I’m a lady of that certain age, who just wishes to “play” with words and write a blog for no other reason than it’s fun. My husband and I came to live in the mountains of Portugal some 9 years ago and have never looked back since. From rather pressurised lives we now live at a more leisurely pace, enjoying popping down to the local village for coffee and oh yes the occasional brandy.

I also have another site that is about Photo Challenges and I only use photographs taken in Portugal to complete the challenge. If I have another photo that is more suitable and is taken somewhere else I use this blog. Please pop over and take a look its Paradise has Mosquitoes – Photo Challenges

  1. Thanks for subscribing to TheConqueringMom. As I was reading, I thought, “This woman ought to meet Tilly . . . ” Then I saw above, that you have, already. 🙂
    Everything here is really fun, and I wish I could do what you do, but I am better at enjoying humor than creating it. 🙂 Thanks, again — I’ll be back!

  2. You are living a life that I would love! How wonderful! Thanks SO much for following my blog. I’m relatively new at this, and every follow is a thrill. I’m following you right back 🙂 .

  3. One day… one day! We’ve had a home in the Algarve for the past 8 years but not able to make the jump yet. Flying into Porto soon to trip up the Douro. Where are you near to?

  4. I simply want to tell you that I am very new to weblog and certainly liked you’re web blog. Very likely I’m likely to bookmark your blog post . You definitely have very good article content. Thanks a bunch for sharing your web page.

  5. I love your days of the week dedicated to different themes. Not sure whether it’s your own idea, or one inspired by someone else, but I hadn’t come across it before. I’m just off to find out how to add a link to your blog to my own. You will be the first!
    I’m assuming that once I have done that, I will be able to see what you are up to at the click of the mouse 🙂

  6. I love blogs with a sense of humour and I didn’t even have to scroll past your title before I had a laugh – then it was on to your wonderful posts. Thanks so much for having a look at my blog – please do stop by again!

  8. Just wanted to let you know I have nominated you for the Super Sweet Blogging Award. I hope this will be welcome news for you. If you prefer not to accept the award, I certainly understand, but I hope you will visit the other nominees, and they will visit you, just the same. To see the other nominees and rules for accepting the award, please visit my post at http://wp.me/p2ekZU-Pt – All the best!

  9. Hello. I found your blog through one of the others I follow. I love the title of your blog and I could identify immediately. We moved from South Africa to Italy and were horrified to find that the mosquitoes are worse here (in Italy)! That said, we also live in a little village and love the slower pace of life. I’ll be popping in to see your stories now and then. Do come in and visit me too.

    • Haven’t been on for some time, my internet connection has been playing up so very much recently that it has taken the pleasure away from blogging. Fingers crossed that this will be sorted and I’ll be back to full strength again.
