Feria music

When my village celebrated its anual feria last month, the band on the poster shown to the left was one of the performing bands handpicked to entertain us all.

What? Not enticed by the look of them? Not excited about the prospect of hearing them live? Not eager to see what talents lay hidden behind their chuffed grins?

Well, neither was I!
I felt more drawn towards adding a bit of graffiti to their poster. Maybe something along the lines of "Who ate all the pies?"
But I didn't because deep down I am just too bloody nice.

So nice that I might even buy their new record which is supposedly out in the shops now. Nah, just kidding, I wouldn't dream of doing that. You would all think that I had lost my cool ;)

A mudbath is a kind of bath or what?

Guess what my dog managed to find in the Spanish countryside? A mudhole. Happily she ploughed her head through it, rolled it and ran through it.

You can't keep a Labrador out of water! (Or mud it seems)

Yesterday both of my dogs were with a dogsitter all day for the first time. A young woman based in Marbella looked after them, and it all seems to have gone fine. She wasn't too put of by how boisterous they can be.
We had to call the petsitter in the middle of the day to check that everything was going fine, how's that for worried parents!

The reason they were being looked after is that we are going away next week without them, so we wanted them to have a prober introduction to the dogsitter in Spain before being left with her for several days.
So in the weekend they are going to have a sleep over as well...just so it's not too scary when they are there for longer.

What can I say? I like my doggies.

The gayest house in Spain?

Out in the countryside between Coin and Guaro in the Sierra de las Nieves I have spotted possibly the gayest house in Andalucia.

As you might be able to see on the pictures it is as pink as can be! I really dont understand why anyone would have the inclination to paint their house in this colour. It must really hurt your eyes when you stand close to it in sunlight.

Well, each to their own. But I challenge you to find me a more gay house! Please do send me some pics if you come across one.
