A day of celebration
I was telling Alfie dog this morning, that 9 years ago today, he , Cloudy Cat , Tiffy cat, Tony and I were boarding an airplane from East Midlands airport, heading for a new life here fulltime in Peyia.
So Alfie is an “international traveller” and has “full charge” of the hill in Peyia on which we live……..
The past 8 years have flown by. I cannot believe how quickly or how much has changed when it seems also that life has stood still. Sadly, Cloudy and Tiff passed away over the years but we’ve been lucky enough to be found by Molly Mou, Jake and Charlie Cat. Alfie has remained constant throughout, welcoming change and new members of our family, living through extending the villa and building the business – and many, many visitors to our home……
We’ve made such wonderful friends here: some, like Susie F and The Great Raymondodoulou, lived near us in the UK but we’d never have met them . Others, like Karen and Wayne, we’d never have had the chance to meet had it not been for Cyprus. Their friendship is the “for life” kind and we love them all dearly.
We’ve also made great friends with owners of the villas and apartments we rent, in Coral Bay and Peyia – and the wonderful guests who come and stay. There are far worse jobs to do!
I’m grateful to Peyia, our Cypriot friends and the experiences we’ve had here, for so very much. I feel a little emotional today; my family in the UK seem so far away but I know my home is here and all is well.
As to the next 8 years, BRING IT ON! X
