The update named POPSICLES

“I Love to Love (But My Baby Loves to Dance, loves to dance…” Ahhhh, a bit of Tina Charles, brilliant innit 🙂

Evening popsicles, how are you on this Friday? Popsicles is probably a bad thing though because it´s going to get C-O-L-D over the weekend and into next week. I don´t know about you, but I´ve actually had long trousers on outside for two days!!! I know!!! I can see I´ll be putting a jumper on before the weekend´s out :O

Anyways, I thought I´d let you know what´s on this weekend in these local parts. Mamma Mia the musical is on NEXT weekend in Orihuela. Not the official one, but a great version by a youth group (and a lot cheaper), but I´ll tell you about that in the week.

Oh, did you see the last Escape Artist with David Tennant? What a great show. Such a change for something like that not to be dragged out and it even had a properly written ending, so refreshing. And, talking of endings, we bid a sad farewell to Chantelle in Holby this week. Such a shame. Only the Malik left to leave now, before we get more new peeps on the wards.
I also just remembered that it´s Children in Need tonight. There, I said it!!!

Right then, so, we´ve done the weather, we´ve done TV, the fist event I have to tell you about is on Saturday, because Jake Canuso, he who plays Mateo in ITV´s Benidorm, will be in the Flash Hotel in the morning, signing copies of his 2014 calendar. You can buy one, he will personally sign it, have a chat with you and you can have your photo taken. But, tomorrow, Saturday, is the LAST CHANCE THIS YEAR in Spain, so don´t miss out. It´s a 2014 calendar too and that´s only weeks away!!!

As for other events, I will post them below, but remember to pick up The Leader on Monday for next week´s guide, as well as all the latest news and sport from around the area. Very worrying story about mobile phones coming up, but I will tell you more during the weekend, possibly. It´ll be in the paper on Monday anyway 🙂

Oh, and a bit about the informative talk on the padron and residencia, as well as voting, plus a great update about the Royal British Legion in spain and there amazing fundraising efforts. www.theleader.info is the website for all your latest updates, to give that a plug. International Day of Tolerance tomorrow… Well, bugger that for a game of soldiers!!! Oh, I didn´t mention anything about the former mayor of Torrevieja!!! Never mind, maybe next time 🙂

Okey dokey then, the events list is coming up. Have a great weekend, look after those you consider to be special and look after yourself that little bit more.
Tarahhhhh… M.x
