HASTA APPROXIMA AMIGOS_ESTOY IENDO A ESPAÑA.


It is with a heavy heart that I have to tell you that I am off to Spain tomorrow for six weeks to try and catch the last of the summer that we didn't get in Scotland.

Away to Mazarrón, near Murcia to do the house up, so I won't get much time to sit in the sun, much.  Hopefully this time, my fucking laptop won't blow up and I have turned the 'data while roaming' off on my phone, so I won't get a £500 bill from Orange when I come back.

Once I get a phone line of sorts, or at least what passes for a phone line in Spain, I'll be back to being the annoying bastard that you all know.  As we are driving there is WIFI in most of the hotels we are staying in and the neighbours have just put a satellite phone in so I might be able to nick some of his.

Please keep the arguments going in my absence and I'll try to keep up!  Oh and I've been promised tickets for the Spain v Scotland game in Alicante in October.  If anyone is looking for a cheap house or good cheap accommodation, give me a shout and I'll scout something out for you when I'm over.

Enjoy yourselves.

Don't do anything rash, like decide to become a permanent ex-Pat.

6 fucking weeks!?! What are you ? A closet fucking BANKER!
No. I'm not jealous, I LIKE my week at Butlins.

Budvar said...

Banned, that's where you're going wrong. For the price of a long weekend in some centreparc type place in an exotic location like Nuneaton or some place just off the M6. you can get a fortnight in Spain all in!!

The Young Oligarch said...

That sounds ominous , DL .

Remember my high blood pressure .

Billy said...

@Budvar "you can get a fortnight in Spain all in" Not if you've got an ASBO, they won't let me go.

Dark Lochnagar said...

Banned, no just someone who inhereited a house from my in-laws!

Dark Lochnagar said...

Budvers, dead right! I can get you a villa in Mazarron for £150 per week which will sleep 6. You can get cheap flights to Murcia for fuck all.

Dark Lochnagar said...

Oli, I'm almost afraid to see your reaction!

Dark Lochnagar said...

Billy, they'll not be fucking blue and white that's for sure!

Dark Lochnagar said...

Fred, I hope you tidied up after you left?

Dark Lochnagar said...

Banned, you'll do well on the Costa Crime!

Sir Fred the Shred said...

I didn't take up your offer DL. I took one look at the bars on your windows and came over all queasy and frightened. Don't know why. I'm a knight of the realm and untouchable.

Dark Lochnagar said...

Fred, you're OK, they're to keep the squatters out!
