Not all Scots are mad but I am

Just three days till Christmas and the shops are still quiet here in Spain. It’s still nice and sunny and temperatures still at 22 degrees. Just not Christmas at all. You would thik that after 8 years here we would be used to it, but not at all. Last year we were in Ireland and stuck in Dublin airport due to snow going to Glasgow for Christmas. This year we are staying in Spain and wishing we were in Scotland, but thanks to Ryanair and the cutbacks we could not go.

We were at the last Spanish lesson before Christmas and we all had to take something from our country to eat or drink. We took shortbread and Bars Irn Bru traditions from Scotland, the German student brought an assortment of cakes and hot wine from a flask, the Belgiun students had Champaign, the English had cakes and the Spanish had white wine and traditional cakes and sweets. A good time was had by all and if you speak a little Spanish you will understand what is being said in the video below.
