Life in Culebrón is a very British view of life in a small village in Alicante province, my experience of Spain, of Spaniards and sometimes of the other Britons who live nearby. The tabs beneath the header photo link to other blogs written whilst I was living in other parts of Spain, to my articles written for the now defunct TIM magazine and to my most recent photo albums.

Nothing to report

I haven't made any posts for a while because nothing much has happened that relates to the generality of life in Spain but I thought I should post something to prove that I'm still alive.

I didn't get the job. They didn't take to me but that was probably for the best as the working day was based around shifts and the journey from Cartagena or Pinoso would have been difficult and may have led to Maggie and I living in separate places again.

I've been buying cheese, rather than shampoo, for the marketing people. This time I had to buy different brands but with the same expiry date for each brand. It was very difficult to get the number required with the correct date. This time at least I understand why it was being done though I'd better not say as I hope they may give me more work.

My mum's here at the moment for a week to sample the delights of Cartagena and Culebrón. She has been shocked to move from the very temperate climate of Cartagena to the blasted heath that is Culebrón this weekend.

There have been a couple more posts on the TIM website and in the TIM magazine. Far too many grammatical and spelling mistakes for my liking (all my fault)!

I'll be back when I have something to say.

I missed you!
I read about the storm that hit Spain and France, and I wondered whether or not you'd lost your internet connection because of it.
Glad to hear you're still alive.

No I'm afraid it closed down a while ago
