A Touch Of The Balearics



I'm a 31C sort of guy if ever there was one so you won't catch me whingeing about this weather. Although I do wish we lived nearer a beach ('Aye, you can take the boy out of Devon but you can't...' etc).

I actually heard Jon Sa Trincha play this track at Salinas Beach in Ibiza, back when I had money (well, a debt-inducingly stupid limit on the credit card, at least) and the girls were small enough to smuggle on to aeroplanes free (hand luggage). I spent my 38th birthday at the bar there with them, quaffing cold San Miguel and throwing back battered calamari whilst back at the villa Mrs H did battle with the food poisoning she'd acquired from dodgy mussels at Cala D'Hort.

There's a swell mix of Jon's here if you're that way inclined. It very authentically captures his 'sound', I think.

School's out for summer!
 
I do hope that in due course someone will be going to the bar?

  1. A bit early for the bar Mr H. Although I do have hunners of quality Montravel Sec, Bergerac Red and Rose and two litres of export strength Bombay Sapphire, no Tanqueray on the boat alas to quaff.

    I will wait until we are out of "core hours".

    Well done that girl btw.

  2. Ah, ta. Yes, a tad early for the quaffing, though I may not last much beyond 4pm tbh.

    ReplyDelete
  3. 16:00 hrs, perfectly acceptable.

  5. School out today. Sun out and glorious. I'm off to the bar right now. Who's in?

  6. I've got to do the shopping and then I'm there.

  7. Core hours not ended yet! But get me a large gin for precisely 16:00 hrs.
    I very nearly left the One Dove 12" for you in the pub on Wednesday night SA rather than take it back up the road

    ReplyDelete
  8. Pint of bitter and a One Dove 12" please barkeep.

  9. The work laptop has now been switched off.

    Gin? Don't mind if I do.

    So what's happening? Apart from the fact that SA now has something like 3 months off.

    ReplyDelete
  10. I can't speak for the rest of the world but what's happening here is a very large tanqueray & tonic with a gurt chunk of lime and ice - cheers!

  12. Ha! Did you try the 'Manic Model' (tick box bottom right) ??

  13. Gurt is Devon for 'great' - as in 'A gurt big dollop of clotted cream'.

  14. every day is indeed a school day.

    Off to feel very very old tonight at a friend's son's friend's 21st!

  15. 6 weeks Drew, only 6 weeks. 3 months is a gurt exaggeration.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Bombay Sapphire is a poor substitute for Tanqueray.

    In other news Max has decided he wants to be a punk, he was listening to No Fun from the Winterland concert

    the kids have lined up that mumford cunt for the drive down so there is a dark side to every lining. as it were

    ReplyDelete
  19. 'A few light Peronis is all I ask' - poetry anto, pure poetry.

    (Sorry about the Mumfords).

    ReplyDelete
  20. I found those Mumfords infecting my hard drive earlier on. Suffice to say they have been dealt with.

    Have a good one Anto

  21. Don't know about this centigrade nonsense anymore but it's 100F today here in the fair city of Boston (now fair with burnt skin).

    ReplyDelete
  22. You and me in the summertime as I turn my white skin red

  23. Hello everybody. Supper's almost over. Beer's in the fridge. My daughter wants to play indoor tennis with me in the living room this evening. Really. Don't know if I (or the furniture) will survive. Looks like everything is gurt. Peroni's good but, speaking of italian beer, all you good folk should try Menabrea.
    Luca.

  24. I tan quite nicely actually. Too bloody hot to go outside though. Will be spending the evening at home with the wife and kids, a movie, pizza, and some some bottles of Old Peculiar I have in the fridge.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Drew saved my life tonight. My daughter is bursting bubbles like there's no tomorrow. And my wife too.

  26. What larks.

    Lee, I think 'I tan quite nicely actually' should be your new profile 'statement'.

  27. Hey up Gloria's getting her baps out for the boys in the snug

    ReplyDelete
  28. We don't sell to the under 12s and the only baps you'll see here is the cheese and pickle, so off out with you before I call your mother.

  29. Nipples like the wheel nuts on a scania

    The kids have agreed to listen to the masterworks series funk vols 1 & 2 for the drive which i thought was both democratic and tasteful of them.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Just in time!
    Wring me out and lay me across the bar.

    Been on me todd this week. Aaaah! Daughter gorn to Magaluf with 11 other Inbetweeners. I've only had 1 takeaway meal (not including lunches obv). Boddingtons can be a meal in itself I've found.
    Been to the Rugby League tonight with 18,000 others. Local derby. Hard work just cheering from the stands.

    Oh dear. The sweat down Glo's cleavage has dribbled into davy's gin. He'll never know.

    ReplyDelete
  31. 29C in Magaluf today. Poor souls, they must be freezing.

  32. Hi davy,

    Do you still have any interest in my blog (which I've just restored)? If so, here it is:

    Cheers,

  33. Ooops! Thanks for the link, davy, but I didn't realize the feed was off. If you want updates, I think you have to replace the link. ;-)

    Ta,
