Goodness it takes stamina to be a Catalan.

Barça is winning 6-2 over Madrid!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

YEAHHHHHHH!HHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!

Tied up the league, thankyouverymuch!

BARÇA!!!!!

So much is on today I don't even know where to start.

Saw some Gegants, actually, quite a lot of them, here are a few to give you a sense of it all.....





You can see just how huge these things are...there are people inside carrying them, plus tenders walking outside in case they tip, plus lots and lots of musicians.....

Youngest had her lemonade stand with her friends again, All Day. They branched out into necklaces and then started simply enjoying making necklaces.

I actually got some painting done which was heavenly.

Eldest was off with buddies playing at 10pm, and youngest is still out playing in the street. 10pm.

Now we are off to correfoc.

More later.

Your font is HUGE! Startled me. Just as those Gegants do. Scary.

Sounds like a full day!

Those guys are huge!

When do the Spanish sleep??? They don't seem to need sleep like normal people.

Beth, I am trying to fix the fonts, they seem to be all excited.

She, they are freaking enormous and weigh a ton....they want me to join the group that organises them, I am hesitating a bit.

Helen, they don't. That's why the coffee is so good.

Think I've got it now, apologies for the multiple multiple posts...the preview looked fine, but then once it was up it wasn't fine at all.....

Sounds like a busy and fun day. Wish I was there to check out the local culture. And I could use a lemonade and a necklace right about now.

JG, it is pretty amazing all the stuff that goes on. Lemonade is always good isn't it. Do you stop at lemonade stands usually?
