Michelle AKA Essex Bird "6 minutes on the Costa de


My name is Michelle Johnstone, and I'm coming to you from the Casa Del Sol in Spain. I am super excited to be here with you do my first broadcast. And I can't wait to start telling you all sorts of different things. Plus, I have some interviews lined up with some very interesting people. So stay tuned for that. But I thought I would start by introducing myself and giving you a little bit of my background. I started my life as a Playboy bunny

at the London Playboy Club in Mayfair, which I'm very proud of, but we'll get to that another time.


I do have an aka es exper that goes back through my years on the radio here in Spain for a variety of different stations. It also may give you a very big image as to where I hail from Essex Nah, London, I'm a towie transplant. Anyway, this year I had the pleasure of taking part in a popular TV show. That was a lot of fun, had an absolute scream doing it. And hopefully I'll be making an appearance on next season show and their Christmas special Fingers crossed, but I'll divulge that to you later as well. I own a small business here on the Costa del Sol. I provide the smoke awnings, lines, mosquito screens, as well as some other products. The name of my company is Ace of shades. Brilliant name, huh.


But I don't want to make this broadcast into commercial. What I want to do is bring you snippets of real life on the Casa Del Sol and the things that happen here when you're a resident. Now this may involve the odd celebrity that you might have seen on TV in the UK, that are currently here because they do come here and look about


After all people love theCosta del Sol. I've had a lot of strange jobs. I've lived in a variety of different places. And over time, I'll tell you about that. But today I want to tell you about something completely different. that's affecting a lot of us here in Spain, which I'm calling locked down lazy itis. Now, I think a lot of the ladies might relate to this one. locked down in Spain. It's been really tough. It's been 12 or 13 weeks now. And thankfully, Spain is now waking up slowly. So the girls and I decide as we're now allowed to do a girly lunch as you do.

I have lounged around for weeks in Pyjamas and clothes that I wouldn't be seen getting out on the street. And now I have to get ready for my first social engagement. So I pick out a nice comfortable summer dress because the weather here of course is lovely now For the last, you know, first seven weeks of isolation, it just peed down. But now the weather's lovely. Got my dress, and I turn on the shower. Oh my god, shock horror. How can a woman grow so much hair in so few weeks? I need a strimmer for my legs, let alone a razor. Anywhere manage the shower and the washing of the hair without any drama. And then I've got to put on makeup. Makeup. I haven't worn any in weeks.

Although I have to say the parking here has been amazing. But we've got to get back to this new normal life, whatever that may be. locked down lazy itis has set in for some people. And I'm not the only one who thinks so. And to quote a young girl named Dorothy Gale, there's no place like home. So until next time, keep positive. Stay safe and love from sunny Spain. Hasta llwego!
