Family Visit

I have my family visiting for the last week, Brother Russell his wife Tracy and my sister Jackie arrived last Wednesday morning and I took them back to the airport today.

It was a nice easy visit which is just as I like it, I have a spare car plus a spare scooter so I just hand over the keys and away they go.

They loved the beach and the my office (Beach Bar)

I generally met them down at the beach in the late arvo and then we all went out for dinner at night, I did cook one night!

I sold the motorbike last week as I just wasn't using it plus the scooter is a lot more fun and easy to go shopping in etc.

Im off to see the Dr on Thursday as I have some strange things going on in my head that I want to get checked out.  I really wouldnt worry if it was serious, I would be quite happy to meet up with Elaine again, as long as its quick!

Life Goes On Slowly

Not a lot to report I'm afraid, the weather has cooled slightly but is still very warm, at last the humidity has dropped.

Mojacar is a very small place so it was unusual to see another S-Type in town, it was also an immaculate example which is very unusual in Spain, even top end motors soon get battered .

Im still going for my daily walks along the Paseo, sometimes I venture along the cliff path which is always a lovely walk. 

The visits to the pub have ramped up with the start to the football season, as usual my mate Bombo accompanies me. Sammie comes down but not if there is football or music playing, he cant handle any noise.

Im pleased to say Bombo is 100% fit again, he has also put quite a lot of weight on which is good, the vet seemed to think it was a bacterial infection. Im just so glad he is back to his normal self. 

I have also been going to my favourite beach bar most afternoons for a couple of hours.  It will be shutting for the season in about three weeks which will be a shame.

The water is an amazing temperature, personally I think its too warm.

I went for a drive up the coast to a place called Lorca which is quite a large town, I wanted to check out a place that sold motorhomes and caravans, I really would like a caravan to enable me to get out and about a bit more especially with the dogs in tow.

Sammie was in shock when I woke him from his slumber. 

What can I say about the quality of the Spanish caravans, the description is to say it was like walking around a scrap yard. I wouldn mind if they were cheap, but they aint.

There was one that was half decent, they were asking 11000 Euros, it needed a lot of locks and hinges fixing as they were all broken, the same van in the UK would be about £2000. 

I just dont know why the Spanish take no pride in their cars, motorhomes and caravans etc and make absolutely no attempt to make them presentable when they want to sell them and yet want top dollar.

I will just keep an eye on the local ads, hopefully one will come up there, as long as its on Spanish plates and is owned by a northern European there is a chance that it will be in good nick.

Bombo The Precious Doggie

I have been taking Bombo to the vets the last couple of weeks as he keeps getting blood in his poo,  they think its just a bacterial thing and he is on drugs to try and sort it out. It first started about 6 weeks ago back in the UK and keeps flaring up.

My thoughts keep going to the cancer route although the vet thinks different, I so hope she is right, he is such a special doggie.

All doggies are special but Bombo was always Elaine's boy, he wanted to be with her constantly and she loved him deeply.  

He is now over thirteen years old , I would love to get a few more years out of him, its not just the thought of losing him, its losing another link to the lovely Elaine, It just doesnt bear thinking about.

Get well puppy xxxx
