Ahh, you thought I was going down to the beach to build sandcastles?
No need, the beach came to us. This is what a few spots of sandy rain can occasionally do in the depths of night while you´re off your guard.
Tradesman’s entrance,, couldn´t be bothered taking photos of everywhere else.
Spot the difference,, the clean tiles at the forefront are under the arches outside the house.
The car. Still looks shiny?
Before I got chance to pack a cool box, luxury deck chairs, sun tan lotion, sun glasses, sun hat, designer flip flops, sun brolly, beach towel, cocktail shaker, E reader, and sit out in the garden. Dave got down to the business of cleaning up.
I mean he could have waited a while, filling up a bucket of water and sprinkling dyed blue salt in it was next on the agenda.
Oh the irony,
I was sat outside anyway.
I can see the Med from my chair.
Later on,, after the garden hose spoiled all the fun.
It´s a good idea to park your car up outside someone else´s house while hosing it down.
Tradesman´s entrance, done.
Front terrace, done.
Bedroom terrace, pending.
Roof terrace, pending.
Ah well, never mind, the big warm up is already starting.
19 degrees C in the shade, add on another 10 degrees in the sun. Yes, really.
Most probably no more drops of sandy rain, or any rain till November.
2013 broke all records for hottest summer.
2014 broke the 2013 record.
2015 broke the 2014 record.
2016 broke the 2015 record.
And so on and so forth.
It was announced by the Spanish met office last year that Summer officially lasts NINE months now. The big warm up starts earlier and the cool down starts later.
Hey ho, off we go. Bring it on.
Right that´s it, I´m going up to the conservatory to do 7k on my exercise bike while surrounded by views of the Med..
