I forgot to mention, that we lost a bottle of Vodka from the back of the Car on arrival at the house which of course was a great worry to us all.
As you can see the boot was rather full
The next day bottles of beer rolled out from the boot.
Quote from Ms Mary
“Everytime I hear broken glass, I think F**k, more lost alcohol.”
I think this has to be the quote of the week so far.
Quiet morning – Sun Bunnies Ms L and Mr D out in it earlier then Mr H doing the jigsaw in between reading 'The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo'.
Me playing Scrabble on the iPad (out of picture).Ms Mary and Mr H reading,
Lunch became quite a grand affair. I made Wholemeal bread
Ms Lana in the kitchen making the beautiful salad.
We have discovered wonderful Market Gardens here, with lots of fresh parsley, lettuce, tomatoes, basil coriander, cucumber. Haven’t found any of the hard herbs, rosemary, thyme etc but will check when we eat at the Italian restaurant, Stephanos They are Italian, so should be knowledgeable.
We barbequed some sausages and it was all washed down with some very nice Chilean Rose we have discovered here.
Don’t like their Sauv Blanc but the Pinot Noir is very good.
Dale had left his guitar at the airport on arrival day…as it was special baggage, it took ages to come out so he came through the gate and then tried to get back in, they don't like that, so left it there, for pick up at a later date.
Mary, meanwhile, had left her prescription glasses on the plane, so as it was Monday... they made a special trip to the airport, dropping me off at the Internet Café.
The Sun Seekers donned their Over Active Garb and went walking.
The Internet café was frustrating (our broadband wasn’t on at the house yet)…very slow. BUT Ms Mary and Dale had lots of luck with their mission and retrieved their goods.
The lovely Tim and Tina, now know to Team Raro, as The Tipitinas arrived to have dinner… bringing with them some beautiful Sashimi grade Tuna. This fish is fabulous and so cheap here.
We provided Roast Lamb Bums, Gratin Dauphinois and a cabbage salad. The Cabbages here are also wonderful, so fresh and crisp. Right from someone’s garden.
More wine Vicar?
It soon developed, after a couple of Ms Lana’s spectacular Martinis, into a near riot
First Mr H charmed us all with the mouth organ
Then he entertained us with his excellent rendition of "Swing Low Sweet Chariots".
Karaoke for the Deaf!!!
Please singalong 4:4 Time
And a 1,2,3,4...
"I Looked Over Jordan
And what did I see?
Coming For to Carry Me home"
Girls really impressed
Thank you Mr Heinz
Saw Tim and Tina off on their bike. As it is pitch black and the only illumination the Bike lamp…I think it was an interesting ride down our drive, in fact the bike did fall over, as witnessed by Mr Heinz… who was farewelling them at the time.
Arrived home safely though, we got the phone call to let us know.
We then watched The Rod Stewart Concert. “A F***ing Pansy” apparently, (according to Mr H) but the girls do love him. Mr Dale assumed his normal position… in bed.
More interesting Quotes from Mr H
“I want to say this about that!”
He described himself as “a Humble Host”.
