I opened my last post saying that months were flying past. Now it is years which have flown past. How did that happen? Life in Singapore was amazing but, as I neared my 64th birthday, the school, where I was so happily teaching, was finally to move to a new, bigger location. It was going to mean tons of commuting 6 days a week. I bit the bullet and decided to retire. For the last 2 years, I have been living in northern Spain near my daughter, my son-in-law and their 2 amazing bilingual kids. I have made lots of new friends and help some people with English and with playing piano but I do miss teaching Maths. I try hard with my Spanish but the only time I am with people who don’t speak English is at the hairdresser’s. My 6 grandkids are all totally amazing – now aged 7 to 13. We have sporting superstars, of course they are all very clever, and they are thoroughly wonderful people to be around. I spend as much time as I can with the family in Scotland as well as enjoying the better weather here in Spain. At some point, the 4th book just has to be written and I am making preparations to start it. I recently looked at the other 3 books and realised that it seems as if I wrote them a lifetime ago. I need to get my brain back into book-writing mode. My message in this Blog is – Watch This Space!
