Or what, or where, or when? Two days ago it was reported that Spain would go back into lockdown on the 18th September, it caused a social media storm of epic proportion online. Many people didn´t read the article beyond the words Spain, lockdown, and the date set. A different article stated the WHO (World…… Continue reading Government or WHO?
I´ve been thinking of all the places we can go to celebrate. It´s a good idea to prepare in advance, gives you something to do, and proves you´re still sane.During these troubled times, it would be extra exciting if instead of a birthday, (just one single day) we can do a “birthmonth.” Remember, anything´s not…… Continue reading Hey it´s my birthday month
It´s happened fast, really fast, reluctantly experiencing what we hoped would never happen, but here it is. The second wave is on it´s way.Numbers of new coronavirus cases per day are rising again all over Europe. Seeing the figures proves this devastating virus has no favourites. Some countries who experienced relatively low new cases per…… Continue reading So where do we go from here?
Makes me wonder if anyone has ever composed a blog post title like that before. Ah well, there´s a first time for everything.Note, for anyone of a delicate disposition please do not continue reading any further. Over the past couple of days I´ve become best friends with the toilet bowl. A brief, (excuse pun) amount…… Continue reading A blog post from the toilet
The underling of Waitrose International is “Iceland” no not the country, it´s a supermarket that sells overpriced frozen food with a hint of carboard taste. There´s other “not frozen” things there, so being as it´s the nearest shop to us it comes in handy for the likes of milk, bread, booze, and cleaning products.Safety: As…… Continue reading Waitrose International, safety VS irresponsibility
There´s an old saying “it could only happen in America” which usually refers to something oddly humorous. Here´s a list of what we discovered ourselves while there for three months.TV shows with adverts bunged together that seemed to last longer than what you´re watching. (It was before the days of IPTV).Chemists selling ice cream, fizzy…… Continue reading God Bless America
What an utter, absolute shambles they´ve made of opening borders in Europe. I suppose we´re in a “test case” scenario here, but the odds are stacked high since June 21st, and by “high” the biggest pickle is air travel. There´s still hot spot zones within most countries to avoid, some bigger than others.As I write…… Continue reading Opening up in the Schengen Zone
We´ve only been in “Phase 3” (eased restrictions) for 10 years 2weeks tops. But Spain “opened up” yesterday, so what happened to Phase 4? I mean we were supposed to get there first, perhaps it got deleted. No wait, it did.Us natives think it´s too soon, but to be fair the Spanish government have set…… Continue reading This is weird
A few months ago I wrote about us moving house, somewhere further inland. What you get for your money is astonishing. Just 180,000 euros for a big villa with swimming pool, situated at the foot of the mountains. Most of the ones we liked were in a place called Fortuna. So we went there and…… Continue reading A change of heart, mind and soul
Opticians are open now, so sometime last week I walked in with my dead pair of jigsaw glasses. Don´t ask me what day it was, or even which time zone we´re in.First of all, the place was devoid of humans except the little guy stood at the desk, he was pretending to do something important…… Continue reading Oh I see
