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 ?

Old age is certainly not for cissies ( I think Bette Davies said that) but what's the alternative? Enjoy what you can, when you can, that's my motto! Good luck.

Cissies..who said that ? I'm all for living life hence buying a small( very ) renovation project which was the last thing I wanted seeing as I'm not in great health..roll on the Spanish sunshine ..we're both looking forward to giving it a go which is the good thing..Maria doesn't mind DIY..she tends to do the high stuff up ladders while I sit on the bottom rung nowadays ..thankfully not much of that on this project ( il regret saying that ?) my son and son in law..are in the building trade and I'm sure the promise of free holidays will lure them into our web of things to do ?
In fact knowing my son he will try to take over has project manager..My Ex calls him The Guvnor..

We've made an offer on the house ( shed )..waiting to hear,but it's fiesta time so we're in no hurry..ooh I'm such a liar..we are both gagging to load up the car /van with tools etc to get started..sod Xmas I'd rather be mixing some muck and rendering walls..And thanks GB45 for my first comment/reply

STINKY! I love your blog. Get 'her indoors' to get loading your life up, and get yourselves over here in the sunshine, you'll both feel so much better. Whereabouts is your 'shed' in the Med ?

My buddy text me ( nobody rings anymore ?) yesterday to say ..one of the buyers in the chain has pulled out ( on the day of signing ) EEK !
So leaving him with a house full of bagged n tagged boxes,garage full of trike parts,3 cats waiting for new owners,removal company on it's way,a car in Alicante waiting to be collected,empty apartment in Spain ,ferry booked..oh poo.poo !
