Going Offline

This slideshow requires JavaScript.


OnΒ  Saturday 22nd June 2013 I am going offline for about 2 weeks. The builders will have finished the rear rooms and balcony of my apartment so on Sunday I will be moving everything out of the salon and matrimonial bedroom (dream on Ralph) to the rear rooms with the help of Toni & Pedro and Hilda after a major clean up.

The antenna for the internet is on the wall of the front balcony. I do not want to leave my modem and router in a room where walls are coming down and electrics are being channelled into the cement and brick walls. I would hate to have complaints from my blogging friends that dust is coming out of their computers while visiting my blog. So all the electronics are being removed from my old Blog Control Centre while a new one is being built.

All the Blogs I Follow will be turned off. A million emails on my return would be most welcome but catastrophic to my brain. You are welcome to camp, visit, have a party or just relax in my blog while I am away.


"Top Searches" ???

So. Goodbye on Saturday.Β  I will miss you all and will probably have blogging withdrawal symptoms πŸ˜₯

  1. Good luck with all that, Ralph. Rather you than me. See you on the other side, as it were, πŸ™‚


    • Thank you so much Sylvia. I am looking forward to seeing you on the other side. Have fun. Ralph xox πŸ˜€


  2. You are so right, I dont want dust through the computer, otherwise you can come and visit me to vacuum it all up. So better shut it down, even though we will miss you Ralph. Wishing you all the best with living in the bedroom with the 2 cats… πŸ™‚ Take it easy!
    With love Ute oxo (It gives you time to dream about your hot woman for the matrimonial bed and sunbathing on the balcony.) Enjoy! πŸ™‚


    • πŸ˜† You are so funny !! I am very considerate not to spray dust all over your house ……. shame as I like hovering πŸ˜‰ I will miss you too, very much Ute πŸ˜₯ BUT I can only dream of my future hot woman …. which may one day become a reality πŸ˜‰ Love and hugs. Ralph xox πŸ˜€


    • Thanks Beth. I must take time out on my return to have a really good look at your blog. Enjoy your break from me !! Ralph xox πŸ˜€


  3. What needs to be done, needs to be done, and there is no use fretting about it. I will miss you, unless, you have a library near that you can log into your blog from there?


    • “What a man’s got to do, a man’s got to do !” I haven’t a clue what that means but it sounds good. There is an internet cafe a few miles away Linda, but it’s a bit like giving up smoking for a couple of weeks and taking a quick puff half way through. So I think I will just have to suffer the withdrawal and anyway I have so much to do in this build and buying lights, fans, beds, furniture, linen etc. Everything really. Have a great fortnight without me. Ralph xox πŸ˜€


      • You make the best of your time away and remember we’ll all miss you!


  4. Awww, but remember all the wonderful things you did during your last voluntary sabbatical? We’ll miss you, but don’t be sad. xoxo


    • That is really a sweet thing to say Rene and it does bring back memories. Thank you and I will miss you too. Big hug. Ralph xox πŸ˜€


  5. Ralph, you have such pretty views! Good luck with all the renovating. It’s a good time to take a break anyhow. The blogs have been kind of slow lately. Enjoy the sunshine! – Amy xo


    • Thank you so much Amy. The views, friends and great neighbours swayed my decision to buy and stay here. I could have gone anywhere in the world but why move when one has those three gemstones. The renovating is going well, on time and on budget. The solar panel was fixed to the roof today and will be connected up tomorrow. Have a busier time on your blog my friend. Ralph xox πŸ˜€


    • For heavens sake Tracy I am always turned on when you comment πŸ˜‰ Ralph xox πŸ˜€


  6. Love the tiles and the solar panel. It will be exciting to welcome you back in a few weeks and to see the progress on the renovations.


    • Hi Gallivanta. The tiles are nice aren’t they? The hot water solar system is now switched ON … yippee !! …. and within a half an hour I can feel the temperature difference between the hot and the cold ….not much but a difference !! See you soon. Ralph xox πŸ˜€


  7. you shall be missed so hurry back as we will be waiting anxiously for updates. Love and hugs (((xx)))~Len

    • I will possibly have quite a slideshow on my return. I hope you are recovering well and hopping about like a march hare. I hope you have good news for me in a couple of weeks Len. Big hug. Ralph xox πŸ˜€


      • Oh Ralph I am definitely not hopping but gliding quite well with the walker LOL. I too hope I can give good report in a week or two. Looking forward to seeing the slideshow. Love and hugs (((xx)))


  8. O Ralph, O Ralph – How I will miss thee.
    I shall keep you in my blog dreams πŸ˜‰

    Enjoy your two weeks offline.
    I’m sure you will have some good offline adventures for us upon your return.
    “See” you when you get back.

    Saludos y Abrazos xo


    • Oh RoSy, I thee will miss most abundantly and we may meet in our dreams πŸ˜€
      I do hope to have some adventures for you on my return my friend. Mucho Saludos y Abrazos. Ralph xox πŸ˜€


  9. Take care and we will be missing you during the entire 2 weeks…Cheers~ πŸ˜€


  10. Don’t go far–I want to see the home all finished! Love the tiles–and the cats.


    • Oh, I am staying where I am Alice, just changing rooms. I love them as well. Thank you. Ralph xox πŸ˜€


  11. Hey Ralph! I’m wishing you the best two weeks EVER — EVER!!!
    Your home looks like it is just going to be fabulous!
    Some times it feels good to go off the grid — or, is that just how I feel. (Sometimes, I’m happy when I leave my house and I forget my cell phone)
    Can’t wait to see what you’ll be posting after two weeks of missing all of us πŸ™‚ PEACE-


    • Hi Wambui.:D I agree. Maybe a couple of weeks off will do me good. I hope I don’t forget how to blog on my return !! I am sure with my track record my next post will be a good one for you. I have 2 weeks to think about it. Big hug. Ralph xox πŸ˜€


  12. Good decision, couple of weeks off the grid will do you no end of good … and you can start looking for that hot woman in a flash!

    Take Care,


  13. Take care my friend, will miss you. Good you are trying to relax a little with all the chaos dust and dirt flying!! But you will have a nearly new place out of it all. Till we meet up again. Felion


    • Till we meet again Felion πŸ˜€ Ralph



  14. So Ralph goodbye than, but you know that time goes faster as you think so you will be back in a hurry πŸ™‚ I adore your balcony with all those lovely tiles, so beautiful !


  15. Hi MFR, You will have the best pent house view in the Spanish world. Your balcony is amazing! Lots of love to you as we all (I) will miss you! Have fun dreaming. Look for friend bombarding you soon. Certain “persons” will get their send off later this week, πŸ™‚ xox
