Home Spanish home

I found a card in the lining of Carston’s hat – for an estate agents called 1stcallspanishhomes.com.

If anyone wants it back please get in touch.

Or if you want a Spanish home, get in touch with them.

56B: Magpie

Posted by Jonti Bloom on August 2, 2007

Always a sensitive film-maker and seeker of truth, I feel that I may be touching sensitive areas. And paying for quite a lot.

She’s washing that man right out of her car…and Ian’s in accident and emergency.

55: I’ve been Carston Whelk

Posted by Jonti Bloom on August 1, 2007

Appropriate karaoke songs for this moment:
– Should I stay or should I go?
– He ain’t heavy, he’s my brother
– Living on a prayer
– Stuck in the middle with you
– Anything by Chas and Dave

53: ‘King Prawn of Alicante’

Posted by Jonti Bloom on July 30, 2007

When I first started out as a documentary film maker I made a list of things I would never do even for a great story:
1. Put the lives of my immediate family in danger
2. The human trafficking of children
3. Have sex with a woman who marks less than 4/10
4. Black up in inner city areas
5. Sleep rough
6. Eat directly from a tin.
Looks like I’m going to have to revise the last two.

Can someone remind me what happened to the documentary film maker at the end of
Natural Born Killers?

Carstons knife

Carston has a knife with a pig on it. When he first landed in Spain he only
ate things he killed under his own steam, like dogs and seagulls and once a
horse when he was desperate. This is why he values luxury now, he says.

50: It’s like talking to myself

Posted by Jonti Bloom on July 27, 2007

I slip into a mockney accent whenever I talk to Carston. Saying ‘geezer’ occasionally is acceptable but he looked at me strange when I suggested we head down to the ‘rubber dub dub’.

Spot the difference

Posted by Dawn Jones on July 27, 2007

Dawn and her new brother Carston

A lover (all scented candles and knowing looks) once bought me a half coin necklace, keeping the other half for himself.

He said it was because we were like two halves of a whole. I thought this ridiculous as he made my gums bleed. But a gift’s a gift, so I kept schtumm.

Now I’ve met Carston I truly understand how similar two people can be. He’s absolutely fascinating.

Love & Light

Little luxuries

Posted by Ian Jones on July 27, 2007

Carston's lobster

I’ve never been into luxuries except at Christmas.

Carston likes treating people. A little dirty lady was begging on the beach and he gave her 20 Euros and a sun hat and some gum.

Later, I didn’t fancy a lobster, but I had three tiramisus.

A Thing or Two

Posted by Dawn Jones on July 26, 2007

Carston and Lara pose for a shot

Sitting in that hospital room way back when, gingerly eyeing the list for the first time, I saw Carston’s name and I just thought “Yes”.

Don’t ask me why. I often get a sense of a sibling from the name alone and I’ve never been wrong yet. Roger Logg – nice in small doses. Snowy Saltamentes – lovely but deceased. And so on.

Carston Whelk – knows a thing or two. I’ll stake my life on it.

Love & Light,

All wrapped up

Posted by Ian Jones on June 20, 2007

Trust me, I know what I'm doing

All these new brothers and sisters are starting to seem more real the longer I hold the list. Zzabur, Carston, Tina – what will they be like? Will they like me?

Also my camera seems good.

See my pictures.
