Last week I wrote about happiness. This week is the turn to love.

 Valentines is around the corner and everyone seems to be a little bit more happy. Or maybe it is because January is almost over, and let’s be honest, it is not the best of months. And yes, I agree. Valentines was invented by the big brands just to give us another excuse to spend our money. It is such a post-Christmas overspending withdrawal syndrome.  But leaving the consumerism aside, Valentines give us the chance to give and receive love.

How difficult is sometimes to guess what our heart is trying to tell us. Quite often our lives are too busy trying to meet all those obligations we have, in most cases, self-imposed.

Tasks that quite often we are not keen to do. That doesn't make us happier. That steal our time to do what we really would like.

This week I have something exciting to tell you. Is not a jam related thing. Is not even a food related thing. But it´s so exciting I really need to share it with you.

We have a donkey!!!

Yes, a donkey, a real brown, furry, gentle and adorable donkey. His name is Star and we were visiting him last weekend.

Christmas is over.

Completely absolutely ended.

If your Christmas tree is still in your living room is time to take it away. No, is not giving a vintage look to the room. Yes, it´s starting to look odd.

Every time I'm on holidays I try to visit the local market. For me, it is a perfect way to meet the people, the customs and the traditional foods of the area.

I can easily forget some of the things I see in the places I've visited, but I always remember the smell, the colour and the people of their markets.
