First of all the main thing is that our family and friends are safe and well and were not badly affected by Monday's explosion at the Evangelos Florakis Naval base which was a huge disaster for Cyprus.
We are having twice daily power cuts and will have for maybe up to a year! We should save a fortune on our electric bill and it means I can't waste as much time on Twitter/Facebook/etc
Leo has arrived in the 'terrible two's' with a vengeance - but just when I could cheerfully throttle him he does something amazing cute and/or clever and I am (trying) not wishing him to grow up too soon as I know it will happen before I know it really.
It's HOT, HOT, HOT (I know, I moved to Cyprus, I wanted hot weather and I do honestly but for some reason (maybe no air-con!) this week it is really getting to me) - I hate the rain and cold with a passion, and I can't stand unpredictable weather, it's going to be sunny for months yet so I don't have to try and plan outfits and days out around possible rain!
I have a bad back - umm, I'm struggling to find a decent reason to be cheerful about this one to be honest! Maybe I can get out of sweeping and mopping for a while, that would make me cheerful :)
