Stealing Grandma's Tights

Stealing Grandma's Tights

Dexter has always loved slippers, socks and shoes as you can see in his blog, Dexter's Day. So when Grandma came to visit from Ireland, he kept nosing in her luggage and rummaging around for things to steal.

One night we are all sitting around with some of our lovely new friends in Spain and ... BAM ... out charges Dexter trailing Grandma's tights in his jaw.

At it again. Dexter loves all things little and soft and chewy. From a pup, he has gone after shoes. Many a time we had visitors and their shoes would go missing. We had to warn everyone to keep their shoes in the 'safe-house' under the stairs.

Even when we were selling our house and we had potential buyers over to view the house, he would snatch their shoes at the door and charge around the garden making it pretty damn impossible to retrieve the visitors shoes.

Snow Capped Mountains

Snow Capped Mountains

What is lovely about spending winter in Spain is not only the gorgeous sunny days and clear blue skies, but sometimes you get stunning views across the Sierras like this one. After a chilly night spent in front of the fire, we go into our local town, Competa, to be greeted with this view of the snow capped mountains.

You can get snowy mountains anywhere. But ones that are backed with endless blue sky and mediterranean homes hugging the hillside are wonderful to see so early in the morning.

Why Do Humans Love to Be Scared?

Why Do Humans Love to Be Scared?

When I was little my darling Mom always took us to new movies. I remember one time we went along and my sisters wanted to see a scary film. Me, being a real wuss, didn't want to go so Mom had to come along with me to watch Annie.

Over the years I started a love-hate relationship with scary books. I hated that they made me scared, but a delicious part of me loved to be scared.

Living In The Spanish Mountains

Living In The Spanish Mountains

Living In The Spanish Mountains has its ups and downs. Sorry, that just came out, I didn't plan it ...

Competa has the most amazing views. From our rental home we can see the sea at Malaga and the mountains behind us, leading to the Sierra Nevada. We often go up to this viewing point for a picnic or to have a sundowner (yes, even in winter!) and Dexter charges around scaring us by peering over the steep slopes. He has no fear!

Cross Dresser

Just when you think you're safe and your folks won't embarrass you any more ... WHAM! Look what happened to Dexter.

His Grandma bought him PJs to keep him warm at night in Spain, but he had no intention of being seen in public in pink stripes - until I caught him red-handed!

Ken is calling him a cross dresser. He says Dexter has joined the Big Girls Blouse gang. His friend Murph in Perham sometimes wears a raincoat and another pooch friend Fred wears an astronaut suit. And Dexter ~ all he gets is a stripy jumper.

Loo With A View

Loo With A View in Spain

I haven't blogged much lately because we have been doing so much house hunting because it has been so lovely to have our three sons coming over to visit us for the Christmas season (even though it's January now). There have been too many house viewings to mention, but I thought this one was worth posting.

This is for real, guys. And it's the guest loo. It overlooks a dry riverbed and a dam wall. Why someone wanted to dam up a dry riverbed I have no idea. Imagine doing your business sitting out there in the open!
