2010 – not all it’s cracked up to be so far!


We were talking the other day that so far, 2010 has not been such a hot year for us. And yes, this is another moaning minnie blog! 🙂

The weather has been really rubbish until this week. The dogs have been sick and back and forth to the vet most weeks. The power system keeps acting up and still is not sorted. Today? Have to totally rearrange the planned trip to the UK because one of the dogs gets kennel cough. And the list goes on.

Our friends say the same, but for different reasons. Health problems. Teeth problems. Back problems. Roof leaking. And the list goes on.

However, even though Jan – April has been really iffy, I feel really sure that the remainder of the year will be good. Lujos goes from strength to strength. We are pretty healthy most of the time, as is the rest of the family.

And I’m also sure that now that we are finally getting our traditional Andalucian blue skies back, we can view everything in a more positive light!

  1. I always say our troubles strenghten us, but it sure doesn’t feel that way sometimes (when we are in the midst of battling the difficulties).

    2010 has been odd!

    Take care and enjoy your time away, Ann.


    • So true, Mary! It always does get better, or at least changes for awhile, so that’s ok. Just sometimes….gets us down!
