On a recent walk we witnessed how the early October rains had helped the autumn harvest along…

Mike decided to get up close and personal with the bees too. I prefer to keep my distance!

It really is a lovely time of year here.  Everything is looking greener and whilst the sun is still shining, the cooler temperatures are a relief.  The dogs are loving it!

What’s new?

Crikey!  The last couple of months have been a bit busy, hence the lack of posts.

I’m pleased to say that I passed the proofreading course with flying colours! So, if you need anything proofreading, anything at all, get in touch to see what I can do for you. I have also been content editing on a project for an international English language teaching organization whilst continuing to develop resources for an online teaching website.

I’ve always thrived under pressure. So this is me in my element!

At the beginning of October, our area of Spain experienced a ‘gota fria’ (literal translation: a cold drop) which is violently wet stormy conditions often with hail.  Due to our elevation, whilst we experienced the wind, rain and hail, it wasn’t, fortunately, particularly destructive. Other, more coastal areas, were not so lucky. One Facebook feed showed a whole swimming pool floating down the street of a local town! Over the last few days though, the sun has reappeared and, hopefully, will stay for more than awhile.
