Another busy week.

It’s been a busy week.

On Tuesday I went to see the friends in Franceses, go some exercise, and worked a bit on the Observatory book. Unfortunately when I got home, I found that I’d left my jacket behind (which was no big deal) with my phone in the pocket (which was rather more serious.)

On Wednesday I signed on with the tax office as self-employed, met the friends in Puntallana to retrieve my phone, and tried to sign on as self-employed at the Social Security office.  Only you need an appointment.  So I made an appointment.

Then I went home, had lunch, and gave the kitchen a much-needed scrub before a friend came round for tea.

And then I went down to Los Cancajos. I’m giving English classes again, in the offices of El Alisio, and I wanted to talk to the owner.

(If you’re interested, it’s mostly conversation, the classes are 8€ an hour, and we have groups for basic and intermediate level students.)

On Thursday I went to visit a friend on the other side of the island. Since she’s an hour’s drive away, I don’t see nearly enough of her.  That was fun.  Then after lunch I went to visit the friend with the month-old baby and took photos of Fiesta de la Cruz on the way home.

And this morning I was tour guiding.

When I got home, I sat down with a magazine and a G&T for half an hour.
