Ha! do you think I am afraid, he would have to get past my missus first.....she will not let ANYONE touch a hair on my head. And she would defend her telly from the bailiffs until her last dying breath.

So let them do their worst.

I think next time, just be careful you don't call someone a French male escort with bad language skills.. Not surprised he put you on ignore.
(It does say thick and dumb as well as great and good according to the collins dictionary for thick Dingles like me)
Yeah wouldn't do that, us Frog's are a sensitive lot !

My apologies to JLFS, it appear's I did get the meaning wrong, I took it to mean "laughable, comedic", which actually turns out to be the less common meaning.

If I am wrong then I am sorry but he caused a right buzz about it.. No need..
Savateur doesn't mean saboteur, mate. It's the name for a male practitioner of French Boxing, as Savateuse is the name for a female practitioner.
Savate having the meaning of "old shoe", as it used to be a kicking art practiced by French sailors.
Again foreign languages causing confusion, maybe they should all see the light, and speak English !

Actually I looked up the meaning of "Cojonudo on Google translate, in hindsight a bad idea !

Anyway, I've made an apology to the relevant person, thats all thats needed on my part.

I see, well my French is about as good as my Welsh. (That's why I apologised in advance).
I tried to look the word cojonudo up on Google translate but it didn't say anything.
Can't beat my trusty Mr.Collins.. (For Spanish anyway)
Ah well, glad everyones happy.. It's good Friday after all..

Sorted.

Thats my French, I have the habit or pronouncing every letter as in Spanish, or reading it in an English way.

Hi Nicola15. When are you moving to Spain? We are also moving down at the end of the summer and we have a 19 months old baby. Perhaps we can help each other?

... have you seen the way the Spanish lay bricks

Their philosophy to brick laying seems to be to lay them any which way as they will be rendered later! Also, I've seen a number of walls where the bricks aren't even overlapped - I wonder how long those walls will last?

I doubt there are any english speaking colleges that teach bricklaying. There are international schools that teach the english curriculum to A-level, none do vocational courses and of course you do have to pay
