The white patio

Tuesday, October 24th, 2017

The bidet has started leaking, it decided to start leaking on Sunday which meant we could do nothing about it. I kind of sorted it, and today after work we went to get new taps. The man in the shop had never seen bidet tapes so old, and didn’t have replacements. Next stop is see what the plumber says, the plumber that lives round the corner.
Friday night we went to Pepes but like last week Pepes across the road and like last week we went for a bit of a walk first.
Saturday Moira came to help me work in the morning so I could get it done quicker. Then in the afternoon I worked for a couple of hours. We stayed in and had curry.
Sunday a part from the bidet starting to leak, we had to get up early as Moira had BnB guests, they left at 8.30, we had something to eat, looked at each other and said, now what do we do? We went for a short walk to the white chapel on the hill that Moira had never walked too then home to try and do something about the bidet, bit of gardening, reading and peanut butter making.
This week I have been pruning and pruning as Jesus has got a new client and we want to make a good impression. Going well so far.

We have just had a visit from Cerrie and Sonny, now Pepe is back in the bar across the road we will probably see more of them.
Last week was a bit manic what with fiestas and having Fiona and Malcom staying. The weather was perfect, the best they have had while out here. Warm enough to eat most nights on the balcony.
This weekend was a bit quieter, no guests paying or not paying. As Pepe is now in the bar across the road we went to meet Cerrie and Sonny there, we went for a bit of a walk first as we like the walk to the tortoise bar.
Saturday I got to go to the market for the first time for ages. We sorted out Moira’s mobile, bought some peanuts and a new pair of walking trainers for me. I worked in the afternoon, and we stayed in that night after meeting Inger in the bar for a couple before dinner.
Sundaywas the tour de art in Castello de Empuries which we tend to go to every year. There is always a new building to see into and this year wasn’t a disappointment, Inger came with us as she knew one of the artists.

Irena and Ingers road trip

I wouldn’t be writing this, I should be on strike, well actually not strike, I should be having a pause, which is fair enough, to highlight the guardian civil violence on Sunday during the Catalan referendum for Catalans. That was Sunday, we went to vote but even though we pay taxes in Catalunia we were not allowed to give our opinion, Irena had a go at the Mayeres with the support of Inger, then we went to eat in Carmens. Later on I popped back to see what was going on but everything was closed and voting stopped as the Catalan Police had heard that the Guardia civil were on there way. As expected the Yes vote won.
Friday night we went to Pepes as Diane and Ian where here for 2 weeks, Irena and Inger come along as well for Pepes chicken curry, but Pepe had gone to funeral and there was no curry on the menu.
Saturday I worked all day it’s handy and somewhat annoying that there isn’t any where on the way home, to spend what I earn while working on Saturday, saves money I suppose.
That leaves today a general pause, so I worked a little so as not to work all day Saturday, also giving me time to do something in our garden.
