Default Obsessed!

I have developed a routine when back in the UK which my wife claims is bordering on obsession. As soon as I am up and about in the morning I first check the seemallorca.com webcam for P.P.; then to the AEMET website to view the current forecast. Next it is this forum for any new postings; a quick look through the Majorcan Daily Bulletin and then the TripAdvisor Mallorca Forum. On really quiet days I will also 'go round the island' via all the webcams on Livecam Pro or catch up with the excellent AlcudiaPollensa blogspot.

Oddly enough when I am in P.P. I only bother with the weather forecasts!

Does anyone else have a similar obsession or is it just me?

lol, just about the same for me, but including all the facebook pages on Pollensa, and Majorca, including friends pages over there as well, and the Pais FB, DB and ultima Hora pages. Also all the estate agents FB pages, not forgetting all the various restaurants we have visited in PP and around the island. also just checked all the webcams and sat and watched a few planes in and out, and then maybe try to fit some work in too!!

I went through this, I thought I was cured but now realise I am just in remission and trying not to look at webcams of blue skies and sandy beaches.

I must "own up" to doing all of the above, as well as looking at the website of where we are going in 2017 every day - but I thought that, at our age, that this was ""normal""!!!! I reckon that I will soon be able to recall some of the menus "Word Perfect"!!

I have shown these postings to my wife and now convinced her that in fact my behaviour is perfectly normal, so she can cancel the appointment with a psychiatrist.
