I have been trying to break the Eccossaise into small chunks so that I get the fingerings right and they are better than a week ago. For each section I try to listen to your and Lucian's recording and match them and, funny, to my ear they are close but when I listen to them on the recoding they are way off. I am using a metronome on the slurs to slow them down. Let's see what this sounds like in 4 or 5 days.
I agree with Tom, considering the time you spend away from the guitar you are doing well. I am still struggling with Sor's lessons, you are more advanced with those.
But it's about Ecossaise that I want to tell you how I managed to play it (it's still work in progress but I'm rather pleased with it for now). For the first time I used the STEP PRACTICE by Douglas Niedt, you can find it on his website, and I'm under impression that method helped me learning faster than usually. Playing slowly, and not passing to the next note until not playing correctly (or almost ) the preceding notes. You can give it a try, maybe it will help you too.
And, maybe trying to mach my playing on Ecossaise is not the best idea, or at least not yet. In a couple of years...
