An unintentional ‘selfie’
Today has presented a few photo opportunities. My alarm (in the guise of Sheba the cat) was a bit late going off this morning and I opened my eyes at around 7:15 am and was greeted by a very unusual … Continue reading

There are some clever TV adverts around. We don’t see many these days because we no longer have tv, other than sky news and a couple of programmes that you would have to be extremely bored to even think about … Continue reading

Shhh…….can you keep a secret?
We were a little tired this morning (Sunday) following an extremely late night at the Cómpeta feria (actually very tired and a little jaded after getting to bed at 4:00 am and our animal alarm going off at 7:00 am). … Continue reading

Who needs clocks when you’ve got animals?
We don’t need clocks and watches in our house – we always know when it’s food o’clock I am reliably woken every morning at exactly 7:00 am when my cat Sheba commences her demands for breakfast. Although a rescue moggie … Continue reading

Me and my shadow
I guess this post could be alternatively titled ‘spot Roly’. The only photos he is missing from are those taken on camino.
A walk on the dark side
Today Liana, Roly and I took ourselves for a trip into the Canillas de Albaida valley, down to the river where we can usually find a bit of grass for Liana, although it is rather sparse at the moment. It … Continue reading
Roly saves the day
We don’t get much excitement in the Wolfe/Woodward household, and that is just how we like it. We don’t even have the TV to distract us these days, since a new satellite was launched recently and the UK TV beam … Continue reading

My space – my rules!
I was a little bleary-eyed this morning after a rather good night at Cómpeta’s first hoe-down, which involved much merriment, a few glasses of wine and a bit of a late night. However my animals have no respect for a … Continue reading

Another week in paradise
I am now ten days into the self-imposed alcohol ban and have started on the 5:2 diet – had to wait a few days to get going because for some reason I find myself unable to start a diet on … Continue reading

OK, time to get serious
Aged eight weeks my boys are now old enough to fly the nest. I have given them wings and now they need to find new homes. You can see my post here describing how I came to care for these … Continue reading

What a glorious day
We have experienced a whole spectrum of weather conditions in the last few days. Just a week ago (the night/morning of 19/20 December) we had winds so strong that they lifted from outside our door a very heavy wooden cupboard … Continue reading
Animals………….who’d have them?
We have a household of sulks and dis-satisfaction. Poor Roly is most perturbed by the presence of our two interlopers and is spending a lot of his time outside the house to show his disgust. Sheba has been in a … Continue reading

It’s a dog’s life!
The shopping trip couldn’t be delayed any longer (we had run out of cava!), so we trundled down to the coast yesterday and, as it wasn’t too hot, we took Roly with us. We can leave him at home without … Continue reading
