above and below our peach tree and fig tree, look how many peaches, last year they were huge and soft and juicy, these seem to have now reached as big as they are going to get, but i think its because there as so many all so close together there...

and the figs are no where near ready yet... my very favorite fruit.....

and above and below a couple of the garden ornaments Franco has made.....


well i am lost today, i left my notes with my work stuff in the Estanco.... oh heck all that scribble and nonsensical stuff, hope no one reads it....

there was a concert right at the end of the beach road at the Malaga end on Friday evening when i was leaving work, a huge stage set up and orange railings for people to walk between instead of on the road... you know where i am going with this eh? police everywhere cars all over the place and complete disorder!

i was letting go of some road rage at a friends house yesterday afternoon and they lent me book to read.... not sure of the connection yet will let you know when i have finished reading 'The Lone Brit on 13' A prisoner's hell in Spain's toughest jail, (alhaurín de la torre)...

i cant help it... i am a Subaru Impreza driver in another motor... surrounded by people who were not taught how to use indicators, road positioning or clutch control, among other important road and safety issues.... ok ok i am sorry, i will give it a break for a few more weeks again, i am getting on my own nerves with all this road talk! instead i should mention now on my way home the sun has already passed down over the mountain range beyond alhuarín el grande and its an eerie light with the fragrant smells of the eucalyptus and thyme breezing in through the open car windows, beautiful....

and the parking in town, the blue parking bays are on both sides of the road leading up to the cross round about, lots of meters Franco says its cheap parking, but next week i will check it out and post the prices....

back to Bajondillo Estanco tomorrow, wonder how the parking is down there now, up at Playmar this week i had to do lots of extra driving some morning to find a space, especially the first three mornings when the nintendo wii stand was on the beach, they had to same shows on here in spain as everywhere in england, huge tents with lots of wii machines and people trying out the moves... but the trucks took up lots of spaces....

i have been using my ds lite this week at work... well while i am just standing there and no one is about i might as well do my spanish word coach, i am up to seventh grade now!?!

Franco took Pippa down to the vets during the week for a nail clipping, free of charge, and outside he gave her a wash in the pet wash there... just like a car wash, euro in the machine and then water soap and a hair dryer! she loved it!

one of the customers is off to china on Sunday, she is dutch and going to be wearing one of our Lambert and Butler orange sun hats to the games! there will be a huge group of dutch all wearing orange hats so keep a look out!!!!

few more people down on the coast this week at last! although of course mainly Spanish as this is their holiday month, on the news one morning this week a guy was saying benidorm is quiet this summer, well lots of people here this year instead of there... so its not that they're not in Spain, just trying out a new location!

nine weeks of the promo done, eleven to go, i think now i will be able to make it, not sure how though when i am standing there its a different matter, moving from one painful leg to another and back again, struggling with this mushy feeling i have in my legs from the knees down, and taking lots of pain killers... Franco found another new 'thing' to help people with Fibromyalgia, but i will have to wait till this job is done with to try it out, and only then will i let you know if it works! you know i will have to try it, as i have every other 'thing' in what will be 20 years next may that i have had this in my life, or it has had me in its!

What is the real 'I'?
It is what you are,
not what others make of you.
