There is not much to report, it has been an odd week, I seem to have been bobbing in and out on the Bike most days, mainly shopping, that is one of the disadvantages of being on a bike, it now comes down to buying our food, little and often! Pepe, seems to be improvingContinue reading “Another Week Passed”

Marcela had to be out of the house by 7.15 this morning, I was up at my usual time of 5.30am, but this time ensured that Marcela got up to, instead of rolling over and going back to sleep! I took the dogs for their walk, it was obvious that we were in for aContinue reading “Early Start”
The Cat is Out of The Bag!
It\’s been a non productive week on the whole, Wednesday I went to give blood for routine tests that came back normal, yesterday we went for Marcela\’s optician check up, fortunately no change, but with four years and the same specs, it was time for a new pair. We then went for lunch, and IContinue reading “The Cat is Out of The Bag!”
Just Another Day
Yesterday, I went off for the morning, just to get out, I didn\’t accomplish much, but as they say a change is as good as a rest. This morning, I started by doing some gardening, I cut the grass, and then trimmed the azulina hedge, much to the annoyance of a big bee, which stungContinue reading “Just Another Day”
A Working Day!
Yesterday was written off, Marcela had a medical appointment on the other side of Medellin, mid morning, and being the first with this Specialist, I went for moral support, I was beginning to think she had been admitted, she was in so long. We then headed back to Niquia for lunch, before she went toContinue reading “A Working Day!”
Gardening and Electrical Work
I started the day with some gardening, before the sun was high enough to singe my bonce! I cut the azulina and bougainvillea hedge, it has grown fast, at the weekend I will have to cut the other one on the roadside. That done it was time for something a bit petty, but it madeContinue reading “Gardening and Electrical Work”
I thought we had had bad weather, but one of the benefits, if you can call it that, of living half way up a mountain, is that although you can get swept away, there is little chance of you getting flooded, and that is exactly what happened in the city of Medellin yesterday. The tributariesContinue reading “Change Tack!”
Things Looking Up!
Tonight starts a a four and a half day Fiesta for Semana Santa (Easter), we are keeping our fingers crossed regarding the volume of music in the surrounding fincas, but it wont come as any surprise, if there is a problem, we\’ll just have to deal with it. This morning, I started out by takingContinue reading “Things Looking Up!”
Back to Work
There is a piece of my fence that borders the road, that until recently has been covered by the azulina hedge on the road side, but with the work I did in the lane alongside us, I cut all the azulina down from the side of the workshop, where it was growing along the fence,Continue reading “Back to Work”
This morning was yet another scorcher, blue skies and sun, so I decided to do some gardening, I trimmed the azulina hedge, the Dame de La Noche, and then pruned the trees, two orange trees and a peach tree, It certainly looks a lot tidier now, but when I had finished the lawn looked likeContinue reading “Gardening”
