutions is to do more travelling...
