The main purpose of our visit was to visit the three main art galleries.We booked all our tickets online before we left the UK.Our first and favourite museum was the Museo Thyssen Bornemisza which had a special Impressionism and Open -Air Painting exhibition.
Our second day we went to the Prado which was our least favourite.The Garden of Earthly Delights by Hieronymus Bosch is in here,lots of Rubens,Goya,Raphael.
Our third day we went to Museo Reina Sofia.This had a special Dali exhibition but I am not into Surrealism so it didn't do a lot for me.
Photography is not allowed so below are some photos of postcards we brought back to remind us of our trip.

Happy Easter.Sorry there are no photos but I have left the camera at my daughter's.We were invited over for lunch.Mike's mum was staying so Ruby and Emily had two Grans and a Grandpa to play with.They did an Easter egg hunt and then we had a wonderful lunch.After lots of games etc we came home ,back to snowy Mold.The snow is going down but very,very slowly.C has managed to dig our other car out but the mounds of snow are huge.In the town centre they were loading lorries with snow and taking it away!!I am sure Spring is just around the corner and when it comes we will so appreciate it.

Following on from this morning's post we now have eight inches of snow and it is still snowing.We tried to get the car out bit it was so dangerous we retreated back home and after much digging from c he managed to get the car back on the edge of the drive.He then walked down to Mold to get some essential supplies(having an empty freezer!).We are not venturing out to the theatre although the performance is going ahead.Being only five weeks on from major surgery on my knee it would be rather risky.What a great excuse for lots of crafting over the next few days!
