    Yeah, but Openreach rents the vans off BT Fleet. It's been lying for 8 weeks doing nowt and I think the rental is £300-400/month. So it's going back to fleet until I get back. Shame really 'cos that van was brand new and I'll end up with some shitty piece of crap near the end of it's days!

    looking at apartments for next year. Anyone know what the Los Diamantes complex is like in Los Cris? Am also looking at a place in Playa de La Arena, run by a friend of Kev's.

    Yep, we stayed at Los Diamantes Fase II. It was excellent! Only used it for sleeping/washing etc and ate out. Ours was a private let again but it was a fantastic place, the only downside was the walk back up the hill at night. It used to have it's own wee bar called Bellinis but it was bsasically a hole in the wall. Not too far to the El Mirador strip of bars and restaurants, and from there not too far to the beach areas.

    Travelling a 3.5 hour round trip to my brother's house. Things have taken a turn for the worse re: my parent's. They need full time care , either in a nursing home or full time carer in their own home. My mum especially is deteriorating rapidly ( my dad not too bad actually, though he'll do/follow whatever she says). Legally, as  things stand, we cannot intervene as the doctors have said both have mental capacity ( probably not true but without the doctors saying this, we ( brother and I) cannot get "enduring power of attorney" over them , and we would have to go in front of a judge with all kinds of legal and medical documents, to have them made "ward of court". We need to knock our heads together to try to bring this to a head soon. My dad's car has no NCT (M.O.T.), so we think we will let the police know this and hopefully, they'll impound the thing. Its a horrible thing to do, essentially taking their independence away from them, but I don't believe we have any other choice. My brother thinks it will give us the excuse to move to full time care. I'm just worried that he'll knock down somebody ( God forbid a child!). My brother thinks this is the best way forward, but every move we have made so far, has led to another set of problems and I don't believe this one will be any different. We were told that on average, a person diagnosed with Alzheimer's lives for 4 years. My dad was diagnosed 5 years ago and the progression is very slow. My mum on the other hand is 8 months in, and the progression is rapid. I found out that my friend's dad had it for 17 years before he died and that he only became unmanageable for the last 6 months. Took a hell of a toll on his family though, especially his wife. What are you doing today?? - Page 38 1498946960

    And another worry, is that the full time care, either in a nursing home or in their own house, has to be paid for. We're looking at @ 1200 euro a week. Madness!!

    This year they are doing soul tributes in the main venue, I shall swerve that, get enough in Sundowners........ Others places have rock, disco/techno shite, may have a look see if any young totty there. I like noise, and piss heads. I suspect the rock venue will be most popular. Apparently I get 7m X 7m camping area for the van. Dont say if its flat ground.  What are you doing today?? - Page 38 2419626307 I shall take the metal ramps which of course move along if you try and drive up them just in case. I hear the Ted Heath Orchestra has been cancelled.  What are you doing today?? - Page 38 3025408739

    Oh, forgot. Saw an Oom pah pah band in the main square at Puerto de la Cruz once. Much slapping of leather. Sat down amongst the Germans, felt quite at home being of Germanic appearance. Sometimes Fritz would make a comment, Yah, goot I would say.....  What are you doing today?? - Page 38 3025408739
