Sunny January in Andalucia

After a wet beginning to the week the sun has shone consistently, renewing my faith and statement of "there´s always blue sky in Jaén".

Ok it´s not exactly true but feels like it.

Today we had a small order of logs and stacked them, then went to Casa El Reguelo our holiday home and picked our olive trees, all five of them. Not worth the effort say my boys, I disagree. We´ve had between 45 litres and 15 litres of extra virgen olive oil for the couple of hours it takes us to pick and bash our trees. It´s a great feeling have stacks of oil in the cupboard, can´t live on it I know but what a sense of satisfaction.
