OH!!! Gosh we have snow now!!!
Oh !! I spoke too soon, we have thick snow now and it's still snowing. It is very pretty out there but minus 5 deg. I shall be staying in today I wouldn't want to slip and upset my back again and it is jolly cold, I chanced it to the dustbins and that was bad enough. The strange thing is; things have not come to a stand still as they did in UK !!!!!
I got a phone call last week on Wednesday from Catherine at the BBC , she asked if I would go on Radio Manchester again , I said OK. So Thursday am, I was on the radio talking about communications.I told them how good Skype was for me, to be able to talk to my sister in Hyde who has no computer but I speak to her on the land line for an hour or so , usually Sunday when she has time to talk and it only costs me about 50p and of course to Angie and Bill in Oldham for nothing as they have a computer. We also spoke about the Blog and how people contact me from all over the world to ask about Romania. They also mentioned Twitter but I have not as yet explored that.
It was Amy's birthday on Sunday so the gang came and we had cheese and biscuits , nibbles and cakes and a little champagne , it was nice to see everyone if a bit tiring but that's normal, we had eight adults and three children, Mary Beth who has come as a volunteer to help for three weeks is wonderful with the children and is a lovely girl we will be sorry when she leaves, her Mum is a nurse and she came last year to help the charity that Kathy and Kenneth run for the poor people and street children.
I am looking forward to my trip to Hyde and have booked wheelchair assistance as the walking across Munich airport and Manchester are too much for me with the state of my back and I want to get there feeling OK so that I can enjoy my stay with Betty and Tom and hopefully see Angie and Bill and all the rest of my family and friends. I will be there for Easter so that will be nice.
Hope you like the photo's I took this morning from the apartment. The snow is so pretty !!!!
