The Past

The past is a foreign country: they do things differently there.

There he goes ...

At last the news is out ...

Manchester City have allowed their star footballer Robinho to return to Brazil and his original club Santos. This is only for a 6 month loan and City manager Roberto Mancini insists that the player still has a future with them - we'll see !!

Robinho joined City from Real Madrid and to but it bluntly he has not been worth the money that they spent. During my visits to Spain I gather that Robinho did not do too well in Madrid either ...

Watch this space ..

Woody Woodpecker

Look closer at the tree and you'll see a rare visitor to our garden - a woodpecker !!

They may be common where you live but for us the arrival of this bird caused a stir of excitement.

Only the second visit in about 30 odd years ...

A late " Happy New Year "

A late Happy New Year to those selected few who read my Blog .

The last few weeks has seen us away from the terrible weather and in the sunnier climes of the Costa Blanca. To be honest Spain has also had some bad weather - snow falling in Seville centre for the first time in 56 years but we were OK and that's the main thing - VERY SELFISH ....... !!!

Once the weather is a little better I'll need to get out and about with my camera and see what I can produce for my Blog - in the mean time Blog posts may be thin on the ground - a decorating spell is looming on the horizon .. and then the allotment to prepare.

We shall have to wait a see ..


Penguins - move your cursor and take them for a walk !!

Say it as it is ......

Shoot for the moon, even if you miss, you'll land amongst the stars.

Look around !!!

What is this life, full of care,

We have no time to stand and stare?
