While the Abbot’s away on business, Alfred here has taken to drinking the sacramental wine himself. Out of respect I cropped the photo because the rest of the bottle is not well hidden amidst his undergarments, along with a whisky chaser… No wonder he’s wearing a wobbly smile, Hic…
A guided tour of our Local Bar… Walkway through to beer garden number two… Outdoor bar number two… Oh, and they have rock concerts here too… I kid ye not, all these photos were taken just yesterday afternoon. 30th January, middle of winter 2014… Awesome… Anyone for a beer…?
Flushing Meadows, Services Elite, call them what you like, but these are the poshest bogs I’ve ever visited… Smells like a rose garden in there too, and although it’s not advisable I’m sure it would be perfectly feastible feasible to eat off the floor. Of course I wouldn’t know about the men’s, over the…… Continue reading Posh Toilets
Tonight’s sunset… Awesome after a HOT day… PS: I could say I’m missing “Wi-Fi on demand” as per norm, but I’m not…! To be fair it would be asking a lot to rent a villa for 4 months with free access to cyberspace. So the local bar has to suffice every few days, while Dave…… Continue reading Fluffy clouds on FIRE

Oh and we all got a “goody bag” with tinsel garlands, silly hats and streamers to…… Continue reading Rockin and a rollin on New Years Eve
Well, the other day clever Heather here locked us both outside on the balcony… It took about one hundredth of a second to realise what had happened, and that CLICK sounded like a thunderbolt from on high. We usually put a wedge in the door… But it wasn’t there… And they only lock from inside……… Continue reading Lock Down
Not everywhere in Spain is going down the drain… I could get into the politics and spin of what we hear about it, but it’s not my place. So make of this what you will… Just 2 miles from where we are, (the walk takes us past all of 5 abandoned properties), this apartment complex…… Continue reading So who says Spain’s gone bust?
Even in winter: Someone gets the Hoover out every night…
