Sunny Cyprus?

We have now entered the final chapter of our Cyprus posting, a few nights in a hotel before we fly back to the UK on Sunday. Amidst the chaos of the last few weeks the Easter weekend has been something of a target for us, the end of April is usually hot and consistently sunny and we imagined ourselves enjoying a couple of days on a sun lounger topping up our tan before we return to the UK.

I suspect this couple relaxing by our hotel pool today had similar plans - who would have known that while the UK basked in April sunshine, Cyprus would be struggling with rain and unseasonably cold temperatures? Still at least console ourselves that we haven't paid to fly all the way here to experience it!

So with three days to go, we've now both finished work, handed back our quarter (after 5 long long days cleaning it to meet military specifications) and posted our final excess baggage to the UK. The dogs are in kennels till they fly on Sunday night and we are trying to decide whether its kinder to leave them there, or to visit them tomorrow and take them for a long walk... but then put them back in their pens just as they think they might be going home! Fellow dog owners what do you think?


  1. I wouldn't be able to resist visiting them but I see your point about not getting their hopes up! tough one.
    PS it was 26 when driving home this evening here!!!

  2. Leave the dogs in their pens. They will have forgotten about you already. Good luck with the move, you'll be pleased to know that it's boiling over here at the moment, even in Scotland. You'll feel right at home. Bon Voyage!

  3. Hello Clare! I have to say that I'm a bit sad that this may be your final posting--I do hope that you'll continue to blog and let us know how everything has gone.

    As far as visiting the dogs--I would go and see them. If they are upset about being there, seeing you and being able to get out of the kennel may help any anxiety they may be having at having to be boarded. I know it'll be hard to leave them, and they won't understand, but you'll have the peace of mind knowing that they are doing okay and ready for their trip.

    Safe travels Clare!! Take care!!

  4. I have just found your blog - sounds like an interesting life! enjoy Scotland, I am going to put you on my google reader and see how you find Scotland.

  5. Good luck with the move, Scotland is enjoying amazing weather so I hope it holds for your arrival.
