The house on Liberty Street.

We moved into our new apartment on Liberty street in Pissouri. As soon as we saw this apartment we loved it.

We now live in heart of the village and from our balcony we have Panoramic views over Akrotiri Bay and the snow capped Troodos mountains.
We now live next to the family who own the apartment, the family is Theo and his wife Xenia and there 2 daughters Rafiella and Maria.

Return to Cyprus

We flew from Manchester (UK) to Paphos with Thomas cook, the plane as very cramped but the four and a half hour flight flight was smooth.

We were met at the airport by our friends Mike and Steph who took us to the Pissouri residents club for a welcome drink, we also met up with Simmo who won the sweepstake about the date of our return to Cyprus which earned him a few quid.

Shipping out.

We have arrived on our final day in the UK, yesterday the packers/movers arrived and Richard and Kevin packed over 100 boxes of household goods.

This morning the container is due to arrive and all our belongings will be loaded and sent by sea to Cyprus.

So for a few days we are homeless, which is a strange feeling, but tomorrow we start our journey to Cyprus. Hopefully this blog will continue when we reach the Island.

Final Weekend in Wenvoe

On our final weekend we have been busy with final packing, selling our cars and cleaning unwanted goods from the house. Mandy has spent here days thoroughly cleaning the house.

Rob went out with all his old friends for a farewell drink, they all met up in Cardiff Bay at "The Packet"pub . A good time was had by all and it was made even more enjoyable when Wales beat England at Rugby.

As I write this post it is 2.30 am and the Moving and packing team are due here in a couple of hours, my mind can't rest at the moment trying to think of last minute details.

Farewell to Sunny Leckwith

Last night we took a trip to Leckwith to say goodbye to our friends Karen, Sean and their son Liam.

We enjoyed a very good meal and laughed until tears rolled down our cheek as we reminisced about old times, especially the old story of Sean and Rob's visit to the United Nations building in New York.
Liam proudly showed off his WWF wrestling belts.

Final week

We are now just over a week before the removal men and our shipping container arrives, this week we sold Mandy's car and gave furniture to one of our friend's son's who moving into his first apartment, we cannot believe how much "stuff" we have gathered in the 4 1/2 years we have lived here in Wenvoe, we have thrown out countless bags to the refuse man.

This coming weekend we have organised a couple of farewell gatherings with our friends and family, I just have to make sure these events don't clash with this weekend rugby match against England.
