Why I have been away

    You may have wondered why I haven't been very active here lately and the simle answer is that I have a 'proper' job now that occupies a lot of my time. I am working weekdays as a classroom assistant at a school in Garachico and loving it. The children (all 160 of them) are wonderful as are the school and staff and my song Real Love and Communication was performed live in their recent Peace Day festival. One of the boys said it was "better than John Lennon's Imagine." With compliments like that of course I love the job!

    Thank you for your replies, Lady Guinevere, Patty, Benson and LondonGirl!

    Yes, I have at last found a job that pays that I truly like. Only trouble is it's only for the next four months so I am praying I can stay on somehow or find similar!

    Do they have any Temp Agencies where you are?  If they do you could go that route and have jobs lined up if there are any.

      Not that I know of and seeing as my Spanish isn't good I wouldn't have much chance at any if they did. Jobs go to Spanish speakers and people from the islands first and the unemployment figures are rising!

    Greetings and Blessings to you Bard!!

    Congratulations on your "dance with the children!!"

    I, too, have been a little scarce around HubPages!! Even though my heart is here, my attention has had to be elsewhere!!

    All the best, Earth Angel!!

    Congrats, Bard!  You have the best of both worlds, being able to do what you love and get paid for it.  Isn't that what Heaven must be?

    Congratulations must also be offered on your song being such a huge success.  Being touted as better than John Lennon is enormous praise.  Bravo!

    Enjoy.  Wishing you continued employment in your chosen profession!
