Hi Vero: Good to have you back. No, I'm not on Facebook. I think similar to Miranda, that there is a big danger to lose control of the information you give about yourself. But maybe I am simply too old fashioned...
At least I think that many people spend too much time in Facebook and lose the contact to the real world. It is a bit similar to playing too much video games.
I am currently in Gaucin which is close to Ronda, but you may know where exactly it is. We have rented a real beautiful house. The owner is an English lady who seems to need the money for keeping the house. We are the first persons to rent her house so we try to behave extra nice and careful.
There is a nice garden and a small pool which I haven't tried so far as I am still not allowed to swim because of my surgery. All in all I feel very good, but I am a bit annoyed that still I don't feel as 'normal' as before the surgery. Well, I simply have to wait, which is hard for me.
Good to hear about your job. What exactly have you been doing? Translating? Sorry about your cat. Was it already old or had it a heart problem?
Yesterday we have been surprised by the day off. The supermarkets have been closed (which we found out by standing in front of the closed door...
). So we had to eat in a restaurant which is not a bad alternative.
Hi Miranda: Gaucin (the place we currently stay) is not at the beach. It is about 35 minutes by car to the beach as Gaucin is in the mountain area of Southern Spain. It is really very nice at our house. We use the garden a lot, for breakfast, sunbathing, dinner... but also the house itself is wonderful. Rather new, with big bathrooms and a big kitchen. Everything is bright. We can hear cocks and donkeys (and the dogs of the neighbour). There are tiny streets just big enough for our rented mini cooper. Yes we use a lot of sun lotion...so the result is we don't get really tanned so far. But we have no sunburn either. The village is in the mountain so nearly all roads are rather steep...walking is not very romantic but exhausting.
announced her official retirement on February 14, 2008. What a sad day! I'm proud to be a Selestial and I admire Monica for her fighting spirit and her character.
The tennis world has lost one of the greatest players of all time! Have a wonderful post-tennis life!
, you will always be in my heart.
Thanks for all the great matches you gave us and for just being a wonderful person on and off court.
All the best for your future!
