So this week I was poorly :-( Had a mini flu virus thingy, but got over it after a few days, which was good.
The weather went all horrible and British-like. Very windy and rainy. But by Friday, it was really hot and sunny again. Back to being summer!! Yay!! :-)
Saturday I went to Caceres for the day again, as this time it was the Christian youth of Extremadura day. It was really good. About 100 youth all met up and worshipped God together. We had singing and preaching, and one of my friends from History Makers sang. She has such an amazing voice. At lunch time I went with Madeleine and Alejandra to get lunch. In the shopping centre there were loads of umbrellas on the ceiling! It was pretty cool. The food was amazing. I had this massive burger, then an ice cream for lunch. I asked for a medium yet it was massive!! Definitely bigger than any large ice cream cone in the UK!! I couldn't eat it all, so happily gave it to Andrea. In the afternoon it was competition time. There were two prizes, one for dance and one for drama. The youth of my church did a dance, and came second. It was really good and I was in it. There is a video on youtube. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4errmMEaxPk&list=FLQeaBejsYC8peTSzxNh6-yg&index=2&feature=plpp_video Here is the link. :-) We came second. There were some amazing performances.
Sunday I went to church and was invited to lunch afterwards. It was very nice and interesting. I had spaghetti with chicken, boiled eggs, and CHIPS in it, and on the side was rice. It was quite nice.
I have a 5 day weekend, ending on Tuesday, and I'm loving it. So relaxed. Getting to chillax. Yay. :-)
I have seen some crazy hairstyles in Spain. Like one guy had really short hair, apart from this two tiny bits at the sides of his head, and the bits were in ponytails and one mini ponytail was longer than the other!! Very weird.
On Thursday I was invited to lunch with Holly at Abbey's house. Holly and Abbey are English and are also teachers here in Badajoz and Christians. I had lunch with Abbey's family, she has 2 young children, and her husband, as well as her younger brother who is staying with them for a while, and of course Holly. It was really nice, and I've been invited back. Aidan, Abbey's brother, cooked a lentil daal with homemade naan bread, it was very very yummy. Then we had homemade cupcakes, made by Abbey after. Also yummy. It was really nice, I had such a great time. :-)
Teaching is going well. I'm really loving it here. :-) I'm so glad God has called me to come here.
Friday was Rach's birthday! She's getting old hehe. I got to Skype her, so was very happy :-) It was weird not being with her on her birthday tho :-( I miss her and my family and friends loads. So grateful for Skype. :-) And on Friday I get to see my best friend again!! Yay!! :-D
