Sunny Portugal and The New Bloggers Blog Hop

We have been on our travels from the UK to Portugal. The first part of the journey was to drive down to the south coast and catch a ferry from Portsmouth.  The ferry took 28 hrs and we arrived at Bilbao on the north coast of Spain. Then a 7 hr drive down to Central Portugal.





Hubby has started cutting the grass, there’s not a lot of green!!!

The house had been empty since April so the spiders had taken over and it took a couple of days to clean up . We have to work in the garden and some of the house could do with a lick of paint. Work takes place early in the morning as the temperature  gets into the mid 30’s by noon.
