oh yeah, I was doing a blog!
Friday night. It’s quiet. Too bloody quiet. All I can hear are the waves softly crashing outside the apartment. I’m sat on the sofa with both child and wife already in bed. I could be watching Rocky 4 but no, I chose to attack the blog. It’s been too long my friends, too blooming long.Continue reading “Basketball Diaries…”
There is rain forecast today and tomorrow too. Are you ready for it? Get everything inside. It’s going to be quite the downpour. This is not your normal English dreary fine rain; this will be raining Dogs and Cats.
Timeline check. It’s the beginning of October and it’s been another day on the beach. The autumnal weather has not escaped us though, wind and rain last night meant post work beach time was not happening. However, I realise again I’m already a week behind where we left off… The Saturday was as relaxed asContinue reading “Nice little Saturday…”
It was 4AM. I was already stirring from the heat. My wife was once again in the other room with the ceiling fan and a newly acquired fan from the Chinese shop..

A hire car had since been acquired locally now my license had arrived, all coming together nicely. Friday had arrived and I still needed to pack a case, it wasContinue reading “Let’s get on with it…”
The second car had to go. The precarious buy of a TT when my wife got her new job a year ago now needed to be sold. It was a fun car to drive, but needs must. It went in the first week, which was great. Essential buffer funds were acquired. Flights had been bookedContinue reading “What a waste of time…”
So the plan to move to Spain for up to 6 months and live out lockdown in the sunshiine was on. Work seemed cool with it, first major box ticked. But then how were we going to fund it. As soon as my wife’s redundancy was announced, I panicked and immediately requested a mortgage breakContinue reading “Preparation is Key…”
Well, what a first week. To set the scene, this is being written with a freshly poured glass of Rioja beside me outside in temperatures still over 20 degrees, we arrived in Spain yesterday, but wait. My 2 year daughter is crying. Bear with me, back in a sec… literal crickets, silence. I haven’t moved,Continue reading “So here we are…”
