My life in Murcia

This blog is about my daily working life in Murcia, Spain. I run a small snagging company, have 1 husband, 2 small children and 2 large Great Dane dogs, so life can be a little hectic!!!

Update on living in Murcia
19 November 2008 @ 13:27

Having set up my blog several months ago I am only now getting the chance to post anything!!! What with the summer holidays and the kids off from school and having a very busy time working hard running the snagging company I never got the chance to spend blogging. Anyway I thought I would start trying to post on a regular basis.

The weather in Murcia has been a little wet over the last few weeks but we are now hopefully through the worst of it and the lovely sunshine has returned. The kids are enjoying school which is great but I seem to spend all weekend rushing from ballet dancing to horse riding and the numerous birthday parties they get invited too. I spent last Saturday night at an indoor ball park surrounded by 200 screaming chilren!! I remember the days when I would spend my Saturday nights in a wine bar and good adult company!!! Anyway such is family life.

We are still thoroughly enjoying our time in Spain and in January our family will grow as my husbands parents will be moving here from Swaziland, where they have lived for the last 5 years. I am not sure what they will make of the local Spanish fisherman taking their early morning beers in the bars of Los Nietos or my mothers mad next door neighbour with wild hair and a very bad case of BO, but hopefully they will learn to love it as we do.

I have restarted my Spanish lessons. This is the fourth time I have joined a course in September!!! I have previously lasted about 6 weeks and then found excuses not to continue, but this time I am trying to stick it out. It is getting very embarrassing sending in my 4 year old to ask questions in shops, and both children are now discussing topics in Spanish which I cannot understand. I am sure they are plotting some sort or rebellion judging by the grins on their faces. So hopefully in the next few months I will be expert and able to communicate with all the Spanish locals.

I have just had a phone call to inform me that John Sargeant has walked out of Strictly Come Dancing!! I am devastated as this is the one programme I try to watch on TV. I was hoping he would eventually win the show and the British public would let the judges know what they thought of the rude and insensitive comments they have made. Always a lover of the underdog I felt he added another dimension to the show and provided great entertainment.

Well must get back to work have just seen a few e-mails arrive so better get to it.

Have a great weekend.

We live in N Ireland. i would love to be able to contact someone in the same position in los Nietos. I do not speak spanish and I don't know any of the neighbours, do you know anyone living on the front line of the sea in Los Nietos that I would be able to contact?
