Well the Spanish managed what we have sometimes failed to do - beat the Germans!! It was the right result - Spain have been unbeaten, scored 12 goals, only conceded 3 and won a penalty shoot out - what a 3 weeks we have had!! Last night the centre of Torrevieja was a sea of red football shirted, flag waving very noisy happy people!

It was a late noisy night as the Spanish went through against the Italians on penalties - Fabregas scored the winning penalty which sent the town crazy with cars and motor bikes racing around sounding their horns and waving the Spanish flag. Now we wait for Thursdays semi final against the Russians - the passion is rising as is the temperature! My expat blog features the big win................. http://www.thexpat.com/blog/category/rob-innis/

Yes at long last the sun has started to shine reliably here (Costa Blanca) at last! It must be making the sparrows hungry because they are still in the Fig Tree sorry but to fully understand that comment please visit:
I read this blog to the Torrevieja Writers Circle this morning and it was greeted with much amusement and positive feedback including
`Your writing is getting warmer´ which is praise indeed (they can be a tough lot to please and blogs are still a bit socially unacceptable in published writers circles)but I don't care - we live in a brave new world!

I have added the Costa Blanca news (direct from the Valencian Tourist site) onto this blog - this will give you even more local colour!! Press release.............I am working on an exciting new idea with The Inland Magazine - the designer as we speak (or read) is busy laying out the contents for the new page - Robs Bits and Bobs - this will boost circulation! PS Other projects also in the pipeline. Watch this blog! Another big Euro 2008 match tonight: SPAIN vs SWEDEN - Viva España!

Having had a rejection (see below) for being to topical it seems that my Expat Spain blog this week has hit the spot - I had a positive comment from a reader and an offer from the editor to include the content in next months magazine.

The major European football tournament, joint-hosted by Switzerland and Austria, kicks off this weekend. Guess who is missing - all of the GB countries - but Spain have high hopes of success this time and most Expats will be cheering on their adopted country.
