Guess the frank zappa song

Tuesday, March 28th, 2017

Tuesday again, music is downloaded onto the iPod just in time for Sunday which was Moira’s birthday party along with Ian who came along with Dolors and their 2 girls. Irea and Inger also came along to entertain Ian, and Cerrie and Sonny, cerrie to chat to Dolors and Sonny to play with the girls. The weather was perfect the curries made by Moira , delicious and the company more then very agreeable. Every one went just as Maria arrived which meant we had to open another bottle of wine
Friday night was as usual Pepes while it rained outside.
Saturday i worked pretty much all day, then feel asleep I front of the tele in the evening.
And Sunday was the party.

It was Moira’s birthday yesterday, and to celebrate i took her to the new marichiero in Roses, good pizzas but not the same atmosphere a the original, you don’t come away smelling of pizza for one.
The weekend went as usual starting at Pepeswith Cerrie and Sonny.
Saturday i started the day by working, got home, got changed then we walked to ust by the petrol station on the road to figueres as it was the day of the carpinter and Sonias husband Max is a carpenter and always hold an afternoon party which for them goes on into the night. We had to walk home so we left while it was still light. That night, after having a siesta we stayed in.
Sunday was a lovely day, we filled the backpack with beer and some water and went to Roses to walk along to Almadrava beach, when we eventually got there the beers were opened and enjoyed while we looked at the sea. Priceless.
The man came round to fix the chimney on Tuesday it only took him a couple of hours and the chimney sweep is coming tomorrow so we will have a fire place as good as new, ready for next year hopefully, we have kind of got used to sitting with a hot water bottle on our lap.

Well we have internet again, and thanks the cables being stolen the phone company has had too put up new and better cables which we have now have a grand 4 mb of internet speed, as opposed to 2.5mb.
I cant rightly remember what i did the week i couldn’t write the blog last weekend, i can remember last weekend though, we went to London. It was Sarah’s birthday on Saturday, we flew Saturday morning which meant we could go to Pepes on Friday with Inger and her son, having been to the Italian in Perelada on thursday with Irena, Mick, Tracy, Cerrie, Pepe and Sonny.
After Sarah’s party, where we had a Lovell time, a bit awkward at first as we didn’t no any body a part from imidiat family. We have been away for 10 years. Until Sarah’s sister introduced us to Sarah’s neighbour who comes from Spain, excuse to speak spanish. We left about 12ish and went to meet Dan and Paolo in a bar near theirs which pretty much closed as we arrived.
Sunday was a pub lunch day with Dan, Paolo and Graham as every one else had called of due to massive hang overs from the night before.
Monday i came home, a long day traveling carrying yeast flakes so as i can try and make vegan cheese.
Today the chimney sweep came round but couldn’t sweep anything as the the fire place had disconnected itself from the flue, luckily it’s not cold at the moment. It explains why the fire place wasn’t working very well and the upstairs bathroom was smelling of smoke
Hopefully it will be fixed tomorrow.
