My book shelf holds a number of foreign language phrase books and I am always looking to add another and attempt to get further than page 1 (ordering a beer and a loaf of bread, although both useful to know).
I count myself very fortunate to have three young nieces who are always looking to keep their uncle active. Swimming, bowling and justdance are pretty high on their list of choices at the moment.
I've always had a small circle of friends who I feel very close to, rather than a wider group who I rarely see.
Feel free to contact me and, hopefully, I will be able to add you to that group.
