When I left my home town of Brighton, I decided to set up a blog, so family and friends could keep up with our new lives here in Spain. My blog posts can be about trips home to visit the family, and seeing my beautiful grandgirlies, to the premature birth of a baby alpaca on our farm. I try and be as honest as I can, and sometimes bear my soul. My blog is very special to me and I feel it very enjoyable plus also therapeutic to write. It would be great if more people were able to see it, and hopefully enjoy it!
About me: Hi, I'm Lorna, I used to live near Brighton in the south of England, where I was a dance teacher for many years. I have 2 children, Mark and Frankie, sadly who are both still in Brighton, who each have a beautiful daughter, so I am a very proud nanny! My partner Alan and I moved to a very small town in Spain, called Montoro, 4 years ago,which the locals call a city, not far from the stunning city of Cordoba, in the Cordoba Province. Montoro is a beautiful traditional town, with houses clinging to the side of the rocks on the banks of the River Guadalquivir. Alan and I live in an old olive mill which we have restored, along with 8 alpacas, 5 dogs, 4 cats and 6 chickens. We live in a very rural area surrounded by olive trees, it's beautiful. Recently I felt the need to earn some extra money and also needed to dance again, so I have been teaching zumba in the town, which I am enjoying immensely , plus helping my Spanish! With live off grid here, and have our electricity from solar and water from a spring!
Teeth, Thyroids and Tricky Times
Well it seems to be baring my soul time on my blog at the moment, so I may as well carry on! Regular readers of my blog will I'm sure have read about my implants (that's not the booby doo type) but the far less glamourous dental sort, and I have been suffering! Not from pain or discomfort from t... Sun, 21 Apr 2013 09:11:00
Brighton for the Beautiful Maisie's Birthday
It was lovely to be met at the airport by my great mate Jo. Mark and Frankie were both working, so I took her up on her offer, and of course we had a good ole catch up on the way home. We made our way back to Brighton where Frankie was teaching one of her dance classes, then home to Frankie and J... Sun, 07 Apr 2013 14:54:00
Ever thought of having implants?
Now that title got your attention didn't it! Now, do I waffle on for a bit, or just let you know immediately that I'm not actually posting about the boob variety. Ok so a little lift and point wouldn't go amiss but I'm afraid that's not what it is about! I wonder how many people have already sto... Sun, 24 Mar 2013 13:46:00
Franks back on the road... yippee!
Well after 25 long miserable days we finally have ole Frank back on the road again. After breaking down en route home from zumba he sat patiently waiting to be made better, outside our house. We had to consider the option of taking him to a local garage and risk it being hugely expensive, or even... Tue, 19 Mar 2013 12:05:00
The story of Saturday and Sunday!
There is no doubt that the hardest thing for me living here is being away from my lovely children, grandchildren and friends. After that the toughest thing is seeing the stray dogs. In Montoro at the the moment there are about three. They scavenge from bins and generally roam around the streets... Sun, 17 Mar 2013 13:42:00
