Saturday 21st November 2015…a relaxing day!!!

Remember those Saturday mornings in San Miguel when I used to write that Saturday was a sports day WELLLLLL today was almost the same except I was not playing tennis BUT woke up to have breakfast watching live tennis from London and a good match it was although not for Andy!!!!

Whilst I was watching the game my computer was doing it’s own thing sort of…Actually my go to guy Marc, in Nanaimo had sent me a download allowing him to remotely take over my computer…so I am watching tennis and he his working on the puter…funny to see all the movements without me touching it.

and i spent most of the morning doing planning and packing because on Monday I fly to Queenstown pick up a rental car and drive down town to the Hiking company where there is a pre hike meeting and then I drive to an airbnb place where I am staying for the night and then leave my suitcase with the hosts and drive back to down town turn in the car and commence the journey to the hiking start.

In the afternoon even though it was still raining I needed to get out and do some shopping so I found a Mall and bought a couple of things I needed plus I intend to cook a real supper tonight.

Was home by mid afternoon and as I drank a cuppa tea turned on the Tv and what do I see but a live hockey game from Detroit!!!!
