Whilst I’ve been enjoying overcast skies and cooler temperatures in the UK this week, Jim is back in Cyprus where despite reaching the (alleged) mid-August cool off point, it has apparently still been stiflingly hot.
Bella our beagle was spayed yesterday, and I don’t envy her being the one recovering for an operation in the humidity. There’s small consolation in the fact that this should be the dogs last summer in Cyprus. We are due posting next July and have a few tricks up our sleeve that mean the dogs at least, should get an early release.
Meanwhile it’s another two weeks before I’m allowed to fly back to Cyprus, but my recovery is going well. I’ve had a remarkable lack of pain and the worst aspects have been not being able to shower properly and being restricted to sleeping on my back. Small prices to pay.
It’s been an interesting week to jump on the 365 band wagon. I missed the start of the year, so instead I’m documenting 2010 from my 34th birthday onwards. My mother has kept a 5 year diary for twenty five years, so this will be my modern interpretation…. and of course it will provide lots of photo fodder for this blog.
PS – By the way, that’s my birthday cake in the photo above. You are NEVER too old for jelly babies.
