Iâ€™ve spent a really relaxing day again today. I know Iâ€™ll be running around for the next 16 days with Carol and Charlie but thatâ€™s OK. Iâ€™m quite happy to do that. Today I was just making the beds, going out and getting some groceries and of course, I forgot and stuff so Iâ€™m waiting till 3 PM when the local grocery store opens and then Iâ€™ll get the cheese and whatever else I forgotten.
Charlie and Carole are just waiting for the 4 PM bus in Lisbon. They arrived an hour later by plane than scheduled so Iâ€™ll have to find out about that. Flying seems to be on a totally different schedule than pre-pandemic times. When they get here Iâ€™ll pick them up but I should have dinner ready. I think Iâ€™m going to make some kind of a chicken with curry and potatoes and vegetables. . That sounds good to me and Iâ€™m sure theyâ€™ll like it. I have plenty of wine. I have some port- ruby in tawny. I have some beer and that clear liquid that the old men around here seem to like. And I seem to have got attracted to it too ha ha ha ha.
I need a kind of chicken marsala, according to my own recipe and whatever vegetables I needed to use. I had a pre-taste so I donâ€™t poison my Goss. Even if I say so myself, itâ€™s damn good.
We have new neighbours a couple from north of Porto and there are three-year-old daughter. LuÃs doesnâ€™t seem to have any trouble renting out his place. Itâ€™s a good location for a holiday for sure.
Oh, I already planned to be back here for March. Iâ€™m not sure whether Iâ€™ll do a second month but you never know. Itâ€™s amazing how the time flies and once youâ€™re comfortable, itâ€™s like being home again.
The bus is coming in in a few minutes, but I thought Iâ€™d stop by my favourite Indian restaurant Shaan, and get three vegetable samosas. Carol and Charlie are vegetarianâ€˜s. Generally even though tonight theyâ€™re gonna eat a bit of chicken in their chicken Marcella. The samosas they have here are pricier than I usually get in Scarborough. However, the crust is fabulous whatever they do and making it it is the best Iâ€™ve ever tasted. And you know me I love food.
The bus here! Yay!!!
