Your afternoons and evenings are spent running around from activity to event and driving from one location to another. Sometimes you need to have a quick meal out, as there just isn’t enough time to cook a meal at home. Once you arrive home, it is time to do a bit of cleaning, have the kids finish their homework, and have a little bit of time together as a family. Time to go to bed and start it all again tomorrow.

It looks like Christmas 2018 is taking us back to one of our most magical Christmas trips. With dazzling lights in every direction, stunning scenery, a great city vibe, Christmas Markets, crepes, hot chocolate and baguettes too!
Each Autumn our consulting and blogging takes a little siesta, so Alan and I take full advantage of this time to work on projects and improve our Spanish. This time we tried experiential learning Spanish mixed with some traditional classroom time. Yep, we are taking the slow road to fluency, but at least we are still on that road! To top it all off, we know we are better than we were last year!
