This morning, my floodlights turned up from Singapore, just 1.5 weeks after being shipped. Our friendly female post-lady turned up mid-morning and strangely needed to see my passport… I’m sure that’ll not last long when she gets to know us.
The floods are infra-red remote controlled and not only manage the usual range of colours and various sequencing options – but unlike many they also manage decent shades of yellow and white! They look properly waterproofed and they are BRIGHT but of course I can’t do anything in daylight – so watch out for updates this evening!
To add to the morning’s success I figured out why my Internet cameras were not working since the modem upgrade – so they’re now working a treat.
Neighbour, Dave, Tom and I have made our first moves towards fixing the road at the top – we’ve smashed up the raised area and filled with stones then sand – the next step is to put a layer of concrete on the top but even now the road is a lot smoother (probably would not survive a downpour at this point).
At lunchtime, Maureen and I went off to the garage in Huescar to pick up our newly repaired Meganne – and I have to say the cost was lower than we expected… the car is working a treat so now for a short while we have two!
We went off from there to the main park in Huescar for lunch – there’s a little cafe in the middle of it and in an area around the front of the cafe they have a watering system giving off a very fine mist – absolutely marvellous! We had hamburgeresa completa – which in this case meant everything but the kitchen sink – well recommended and a great location.
From there a trip to Huescar pool – absolutely lovely.
