Unexpectedly. In Spain. En España.
No, not a frontier problem but a puppy delay.
For those of you who don´t back read the comments, which is silly as I have some rather intelligent commenters who always have something pertinent, and sometimes impertinent, to say.
So the puppy arrived nearly four weeks ago, via a woman who rescued him from a rubbish bin when he was a few days old. He´s started his jabs but they won´t be complete until next month when he will also get chipped.
So I won´t have access to my computer until November and no I am not faffing around to try and blog from my ´phone. Bad enough writing comments from it and roaming is EXPENSIVE.
Pippa has graciously agreed to allow excerpts from Snowy´s Diary on his blog, so those of you who like soppy dog pix, large dog and tiny puppy pix, and consider anthropomorphism perfectly natural will be able to read more detail over there when I am back on line.
I will also publish a post on here about bastards who dump puppies, dogs, cats and other animals in rubbish bins, on the side of roads, on motorways or whereever.
Those of you who think rescued unwanted dogs are indeed life´s rubbish may not want to read this future post.
Being stuck in Spain, and not very mobile limits the options. Reading is the first choice of entertainment as it doesn´t require ankle use.
Except, I´ve gone through the unread books that I´d brought with me and am now re-reading from my vast library. If four bookshelves can be called vast.
Reviews to follow will include Tolkien, Rowling, various crime books, some soppy trash and a few classics from above vast library.
And a few gardening books as I have managed to plant/sow beetroot, lettuce, onion sets/seeds, carrots, tomatoes and aubergine. Courtesy of my ever-generous neighbours I have peppers and chillies too.
Thanks to everyone for your good wishes regarding my ankle and for all the advice and info. Having a rescued puppy thrown out to die puts a sprained ankle into perspective somewhat. For the dog/animal people out there he´s a Podenco albino with the most beautiful green eyes.
Apols for any spelling errors as this is being typed from a cafe so no time for endless proofing.
I´ll try and log on once a week and get round to visiting some blogs but I won´t be able to back track through posts. Sorry about that.
