Still homeless!

We are staying in B&B until next Wednesday and then we move onto our son's until our house purchase is complete, still not sure what date yet.

Our hosts at the B&B are fabulous, as is their home.  Their dog, Pepper, is a delightful Cockerpoo, only just 1 year old and so friendly,  I love her.  Our little Bichons are confused but seem to be 'going with the flow'.

We are currently sitting in the car over looking Douglas Bay, on Douglas Head.  Nice sunny day today.  There seem to be a lot of tourists still here.

Had a few 'fun and games' sorting out hubby's phone when replacing SIM card with a local one - it was locked to the Irish carrier!   Errrr.. made me very cross as I paid mega Euros to get that phone unlocked a couple of years ago.  Anyway after a 3 hour phone call, which also included Apple in a 'conference' call with Vodafone, it finally got sorted - PHEW.  Glad they ended up phoning me back, on my phone, wouldn't have wanted that charge.

On another issue, while I appreciate the priority is to protect the individual what a 'faff' to change address on bank and credit cards - almost impossible, I can't believe how difficult they make it.  Waste of time talking to anyone on the phone about this they are so 'helpful' NOT!  I posted change of address to most of them before we left Ireland and all of them must have been sent around the globe, collecting airmiles or something, as 2 weeks later the details have still not been updated!

I must stop grumbling but I have to let off steam - CALM DOWN AND CARRY ON Susan - OK rant over.

Now I am going to walk my doggies along Marine Drive so we can all have a leg stretch and a bit of exercise.

Update you later.

I just hope it doesn't take as long as it took to pack!

  3. What a beautiful landscape! You will live in a beautiful place. And everyday problems will be solved with time, a little patience. It seems to me that those who love minis have a lot of patience. Hugs, Julia
