Busy Days

The last few days have been rather hectic, it's the grandchildren's half-term so we helped out with an overnighter for the two eldest on Wednesday and they stayed here all day Thursday. We love seeing them but it does mean some late night work to catch up. Gluttons for punishment [not really the right expression] we now have the youngest two here tonight [Saturday] on what they like to refer to as a
"Sleepover". We are taking them to their other Grandparents tomorrow afternoon for a Birthday Tea for their Daddy and then back home they go with The Daughter and the Birthday Boy.

In the middle of all this I have been trying to start a new marketing operation for our property in Spain to try and see if we can interest magazines or film makers in using our estate. We did have a Spanish music video shot on the property which went well and it is something I'd like to pursue. Anyhow it is certainly worth a try. On the holiday rentals side we only have one week still available in August and hopefully some of the other enquiries will firm up into definite bookings. Don't forget if any of you are interested fellow bloggers get special rates!


  1. Lovely that you have been able to spend some time with the grandchildren, although it can be a bit tiring at times! Wouldn't that be wonderful if you could get some film makers or magazines to make use of your property in Spain. Good, also, that your rental diary is looking so good for the coming year.

  2. Fingers crossed we can get some extra income towards the mortgage if we can tempt a commercial booking. One of my friends has booked one apartment for her children and grandchildren for a week, she has come often and stays with us, she is hoping apart from her London based brood that her son who lives in Israel will also come. As she says when you have children who live abroad they never feel they have a holiday when they come back for a visit. Family duty calls etc etc., but all getting together in another country for a real change of scene for everyone would be more fun all round.
