Spring is on the way!!
Well while Britain is experiencing the worst snow fall in 18 years we have nice sunny days and much warmer temperatures. The first snowdrops have popped their heads up which to me is a sure sign that spring is on the way.The big difference with Britain having snow and snow here is , we have very low temperatures with it IE. 16 degrees below zero on the coldest day in Arad this winter.
I managed to go to the English conversation club last Wednesday with Gloria and Kate and Amy came too, It was nice to see everyone again and there was endless chatter about all sorts of things.I think we shall all be glad again when the Terrace opens at the end of April beginning of May. It is so pleasant to sit outside and the gardens are lovely. The speed life is passing it will not be long, I never used to believe it when folk used to say "time passes quicker the older you get" but now I know they were right.
I am hoping to visit Manchester in April to see my family, it will be almost a year since i went , so it will be good to see everyone and walk round Hyde market, go to Ashton and Stockport on the bus and of course to eat "HOLLANDS" meat pies ha ha !! Yum oh! and of course fish and chips.
Well it is Wednesday again already so Gloria (my friend from Ireland) and I hope to go to the club again tonight. I have a few jobs on the agenda today so must get on.
I was just comparing prices the other day whilst shopping and everything here is dearer now than UK, you can not get a tin of tomatoes or baked beans for under 40p., butter is £1.50 for half a pound and the gas and electric are so much dearer. It seems people think things are cheap here but that is not the case, however that does not stop me from still liking living here .!!!!
