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.

Really , get out more
05 July 2013 @ 10:26

 Packing packing packing, started with the DVD cabinet, that's now 50% blu rays , sorted and boxed 168 films jeez we really need to get out more either that or open a cinema. I presume they have cinemas ? Never noticed one , any way been in doors for last 49 yrs in damp Britain , need to see the sun in retirement you know like a pit pony . The lovely wife keeps talking about satellite TV from the uk , beamed from the sky . I say yes it's possible , i Do watch discovery and nat geo , history channel so it's tempting but so is the draw to the out doors , the village squares and the heart of a community the bar, not for the alcohol but to drink in the atmosphere , to meet new friends . It's our intention to live in Spain not on Spain or in little England . Being youngish for retirement gives you a unique view on things it would be easy to do nothing and drink too much like a life on holiday but how long would you last ? No they way forward is a small place with enough room for veg and close to the coast to go fishing - room to grow somewhere to go and somewhere to relax then down the road o swap stories in the village , utopia ? I hope so. The secret I believe is to learn better Spanish the language opens doors. 

All a bit deep today , but with the shelves not only bare but packed i feel rather reflective , pre jump nerves ? the move will be sad as well as the start , selling on our family root our harbour , is not easy as I've said I don't like change Deirdre . After 10 yrs delivering change in the business I have found the best way is to grasp it and work with it not try to change the change .
