Grumpy grumpy grumpygrumpygrumpygrumpy.
Meeting last night...only 2HOURS LONG!!!! and we accomplished almost nothing. OMG. I hate meetings.
That said...*whew*....after the seemingly endless and frustrating meeting I met the man and the girls at the cultural center where one of my language students, an accomplished sculptor was having an exhibition. We had a fantastic time. The sculptures are stunning, they will be touring in Europe this summer, and we ran into a bunch of folks we knew...*kiss kiss*, we may have found a lead on art teachers for the girls, we ran into some neighbours, and the lady with the greyhound that Chuck loves was there....she is wonderful. She is a linguist, she speaks Catalan, Castillian, German, English and Italian for sure, there may be more. We had a long and delightful conversation, actually several, and we are going to meet up with her, and 12 other dog owning families who are organising a lunch on the beach with the dogs....then finally she proposed that we help each other with language, we'll trade Catalan for English lessons. I am so HAPPY. She is a native speaker who has a fascination with grammar, the perfect teacher, and she just needs practice with oral English. She is at the stage where she sounds fluent with a light accent, but still confuses me sometimes....
It was so nice to realise how many people we knew and to *kiss kiss* our way through the party and then out the door.
Dog is not so well today again, d*mn it.
*grumble grumble grumble*
I had a nap and a big lunch, that seems to have helped the grumpiness.
The man went into BCN to see a show about the bombing of Barcelona, not a show for the kids, and not one I am desperate to see...so he went alone. He's cooking dinner, and hung the laundry up to dry. What a wonderful man.
I got an e-mail in Castillian from the on-line camera company that I couldn't decipher, so I copied it off to friends in town, who just e-mailed back to say that everything is fine, and it is being sent to the transportation people...maybe next week????? YEAH!!!!
