Dinner With Friends & Family
17 July 2012 @ 20:22
Lovely evening yesterday, friends and family around for dinner. Lots of laughter and daft stories. Our good friend Kay Churchill was there, she heads up The English Academy in Arroyo de la Miel. This school teaches English to mainly Spanish people, and is very successful, and so it should be, all her staff are highly trained, dedicated, and certificated. They make learning simple and fun.
Sad today, as I took my son and his lady to the airport to fly home. He had a good break I think, and needed it. Heading up more than one company takes its toll, and just lazing around in the sun doing pretty much nothing was a good way for him to unwind and recharge the preverbials.
The Olympic chaos aka G4S continues. How the boss has the brass neck to stay in his job is beyond me.
We now hear that HSBC have been laundering drug money for many years. The banking industry appears to have become a Mafia type criminal bunch, but one where people only lose their jobs, and nothing else, when found out. I think that Bob Diamond is lucky not to be facing criminal charges, and maybe others are too. Even maybe some in the Bank of England. What kind of message does all this sleaze send to our young people?
Saw an Inmobiliaria ad today that said. "Quality homes wanted for ten ants". Reminds me of when Peter Noone was paged at JFK airport, "Would Mr No One please pick up a pager phone"
"The Saturday Oath" got a good few hours worth this afternoon. We're off out all day tomorrow so glad I got stuck in today.
My son asked me to name two English football teams with a swear word in their name, I got Arsenal, then gave up. His solution for the other one was 'Bloody Ipswich'. I know there is another one but please, children may read this !!
