It has been a VERY long time since my last blog post. During this time I have been developing my interests here in Spain and settling in to the new environment. (Did I say I changed my hair colour to red last year?)
I have also been busy being a blog editor for the Axarquia Garden Club website over this period.
Before I moved the blog onto a WordPress platform I also edited the website on a Google blogger platform.
And as of today I am also blog editor for a local young Golf Professional Borja Cabello, who my husband Tom and I are helping to develop his professional golfing career. It’s tough to make your way in a new career without a sound financial backing, and we are hoping Borja can develop more sponsors and shareholders to support him during 2016.
Why not have a look at his website here Borja Cabello. And please follow the link there to have a look at his Facebook page and “Like” his page
Funnily enough it has been more interesting and rewarding supporting both these ventures than promoting my own website.
Since coming to Spain I have pretty much retired from my formal coaching business, preferring to work in a voluntary / mentoring capacity.
I have taken opportunities to develop my personal and spiritual interests, and this is the reason for changing the name of this blog to Inspiracion y la Luz. (Inspiration and Light) and I have also changed the name of my Facebook page to Inpiration and Light. The Facebook link on the website sidebar seems to have broken since the name change. Something to have a look at ….
In February we returned briefly to the UK to visit Tom’s sister who was, sadly, to lose her fight against Cancer. The experience of spending time at her bedside during her last few days was very profound for me. Also so terribly sad.
That’s not to say that our life in Spain has been easy. Any new country presents challenges, and we have faced very many in our process of integrating as Spanish residents. Things are not as clear cut here as in the UK when it comes to local planning legislation and land law, and we have encountered some major difficulties. That said, we have also benefitted from the support of our new English, German and Spanish friends. I am not saying I could write a book – it would be more of a horror story – and we are still not out of the woods. But I live in hope that an end to these worries may soon be in sight.
