Greetings from sunny Spain. 28C today, and we sat out on the patio having a barbecue until 20.45. We did get the Sahara sand at the beginning of the week, though. It arrived the night after I had spent nearly all day polishing the beast to a state of gleaming perfection for the first time since we bought it. Came out in the morning to find a thick layer of red earth all over everything. The swimming pool looks like a duck pond. Cleaned it all off yesterday only to find this morning that my neighbour had had a massive bonfire late last night and the beast was now covered in ash. Have decided to revert to my previous policy of benevolent neglect.
We are both still suffering from chest infections, so haven’t been doing much. Hoping it has cleared by next week as I have another concert next Saturday, and we have friends coming for lunch on my birthday. (41 again). Apart from that we are spending a lot of time reading and trying to work out what we need to do to get to the point we would like to be at in eighteen months time (which we haven’t really managed to define yet.) Computers are still driving us mad with constant malfunctions. We are sure it is a problem with the server but they are denying all responsibility. We are thinking of fitting a pigeon loft to the caravan when we move on as it may be simpler and more reliable.
All the best, Andy
