Our Little Nest. My Valentine’s Day Post. Oh Boy !

💘 ~Our Little Nest~ 💘

As promised, this is my Valentine’s Day post, from me to only you as no-one else reads this blog anyway.

I have built us a little nest … 

v6

…. to keep the two of us snug and warm.

v7a

v19a

v29a

Hey, cut it out you three.  This is meant to be a romantic post between me and my favourite female reader who is definitely a lady, possibly a lady, probably a lady, no way a lady, other than a lady.  I haven’t quite worked her out yet.

v1

Sweetie, you may use anything in the apartment ………

v21a

v9a

v2

Cats !  Do you mind ?  I want my favourite female reader to go wobbly at the knees over this post !

v1

Honey, you are very welcome to use my internet, as well as watching live English speaking TV and thousands of  the newest HD movies in English with Greek subtitles.  GREEK SUBTITLES !  Heck, I’m English living in Spain !  If you can read Greek that’s a bonus.  I can’t as it’s all Greek to me !  (Δεν μπορώ, όπως είναι όλα τα ελληνικά σε μένα!)

v11

I’ve not yet seen that great musical Zebra The Greek,  or the seafaring blockbuster Up The Greek Without A Paddle.  Have you ?  Maybe we can cuddle up and watch them together, then nothing would be done.  No sleeping, eating, housework, showers or feeding the cats.

v22a

v1

…..There are lots of naughty TV channels.  You know, the ones that can make a man blind !

v23a

Why not Samantha ?

v24a

Yep !

v25a

v4

v10

v12a

SONIC !  

I’ve gone blind now.  I may need a caregiver at this rate.  Now, where IS my laptop ?  

v1

Let’s go to the kitchen my dearest favourite reader.

v26

Would you like a drink ?  Wine ?  Vinegar ?  Olive oil ?  Whatever tickles your fancy.

v27a

v1

I have a large double bed which we can share.

v9a

Why Sonic ?

 v8a

v28a

v20a

v30

Typical !  You three have just ruined my post of love. You cats are like having a cuckoo in the little nest.

v34a

Heck !  Oh well, there is always next year.

v1

v32a

v33a

Oh boy !

Do you … *sigh* … what’s the point.

Heehee.  Happy Valentine’s Day !  🙂 ❤

Update: Snow, Completion & Mad New Neighbour

~Snow~

It snowed overnight in my Spanish mountain village for one day this winter.  All gone in a day.  18degC today.

~Completion~

So you want to buy or sell a house in Spain ?  During the legal process expect a curve ball, something that makes you want to pull your hair out.  This is just what happened to my friends David & Hilda who are living with their 10 cats & dog in temporary accomodation while the sale of their old home and purchase of the new are completed.

16 January 2017

Hola,

An update from us and how we’re trying to cope with the Spanish bureaucracy.

We moved out of our house last Thursday and are now living in ++++.
We’re adjusting to living high up on the wrong side of the valley where we don’t see the sunshine until around 11 am, burning around 20 logs or more daily trying to heat just one room, blocking the draughts from doors and windows and reminding ourselves that we’re having a break…well trying to.
However, you’ll be pleased to know that the cats and the dog are settled which is the main thing and at least it’s not raining. Oh! and we’re getting used to Spanish TV and lots of reading.

We should have gone to complete today ( Monday) but, surprise, surprise, obstacles have been put in our way to prevent this.

Firstly our ++++ went to the Town hall to collect a document which the ++++ should have had available on Thursday ( this confirms that we live outside the national park), but greeted ++++ with “I haven’t done this as I am too busy with other work”.

++++ returned on Friday and we’re still waiting to hear about the certificate, but in the meantime Friday evening we’re advised that we must produce the past 3 years of electricity bills, IBI, and have two witnesses ready to testify that we have lived in our house the past years . Everything is packed away including files in over 100 boxes….so we searched, did find them and took them to ++++’s office this morning questioning who exactly is asking for this? Seems it’s the ++++ who will make a 3% retention of monies unless they’re produced!

…so here we are waiting and our lives are on hold !

We will let you know as and when we have something to celebrate in the hope that something may happen this week

Love from
Us x

~Mad New Neighbour~

Yes, after weeks of no noise at all from our new neighbours she kicked off again …. BIG TIME !  

At 2045 hrs 02 February 2017 all was quiet.  It was dark.  I was sitting quietly on my sofa, the young neighbours below, not a peep ….. then ……

BANG !  BANG !  BANG !

On the WALL right NEXT to me !  So loud and continuous !  Frightened the life out of me !  I could just about make out that she was shouting.  Baby Liam, asleep in the apartment below me, started crying.  It stopped !  Then an even louder continuous metallic banging on her front balcony rail next to mine.

I shot out of the chair and was out onto my front balcony faster than Donald Trump signing an executive order.  I said one thing, “I am going to call the police !” and went back indoors.  I could hear doors slamming, gradually fading, as she worked her way downstairs.  Then quiet.

I picked up my home phone.  IT WAS DEAD !  Ooops, I forgot that the installer of my new internet provider had told me that it would take a week to transfer my phone number from the old IP to the new.  Next Tuesday !

s23

The young family and I decided to keep a record of her outbursts.

s1

Anyway !

Are your tenders hooked in anticipation of my next post ?

Yes, my Valentine’s Day post !

The Wife, Wifi Or The €1200 Toilet Brush

❤ ~Love Song~ ❤

Sometimes I get confused and fabricate typos in my mind.  So before you whack your keyboard on my head to try to heal me, 🎶ommm🎶, here is a beautiful love song from me to you.

Home and Away 1988 TV theme – full version performed by Mark Williams and Karen Boddington

I just love the way the sax comes in at 02:33. 🎷

i1

i3a

Hang on a minute Sonic, I’m drafting a post.

~The €1200 Toilet Brush~

You know what it’s like, you buy something nowadays which you think will last for 2 generations and it falls to bits after a couple of uses, which so happened to be my toilet brush.

i8a

Just a tick Sonic.

I needed to go down the mountains to my bank on the Spanish southern coast and while there I’d buy a new toilet brush as I was fed up with fishing the hedgehog out of the bowl.

i12a

Pipe down cat !

Pedro & Toni (my young neighbours) and I had a lovely day shopping on the coast near Gibraltar.

Okay, what’s the emergency Sonic ?

i11a

i10a

Alright !  ALRIGHT !  There you go Sonic.

i31

i13a

Oh no !  Greasy pawprints all over the laptop screen AGAIN !

i1

And so I returned home with a new toilet brush.  I was so happy !  (note the extra Costa Del Sol dust given away free by the supermarket.  The Spanish are so generous !)

i30

i1

Ooops I forgot !  AND a new smart TV.  I bought it as it had a wife in the box.  NO WIFE,  just wifi !  Sad.  (I must get some reading glasses !).  

i27

i1

Windows 10 refuses to load my old Canon printer CD disc (of Windows XP era) , the printer is useless.  Bloomin’ Windows !  So ….. 

i24

…. I brought home a new printer which also had a wife in the box.  Two wives so far !  I am really a sad person, aren’t I ?

i26

ANDDDD I bought a new camera, as important buttons on my old camera refused to be pressed.

i25

Oh, and lots of bits and pieces.  It’s a man thing !

i23

And that lot came to €1200 (approx same in US$).  All I went for was a new toilet brush !  Oh boy !

i17a

Of course I did.  12 cans of scrumptious fish in gravy.

i28a

i1

So will you marry me and become my wifi ?

The criteria you must meet are >>>>

Be a really, really fast worker.

Vital Statistics:  36Mb – 24Mb – 36Mb

Be able to multitask.  Do many things at once.

Never crash.

Keep me happy in my office chair, sofa and bed 24/7.

Are you up to it ?

New Neighbours

~New Neighbours~

It all started over parking !

n5

Funny,  but what occurred between my neighbours is serious and ongoing.

n1

To set the scene,  the building I live in is in two halves.  One side is a 3 storey single property and my side is divided into three apartments.  The two cats and I own the top apartment.  

Toni …

n2

…. Pedro …

n4

…. and their three children ….

n3

…. live just below me.  And the ground floor apartment is hardly used.

n1

New neighbours from another country in Europe, (whom I will call NewN from now on) moved into the large half next door.  I got on well with the husband, chatting in English.  THEN one lunchtime I heard shouting.  The NewN wife was screaming from her front balcony at Toni in the street to move Pedro’s car parked on the other side of the road of their house perfectly legally (no yellow lines and Pedro had parked his car there for years).

n11

Toni said nothing.  Returned to her apartment,  got the keys and moved the car.  Then Toni got into her car and drove off to pick up her kids from school.  The NewN wife still shouting at the disappearing car.  Other locals and I were shocked at the verbal abuse.

n1

Pedro, upset, parked his car day after day in his usual spot across the road from the NewN home.  The wife or husband never spoke to Pedro.  The wife concentrated on Toni and her children,  even frightening Ariadne by screaming out of the NewN window, “STUPIDO, UNEDUCATED !“, threatening Toni by saying, “You had better be careful when driving at night” and terrifying Liam who woke up crying at 04:30 by almighty banging on the concrete wall from the NewN half of the building.   How awful !

n1

The NewN had local Spanish builders working in their house from day one who are always desperate for money.  The builders are the only local friends that NewN now have, socialising with them in the evenings.  One morning yellow lines were painted on both sides of the road in front of their house.

n12

This, of course, is illegal.  No signs.  No authority from the many different agencies overseeing this area just outside this Spanish village boundary.

n1

Pedro parked his car butted up to the yellow line.

One morning, just before Christmas.  Yes, just before Christmas !  We woke up to find ALL four of Pedro’s car tyres slashed.

n9

n10

n8

n7

n6

I had had enough.  I told one of the Spanish builders that the whole situation was really bad.  He turned bright red, squirmed, but said nothing !

I then rung the NewN doorbell.  The NewN wife came to the door.  I told her that I knew that she had had the tyres slashed as she was the only person to ever be really nasty to this young family. “It wasn’t me.  I don’t care !” slamming the door in my face.

Soon after, the recovery truck arrived.  Luckily for Pedro the insurance paid for that, but not for the replacement tyres.  €240 (about the same in US dollars).  As I said, just before Christmas !  

Spanish locals gathered to watch while the car was being winched onto the truck.  THEN from her front balcony the NewN wife started screaming at Toni’s father !  Everyone was shocked, astounded by the ravings of this banshee, the father said nothing.

Later, the local police could do nothing about the tyres as nobody saw anything, but they did question the NewN wife over the verbal abuse, who said to police, “There is no problem.  We are the best of friends with our neighbours.  We are buddies !“.  Oh boy !

Since that day the NewN have gone totally quiet.  I even tried to say good morning to the NewN husband yesterday, but got the cold shoulder.  So much for “Love thy neighbour as thyself !”.

Pathetic !

n1

I promise not to laugh when the NewN wife wearing only indoor clothes and a black plastic garbage bag on her head (Batman’s nun) is sweeping the street in the pouring rain.

I promise not to be brainwashed listening to the NewN wife playing her 8 note piano … the same scale, up and down, (nothing else !) for hours on end sometimes.

I promise ………. OMG, shoot me someone !

n1

Do you have new neighbours like mine ?

n1

Ralph xox ❤

I know !  Not a lot of fun in this post.  I hummed and haa’ed over whether I should publish it.  In the end I decided that I should as it is life in my Spanish village.  BTW, fun post next time  🙂

Photo Record Of My 70th Birthday Party 15Dec16

WARNING:  This is a very long post.

p47

The day of my 70th started out so well.  From then on it got so much better AFTER taking me 10 minutes to tie my shoe laces.

A car horn outside sounded,  “Beep … Beeep … Beeeeeeeep !”

p47

~ Chauffeur driven madness ~

Wow !  Einar’s Mercedes !  Hilda,  my party organiser,  tried to take the first photograph.  As you can see she is an expert highly professional very willing camerawoman.

(The same blooper happened to Carmen’s husband in this post)

p47

Once the camera started taking photographs,  Einar scooped me up and conveyed me around the village TWICE.  I became quite giddy !

~The Arrival~

Amazingly it was a lovely sunny, but cold afternoon.  The day before and the day after it bucketed it down with rain.  After passing every bar in the village Einar finally pulled up outside Pili Bar where my friends were waiting to greet me.  What a surprise !  Can you see me in this photo ?   Clue: hat !

p40

An even extra surprise was this room.  Thank you so much Hilda, Adrian & Louise for setting it up the evening before.  Can you guess what my favourite colour is ?

p39

p47

~The Speech~

After our traditional chicken & chips meal, Hilda poked me to say a few words 

p38

My speech started off well by me saying,

“I have lived in this village for 14 years and have made some marvellous friends. NOT YOU LOT !”

~The Present~

The “gang” ganged up and gave me a joint present.  Can you guess what my favourite colour wrapping paper is ?

p29

p27

Yes, it was a painting of my two cats by Jim.  

(Do you remember his works in the breakfast cartoon and pictures in my apartment posts ?)

Okay,  I was naughty.  Max whacked me with her wand and sent me home with no tea.  

All say,  “Me next !”.

~On Returning Home~

On arriving home my organiser Hilda hung this wonderful picture for me in the hall.

Nope !  You are staying there behind the glass.

So now there is peace in my apartment until after Christmas.  

“No hell, no hell, no he-ell ….”.  Sing along cats !

Merry Christmas everyone !

Love & hugs.

❤  Samantha, Sonic, China Cat, CooCoo, Binbo and their long suffering human. ❤

I wish you could have come to my party.  Why didn’t you ?

You can’t blame me ‘cos I was kept in the dark about everything to do with the party.

25000 comments

Hello lovely bubblies.  Yes,  between you and me,  we have exceeded 25000 approved comments over this blog’s four and a half years.  25000 ?  Really ?  I have no idea what we talked about as my memory has gone due to …..

* …. my 70th Birthday *

Yes,  today I am 70 years old;  a day when everything goes downhill;  a day when I lose my memory,  forget to zip up my trousers,  walk to the shops in my slippers and on arrival forget what I am there for;  a day when I am known locally in this Spànish village for being the notorious English Unzipped Slipper-Wearing Forgetful Shopper.  (I think it was the unzipped bit which swung it)

My Wonderful Six Week Holiday From Blogging. Ha !

Hi lovely bubblies.  I’m back after 6 weeks … sort of.  Okay, I know you are saying to yourself,

“Oh Nooooo !”

… but a man’s got to do what a man’s got to do … ruin your day !

Heron on a roof top 

My old laptop died so the Spanish technician told me after 5 weeks.  To stay in touch with you I used a psychotic tablet that switched off in the middle of every long comment I pecked at letter by letter.  Your posts loaded slower than snail mail.  The list goes on.  I was like a fish out of water or a heron on a roof top.

So what have I been doing for 5 weeks ?

I tidied up the cupboards.

 My new crazy laptop

I have a new laptop.  It’s a crazy Spanish Windows 10 smartphone on steroids !  It took me days to set up the way I wanted in ENGLISH with a Spanish keyboard.  THEN … I verified that I am who I am with Microsoft and decided to go to bed early and shut down with an update.  Update … a little word, isn’t it ?.  Oh boy, was I in for IT !  One hour of hypnotising English update spinning dots …

o14

 and three hours of Spanish spinning dots ! 

By then I was watching an imaginary spinning skirt instead of dots.

o15

  Finally at 5am,  when, at last, I could see what these updates had done.  The display and Start Menu had changed and most apps are now SPANISH !  Who wants an expensive Frisbee laptop ?  🙂

BUT … I will be strong,  go forth with an English stiff upper lip,  fix the ……..

Oh boy !  Some holiday !  🙂

I just ruined your day, haven’t I ?  🙂

An Ant With A Magnifying Glass

 ~Day 1~

Do you remember in my last post when I tried to give money back to the bank,  had a leak in the kitchen and found hornets’ nests ?  Well,  it’s got a whole lot worse !

A couple of days after publishing the last post and while I was having fun answering your comments,  my laptop produced a million vertical lines,  made mechanical clunking noises,  went black and would not switch off.

w26a

w1

~Day 2 to Day 11~

After a night of “praising” my Dell laptop I sent it away to be fixed locally.  As it didn’t work, the village Spanish computer man either sent it to Dell repair in Madrid,  or to a beach lounger on the Costa,  or to a laptop dancing club.  Who knows !

What to do ?  No laptop !!!  Arghh !!!

d13gif

The cats don’t care.

I do have a Tablet … in a box !

I bought it a year ago and looked at it.  The cable sockets were so tiny that an ant with a magnifying glass couldn’t see them and none of my laptop cables would fit.  Too big !

I switched it on.  My vibrating hands tapped,  swiped,  squeezed and stretched.  Weird things happened.  Nothing did what I wanted.  Almost becoming an expensive frisbee I returned the Tablet to its box.

A year passed,  until now !

w13a

w1

No laptop means no blogging …. an unboxed Tablet is a 1% chance of blogging especially as I have to start from scratch.  Oh boy !

I spent half a day trying to sign in to Gmail.  I knew my password was right … “gspot” … The word corrector had changed my email address first letters of my name to capitals,  not all letters in lower case and I hadn’t noticed !  This Tablet WILL,  by the time this is published,  become a very expensive frisbee !

w1

Via a Google Search I found my blog.  I spent another half day trying to find where to Log In.  A stupid WP monkey hid it in the small “Follow” box at the bottom right of the page by clicking on the three dots.  I did remember my password … “Won’tPress” …

w1

So here I am,  almost at the end of drafting this post.  I really do need to be a 12yo Tablet whizzkid and have nearby a 45 (not inches)-24-36 woman on whom I can tap,  slide,  squeeze and stretch (not necessarily in that order)…. my Tablet resting on her 45 degree slope.

I digress.  The writing on blog pages are either too tiny for an ant with a magnifying glass to read or it zooms in to 3 words on a page.  My vibrating hands !!  Oh boy !

(Insert ant with magnifying image here)

Can’t do it.

On trying to upload an ant with a magnifying glass image to Add New in the Media Library,  WordPress said that I needed their special App for my device.  I followed the instructions like the good boy I am.  Pressed “Install”.  Nothing happened.  In small red writing underneath, it exclaimed with glee  >>>

! Your device does not exist

Silly me !  Of course it doesn’t exist !  It’s a very expensive frisbeeeeeee !

w1

Well,  how did I do ?

At least we can communicate,  can’t we ?  Sort of !

w1

 Ralph xox ❤

All images are from my WP Media Library.

My next post will be in November as this Tablet is making me crazy !!  No change there then  🙂
