Life in Cyprus: 2003

January: - cold, rain, a poorly designed kettle, and the last public 'Frog Prince'

February: yet more wintry weather, a visit from my parents, guided walks in Larnaka

March: still cold and rainy. A couple of day trips out, and a concerted attempt to get rid of the snails in our garden

April: A late Spring gives us the chance to work hard in the garden, cutting the last of the long weeds, and organising compost heaps

May: a heatwave followed by the first roaches, musical activities and a sailing trip with friends

June: more insects around the house, hotter weather, and a wedding at our church

July: brief camps in the mountains, ants invading the house, far too hot to do anything much in the daytime

August: hot and humid, with a brief trip to the North of Cyprus, and a week-long visit from some friends

September: a month in the UK seeing family and friends, and attending my brother's wedding

October: regular activities start again; Daniel learns to make and use 'poi'.

November: surprisingly warm and dry; saying goodbye to one family and another friend.

December: music, drama, and loads of rain; Christmas activities and 'The Dancing Bear'.
