JOHN AND ANNE HAMMOND have burnt their boats. John has taken early retirement, they have sold their suburban bungalow and bought a cottage in southern Spain. Life will be perpetual sunshine and cheap... More > booze. But the realities of everyday living intrude. Encounters with builders, bureaucracy, odd-job men and their attempts to integrate into their new life are frustratingly humourous. John tries writing a best seller and his wife takes up painting again.

Our naive Brits sit on their terrace, the sun warm on their backs drinking wine and contemplating their new, palm-fringed swimming pool.
