We are starting to echo…

Today was the big day, when all of our furniture went. We were up early to dismantle the bed and the wardrobe and office storage soon followed. The kitchen chairs left this afternoon. Dinner was takeaway fish and chips, eaten from a makedo picnic set fashioned from two 64 litre plastic crates for chairs and one 84 litre crate as the table.

The last of the furniture has just gone and now it is time for a well deserved bath, then off to bed in the van.

You may consider this the first night of the rest of our lives.

Bare Naked

I am lagging on the Month in the Country prompts, and lagging badly at that.

Even if I need to crowbar it in. The thing is, I am going to continue to be short of time and space in which to write and so a two-for-one is useful and I hope to do as many of those as I can. Seems like a plan? … Continue readingA Month in France: Nothing is Lost

Ah, the windy highway. The last time we came down here our awning blew open… Thankfully it’s not even close to being that windy today. Phew. Not so good now that the tolls have been removed and there are HGVs to contend with. A bit macho, your Spanish lorry driver.. #livereportingfromtheroad #Spain #autumn2020

Rather a different day today but still warm, with 24 degrees expected by the time that we reach Ribamar. Those Happy Hour beers will be tempting. Shopped this morning before leaving, to find the Christmas Turron had arrived overnight. I confess; we spent an inordinate amount on Turron and chocolate. #livereportingfromtheroad #Spain #autumn2020
