The good ship WordPress churns out a lot of advice. Luckily I rarely follow advice. Not even my own.
One of WP’s gems on blogwriting is don’t apologise for not being around. Because, who cares? Well, the people who email me and ask if I’m OK, that’s who.
So, an apology to those who were concerned to email me and ask. Hardly surprising given last year’s hospital antics, and an apology to everyone else for not announcing I would be taking a break. Busy, busy etc.
Here is what I planned to write:
It never rains (in Gibraltar) but it pours
Life on the southern end of the Iberian peninsula is currently wet. Very wet.
Search on tinties for wettest parts of Spain and north western Spain comes up. Search for highest rainfall and Grazalema comes up, a pueblo in the province of Cádiz in sunny Andalucía. Somewhere else I read that one of the sierras in Málaga province had the highest rainfall. Whatever, it rains in Andalucía and in Gibraltar.
Probably inspired local famous Gibraltarian music man Albert Hammond’s song, ‘It never rains in southern California’.
And then I meant to tell you all, I wouldn’t be around for a week, or two, or more …
I did have a slight foot setback, but I’ll save that one for a later post.
So here is what happened when I wasn’t blogging. In sunny Spain.
Captions on all piccies. Gallery takes a while to sort pixels, so no, they aren’t all out of focus!
The veg plot
Get these old postcards!
And a rather belated advance warning, ha tee ha, I’ll be thin on the ground for a while yet, due to editing and book review commitments.
For those of you who don’t follow Clouds, I have been posting on there from time to time though.
I will be publishing a couple of book reviews, with a European feel, in coming weeks which may interest people. One, combines Paris and photography, which should appeal to anyone who loves the city, photography or both. I’ll be including lots of pix (the photographer’s, not mine) for all you photography experts. Another is an intriguing novel set in Florence. The third, which may interest you authors and would-be authors out there, is how to sell your books on Amazon.
So there we have it. Hasta la proxima.
