I talk to them you know, can’t you tell? Mostly it’s nice stuff like “Do what I want you to, else you’ll end up in the recycle bin down the road…” To be fair, they all look after themselves – provided the irrigation systems are working properly, which they haven’t been while we were in…… Continue reading The Plantation
Well, we very reluctantly fly back to Britland on Wednesday. As I sit here beyond 11.30pm Spanish time, writing this OUTSIDE in total comfort. It’s still 30 degrees, (as is the norm) till about 2am. Smug face. Then 25 degrees to 23 C is the lowest it goes, usually around 4am in the morning for…… Continue reading Oh How Cruel!
Yes, Spain has broken all records this year for the longest amount of time without any rain. There’s been nothing fallen from the skies since we were last here in March, and moved into our newly purchased palace – then HAD to go back to Britland for various reluctant reasons. One of our friends told…… Continue reading It’s Official, Spain Forgets What Rain Is
So there we were sat outside one of our favourite little restaurants. I moved my foot and the flip flop underneath it stayed put. Strange I thought? A quick glance confirmed all suspicion. So how was I going to get home? Fortunately there was a little shop nearby, one of those that sells all sorts…… Continue reading Oh No, Total Flip Flop Failure!
Cyril the squirrel finds himself in a bit of a bind: There we were, walking down a deserted country road, and there he was precariously placed and looking mighty confused. “Blimey I was only trying to avoid those noisy cicadas for an hour or two, and look what darn well happened to me…” They don’t…… Continue reading Oops, no nuts up here
Saturday night, down at the mall, the sun’s gradually fading, and the crowds are a’ gathering… For a Beatles tribute band who were FANTASTIC…! “Digitally re-mastered LIVE” from the tinny sounding originals… It struck me that the Spanish can do an American accent as good as we Brits… Notice how nobody stands on the big…… Continue reading LOVE, LOVE, ME DO!
Puny Pun Alert: How cool is that…? All of three vehicles came down our little “RESIDENTS ONLY” road this aft while we were sat outside in the shade, and one of them was an ice cream van…
Brief Observation Mode: Pull a word to pieces and it can create quite an interesting outcome, for example… PARTICIPANTS = Joint ownership of a pair of trousers. On that note I’ll get to the bottom of things the point. Amidst yet another beautiful hot day here, off we went to the local Notaria with our…… Continue reading Willing Participants
No, No, to be fair this was Saturday evening, overlooking a toll road section of the motorway, as we Brits don’t know it… A real crush “rush hour” doesn’t happen anywhere here, why? They have the luxury of well maintained tarmac, and a road network in very generous proportion to the number of cars on…… Continue reading Rush hour in Spain
Thought I’d do a screenshot or two of the weather we’ve been getting since we got here, and what’s in store for this week… So seeing as it’s Tuesday today, let’s concentrate on Tuesday… 38 even? Yes indeed it’s right up there and we’re sat in the shade out on the front terrace. However I…… Continue reading BRING IT ON!
