Long Time No Blog!

Frankly I do not have a real excuse for this protracted gap in posting - since our Christmas and New Year stay in Spain I have been concentrating on building up additional work projects and everything else has been put to one side. In these extremely difficult economic times and with our Spanish property to finance we needed to ensure finances for the coming few months. Anyhow, hooray I have had several new projects commissioned and the new year is looking much healthier.

I shall try to catch up with my blog reading soon too.

Highlights since my last posting have been a great time in Spain with beautiful weather and good times with friends, a "Sleepover" with our youngest two grandchildren last Friday where I discovered I could still climb up and sleep in a top bunk bed [not bad eh?] and the start of my work with Volunteer Reading Help.

With VRH I have been assigned to work at a local school with three 9 year boys who are "reluctant readers" and I am hoping to make real progress over the next few weeks - I'll keep you informed.


  1. I predict you will make real progress over the next few weeks in how to deal with 9-year-old boys.

  2. I used to teach Dyslexic children and it was very rewarding. Quite a few of them stay in touch even now. Good luck with the VRH - bet you enjoy it.
    many thanks for dropping by and commenting too on my last posts. BT have finally come up trumps but it is a long of course that you can read on my blog:)
    Nice to have you back.
