"We used Paul to help us organise a wedding in Ronda for my English daughter and Scottish son-in-law. It was a very tricky matter, because it is not normal for foreigners to marry in the town. Nevertheless, we persevered and Paul did all the interpreting, talking to officials and making phone calls on our behalf. Needless to say, the wedding went perfectly, with a large part of the thanks going to Paul."

Champagne, chips and chatter PDF
Thursday, 15 April 2010 00:00

 altA new social phenomenon was invented this week in our village. Champagne, chips and chatter!

When I announced I was off to Ronda for a night out, she “retaliated” with:

OK, I’ll invite J round for chips then. 

And a bottle or two of cava too, I’ll be bound, said I.  And a fair bit of nattering, too!

And then it suddenly came to me in a flash of alliterative inspiration - champagne, chips and chatter.

When I got back the next day, there was the evidence: two empty cava bottles, and a bag of potato peelings.  They had enjoyed a great natter, too, by all accounts, as they over-indulged on things that are bad for you.

So, now I know that if I’m not around for any reason, the girls will be getting together for a calorie-fest.  Sounds a bit like midnight feasts in the dorm, doesn't it? (see Angela Brazil, et al).
