    Hi Everyone,

    Not sunny here but a lot warmer than London was this weekend.
    The Hymer has pulled up in Tavira.
    The supermarket "site" is empty (never stopped there myself.)
    The new shopping centre is open and there was a rumour last year that there would be a Burger King there... bang goes the diet...

    Just making a late lunch then off to Cabanas (Beach Cafe) for tonight's footy.

    In the Harlan Coben thriller I am reading the hero quotes,

    "Man makes plans. God laughes."

    Well, bang go my Christmas plans!

    Look what they have done to my parking space on the front in Cabanas, Eastern Algarve...

    I just finished this book last week! "promise me" ? the quote struck a cord with me as well. I have read all the Myron Bolitar novels

    another quote I heard this week supposedly a Taliband one is: Our enemy's have watches we have the time

    Where there's a will there's a way...

    I checked up on the road works later today and found the big machinery had moved down the road thus freeing my preferred spot. I left the spacious space I spent last night in and went around the back streets and am now in position!!!

    Well happy and am giving the site free advertising...
