Living with the Presidente.

A tongue in cheek account of living with the Presidente, OR how to survive and extended 'family' of 183.

El Presidente and Moi and El Presidente's brother have returned from wet UK to wet Spain.

It is El Presidente's brother's 1st visit to us here ( we will call him 'M' from here-on! )

Yesterday we all went on a trip to Xatavia ( or something like that !! ) and guess what??????????'It rained ! ! !

Also the people who organised the trip had obviously failed to recognise a 'red' day and everything was closed. We couldn't visit the museum because it was closing within half an hour and the train which was not a train but a pink and white BUS, was to leave half an hour after its designated time which meant we would miss the coach home!! AND it poured down and poured down.

El Presidente was fed up, Moi was fed up and M was fed up and we were all WET, WET, WET. Although I did manage to buy 6 stunning cakes for 5.70€ which I kept dry..................not bad, 300 Kilometres and all day to purchase 6 blooming cakes !

The gardener has identified another dead palm which El Presidente will have to organise the removal of. We cannot have new ones, similar or different, planted for 6 months or so because the soil needs time to recover and there is nothing you can add to shorten this procedure.

Karen, sorry your day out was spoiled by rain. It was fine here, we strolled along Torrevieja seafront, sat with coffees then watched the waves & sun worshippers as we ate outside at Playa del Cura.
