As I type this I am nursing a blood nose (I get these when I'm a bit run-down) and a cup of coffee. Although it's very difficult to drink coffee while holding a tissue up to your nose... Now would be a great time for coffee intravenously.
On Monday my brother-in-law and his beautiful girlfriend visited from Berlin toBliss.
rescue me stay for four days.
You just can't beat having family come and stay.
And English speaking family at that!
While they were here:
- I got to have two ridiculously large sleep-ins. I felt like a new woman and my blood-shot eyes went away for about two days.
- all the meals were cooked for me. What a treat! Especially because my brother-in-law is a chef.
- the drain pipe under the kitchen sink fell off. I'm still waiting for a plumber to take a look at the gaping hold in the sink where a pipe should be...
- we discovered how to get to "Megalo" (the big mall 15 minutes down the road) using the local buses. This is definitely not something for the faint-hearted. Needless to say I will not ever be doing this on my own.
Not having a car meant we got to hang out in the village and do a lot of relaxing at home. Coffee on the rooftop terrace and I even got some crochet done!
Such a wonderful chilled-out time together - although they've probably gone back to Berlin to catch up on their sleep...
My next english-speaking company arrives on Friday - my best friend is coming for the weekend, can't wait!
And then it's only another eight days until the return of my husband who will bring with him my sister and mum and dad - AAAAAAARRRRRGGGGGGGHHHHHH!!!!! I almost pass-out with excitement just thinking about it!
But for now, there's two pooey nappies that need changing...
