July has been an important month for me in many ways:
1. I Kickstarted my blog
This is absolutely life-changing for me and I love the blogging community. Everyone is so supportive and welcoming and it really gives you a feeling of acceptance.
2. My family arrived for their first visit to Corfu
They have finally got to see how I live. Over in Corfu I live a very different lifestyle and it’s nice to be able to share this with my Mum.
3. I finally managed to go to the beach
Working in a tourist country doesn’t necessarily mean ‘a working holiday’. It sounds idyllic living abroad but it’s a lot of very hard work and sweating profusely. I managed to get to the beach and now have a very slight tan. It’s one shade darker than ‘ghostly’
4. I went back to England to see my family and attend my Grandpa’s funeral
I lost my Grandpa a few weeks ago. He had a long and fulfilled life but that doesn’t make it any easier. I’ll miss him a lot. It’s my first real big loss in a family and it’s really shown me how precious life is.
5. I will never take for granted what I have here in Corfu
Although I have my family in England, I also have a wonderful family and group of friends in Corfu who do so much for me and keep my head somewhat level when it all gets a little bit tough.
