Without whom I would not be here to tell the tale.
'A happy Valentines day to all our readers'(hopefully). Here we currently have very cold wind to contend with,strong as well, as sitting here in my room with super ser on i listen to it howl around the eaves. Yesterday i interspersed my mail writing with a bath(not many places provide bath,bed, gas heating and internet connection together.!).Today I'm just glad to have peace for a while as yesterday my Bulgarian was stretched to the limit trying to get 2 of M's grandchildren to leave me in peace and go away to their own houses!In the end i succeeded but it took a lot out of me (and the day!).We had a brief overnight snowfall Thurs evening but by yesterday it had gone away in the sunshine.More expected towards next week. The last proper snow we had coincided with one of John's (car)times and I quickly went back to swop for the jeep before it got too bad.There was no snow in Zaicheno and 6" in Boyana.The new 4X4 information was put to good use although it still does not want to turn easily,with wheel slippage in this position,whilst negotiating snow and mud resulting ,outside lizard house.

full recovery although the loving affection is still present and hasn't waned as expected.Maybe he is feeeling his age(3)! I know I am as I have been diagnosed with cervical spondylitis ,resulting in some tingling in left arm.I was alarmed enough that when i had to go to get a blood pressure check(promised to finaghy center) I also mentioned the tingling.I had an ecg done and everything was perfect so that removed one fear (that I was having warnings like dad had before his coronary). Feel a bit stupid now but better safe than sorry.

I have found that the best help is to keep left hand behind my back wherever possible as this seems to free the nerve(s).No heavy lifting either.both new irritations but not life threatening!!Otherwise things are progressing smoothly. Routine established but too boring/'sad 'to talk about. However I have no complaints and am looking forward to seeing some people over here this year.Feel free to make plans anytime!

The other thing I have been doing is taking photos of old photos to get them on line and I have joined the facebook clan.Who says you can't teach an old dog new tricks! I also
