Sandfly swarm

The live singer in Saltash on New Years Eve was enjoyable even tho’ the mixing desk somewhat overly heavied on the decibels from the speakers. Frankly, her voice was very good and if he hadn’t had the backing up so loud she probably wouldn’t’ve needed a mic. The DJ who was on during her breaks was even more heavy handed on the decibels  – when will these folk realise that music does not need to be that LOUD in a small enclosed environment.

Okay that was the last rant for 2018.

New Year’s Day saw R and I walking at Seaton (Cornwall) sea front. I felt right at home steering R0X down a narrow, twisty windy to the beach and just after we’d parked illegally on double yellows the sun chose to come out to play. The warmth that came with the sun’s appearance must’ve convinced the sandflies that spring had arrived as the damn things swarmed everywhere. LWD was covered, R got one in her eye and I tried desperately to breathe through my blocked nose (I’m now into week 5 of the cold and cough from hell) to avoid swallowing a mouthful. Apart from that we had a great walk and lunch; R did impressively well on her new knee especially as she’d spent a fair bit of the previous evening dancing.

Seaton (Cornwall) January 1st 2019

So an auspicious start to the New Year for me and only six weeks to the start of my next trip … France, Spain, Portugal, Spain, France, Italy, France, Germany and Denmark; I figure in the event of a No Deal Brexit they’ve got to find me before they can deport me!

Happy New Year dear regular readers! (I think there may be more than one of you) I hope 2019 will see you and yours happy and healthy throughout.

  1. Hi ,seems like you’ve had a colorfull new year.
    Claus and I were in the car in Germany on new years eve. The car had a breakdown on the way to Spain. We had to wait there for the mecanik for four nights because of the holidays.
    Now we are near the Spanish border.
    Claus will be staying here for a couple of months, an I will be on a plane back to DK in ten days or so, because I promised my daughter to help her taking care of her youngest one ,so she can see to her new job.
    I’m very much looking forward to seeing you in DK.

    1. What bad luck at the start of your journey. Where are you going to in Spain – hope it’s lovely and sunny and warm; damp and cold here but only six weeks til I start my trip. I’d go now if it weren’t for necessary dental treatment and the dreaded diabetes appointment… Enjoy Spain xx

  2. Great to hear you off again M. Perhaps see you in Fr/Sp as I hope to be over via Dover in nxt couple of weeks. May I wish you, Dais & Roxy all good things for 2019.😊😊👍👍👋👋

    1. Thanks Steve, and my good wishes to you and Tanya. I wish I could be the other side sooner but I have dental and diabetes appointments to keep. I’ll keep an eye out for where you are on
      my way down! Stay safe and well xx
