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.

To the aid of St Luke
03 June 2013 @ 22:24

 We have for weeks now been running down hundreds of totally essential items that you have to have and then put away safe it was quite a pile . The lovely wife was once more marched at gun point ( staple not revolver ) into the loft whilst I went for a drive around in the sun. Sounds marvellous , your wondering of my destination , well it was the tip , to be fair it was the tip 3 times followed by another trip to the charity shop , our chose cause St Luke's hospice nice people and a worthy cause. Do you know I feel right at home in their chesterfield shop we seem to share the same taste in design and art , music , literature and hobbies. Strange really. 

My lovely wife on one of my return trips commented on how hot it was in the loft , well in to the 30's I said it was nice out as well and it was good that she could take the heat so well as its warm in Spain you know. That remined me that I had planned to have the car serviced and the aircon regased before we drive down , must call them. 

The lovely wife has done it , it's clear , the loft is fit to sub let or convert , I bet there's  some great views out the back if only we'd done that rather then fill it up with life's essentials. You know I'm just wondering as most Spanish homes don't have lofts what do they do with all of life's essentials ? Basements ? Or do they ignore the toys and get out and live life and enjoy friends new and old ? 

With that in mind today I bought a camera and some extras , I know what your thinking but I'm not rerunning that part of the model plan I've signed up for a diploma in photography course , its on line and I start at the end of July so what an excuse to get out and explore my new surroundings. I hope the first lesson is still life against a white cloth as after all the ebay shots that should be a doodle.
