JANUARY - Frankie's lil trip

Crikey January has almost flown by. The month has been almost continuous rain. The olive farmers are very happy, I’m sure, but everything is soaking and dirty, the land, the animals, and usually Alan and I too.

The month started with a visit from Frankie and her friend Vicky, a very sweet quiet girl. We had a lovely time together, exchanging Christmas prezzies and basically just enjoyed quality time together. We did have one trip into Cordoba, and we were gone so long, Alan nearly sent out a search party. It was nice to have a girly trip round the shops.... no offence Alan. Frankie went back to Brighton eager to start her new career as a dance teacher. She had been working in Marks and and Spencers but finally realised she didn't want to do that any more. I am so very proud of her as she has done it all on her own, without me there. She is teaching at a primary school in Eastbourne, so she will not stepping on anyone else’s toes in the Brighton area. Frankie is also helping with the competitors that used to dance with me, plus working with JP Omari and the Streetfunk Team also. She had over 40 in her first class, and I just knew she would do well as she practically 'carried' my classes for over a year, when I was not well! Ok I know I shouldn’t go on, but I am obviously proud of her.
