A sad day, but life goes on ....

When I posted my last blog piece full of excitement and hope of living a more normal life now that most of our building work nears completion, little did I know that, that very same evening life would give us another knock. Every night when we are f...

April is definitely one of the most momentous months for us. On an everyday basis it is the month when we begin to change from winter mode into summer one. The outdoor furniture goes back outside, the terrace starts to be an additional room in everyd...

Yesiluzumlu Mushroom Festival 2015

Today is the last day of the annual three day mushroom Festival and yesterday we wandered down to join the festivities. It seems strange to see our village which is normally so quiet heaving with visitors. The roads through the middle of the village...

The weather has improved and it's go, go, go at Fogie's Place!

Hooray it's April and summer is getting close, another winter done. The weather is variable with some rainy days and showers but interspersed at last with some beautifully warm - almost hot days. The tortoises are coming out of hibernation, leaves ar...

It's so hard to say goodbye ...

A few days ago our poorly cat Çingene passed away during the night. We miss her so much. As I had explained in previous posts she suffered from a viral infection - picked up during her life on the streets and also chronic kidney disease. She came h...

Spring is springing!

Goodbye February 2015

Well here we are on the last day of February. Thank goodness, I hate February! It's too cold, wet and miserable for us sun lovers. Usually the worst month of the year. This morning I woke up to the loudest clap of thunder I have ever heard, and of c...

Çingene - the uninvited 'short term' visitor

Two bits of good news one here and one from the UK!

I don't want to tempt fate by mentioning it, but so far we have had all services since they returned just over a week ago. It is great to be warm, to have water, to be able to heat the water for a shower, use the phone and have internet connection.

Life is back to normal again

Following on from our week of having power cuts, no water and no internet, on Thursday the power went off yet again. After a short while it came back on and with it the Internet returned. However, by the time we had moved the table back into the kitc...

A funny old week for the services

When the electricity came back on Friday afternoon after a 17 hour cut, we thought our problems were over - wrong! The electricity went off again in the evening and was off through the night and for most of Saturday too. We can tell when the electric...

High winds, freezing temperatures and the dramas continue

After discovering yesterday that we had a problem with our solar panels - in that water was pouring off the roof - the maintenance guys arrived by early afternoon to investigate what had caused the problem. In typical Turkish fashion they placed a ta...

Not a good start to the year

One thing we have noticed here is the uncanny accuracy of the local weather forecasts. Weather change is often predicted some weeks ahead and is almost always spot on, with temperature changes, storms etc. proving to be forecast correctly almost down...

Our visit to Kabak and the Lissya Hotel

This week we are 'on holiday' and we are trying to tick some of the things off the list of places that we have wanted to visit but somehow never have. One of these places is Kabak. We have heard many people extolling the virtues of the place but for...
