The view from the back

My blog is about our move to Spain, to be exact it's about the intergration of a techno junkie and his lovely wife of 30 yrs into 18th century Spain.

Now we see you .....

 Well that was a lovely afternoon with the mum in law , a fine roast dinner ( of which I have had a plenty over the years ) because " you don't know if you'll be able to have one in Spain ! " All that and the sun was out , by uk standards it was anyway. After lunch we lazed in the garden listening to the neighbours audition for Britains got no talent whilst they cooked somthing with unleaded in the garden. May be the Spanish have got it right and we would have been better off asleep. 

After a while the the game was on I was jostled in to the kitchen and handed The lap top, there was no escaping. I said smartly who do you know on Skype, we need to try it , we're here ? My lovely wife said not that easy I brought the pad ill be in the lounge , I was cornered 

So after the down load we addressed the profile and the dreaded password, this is the hitch this will be the 4th or 5th password so its a good job the phone calls will be free  ! But after a slow start we soon had full satellite comms with the lounge in full colour it reminded me of the aliens in the Argos Christmas ad who could even shop from the top of a lamp post as it worked in the garden up the stairs even in the loo ?? 

Whch got me to thinking do we need a new piece of etiquette to cover video calls ? I mean it brings a WHOLE new meaning to "you'll have to take me as you find me " LOL 

But you have to love her as she seems to have got it ! I'm sure we can look forward to lots of "can you see me calls " in the future.

Skype is great for keeping in touch why we don't use it all the time in the U K I'll never know! I've seen more of my grandson (via Skype) in the last month that I did when we lived a couple of miles apart!
The only thing is you have to remember to keep the sound turned on the laptop or iPad.😳
