Border Collie was sick too this morning, but it was a greaseball I put out for the birds!
Geoff, France is better than Spain. I've been to Valencia and Costa Brava, C Blanca and C del Sol. Too hot in summer, garden would burn up, OK for holidays. Went once in January to look at holiday homes, there was a howling gale and it was cold. Do you speak Spanish? Hard moving to any country when you don't speak the lingo. If anyone would like to see some photos of my neck of the woods they are in the thread blue flowers by Verdun, because I couldn't manage to send a photobucket album to someone called ThaiGer in Thailand who sent some super photos. Now that's somewhere that looks beautiful, green and no winters.
