Another crap day. Grey and cold. I can feel myself becoming more depressed. I really do think my general happiness is linked to sun, I was never happier than when we lived in Dubai. The UAE is the only country that I have ever lived in where I didn’t take medication. I miss it. A…… Continue reading Its raining, its pouring….
I swear I am still cold from this morning. It is freezing, raining and miserable in Baku today. Not the best weather for running but we did it anyway. It was awful.

The kids both wanted to stay up for the count…… Continue reading Happy New Year of the Granny Square
Merry Christmas from Azerbaijan. Christmas in Baku is great. We always have someone say, “But don’t you want to go home from Christmas?”. Nope. Never. Actually we are home, this is where we live, this is where my children should wake up on Christmas morning, it’s where Santa leaves the presents after all. Flying back…… Continue reading Merry Christmas and yes that was a Donkey
