What happened and what’s happening around here

13 Dec

Ok, let’s start with the celebrations for the 100th birthday of our local football team, that plays such a big part in my life considering my husband is a die-hard fan and has a subscription for the championship for about 30 years…..This was the presentation to the fans and to the press of the book written for the occasion, all the team history from the beginning, a nice saturday afternoon spent with people with the same passion, drinking to many more years of victories with the team owner, the technical staff and the players……

Obviously hubby got a copy of the book, and he already told me to be ready for the biggest celebration at the main theatre in town……………..

Keep Calm & Learn English……….this is the title of a nice initiative of a welsh guy living here. Every wednesday, from 7.30 to 9.00pm at a bar in the town center, he hosts an aperitif gathering for people to come together and speak english. You must be in groups of max 4 person, he distributes an assignment to each group, he delivers advices and help, he corrects the pronounce and grammar mistakes, the only rule is you must speak only in english. The bar provides the refreshments, sometimes after that there’s a live music event, and it’s really so much fun! I was there just once (for now) but my daughter is a regular with her english teacher and some friends. It’s a nice way to meet new people and improve your language!

And finally, the Christmas Tree is in town, up and bright!

    I don’t know anything about football and Mr. G. isn’t interested either. He prefers the Formular 1.
    Nice Christmas trees !
