A Change Of Scenery

Productivity on this blog has been fairly high this year, a state of affairs which is mainly due to the fact that I've been a bit, er, underemployed. In addition to blogging I've had more time to enjoy Madrid, and to travel, and - of course - to waste time at home. I'm particularly good at the latter and I've enjoyed the opportunity to dedicate so much time to it. All of this is about to end, the inexplicable refusal of the Spanish state to pay me in return for withdrawing from the labour market means that I'm forced to take extreme measures and start working again. What's more, I'm going to be doing this in Germany, where freelancers like myself are a bit more common than here in Spain. I fly out this afternoon and its likely that for the next few weeks, and probably months, I will be spending most of my time there. I still intend to blog, there has to be some novelty value in an Englishman blogging about Spain from Germany! I'm less sure about the frequency of posts, depending as it does on how much free time and Internet access I have. We'll see.

Unemployment sucks when it begins and when it ends.

Could be worse I suppose - the good news for the future of this blog is that I have internet access in my hotel.

Good luck in Germany, hopefully you can keep it going, your blog is a pleasure to read.

Hope you can go back to los Madriles soon and keep us up to date with their shenanigans...pity a British newspaper cannot employ you as a correspondent...their (our)loss.
