Café del Duende: Flamenco In Valencia

Over the weekend, we found ourselves child-free, thanks to my in-laws who came to visit last week from the UK. They kindly offered to take the children off our hands so that my husband and I can spend a little alone time together. We didn’t waste any time organising what we wanted to do, which was to spend the weekend in the city. Check out

Fallas: From Penguins, Sponge Bob to R2D2

There is no easy way to say this but, after all, our hard work, on Monday our ninot did not make it out of the cremá. This year we had another good turn out at school, as expected parents and children created and delivered great artwork on the theme of film and music. You can see from this colourful pile of art just how much

My upcoming trip to the UK

Flights and hotels are booked the only thing left to do now is to look forward to seeing my much-missed family and friends! This trip will also be a little break for me, sin hijos and all! How I treasure these little breaks

RECIPE: Scrambled Eggs with Spinach and Jamón Serrano

Scrambled Eggs with Spinach and Jamon Serrano

It’s been a while since I shared a quick recipe with you, so I want to share something that’s really easy to make and one of my favourite tradional Spanish breakfast – scrambled eggs with spinach and jamón serrano (revuelto con espinaca y jamón). My husband prefers this to be served in a bocadillo, but I find it far too heavy to be eaten with

Introducing Our Ninot for the Fallas

These past few days I’ve been occupied with my youngest sons school project. Every year, the kids are asked to create a ninot for the cremá. This years theme is about films and music, and every year the students deliver impressive creations to celebrate the end of Fallas. The kids (parents) are given two weeks to create something amazing! To be honest, I think it’s

Chess In Spanish Schools

When you think about education, the first thing that comes to mind is probably not playing a game. However, some games are designed to increase a child’s learning potential. One such game is the thought provoking and strategic game of chess. My 7 year-old have recently started to play chess at school as a part of a new scheme introduced by the European Parliament to

Things I Do When My Husband Is Away

Things I do when my husband is away

My husband doesn’t go away often, but once in a while his job requires him to travel to the U.S for a week or so. Having been together for 13 years and working constantly with each other all day everyday, meaning that since we got together, we’ve not been apart for too long. Unless of course he has to go away on business trips or

Fireworks & Paellas

Fireworks and Paellas

This week has gone far too quick. I can’t believe that it’s already been a 7 days since our trip to Barcelona. Now, here I am again getting the usual things sorted for school tomorrow. I really need an extra day just to recover from the weekend! The boys have been good, we didn’t have too many issues, apart from the usual stuff. They haven’t

Why Going To The Fallas In Valencia Should Be On Your Bucket List

Fallas in Valencia

So, it’s that time of year again, as the days get longer and the weather gets warmer there is no mistaking that Spring and the Fallas festival is just around the corner. If I was to describe the Fallas in Valencia to anyone who has not experienced it before I would say that it’s probably the noisiest and the most creative fiesta in Spain! Every
