A bloody good time had by all…

Don’t worry. Still here. Feels like an age since the last post. The weekend just gone was a bit of a blur, where a bad cold has taken hold of the household. An infliction far worse than Covid – Manflu! This is still me writing, I am still alive, this is not a weird introContinue reading “A bloody good time had by all…”

Mañana, mañana…

So, the weekend was done, but whatever, Monday’s are bloody well great now. I do not formally start work until 10AM, just enough time for a stroll down the beach, walk to the park or binge watch postman pat on YouTube – all was fair game. Quality family time. Wife and daughter had their adventuresContinue reading “Mañana, mañana…”

Simple, earthly, and bloody well tasty…

So, we are still here. Enjoying the experience more than ever. I think I can safely say we have started to feel settled; a routine is starting to take shape and the Spanish life is starting to feel ‘normal’.

This wasContinue reading “So here we are… (again)”

Walking in there was like an F1 wind tunnel. I had made the decision to put up with the heat. It was backfiring.Continue reading “Consistency is Key….”

Sod it. Let’s go to the beach…

Holiday week was in full swing. I’d suddenly realised one, we hadn’t been to the beach yet and two, I’d failed to have a decent cafe con leche. This needed rectifying, ASAP. Marbella, the area we had initially scoffed at was the chosen destination. The trip once again looked straight forward on the map, andContinue reading “Sod it. Let’s go to the beach…”

A quick swim it is…

The afternoon arrived. We headed to one of the many Chinese owned shops that seem to sell everything, there appears to be at least one in any reasonably sized town in Spain. We have found that without Amazon (no postal address where we are staying), the local ‘China Town’ store is the next best thing!Continue reading “A quick swim it is…”
