Cyprus Life – in pictures vs Fylde Coast Musings

Our new life in Cyprus began in early March 2004. Originally from a small mill town in Heywood, Lancashire (United Kingdom) we moved overseas spending a glorious 12 years in Limassol. Feel free to read my posts and view my many #photosofCyprus. However in 2016 we had to return permanently to UK due to family ill health. We're now living on the Fylde coast where the river Wyre meets the Irish sea in the north west of England. More places for us to discover as this part of the UK is not so familiar to us either.

That put paid to the swimming for today!

Yeah well, the plan for today was as follows:

  1. Do some “stuff” on ‘internet while my other half re-stained a couple of steamer chairs in the side yard.
  2. Off to Debenhams to do some shopping with my Gift Voucher I got for my birthday last year before the credit expired on it.
  3. A spot of lunch.
  4. Off to the Aphrodite Club swimming pool to do some serious swimming before it gets too cold. After September, that’s it for me – no more pool. I’m a bit nesh* that way…
  5. Home again and some more internet – work stuff this time though!

But, we were well and truly scuppered 😦

Suddenly the heavens opened and it absolutely poured it down with the rain bouncing off the roofs of both of our cars.

I managed to get some pictures and some more when the sun came back out. Just look at that sky!

*Nesh is an English dialect adjective meaning unusually susceptible to cold weather and there is no synonym for this use. Usage has been recorded in Cheshire, Staffordshire, the East Midlands, Lancashire, South Yorkshire, Derbyshire and Shropshire.
