A lazy blogger, Christmas and an earthquake

Things I learnt this week; December makes me a lazy blogger, Christmas in Cyprus is not all that bad and I don't take much notice of earth quakes apparently.

I have been really slack since the boyfriend crash landed in Cyprus. I had planned to have blog posts scheduled for the duration of his visit, but that never really happened. What with the buzz of the boyfriend arriving and the excitement of Christmas, my mind has since been elsewhere and silence has fallen upon the blog. 

I was totally spoilt for christmas this year with the boyfriend surprising me with an a.m.a.z.i.n.g present,  while family showered me with some much needed beauty favourites from England, ASOS vouchers for my fashion fix and the boyfriends mum sent me a necklace I talked about on this blog a few months ago, but more on that later.  She really is one clever and observant women. 

The weeks festivities were intertwined with a few crazy hectic work days. But Christmas Day was one big fat Cypriot feast. Uncles hovered around the souvla, aunties prepared side dishes and salads, cousins were reunited and great grandchildren drove everyone crazy with their screaming and new toys which meant the whole day was playtime.

And to end the week a little earthquake hitting 6 on the Richter scale. Which by the way, I didn't feel at all and I'm rather pleased I didn't because I was in the shower at the time and I don't think that's the safest place to be! 


  1. I remember while I stayed on a little island near Athens that we had an earthquake in the middle of the night, I just remember waking up and saying, if it gets any worse I will go outside and then fell back to sleep haha.

    1. so far there has only been one earthquake here since I arrived and I didn't feel that one so thats good. Although it was quite a big one, it was somewhere in the ocean near to Turkey so to feel it here shows how strong it was. I don't know what il do when I actually experience one. :)
