Passionate cook, a citizen of mediterranean europe, aspiring writer and City Slicka turned Spanish Chica. This blog includes chapters from my book City Slicka to Spanish Chica which describes the journey from living and working in London to meeting my Big Man, building a house in Spain with him, and taking on dogs, chickens and vegetables as part of my new life.
Our lives are now divided between our time Up the Mountain in Spain (where we grow our own food, rear hens for eggs and for eating and indulging my hobbies of cooking, writing, designing and sewing clothes) and time spent Down by the Sea in our beautiful adopted home town of Bexhill on Sea. Here we work restoring Victorian and Edwardian properties, enjoy walks on the beach with our dogs and buy and cook local foods.
The blog shares the highs and lows of what we get up to in our Andalucián mountain hideaway and our English seaside town.
I hope you enjoy what you read. Please do leave me a comment, I love to hear from people who pass by and stop for a while.
