Spring is here at last
And the house needs this weather too. At last I can open all the doors and windows and try to dry out the many damp patches..and get rid of the awful smell that accompanies them.
Maybe the millipedes will make their way outside too. We haven't been over-run with them, but I keep finding them on the ceilings and walls. Disgusting little creatures. They don't do any harm...but I hate them and having to dispose of them. Within a few days it won't be damp enough to encourage them into the house...I hope.
January and February have been so stressful and depressing. With the lack of money, we are struggling to survive. Mr Ayak has done his absolute best to find local work, without success...apart from one day on a building site which he hoped would turn into weeks, but it wasn't to be. And he still hasn't been paid for that day's work which was almost two weeks ago...nothing new there!
He continues to meet up with his partner to make plans and prepare for their business venture, which will hopefully get off the ground in April, but I guess it will be some time before we see money rolling in. When we do, he has vowed to pay off my enormous credit card debt, which has risen sharply over the winter, and without which, we'd have starved.
Even though father-in-law didn't show up last month as he said he would, I know it's only a matter of time before he lands on us for another visit, with his constant criticism and desire to control our lives. But no matter...I'm ready for him!
The start of Spring not only lifts my spirits, but it gives me confidence to deal with whatever is thrown at me. It's a feeling of anticipation too...the promise of better things to come. I'm optimistic today. It can only get better from now on.
PS. I've stopped moderating comments. It's just one more hassle. If any spammers turn up...fine...go ahead...you'll just be deleted anyway!
