So much to look forward to: Gibraltar, the Alhambra, an Anglo Spanish weekend, Cavalia and back to school.

Hi again,

It’s always great to have something to look forward to. That’s the spice of life really. Right now I am immersed in organising trips and encounters that will be part of my agenda in the next couple of months.

I have planned a trip at Easter and Eladio, my Father and I will be visiting Córdoba, Gibraltar and Granada and will also spend a few days at our apartment in Santa Pola. I have never been to Gibraltar but have always wanted to visit it. We will stay 2 nights at The Rock which is the hotel to stay at in Gib. In Córdoba we have booked a hotel right next to the Mezquita and look forward to dinner at the famous Caballo Rojo. In Granada, of course, we will be revisiting the Alhambra after many many years. The task of booking tickets has proved quite difficult but we will get to visit it I know.

At the end of March Amanda and Andy and her brother Simon and wife Jill will be visiting us and I know we are going to have a great Anglo Spanish weekend.

In April I have booked tickets for Eladio and I to see an amazing show called Cavalia. It’s a horse and music show made by the same people who organised Cirque du Soleil. It will only be in Madrid for a couple of weeks and as soon as I heard it was going to be here I quickly booked us some tickets.

The really big thing to look forward to on my agenda is a school reunion of my class at St. Joseph’s College Bradford coinciding with the school’s centenary this year. I am doing my utmost best to get together some of my closest friends from our class called Kappa (1969 – 1975) and go the Grand Dinner for past pupils and teachers at the Bankfield Hotel (now called Ramada) on 9th May as well as the open day on 10th May. So far it looks like I will be joined by Amanda, Brenda, Ellen, Helen and hopefully a few others. I am so much looking forward to seeing people like Helen King who I haven’t seen since I left school in 1975. It will be amazing to see each other again, reminisce about the past and also exchange news on how life has treated us since then. I would also love to see some of our old teachers but most of all, Miss Fair who was once our Geography teacher and then went on to be the Headmistress after our time. Who else will be there that I remember, I wonder?

So, as you can see, there is quite a lot to look forward to in the next 2 or 3 months.
