Wednesday

phew its hot, strange how we all want the cool days, and fluffy sweaters and jeans back on now, but then, when its cold... now i know its never as cold here as back in england and we never have snow, except if we go higher up and further inland, but when its cold for us its cold ok! we get used to this heat, well almost so when its cold here we feel freezing! even if that means its about 10 degrees C! anyway sorry, off on one again eh!

yesterday... friends and i went down to the coast to sort out something for me and something for them! i picked them up at 7am! thats 7am and we were down in fuengirola and parked by 745, we went along to one of the police stations for them to hand in forms to get their NIE numbers, like social security number, needed for everything here! at 820, still in line... i left them to it to go to the bank, (back near the car park) for a certificate to prove i had a bank account! waited, bank opened went in, one guy there deals with us foreigners i was in there about half hour, then i had to go back past car park, past police station where friends were still waiting! to lawyers office further on, to hand in certificate! and back to police stations, we went for coffee then about half hour later their number came up, handed in papers and left! about 11am! have to collect in 4 to 6 weeks.

little shopping here and there and then home by about 2pm, yup one fun day, but we got lots done so that was good! oh forgot, we had a little bite to eat, a spanish thing of bread, olive oil, garlic and tomato, bit crispy and very tasty... well mate went for salt we merrily sprinkled away then found it was a sugar replacement thing! ugh! so then we added the salt... what a mix up, sure she was getting me back for the time ages ago when i put a spoonful of salt in her coffee instead of sugar, it was at her house and the two containers were identical! ugh!

am still suffering from my fall and then when i met up with mate today, she had fallen down! copy cat, maybe i'll win the lotteria this week and then she will too! all i can say is thank goodness we dont drink! how bad would we be then! the streets are just so slippy and greasy, any shoes you wear might as well be skates!

did a little vid while having a coffee at our famous roundabout this morning, blurry and old looking as usual, the vid i mean, or is it me! just kidding... life begins at 40 eh? well shame the body deteriorates from then on too!

some of you my friends whose blogs i read too, you all sound so worldly wise and grown up... am i the clown? mind you i dont have to paint on my smile... its always real...

Those who bring sunshine to the lives of others, can not hide it from themselves...

strange how this little line came up next in my book, hope i bring a little sunshine to you all.

Thanks for making me smile Marian, and you're not a clown, you're a bubbly, spontaneous, fun person! I am often much too serious, so it's good to LOL when I read your refreshing, spontaneous whirlwind blog!

Thank you FMN... its just sometimes when i read your blogs i feel... i dont know, i want to comment more but am lost for words! yes me! i feel i want to say something, but not sure what or how to put my thoughts into words sometimes... weird because usually my mouth runs away without even a thought going through my head!

Don't worry Marian. I understand exactly what you mean. My blog has taken a peculiar turn, but it's as if I've pulled the stop out and many things I'd held inside are seeping (or rushing) out. I don't know where it's going to take me, and I'm not even sure it's the right thing to do...I really appreciate your visits and I certainly don't mind if you don't comment! Besides, what CAN one say to a person who has saintly dreams but in reality is just a little off the wall? But then, aren't we all a little off the wall, I say? I mean we all have our experiences, good and bad, in life. And we all would like to make a little sense of it, so we follow our paths, wherever they lead. And our paths cross with other people's paths every now and then. Isn't it incredible? It's just so good to have friends all over the world, each of whom give the other something they need. So you are the joy bringer, I'm just a nut case, but I don't mean any harm...and maybe something good will come out of me and you and DD and Honora, and whoever else wants to share in our 'whatever'.

thank you again FMN.. you have made me smile and cry and laugh with that last comment! and if your a nut then so am i and the rest of them, and after all nuts are good things!

Honora says she's a blonde coconut. That must make me a plump macadamia nut. What kind of nut are you? :-)

Marian said...

well i'm not sure if i'm a pecan or a pistachio! either way i'm glad to be in the nut club!
