I will be posting now and again, but with less frequency. Life is going at a fast pace for me at the moment. There is so much that I have to do.
I am also spending time with my youngest son who is at the top farm.. sorting things out and getting it all ready to be his new home. Keeping some of dad's ideas on.
Excitement in the family.. as my eldest grandson, has arrived at his destination for the next 4 months.. He is at the marine conservation research centre TRAAC on Pom Pom island of the Borneo mainland.
studying marine life conservation.. coral reefs and other. A great choice ..as he lives just about in the sea.
He aquired his diving licence in Kenya last year.. and due to sailing and knowledge of the sea. Having done one Atlantic crossing.. he is a little ahead of some of the others. We all wish him luck.
Here the garden is over growing. This week Pedro has been pruning and trimming back all the overgrowth, and its slowly looking like my garden again. We are having a relatively mild winter.. although cold, the sun is shining and thats nice.
All is the same, in my little paradise here in Alentejo. Life is busy and the days pass quickly.
I hope to catch up with you all, as time goes on.
Thank you to all my dear friends for following me during these last 4 years. Its been great. Hope that it continues.
I am also enjoying instagram.. FB and faffing with my ipad.
Wishing you all a wonderful Sunday..
