Good news: We're going to get money back on the taxes here!!!!
I got up at the wee small invigorating hour of 6:30 this morning to sort more papers, and got my reward tonight by burning the ones we don't need.
I'm all temporarily deaf again, due to ear wax I think.
We are part of the clan in some quarters it seems, locals, so to speak., We, totally by accident, went into our favourite local restaurant for lunch, REALLY late, because the electrician was at the house with the contractor till 3pm. Went in half way STARVED, as I didn't get a snack at 11 today as I had to run to Eldest's school for her book list, that they don't hand out till the last day, when only the kids who have to resit exams to maybe pass them come....Eldest couldn't go, she was at the dentist's yesterday and had to get her mouth frozen. Then she went to eat and took a big chaw out of her lip. Big fat inflamed and nasty looking this morning. Wow, that was a run on sentence wasn't it.
Note to self, sleep more.
We went in there, and a BIG boo hoo they are closing!!!!! She's only worked there for 50 years...seems young no?
They took our photo, we wrote a letter, service was crazy slow, and it was a delight. Seems we're regulars.
You know you're in Spain when your eleven year old comes home at 11pm.
Eldest says my posts are getting boring lately, supported by dropping readership and comments....sorry folks, crazy busy leads to crappy posts....what can I do. I'll work on it, m'kay?
We had every. single. single. piece. of. paper they asked for the taxes. Every last one. I seem to be getting the hang of it now, bring everything you might need, and more.
Youngest is worried, because two of there three friends at school are going to switch schools next year. UH OH.
I'm worried too.
Chuck isn't. He doesn't get it. He just knows his hip is itchy.
Good news from Eldest's school, her partial reading list....in Catalan, John Wyndam The Day of the Triffids, Gerald Durrell's My Family and Other Animals and something else, I can't remember what. In Spanish, Laura Esquivel's Con Agua per Chocolate, or Like Water for Chocolate. Plus something else reputed to be dull.
I am in the midst or enrolling both kids in on-line English courses.....hope that works out well.
I seem to be destined to do five canvases a day on the weekend and none in the week. :-(
Got a little hate on for the electrician who spray painted all over parts of my house that are NOT going to be painted. I am not too happy at all.
We are thinking of letting the guys work on the house in August when we aren't there. I am feeling antsy, especially after today's spray paint debacle.
Chuck now has an itchy neck.
Can you say stream of consciousness? Seems I can.
I still can't hear out of my left ear either.
Chuck is sending me telepathic messages that I should drop everything and scratch his stomach.
Maybe I should.
Photos tomorrow, promise.
