Several people from Germany, after the plane they were travelling in landed at Palma airport.

Too much, too soon?

The Mallorcans are quite capable themselves of driving numbers up without help from outsiders!

the mysterious and magical world of technology.

‘If you can afford to have something fixed, then don’t stress about it for a second, just pay a man who can’.

Last year when Spain was in lockdown and we could only go out on our balconies.

The last of the lockdowns?

So, what to do? Although the regulations aren’t currently as limiting as they were back in March 2020 when we were completely confined to the homestead, we are once again being encouraged to ‘STAY HOME’.

Fairs and fiestas

A rainbow over Mancor de la Vall.

Look to the Rainbow

It has just been announced that this years Dijous Bo, the largest, busiest and most popular fiesta on the entire island, has been cancelled.

Out & About

Majorca

Never say die

This past summer we made a killer list of all those favourite things we used to do.

Out & About

Cyclists

The Masked Avenger

It seems that with all the information circulating as to how this virus spreads, cyclists seem to tick a lot of those boxes, so why no masks? And why are they allowed to travel so freely around the island? Perhaps something the government needs to address?

Out & About

People walking wearing face masks in the Plaza Major in Palma.

Masking the Situation

Admittedly, every aspect of our lives has changed irrefutably, and we all yearn for a miracle return to how things were before.

Out & About

General view of the Playa de s'illot.

Too Many Too Soon?

I love Majorca wholeheartedly. To me, the island has always been like a naughty child that is constantly full of surprises.

Out & About

The San Joan Fiesta, the first and possibly most looked forward to fiesta of the season.

A Fool’s Paradise

This time last year, our village of Mancor de la Vall was also enjoying its boisterous San Joan Fiesta...

Out & About

Gingernuts.

The Thief of Time

My ultimate star in lockdown has got to be the most ‘to die for’ gingernuts, which I now make, following a recipe I’ve had for 25 years and never got round to baking before.

Out & About

Putting signs and notices in place just doesn’t seem to work efficiently.

Medical Matters

Some people really don’t seem to get that 2 metres is NOT 2 feet! And certainly NEVER two inches!

Wisteria

Start snipping at your garden now

Gardening tips of the week: I mention some of this cutting back and thinning out now because our autumn and then winter winds are sometimes extremely strong and gusty, doing untold damage to trees and shrubs breaking off branches in all the wrong places, even blowing or up-rooting the whole tree.
