From Sequins to Sunshine,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: From Sequins to Sunshine - Year One (Lorna's Life in Spain Book 1) (Kindle Edition)
You had me hooked from the start Lorna as it starts in Brighton, where I did my Nurse Training from 1972 to 1974!!!
The trials and tribulations of moving to Spain were so familiar!!! Although we bought an old farmhouse which when we saw it what is now the lounge was full of goats so couldn't physically see most of the inside!!!!
I really enjoyed it being from a women's point of view too! The distance from children can be a problem at time plus the grandchildren of course!
I do think you are quite brave to live "off - grid" and with spring water! That is one thing I was adamant about we had to have mains electric and water! We had to wait to have electric upgraded which took a few months and water took 6 months though I used to fill the aquaroll for our caravan from a neighbours tap!!!We celebrated when we got our first flush toilet!!!!Anyway brilliant book, hope you've got more up your sleeve!!!

Thank you Judith for such a fantastic review. Yes definitly the hardest part for us expats is missing the family. I loved your excitement at your flushing toilet. I felt the same way when we chanced getting a washine machine, after 4 months.... and it worked! Lorna xx
