Dácil loves Indomie

1 04 2017

Just like her mummy. She loves pasta. She loves noodles. She is perfectly capable of eating properly with her fork but the pleasure of filling her whole mouth with lovely noodles wins every time.





Yone watched Land and Freedom

28 02 2017

And was impressed. Learned the words to the Internationale and found things around the house to dress up… Warning: this is NOT a carnival costume…





A Valentine family afternoon…

Love, love and love to all!





Dácil & Furby

7 02 2017

Furby died. Last year. He was cuddled to death. Although Dácil would also get angry with him and toss him away, sending him flying through the living room, landing hard… He probably just gave up, exhausted. We didn’t replace him straight away as we were glad to be rid of his continuous furbish jabbering the same sentences constantly: a kind of gringo american spanish accent probably done by some underpaid chinese voice “actor”…

The three kings brought Dácil a new Furby. She hadn’t realized she’d missed him until she unwrapped the new one. Some improvements but mostly the same old gringo sentences and his bipolar disorder.

Dácil is glad Furby’s back. She learned to sign Furby in 10 minutes… (Same category as “sweet” and “ice cream”)





Dácil is 9!

22 01 2017

She just keeps on celebrating birthdays… And I’m starting to get used to the fact that she gets through the years in spite of many medical predictions during her first weeks. Who’d have imagined her 9th birthday when she was in hospital, between heart surgeries, full of tubes keeping her alive.

So many reasons to celebrate! And as mum has to work we’ll have a party some other day, and Dácil will have ice cream and presents twice!





Yone with Mateo Gil

15 01 2017

After the film, Yone ran all the way down to meet director Mateo Gil, shook his hand and congratulated him. He promised to send Yone the dvd as soon as it’s out.

Yone’s second premiere

13 01 2017

Tonight’s the night. Project Lazarus is premiered in Spain.The special premiere here in Tenerife is in the capital’s modern art museum, the TEA, as it served as a setting for some futuristic scenes. The TEA has a movie theatre and shows all of its film in original version with subtitles. 

Mateo Gil was present. This young director and script writer from Gran Canaria is responsible for the script of Mar Adentro, Tesis and Vanilla Sky, among others. And his new film, Project Lazarus was shot entirely here in Tenerife, with English speaking actors (Oona Chaplin being one of them). Yone is in a few flashback scenes when the main character remembers his childhood.

Yone brought along his best friend Jaime. He met up with Mateo Gil. They exchanged autographs, had a pleasant talk and promised to get  back together in the not so distant future. What a night!
