I can’t believe we are half way through our winter trip already. We only have six weeks left before we get back into the Uk. The reason we are having to go back early this trip is because we have changed our jobs and have to go back for 5 days training at the beginning of February. We will be put up in a hotel for that time. Hope they don’t expect me to put trousers on. Our new job is working as wardens for the caravan and motorhome club. We will be based on a site near Fareham in Hampshire next year. It’s a loverly site, we actually stayed there before coming away this year. We are really looking forward to it.

The other morning there was the first bit of snow up on the mountains in the distance, it didn’t last long, as soon as the sun came up it melted it. As usual I have been out on my bike and have been out on smaller rides with Nikki, even taking her off road the other day, only because we got lost but some good photo opportunities. I like derelict buildings and can imagine what they would be like when they were lived in etc. What a view this one below would have had.

And through the square window today.

It’s so peaceful up in the hills with a few old houses scattered about and a few that are still lived in, not like the one in the photo. Every now and then you might see a person walking along with his goats or sheep, or sat in the shade. Also this week I have had my hair cut. Always a great experience in spain when they don’t understand you and you don’t understand them. I don’t really mind because I don’t have to look at it and it must have been ok because I haven’t had to many strange looks while walking about. No more than usual anyway. All around the campsite its quite funny, everyone is excited about Xmas and there are lights everywhere, up the trees around their caravans or motorhomes except for one pitch. Yes you’re right, that’s our pitch. We don’t do Xmas, it’s just another day but this year we have made an effort for you all. So below is what Xmas is about to us, as I say just another day. Happy Xmas.
