Time to Padle!

sunny 32 °C

So this week has been fun. :-D After my struggle with the food shopping, TEN bruises appeared on my arms and shoulders. TEN!! Couldn't believe how mean shopping could be to me :-(

Work this week has been good. Enjoying it and seeing some progress in my students. Yay! :-D

Wednesday was funny. I came home only to find my key wouldn't turn in the lock in the front door!! :-S So I buzzed Johana but she didnt answer. Luckily someone in the first flat heard me struggling with the door so let me in. Turns out the lock is broken so they try not to ever shut the front door to the block of flats. Next, my key wouldn't turn in the door to the flat. So I started to panic that I was in the wrong block of flats. AGAIN! I even went out and had a look at the flats and the windows to make sure I was in the right building. Finally Johana let me in. Turns out she forgot I was coming back late cos of work, and was used to locking the door after she got in, so locked me out! Twas quite funny. And actually not my fault for once that I struggled with getting in. Yay!!

Saturday was an amazing day. I spent the whole day in Merida with Victor, and Paola, Aljendhra and their family. They are some of the people I met at History Makers, and Victor is Johana's brother, and he also went to History Makers. THey showed me round the sights, and the parks and we had a lot of fun and took some groovy photos. :-) Really enjoyed myself. Then we finished the day with yoghurt ice cream sunday thing. Was really yummy. I had chocolate sauce, caramel sauce, coloured stars and chocolate swirls on mine. mmmmmmm. And you get to keep the cups :-)

Today I played padle. It's a Spanish game that is a sort of cross between tennis and squash. It's really fun. I had such a good time. And.... I WON!! yay!! Me and Ana were a team and we won 6 - 2!! :-D Celebration time!! :-D

On Wednesday it's a national holiday. No idea why, but will find out soon I'm sure. :-) I'm being taken to Portugal for the day, as its only 7km away. And I saw Portugal from the road today, tis very close. :-)

I'm really enjoying myself, and absolutely loving Spain.

I will put some pictures up soon :-)

Hopefully I will be starting Spanish lessons tomorrow, so that will be good, and very helpful. :-) I am picking up some Spanish, and people are actually impressed with how quickly I'm picking up Spanish. Yay!

And it's still really hot here!! It's starting to get a bit chilly in the evenings, but it's not that bad. Loving it. This amazing weather is expected to last till November!! Oh yeah! Gutted everyong in England. Enjoy your winter :-P

Sarah, so glad you're settling in well & having a fabby time. Had to giggle, thought at first "padle" was a spelling typo til I read the blog - sounds like fun!

Muy bueno!!
Hope you've learnt the most important spanish phrase - "dos cervesas, por favor" - 2 beers please lol!

Keeping you in my prayers xx
