Donkey moving day

After weeks of preparation it is hard to realize that today is the day. The donks will go to their new home. I have my alarm set for 5 am. Staying in Finestrat with friends tonight. Then I must get the donkeys ready to leave at 6 am.

Field ready for them at El Parral.



It is really wonderful. The hardest part was working through the last weeks of full-time teaching while buying a property. Everyone needs your attention – as professional teacher and as purchaser – and you begin to lose energy. (I am 64!!!)

Then – unluckily – I had the Brummy Jeohovah’s Witless factor complicating matters. The  busybodies next door kept trying to intrude in my field before I had left (saying the landlord had said they could use the land after I had gone.) So they chopped up my vegetable patch before I could take it away. Tied up my tomato plants to claim them… etc.

After a lot of very rood and norty language (at a very high volume) these unspeakable heretics can

now be sure that not every Catholic is a push-over for their Arian heresy. Here is Spain they would have been burnt at the stake 400 years ago.

Since the Brummie tosser strimmed 24 onions on my patch, I think burning is too good. He should have had his liver ripped out and had it fed to geckos.


The new stable base. 6 tons of concrete. How did we mix it in one day, let alone a day of 40 degrees centigrade… ?

All news tomorrow including pics of donkeys on the road and in their new home.

  1. Jehovah’s Witlessness plague us too, here, mostly in motor cars that drive up our driveways. I give them scant praise for their persistence: I worship Icons and Statues,being Christian Orthodox. That seems to make them run since they are errant Arians! Good luck to you, Rabbit in your new home with the donks. Aren’t they luvvable, as ours are.
