Same stuff, difference climate and currency!
Hoorah! I’ve had my first full day off so far, for over a year. What have I done with it? Well, as working women the world over know, what do you do with time off?
– dusted and vacuumed
– cleaned the floors
– made curry for tomorrow and prepared a roast dinner for tonight
– caught up on phone calls to family
– paid some bills
and I’m about to walk the dogs …….
Tony has just said to me, (in response to a question from me: how did you get on in Coral Bay at one of the villas this morning?)….. “It’s okay for you, Lynn: you’ve had the morning off and had time to have your hair trimmed!”…..
So life is life! The key differences here are that I KNOW I can have BBQs every day from April to end December coz the weather will be fine; No-one particularly cares if I’ve had my roots done or not, (coz Cypriot hair is so dark they think “real” blondes like me are unnatural! ….no comments please!); and I can sit back over a well deserved cuppa and choose to either watch the sea at Coral Bay or Banana Bay or turn and watch the goats climbing up the Peyia Hills……lovely.
Course, as I’ve just been reminded by my beloved, I’ve now got time to tidy the office up ready for our move into proper office premises in a couple of weeks! Roll on 48 hour days – (or will these be 48 x .585246 euros minutes from now on?!)
