Vanishing Time

I wonder where the week went?

I know I gave my nieces English classes on Monday and Tuesday. But that’s only an hour a go – it hardly fills up the day. And I did some work on the translation – again that would account for perhaps another hour.

I know where Wednesday went. One of my friends in Franceses needed to go to the doctor, so I went along to translate. It’s just over an hour’s drive to get there, and of course we had to wait quite a while. So we stayed for lunch, and they we went for a swim at the Fajana, where they have salt-water swimming pools. It was very nice.

And on Thursday I was guiding up at the Roque again.

So I suppose it’s only two days that vanished. But I’d love to get them back!
