Exciting times. We Love Tapas has a whole new look! With some help from the wonderful Aldara I was gently nudged into looking at some other theme options. And while the site is still a bit “under construction” (photos need retaking, logo will be changing, and some other tweaking needs doing) here’s a sneak preview of the new WLT site. What do you think?

I’ve often thought that September feels like the real “new year”, rather than the first of January. Summer holidays are (mostly) over, shops and bars have reopened, there are lots more people out and about. This week especially has a distinct “back to school” feel to it as I get things organised for the whack of Sevilla Tapas Tours booked over the next couple of months and settle back into a routine of getting chores done and going to the gym. Meanwhile I chip away at the iceberg of blog posts and articles that need to be written or updated, including editing the 3000 or more photos I took over the summer. Any spare time is being spent on putting together my new Trip Planning biz, which is pretty much ready to go but still needs fine tuning before I properly launch it.
It’s also a time for taking care of practical matters like tax stuff (ick) and finally seeing the dentist. I had planned to put the latter off until the next PET scan, but after having lost a fourth filling (plus much tooth) last month, another fell out over the weekend and, well, FIVE half-gone teeth seems like too much to ignore. I’ve got my oncology appointment on the 22nd, so blood work will have to be done before that, and then the quite possibly scariest PET scan of all will be sometime in October. So much hinges on this one coming back clean as it’ll mark five years since my last chemo and – if all is well – a change in how I’m monitored. Most likely I’ll switch to having annual PET scans instead of every six months and maybe they’ll even remove the chemo port. Both of these would be such much-needed positive changes in my life (I can’t even bear to consider the alternative) that I’m almost too scared to hope. I’ll let you guys do that for me. 😉
But at least so far, it’s all good this September. Lots to do, lots of new stuff coming up. Very exciting. How about you? How’s your “new year” coming along?
Don’t worry, it’s not a new blog! It’s the same azahar’s kitchen that I’ve had on WordPress.com for years, but now that I’m “housecleaning” I’ve decided to put it on my new Spain site (continuity, etc, blah blah). No pesky ads, nice clean layout. What do you think?
I was also going to move my photo blog over to azahar-spain.com since, like the kitchen blog, it isn’t “city specific”, and then only have Sevilla Tapas and Azahar in Sevilla on azahar-sevilla.com. But I had a few issues with the photos not importing properly and I can’t spend time re-doing the whole thing, so for now at least, it will stay where it is. Phew! It will all be worth it in the end…
