|By the pool on Sunday afternoon - Oli with her friends (Pippa always in the picture hahaha).|
|The results of the second Spanish general elections last Sunday - another deadlock|
|At least Spain beat Italy at tennis on Monday - Garbiñe Muguruza at Wimbledon when she played and won against Camila Giorgi|
|At least the English were able to resort to their sense of humour after their humiliating loss to little Iceland in the Euros on Monday night.|

|Terror at Ataturk airport Istanbul on Tuesday night.|
|I put on a lovely reception for the special Yoigo Morning on Wednesday.|
I was melting too and spent most of the afternoon indoors with the air conditioning on. The pool was out of action as another leak has been found and the swimming pool people came to fix it. Thankfully it was a leak from the skimmer so we didn't have to empty the pool again.
We've had leaks in the garden too from the irrigation system and on Wednesday the gardeners laid down a whole new pipe. They dug up most of the garden and it's not a pretty sight. I do hope their efforts succeed as Eladio has been forever fixing little leaks here and there all over the lawn for years now each of which take up a lot of his time and worry him or course; not to mention the cost in the waste of water.
On Thursday, my fasting day, I was busy with work as we had announced on our social media sites that the Sinfin 20gb tariff was returning as a promotion in July. We got a lot of stick from some of our followers who criticized us for the tariff only being available for new customers. Well it's just a promotion and promotions come and go. Do people complain when a product is at a certain price at a shop and then goes down in the sales? Well no right. In any case it's the best mobile tariff by far in the market and anyone joining us now will be happy I can tell you; practically unlimited voice and data. And once they've signed on the tariff is forever. So, if you are in Spain and belong to another operator, this is your chance to join Yoigo. You won't be disappointed. Well there is a bit of propaganda for you hahaha.
|The Sinfín 20gb is back for the month of July, by far the best mobile tariff in the market.|
Whilst that was happening one good piece of news emerged; that Boris Johnson was not running for Tory leadership. Thank goodness for that. It is now between Teresa May and Michael Gove. I'm not familiar with either but was not happy to read that the former said she would propose a Brexit leaver to head up the negotiations with the EU on the UK's withdrawal. You see I'm still hoping Parliament will not approve it.
On Thursday morning too Eladio went to buy a ceiling fan lamp to replace the ghastly dining room lamp in our bedroom which we bought second hand when we first got married. It really was time for a change. We have air conditioning but on not such hot evenings it will be nice to use. But above all it looked a lot better.
|The new ceiling fan lamp in our bedroom. Love it!|
|Me on the telly again on Thursday night. A photo one of the participants sent me when she watched the programme.|
|Oli with the keys to her new rented flat. She moved in on Thursday night.|
Well that was how it was supposed to be. I am now writing from Madrid Barajas airport after my 12.20 Vueling flight to Paris was cancelled. Like when I tried to travel with Norwegian to London not long ago this flight was cancelled and I was offered another flight tomorrow. Obviously I didn't accept it as I wanted to arrive today. So I had to buy another ticket. I was lucky to get one as today is 1st July. I will now hopefully be flying out of Madrid at 18.45 arriving Orly at 20.40 if all goes well. As I have plenty of time on my hands now I thought I would finish this post and publish it whilst I am here. It's bad luck isn't it? To quote my Mother: "it's shitty, could be shittier". Hope Google doesn't censor this hahaha.
Keeping my fingers crossed I will get to Paris tonight.
So I'll leave you now until next week when I hope to tell you all about my trip to France
Cheers till then,
