A cherry moon

Tuesday, April 26th, 2016

What a strange start to the week. The light in the bedroom we talk 4 light bulbs at once, and today my mobile decided to get a virus and now does nothing except show me a sad face on a blue background.
The weekend went well though, starting with Friday, as usual we went up to Pepes, this time to meet Sue and Bob. Carrie and Sonny where there, and also Jackie and the other Bob. They had had a nightmare renter in there house as where at Pepes for a stiff Brandy or 2. Pepes is Pepes, it’s where we go Friday’s and as always we had a happy, chatty night.
Saturday I worked pretty much all day which Moira had to drop me of, go and do the shopping then come and get me later. Moira had organized to go round to Irenas for a glass of wine at 7, se had bought some cheese, bread and Doritos. What was supposed to be one drink need up with us getting home at 10.30 the worse for wear for Irenas over generosity with her wine.
Sunday was windy, very windy, we went to Jonquera shopping center even though it wasn’t raining via a garden center as I needed to get compost and basil seeds. Moira bought some shoes, I tried an aftershave that I thought I liked but was wrong Moira thought it smelt of rotten oranges. We came home then did the tour de Gariiguella, as usual via Pepes for a refreshment.
This afternoon we went to Figueres, to ask how my broken pump was, not yet fixed, do something about the light in the bedroom, 4 new light bulbs and starters bought, and to see if someone could get rid of the virus on the phone, it seems it’s possible. Will take the phone to Figueres sooner or later to get sorted.

Moira is home she got back Thursday the day before Jonathan and his dad arrived. Friday night we went to Pepes with our guests. Cerrie, Sonny and a couple that are here once in a while they have had there house for over 20 years in Garriguella aparantly it’s changed quite a lot.
Saturday while Moira worked Jonathan, Clive (Jonathans dad) and I went to the botanical gardens in Blane’s and then Cap de Cruz as Jonathan loves it there and he loves to drive which is handy. Sunday they went to France while Moira and I caught up with ourselves. Monday they went to Girona but came back to take us out to eat in Roses.

Moira is still in China. It’s a big house to keep tidy and do a full time job.
The weekend went well, Friday night I met up with Cerrie and her mum and dad also Irena and Inger all at Pepes bar. Had a lovely night, must remember that I owe Irena 10 euros. Saturday I wasn’t working, so I went to the market, did a bit of shopping took my time then home. After eating something I attacked the boiler that was being thrown out of Alfred’s house and started to turn it into a little stove. It’s getting there still needs a lot of work though to stop it looking like a bridge job made up of of bits of crap that I have found in our garage.
That evening I got a message from Inger, she was having dinner at Chez Luisette, I went along for a drink and a chat as I had eastern so much while making falafels, peanut butter then a satay sauce that I wasn’t hungry, she hadn’t been invited into Mark and Wendy’s either.
Sunday I was supposed to be meeting up with Tina’s brother to give him the keys to their flat, good excuse to not go anywhere, so I did some gardening in my own garden, for most of the day. Met up with Tina’s brother Tony, had a drink came home, did a bit more gardening then watched tele, after eating what I had meant to eat Saturday night.

No me dejes perder la maravilla

Moira has gone again, last Wednesday she went to Scotland to sell jewel left and see family and friends, I picked her up from the train station on day midday and this morning she went of to China, it’s all go in this household, the cats are well confused, Sparrow wouldn’t leave her alone yesterday afternoon he was quite vocal about how annoyed he was that she had gone away.
As far I a was concerned, the weekend went quite smoothly after I had planted 5 massive vines for one of Jesus’s clients, I got home here at 7.00. Cracked open a beer and let the weekend begin by falling asleep on the sofa almost immediately after I had eaten something.
Saturday I worked most of the day in the rain and for the evening, there was a football match between Barcalona and Madrid on the tele in the bar, I go for the atmosphere not the football sadly never of the 2 were that inspiring, I had a good night, Barcelona didn’t.
Sunday Irena and I went to Port de la selva for the annual asparagus fair, we had a wander, a drink and some asparagus croquettes then home for some wine in the garden, the excuse was she needed to borrow our sanding machine.
After Irena had gone I did the tour de Garriguella passing by Pepes for a refreshment. Then home for the usual ukulele practice.
