Default From Paella to Porridge

From Paella to Porridge Is the fifth in Peter's series of humour laced books set in Mallorca.

From Paella to Porridge
A Farewell to Mallorca and a Scottish Adventure
Peter Kerr
ISBN : 1 84024 506 9
7.99 Paperback
Publication Date: May, 2006
129 x 198 mm, 320 pages
The Kerr family say goodbye to their orange farm in Mallorca, and put it up for sale after three years of hard work. The Mallorcan experience comes to an end with a farewell fiesta for neighbours and friends, full of comic shenanigans but tinged with sadness. But now begins the return-to-Scotland adventure, and what a cultural shock is in store. Welcomed back by family, the Kerrs make plans to start a deer farm on a remote hillside, the beginning of a period of challenges and change, of buying and restoring houses in the lovely Scottish countryside. Meanwhile, Peter explores Scotland with fresh eyes, visiting such places as the 'Biarritz of the North' where Robert Louis Stevenson used to holiday, and giving us an insider's view of the world-famous Edinburgh Military Tattoo. There's never a dull moment in the Kerr household.

Ok Jane who's going to be first to read this one Is this the last in the Mallorca series?

Take care.

Oooh, thanks for that Rob!

I didn't know he had a new book out! And I bought three new books in Waterstones on Saturday as well!

I will go and hunt the book down and have a good read.

I'm re-reading one of my other books just now but will maybe buy a signed copy if I manage to see him on Thursday night.
Take care.
