Well the Easter Bunny didn’t bring us any choccy eggs which is just as well because we wouldn’t have eaten them.
But we did get a rather nice freebie just before the holiday which will come in most useful.
Doing a refurb always involves getting rid of stuff. The firm Partner is working for at the moment ripped out a kitchen. Did anyone want this granite? A breakfast bar, a corner piece and a long piece with a sink cut-out.
‘That will do nicely for your finca won’t it?’ said one colleague. Hey, we don’t even have to put up our hand and ask. Everyone knows we are
tight-arsed into the environment and recycling.
Partner agreed. So instead of being taken to the tip and chucked out, it got put in our truck to take back to Spain.
And as luck would have it, when we arrived, one of our neighbours, his son and his son’s mate were outside. Quick as a flash they were commandeered to unload, the two young lads picking up the huge piece as though it was cotton wool.
‘That’s for jovenes,’ [young people] said our neighbour sagely as he and Partner took the two smaller pieces. Offers of tinnies of beers were refused so we’ll find another way to pay back.
So after ten years of washing up in a plastic bowl on top of a Black and Decker workmate, and throwing the water over the wall, I may get a sink. But hell, there is no rush after all this time. And I need to design and measure up first. That could take a while.
On the road back to Gib we saw this rather neat car flying past us.
‘Aston Martin, DB4’ said Partner. (He likes Aston Martins although not as much as Land Rovers).
Flying too fast to take a photo but we spotted it again in the frontier queue. They must have taken the scenic route after they flew past us.
‘No, I think I’m wrong,’ said Partner sadly. ‘The front end doesn’t look right.’
Any views dear car experts?
Having been to more than enough shops for one day (previous post), we rejected the idea of Morrisons, and I decided I could rustle something up with what little we had in. [tempeh and tofu with a couple of dipping sauces for those of you who are interested – the sauces are probably worth a post at some point]
So we got in, unpacked, and then took an evening walk on Easter Monday with the dog.
Gib wasn’t exactly busy. Just how we like it.
Once through the gates, looking up from Trafalgar Cemetary with the cable car and Trafalgar Heights building on the right of the pic – Trafalgar Heights has a marked resemblance to the leaning tower of Pisa for some strange reason
A lovely ending to a great long weekend.
