I think it is about time that i re-started my english blog, so here it goes.
Living on Gran Canaria has its ups and downs and we have lived through quite a lot of them. One of the negative things is that you are so far away from family and friends. With our son living in Todmorden and us here it is quite difficult at times to lend a helping hand when it is needed althou we do try our hardest. I have spent a lot of time the last few years flying back and forth to England to look after the kids during holidays and trying to be there birthdays and christmas. Yes i have enjoyed it as i do miss the little buggers when i dont see them, but after a few weeks of constant Nana here Nana there im always glad to get back home to the peace and quiet and of course the warm weather.
I have made some very dear friends in Todmorden, and now that our son has got married and is moving, i will miss the daily catch ups with Stacey and Karen when i am in england. These two ladies are amazing. Always ready to lend a helping hand and a shoulder to cry on if needed. Yes i will go to see them when im over, but……….. its not the same as living next door.
