#Merry Christmas #Feliz Navidad And Goodbye 2020, finally! Adiós a 2020, por fin!

Hi all:

I’m particularly disorganised this year, but I didn’t want to miss the opportunity of sending you some Season Greetings. This has been a terrible year for all, even for those of us who’ve been lucky enough not to have been too personally affected by it (and my thoughts go to those who have lost a loved one and/or are still trying to get over the illness and its aftermath).

I didn’t know what to do this year, and I remembered Paul, a fellow blogger (if you love daily quizzes, love films, TV series, and enjoy quirky music and are after some pretty encyclopedic knowledge on all kinds of things, you must check his blog here), suggested that I could turn my little bilingual book into a video, and I’ve done that. I’ve only used the images, but the book is pretty short, so you’ll probably get a sense of what it’s about. Thankfully for anybody who might watch it, neither the images (thanks to Unsplash) nor the music (YouTube’s own free offerings) are mine, so don’t worry. You’re probably safe.

20 cosas que he aprendido de mis pacientes. Consejos de una psiquiatra para ayudarte a vivir mejor
Dra. Olga Núñez Miret

As I went over the images and words for the video, I thought of other possible translations and variations for some of them, but I decided to leave them as they are. Translation is a pretty subjective matter, in any case, but in case you are students of English or Spanish, these are not literal translations. In some cases, they are far from it.

And now, here comes the video, and please, stay safe this holiday season, if you celebrate it at all. Hopefully, there will be more, and we’ll be able to celebrate them as we’d like. But his year, be careful.

Take care.

Thanks for being there! ¡Muchas gracias!

#MerryChristmas and gift!

Dear readers:

It’s that time of the year again. I thought I’d point it out in case you had not noticed.

I considered doing something spectacular this year, but well, I’ve been a bit busy and I know you will be busy too, so here goes:

And I thought I’d give you a Christmas present. A little book I published last year, with advice and pictures, bilingual, that you might enjoy.

You can download it in MOBI format here:

And here in Epub format:

And if you know anybody else who might fancy it, please direct them to this page.

Enjoy the holiday season! And keep smiling!

#MerryChristmas Thank you for reading and enjoy a wonderful holiday season!

Hi, all!

Incredibly, another year has gone by and it’s Christmas again.

A Christmas Tree, more or less

I don’t know how your year has been. Mine has been… trying, to say the least, but hey, there’s another one around the corner. And so I wish you a fabulous time if you celebrate it. Enjoy it, don’t get stressed (it’s not an exam), and live the moment.

Belén en Plaça Sant Jaume de Barcelona
The nativity in Plaça Sant Jaume (St James’s Square) in Barcelona is a bit special this year

If you don’t celebrate it, I hope you have a quiet time and survive the upheaval as best you can. Reading always helps.

I wanted to thank you for reading, for sharing and for being around all this time and for all your support. I have a new book coming out next week, and then I hope to take a bit of time to reevaluate the blog (yes, New Year calls for that kind of thing). In the meantime, do enjoy!

Merry Christmas, my dear friends!
