Finding the leaks
Wednesday, February 03, 2010      2 comments

It's been raining steadily since last night and we're finding the leaks in the house. So far not too bad - 3 damp spots over our heads in the bedroom with one drip. Not a biggie, we pulled the bed away from the wall and I was going to mop the fl... Read more

Yesterday was a busy day in the house and in the office. In the afternoon we took a break and went for a walk around the streets and then on the beach. We walked for about an hour and then sat down at the Soggy Peso - a bar on the beach. DH had ... Read more

Out and about

Yesterday we visited the library. It's very small in a 12'x12' room but a nice selection. The system is bring one, take one - no library card needed, no return dates, very relaxed. Works for me. I didn't know about the bring one, take one and af... Read more
Changing attitudes
Friday, January 29, 2010      5 comments

We've been here nearly 2 months now and it has caused a major change in many things on many levels.... Food - we rarely eat out, everything at home is cooked from scratch as processed foods are hard to find or expensive (and not good for yo... Read more
Slowly getting somewhere

My weight is slowly creeping down, 143.0 this morning. I know it's not a weigh in day but I do hop on the scale every day to keep myself on track. I did a yoga session this morning but cut short the middle part before the cool down because my ri... Read more
Last spanish class
Wednesday, January 27, 2010      4 comments

Today was our last spanish class at Level 1. We learned a lot but still ways to go. I'm not signing up for the next level as I thought the class was a little slow - I'm going to try and study on my own and see how that goes. There's a lot out th... Read more
Stiff joints - a blessing?
Tuesday, January 26, 2010      6 comments

During the night I kept waking up because my hip joints "locked up", changing position helped but only for a little while... My joints have been more creaky and stiffer since we moved here. Maybe it's the humidity? As always there's a trade o... Read more

Creating my own space
Sunday, January 24, 2010      3 comments

Since we moved here I have had to use DH's desk in the office (spare room) to do my office work. His work style is totally the opposite of mine. He likes to have everything out on his desk and to me it looks like a complete mess. I like to have ... Read more
Still raining
Saturday, January 23, 2010      2 comments

It's still raining and very grey outside :( I had a great night's sleep after yesterday's short broken night and started the day with yoga. I've been adding some crunches at the end of it - might as well as I'm on the floor already, right? My... Read more
Big storm
Friday, January 22, 2010      5 comments

The wind kept picking up all day yesterday and after sun down it really got going. We had gusts over 50mph and at one point I thought the big picture window would blow out! I was really scared and I don't scare that easily. All night long the w... Read more
Stormy day
Thursday, January 21, 2010      4 comments

It's been blowing a gale all night and this place is not exactly draft proof :( The wind was howling at the windows... It's cloudy and we may get some rain. The perfect day to get more stuff unpacked and organized. Kitchen space is limited, th... Read more
