The update named SUNSET

I read a really interesting news article in a magazine this week, but I´m not going to tell you about it because it´s WEEKEND… Yay, it´s here again… Hang on, let me do a little jig…

I´m back in the room…

Good evening my little piece of precious metal, how are you? It is an odd one this week because it´s the last weekend in October, so next week we get Halloween, then the official countdown to Chrimbo begins. It´s also my mother´s birthday, so happy birthday MUM. 70 years of putting up with me!!! (Oh, maybe I shouldn´t have mentioned the number).

Oh, I bought some super awesome new booties in Alcampo, only a fiver. They´d be perfect if I actually had 2 left feet!!! No problem though, I went back and bought two right feet ones too, so now I have two pairs J

azimuth:0.000000||elevation:0.000000||horizon:0.000000I went taking sunset pictures at the salt lakes in Torrevieja the other day, which is why I posted one as the image leading this post, the Update Names sunset. You may have already seen some on Instagram though! Oh well!!!

Anyhoose, what is going on? Well, firstly, I will tell you about Saturday. I am with Angela and Michelle on Exite Radio for Simply Small Talk, this week talking about some very important news stories, such as the terrorists being released from prison and the fact that a former mayor of Torrevieja may be sent to jail, unless he convinces the judge that he is a little old to do time at 65! Yes, it could happen!!! So, that´s all from 12:00 on Saturday, then Kevin takes over from 2 with Sports Zone. Oh, and not forgetting an honourable mention for my little mate, Spongebob Squarepants!

Oh, talking of weekends, don´t forget to put your clock back on Saturday night! That means we all get an hour extra in bed from Sunday, which is nice. It also means lighter mornings, but darker nights of course, and you can read more about that in The Leader on Monday.

Lots going on next week too, all of which will be in The Leader, I´ll tell you about on Exite Radio, and I´ll probably post during the course of the week too. Ah, but, I also just remembered, there is great news from the Spanish property and money market. Things are looking up. Spain is out of recession, officially, and Spanish property is all the rage for investors again, so if you´re looking to buy, do it NOW, because prices will be creeping up again, especially on the Costa Blanca. Again, I will give you more about this next week, or check out a couple of the articles I published already on www.theleader.info.

Right then, back to events. I will give you the weather overview in a moment, but firstly, here is the “What´s On Guide”, from Exite Radio…
