2015 2016

One year ends, another begins. A time to reflect, a time to look ahead. My resolution once again is to get to grips with the Georgian Language. This was my resolution last year 2015 resolution and the year before and the year before that…

I have some ideas of how to go about learning a foreign language, I need to get away from the theory and start the practise even 40minutes a day, consistently, should reap results. It is important to communicate with people and I have the perfect opportunity living here in Tbilisi, Georgia.

2015 wasn’t an especially remarkable year. I continue to teach English to private students ranging from 4 to over 50 years old. We went twice to UK, the first time to see my mum and the second time to help her to move into an old people’s home (my brother, Danny, did most of the work). In 2016 we would like to go to Italy.

We visited some interesting places in Georgia, mostly on trips with my wife’s colleagues. Khevsureti was spectacular and involved a very long walk to the Abudelauri lakes.

I seem to spend far too much time on Facebook interacting with 801 friends, many of whom I’ve never met in real life.

The blog continues to get more views over 11 000 in 2015. Thank you for your views and comments.

The Diecast blog gets far more views but far less likes and has a different geographical spread of viewers.

I have been taking my granddaughter to school, a chore, I find to be quite pleasurable and we have a few photo opportunities en route. Ana is getting good at seeing interesting pictures and modelling accordingly.


Ana in the autumn leaves en route to school.

Happy New Year to all my viewers and followers, I hope 2016 brings you happiness and fulfilment.
