Blogging is taking a back seat to building and starting a new life. As is replying to emails, sorry to all and any that are awaiting a reply. This blog is more of a picture book than an update but you’ll get the gist. It’s all we can manage today.
Our Palapa (a Spanish word of Malayan origin, meaning “pulpous leaf” is an open- sided dwelling with a thatched roof made of dried palm leaves ) technically is not now a palapa as there are now several hundred concrete block encasing the ground floor. Eco friendly it ain’t but hurricane proofed it is!
7 weeks and 2 days till our Christmas guests arrive…we are what’s known as ON IT!
The weather as always here in the tropics oscillates between this..
which means sadly this ..
but happily lots of this ….
The bugs are as big as your hands. This is a 10 inch moth.
The snakes and raccoons are too fast to photograph..but this guy was happy to hang on to have his photo taken.
Milo’s 8th birthday party shifted forward two weeks to accommodate the numerous parties here in Paamul and a coincidental visit from his dear friend Rollo back home. Lego was the theme, think Russ and I had more fun putting it together than the kids!
Obviously violent smashing of a massive Piñata and the hysterical scrabble for crappy sweets obligatory.
We’re still looking for our Mexican wheels, our heart’s says this…
our heads say this …. we’ve got neither, still looking.
Friday nights are still movie nights for the kids of Paamul and a glass of vino or ice cold modelo for the adults. Very much looked forward to by all.
Other than that we’re spending every nights in tweaking the house design and reading..
with our first and only night out in 2 months catching up with wonderful friends, Maggie and Sameer from the UK only just last night. A big shout out for you guys!!
A VERY happy Danby send their love to each and every one with a promise to write more.
And last this photo…just cos it sums it all up really.
