Yesterday, as I was coming out of the pharmacy in Freshford I noticed the older couple parked in front of me was having car trouble. I sounded like they needed a jump start and since I carry cables I offered to help them out.
So I hooked everything up and we gave it a try, but all I succeeded in doing was draining my own battery so we were both stranded.
On to Plan B, I rang the auto-rescue and they sent out a mechanic though it took the bones of an hour. Thankfully there was no permanent damage to either my car or the other couple's and we were both on the road after a minute. Still, it threw my whole day out of whack and I only got done half what I wanted to when I finally got to Kilkenny.
I did get to see the Santa Claus parade but only because I got stuck behind it which only made me later. But I mustn't gripe too much. I got the essentials done. The rest can wait until next weekend.
In the meantime I may re-read my owner's manual and make sure I know what I'm doing for the next time.
Once again I feel I have to apologise for not being around as much as I would like. As usual college is keeping me busy. But it's reading week and a long weekend to boot so I have a little (too little really ) time.
I know I haven't been around the OC much (work has me pretty busy, but that's another post)
I see that lots of people have moved, are moving, or may be moving sometime in the future. Well, you can add two more to the list. My brother and his wife are currently moving from Vancouver to Saskatchewan. And Mam and I will be moving at the end of the month.
We're going nowhere near as far, just the other end of the valley on the far side of the village. It's a nice farmhouse and I think we'll be quite happy there, but it's the move itself that has me concerned. I'm only going to have this weekend and the next and I'm not sure if it's enough time. Plus I'll have to get ready for the start of college straight after.
Oh, it will all work out in the end. It always does. But for now I just need a bit of time with my neuroses.
Just a quick post (now that I have mostly figured out these Spanish keyboards ) to let you know that enjoying myself here in Nerja The sun is "splitting the stones" but there´s a nice breeze off the Med and plenty of cold cervesa We even managed to figure out how to get an ice coffee after a few failed experiments.
We´ve been taking it easy for the most part, though yesterday we did a little road trip to see the Alhambra. Amazing place, I took lots of photos which will be coming.
Only a couple of days left here, which is nowhere near long enough, but I´ll make the best of it.
