When I retired from the Police in 2006, family and friends said, “Now you can take it easy”, they must have been having a joke, since that day, I have never been so busy, I often wonder how I ever had time to attend paid employment! The last ten days have been no exception. IContinue reading “I love keeping busy!”

Work, work and work!
They say it’s good for the soul, I have to admit I love being busy, but it’s getting to the stage that I have to know when enough is enough! I have been enjoying my hydrotherapy at Fundación Rienes, in Rionegro, it is certainly helping my knees, the Therapists give everyone some individual attention duringContinue reading “Work, work and work!”
Changes are on the Way!
Last week we went to Fisinova to cancel further appointments for Physiotherapy,, it was my intention to tell the Physiotherapist to her face why I was cancelling, rather than just ring and cancel, but she was not at work, so we saw her stand-in, who advised us to fill in a complaint form, which weContinue reading “Changes are on the Way!”
God Save the King!
The start of a new era, but despite being on the other side of the world, I will always be English, so I was awake at 5am, sometimes time differences can be a pain! glued to the TV, only the Coronation Ceremony was shown, but I expect the procession will be on YouTube later, IContinue reading “God Save the King!”
Relax…That’s a Joke!
After my knee Nerve Blocks, I was supposed to sit with my feet up for five days, but that’s not me! I sat around for a day and a bit, and that was all I could manage, to be honest, I think Marcela was glad, at least she only had to walk Nala once. WeContinue reading “Relax…That’s a Joke!”
My weeks seem to be much shorter these days, with at least two days a week written off for Physiotherapy and Hidrotherapy, the only upside of those days is having lunch out, either with Marcela, or if she was busy on my own. The Physiotherapy is coming to an end, the Therapist has been makingContinue reading “Ouch!”
It’s been a long week
We are now up and running on the Police VHF Radio, Marcela has taken a serious interest, which is probably just as well, as trying to understand what is being said, as the speed they talk is proving difficult, it’s bad enough when we are face to face, but at least I can understand moreContinue reading “It’s been a long week”
What a Family!
Tuesday, I went for my first Therapy sessions, first for Physiotherapy at Fisinova in Rionegro, and I have to say that by the time I left at the end of the 40 minutes, my opinion of SURA provided physiotherapists has not changed since my experience in 2016, when physio for my knee lead to monthsContinue reading “What a Family!”
I know that the seasons of old have been changing over recent years, much like everywhere else in the world, but I am really missing my four seasons of three months, Summer, Winter, Summer, Winter, we looked forward to the next summer, it was always just around the corner, but our last summer lasted aboutContinue reading “Winter?”
It’s been a funny old week, unfortunately not all in a good way. Firstly we learned that a neighbouring Finca has been sold off On the other side of the lane from us, a view I have always loved, the suspicion is that it will be turned into a holiday Centre, with cabins dotted aboutContinue reading “Interesting!”
