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...
