Stinkeys still in the UK?
25 August 2018

Hi guys,yes we're still living in the UK despite having our place on the market over a year? We've had some viewings ,and about 6/7 Drive Bys ? ( people turning up and then driving off without coming inside) how rude and inconsiderate especially the couple who asked to change the date 3 times to suit them ?..

we've had 2 silly offers..obviously been watching to many TV program's and expecting us to pay for their renovation plans ? On the 18th August we recieved a firm offer from a very nice lady who's smitten with our home,but the next day her buyer dropped out...so dejected for a couple of days..but onwards and upwards I guess?

on the plus side after 6/7 years I have finally managed to get my trike on the road..but it's in serious need of some carburettor tuning work..so I still can't use it,but did manage to test ride it after the MOT..I wish I could post some pics on here but my old iPad just won't allow me ?

Stinkeys been absent ?
17 March 2018

Hello guys..it's been ages since my last post (December 2015?). I'm not a prolific blogger obviously ? 

Since the last post..we've had trials and tribulations as you do ? My poor health meant lack of ability to physically achieve big jobs done on our small stone house in Spain..but Andy our builder has managed to do some amazing things within our limited budget..and we cannot praise/thank him enough..he's actually saved us money by convincing /pointing out stuff we (well her ladyships ) wanted to do and suggesting alternative ways ?wink

We did manage to get out to Spain a few times in 2016..but it was never long enough for me ? My heart condition was getting worse..and in October 2016 I was told I needed to see the specialist ..he basically told me if I didn't have the OP I had about one year to live ?frown

but I knew this was most likely less because I'd seen a rapid detiriation ,I got a phone call within a few days,but I had to cancel it because my mother had been poorly in hospital and passed away suddenly..10th November..if you've ever had to deal with the paperwork etc of losing a loved one..I can assure it's even more of a pain while your feeling poorly yourself ..thankfully I'm levelheaded and calm..and being the eldest sibling the others left it to meangel..bless em !

Mum had kept so many bills and receipts since the 70s ( why ??) which brang back memories along with all the photos?

only my sisters gave me hassle over some of her small amounts of jewlery..and bless Mum she'd even managed to leave us all a small amount of money each..which surprised my brothers and sistersyes

so on the 13th January (Friday ) I had my heart OP..not something I'd want to do again or recommend ? It's been a SLOW recovery process and the team never tell you enough information /details regarding the process ? But hey ho..

we actually managed to visit out there in Oct 2017. And the difference the weather made to my mobility was staggering to be honest? But unfortunately my wife was poorly for the first 4 days..which kind of put a damper on things ? We did manage to inspect Andys work.Whatsapp is marvellous but nothing better than seeing stuff in real life..

we decided seeing as I've been given a new lease of life,we'd put the house on the market..which we did just after the election 2017 ?  And it's now March 2018.. And we're still living in hope ?

Stinkeys on his way ?
19 December 2015

Hi guys,well we've purchased our renovation project..an hours drive north of Alicante ? We will be totally off grid..slightly off track but only about half a mile from the town..so not far for provisions etc..my son is now on board and raring to get down here to help us..hopefully we can start work in March?..and to think we only came out for a much needed holiday in September ? And now own a potential holiday home for all the family to use once finished ? And I'm sure some will be out to help with the work just to get some sunshine while grafting ..best we stock up on beers..

10 October 2015

Hi guys n gals ( pets too ? )

just thought I'd pop on here in the cyber world to introduce myself ? But iv just literally picked up my new glasses from boots opticians..and woo ! The iPad looks curved ? Had my eye test last week,told me I have early stages of cataracts..nobody told me about that one when I joined the human race ? It's great getting old..but I'm enjoying the adventure and hopefully we get to join you lot ( expats ) out in Spain soon ?..hopefully get a chance to ride out on our bike/ trike with other bikers ?
