Having a lovely time...

Well except of course for right this minute where I am listening to football chat where I haven't the slightest clue what anything means.  Boyf is watching the Pompey/Chelsea game while I have sat here dutifully not asking which team is which, drunk my wine and been glued to my net book (which I am secretly loving).   So far in the time that a bunch of wet blankets have managed to kick a ball in a net* I have managed to finish and send my story for womag 2 weekly, sink an entire glass of wine, make a new friend, ignore some football chatter, facebook some friends and read up on blog posts.  Not bad for 45 minutes work - and no injuries whatsoever.  I know who the real winner is here!!

So yes, here I am in sunny Cyprus for the third time in 2 years and I still love it.  This time we decided to visit Paphos where it is pretty quiet but the weather is glorious and the sea, just a stones throw from our hotel, is a silky blue bed of come get me heaven and the sun never fails to give me a nice warm hug whenever I step outside in the morning.  I haven't ventured in the sea though as despite the sun leaving me with burnt bits here and there, the water is still bloody freezing.  Just 2 and a bit days left and I feel properly chilled.  Car insurance paperwork and scrapped cars are but a distant memory but I know it can't last forever.  I may stay here forever.  Call it research....

*Apologies to any hard core footballers/fans - I just cannot stand being a football widow!!!


  1. Sounds like you're having a great time. Have to admit to slight jealousy of your sunburn - it's pouring (and freezing) here and sunburn seems a much more attractive prospect.


  2. Glad to hear that you're having a good time. It's pouring here to. I believe Chelsea would have been wearing white tonight and they were the ones that scored 5 goals. I'm not a closet Chelsea fan but I have lived in a house full of men for nearly 30 years so I know a lot about football. I even understand the off side rule.
    Looking forward to reading your W2W story.

  3. Glad you're having such a fab time, you certainly sound like you're in the best place right now. I could do with a little sunshine, but am going to have to wait for summer to make an appearance over here.

  4. My husband was glued to that game too. Glad you're having a fab time otherwise.

  5. Suzanne - My burnt bits have now gone brown but fading fast... need another holiday quick!

    Colette - Boyf did explain the offside rule once and i understood it but my brain retained that info for all of about 5 minutes. Luckily (for me - not boyf) Ireland is not in the World Cup so we should have a football free household this summer!

    Debs - I'll be in Jersey for a weekend in June so I'll be wishing good weather for you then! It's sunny here but its a mocking sun as its still cold :(

    DJ - Thanks, sadly I am back in the UK but am swiftly planning the next holiday!
