Discovering Vintage!

Ok, so planning my things to do in Italy, when we go.  As there are a few of us working together this means we have the chance to spend our time Shopping.!  Not for me the modern day shopping,  Im talking about hunting down vintage gems! (as in clothes, hats boots and quirky bits!)  I know this is a long shot, do they do Vintage in parts of Italy they way they do here?

We are also going to Spain as and added few weeks, (My employer is taking her Niece there for her 21st birthday and first “European Shopping Tour”  !)

So we are hitting the biggies apparently  We are arriving in Barcelona, then onto Valencia Cordoba Madrid Seville, Ending in Gibraltar.  (I think thats the correct route, not good on my maps !)

I know nothing or no-one in Spain,  I have been to Gibralter as a child, But we mostly lived in Portugal.  These are all going to be ‘pit-stops’  of a few days, and while my employer will be spending time with family, we get to visit the sites, (have been given orders to expand our minds!)

So looking forward to this.  Await the picture of our Tour!

 

Well, .. I’ve been back in the UK for a bit,  luckily visited a couple of my friends and hijacked their WIFI to trawl my 2367 emails!   I spent a wonderful re-couperation in Naples,  bit nervy being alone, but soon blended into life with the help of some fine wine and pizzas!

Im also back temp at the care job, have worked in Hereford, Cornwall, the Wirral and now in North Wales for 2 weeks.  Although its live in 22 hours a day of care, we do get a lot of free time, so it helps me to carry on working on my Foodie Writing and researching.  Plus they let you use a communal laptop in most places – which helps a great deal. (So long as your remember which version of Windows your on!!!!)

One of the ladies I have worked for in the past has heard about my predicament, through the grapevine, and is going abroad for a few months  She has asked me to join her as a companion and carer. We will be starting off with a River Cruise, then moving on to visit her family in Italy and then up to others in France and Spain.  So Ive accepted that,  shes a fascinating lady of 79,  so will also be helping her to type up her journals, which she is hoping to pass on to grand daughters and family.  I feel honoured.

Family life for me didnt improve.  Which is why I suppose Ive signed up for many work-away jobs, moving around the country for a week at a time, takes your mind off things.

Thankfully I have  some great friends to help me.  One friend has been great She has allowed me to steal her WIFI and use her Computer when I was stuck!.

I am also thankful to her for introducing me to WordPress, as she had friends who ‘BLOG’, and Ive followed theres, and have been inspired by other people who have overcome similar issues to me.  This in turn has helped me to find ‘virtual’ friends who have also been supportive, and although they are scattered across the world, they know who they are, and I thank them for their continued texts and emails of simple “how are you?” ‘s.

Well this is all I can write for now,  its suprising how quick a 2 hour break can go when your baring your soul.  Im around for a bit more time,  would love some help and advice.  When I get chance and my head and heart are stronger I will explain more about my news that caused me to Flee.

Many thanks to those who have sent kind messages and have kept ‘liking’ me
