Never rains but..
This will be brief. Rain, wind, significant bits of the electricity non-functional, poor Mr Handsome suffering after effects - plus court case - of road rage incident - one goat dead after giving birth to two female kids which are now being raised at the goat farm - no milk for them here - chickens suffering from eye disease so laying no eggs. Meantime it's Christmas on Lanzarote like everywhere else and having to do Christmas food shop through rain, gale, crowds, maybe marginally better than having to fight through snow and ice as back in Blighty but tiresome enough. Guests are here, being tolerant, fortunately. They need to be.
So this is just to say that Granny is still alive - just - and here wishing everyone Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. (Merrier, happier than this perhaps - no perhaps, certainly.)
Noone seems to love Obama any more. But she does.
So Merry Christmas to him and his too.
Let it blow/rain/hail less.
