7 October

Watched the film 27 Dresses again last night, not sure Tintin was too impressed! I had a really bad headache, and in anticipation of a bad night, tried to sleep in the pull down double bed. I was hot, then cold, felt really sick - and didn’t know what to do with myself. By about 3am think I finally managed to sleep. Bel, child birth is so much better than migraine/bad headache pain - at least you get something positive at the end of it!

Slow to get going this morning, was cold again. Felt sorry for the cats and kittens sleeping outside. Hopefully by the time it’s really cold they’ll be a bit bigger and stronger. Just some extra kitten pictures, sorry.

I drove for about an hour to:

Xinzo de Limia - free

Described as Aire in peaceful location behind residential apartments in building plots that were never developed - which suits us fine, as we thought it would be quiet.

Had a doing day. Couple of lots of washing, all done, dried quickly in the wind and sun. Tintin washed Dave. I baked a batch of chocolate brownies, and made a large quantity of spaghetti bolognese.

We saw a Mum with her young child and two dogs. Seemed to be having trouble with the bike, so Tintin went to assist! Needed to get his tools out to get the stabilizers off the bike - she was very thankful, and the little boy did really well - only a couple of lay down protests!

Most random thing was we saw a donkey just appear. He wandered around for ages, eating grass and trying the bamboo branches. No one came looking for him, and he looked cared for...

Nothing more to add for now, tomorrow - Portugal 🇵🇹!

After following Jason and Julie Buckley’s blog 'Ourtour' for years I just couldn’t get the name ‘Dave’ out of my head. So the Mobilvetta had to be another 'Dave’. More...
