Well, it looks as if our time on the open road is drawing to close until Spring. We found a two bedroom villa today with room for the caravan, and made an offer for a six month rental which has been accepted, so we are hoping to move in next Monday. The furniture is a bit tatty, but it ticks nearly all of the boxes except that it doesn’t have internet, which is almost impossible to find on short-let properties. It is on the outskirts of the town of Jalon (or Xalo), depending on which version of Spanish you speak, has a garden about the size of the one we had in Ferring, orange lemon and persimmon trees in the garden and sunshine from every side. There is a swimming pool and an outside kitchen, and it even has a bath! It is about an hour from Alicante airport, so we can easily pick visitors up from there. Jalon is a pleasant little town with oranges and almonds growing all around it, and apparently the blossom in February is spectacular. Hope we will see some of you soon.
The only current flies in our ointment are that I still seem to be completely deaf in one ear and Ann’s knee is giving her a lot of gyp. Andy
