Client Testimonials

“I first contacted Paul because we needed an interpreter to help resolve an issue at Sevillana, the electricity company. He was very efficient and effective and the problem was quickly solved. I have since used Paul in other official settings, including my bank, Unicaja, the Provincial Payments Office and the Administrator of our Community of Owners. Excellent value for money.”

'Goodnight , sleep tight!' PDF
Monday, 21 June 2010 00:00
 

The origin of the phrase 'Goodnight , sleep tight!' is fascinating. 

Apparently in Shakespeare's time, mattresses were secured on bed frames by ropes. When you pulled on the ropes, the mattress tightened, making the bed firmer to sleep on.

Hence the phrase...'Goodnight , sleep tight!'
