A Menorcan Sojourn — Day Two

The first day of a villa holiday is always dominated by a food shop, isn’t it?   Or in our case two.     I never leave home without tea and milk but it’s hard to bring anything more than that isn’t it?   And I do love a foreign supermarket! Mr B and I did a quick

A visit to the Ronald McDonald House in Southampton

It might be Ramadam and several hours into today’s fast but Abdullah is cooking waffles for anybody who wanders along to the day room on the first floor.    Whilst Abdullah might be observing the ritual of not eating or drinking between sunrise and sunset he is more than happy to cook waffles because it
