Season confusion

Thursday, October 7th, 2010

It's all so confusing, isn't it? The weather, that is. At this time of year, it can be boiling hot - bikini weather - one minute, and then fleece-chilly the next. First thing in the morning, you have to wrap you and yours up snuggly warm and put the car ...

How the wind doth blow

Soon after my arrival in Andalucia, I became aware of the huge popularity of water sports in the area, especially in the South West of Andalucia on the Cadiz coastline. Tarifa in particular boasts one of the best kite surfing locations in the world and it is popular not only ...

Day of High Drama

Thursday, July 8th, 2010

And I'm not just talking about the football, more of which later. Yesterday those of us who live in and around Seville experienced a weather phenomenon which, while mild in comparison to those in the US, scared the living daylights out of me, and I was at home. It was like ...

What is interesting about this song, ...

Ship to Shore

Monday, March 1st, 2010

I hope you're having a good puente, if you live in Andalucia, where yesterday - 28 February - was Andalucia Day. I am sure I'm not alone in thinking that three-day weekends are the way to go, especially when the weather turns out to be considerably better (warmer, drier, sunnier) ...

A Sense of Place

Singing in the Rain

Monday, February 15th, 2010

OK, I’m afraid it’s inevitable, with the skies as they are today. How can I not talk about the grim weather we´re having? Especially since my family just called me from England to say how beautiful and sunny it is there, and how my parents and my brother’s family, visiting ...

Here Comes the Sun

Monday, February 1st, 2010

Oh dear, I seem to be rather weather-obsessed, don't I? I blame my mother, who being a typical Englishwoman, is never happier than when discussing what sort of wind is blowing, where it's coming from, and whether there's going to be a frost tomorrow morning. The weather forecasts on TV ...

Snow in Sevilla

Monday, January 11th, 2010

Hello, it's Monday and for many people it's the first real work day of the year. Yes, I know, there were some 'dias laborables' last week, but it's hard to get back into things properly when Reyes chops your week in half. So this is our first full week, and ...
