…but since our last post we have had rather a lot on, including a funeral of a very young lady, me having the Norovirus and a bout of passing out known as the Vegus Reflex, Chris attending court over a car accident which happened four years ago (thankfully we won), and of course Christmas and New Year festivities!
Our plans to move to Spain have also run slightly aground, but after having a good talk with ourselves I think we are back on track.
We returned to Spain in February for 9 days took Chris’ brother Tony with us. My fantasy is that we will be offered a job and accommodation and never come back. Thank goodness for Chris and his rational thinking.
We still have a bit to do to get our new business venture under-way – including completing our website and compiling a new database of private landlords. We are also waiting to hear about a start-up loan to help fund a mail-out. We haven’t had much luck either finding beginners Spanish course but are using lots of free on-line sites and Suenos, a BBC book and CD programme.
My CELTA course starts in September 2013 and I’m also hoping to enrol on an OU Beginners Spanish course in October http://www3.open.ac.uk/study/undergraduate/course/l194.htm.
Chris has also set me a gentle challenge of blogging in Spanish – so watch this space.
