Visiting Turkey, buying a flat & Boncuk…

Berkay has been here in England almost 4 months now and he is slowly settling in. He has spent most of his time working, and working really hard. Last week he done 54 hours, more than any other member of staff in the whole restaurant, and he gets so much praise from staff and customers! […]

Boncuk’s village life…

When we first found out the date Berkay was going to the army and me back to the UK, we worried about where Boncuk would go. Her coming here wasn’t an option, even though I tried to convince my family to have her, so she stayed with our friends in Fethiye for the first 2 […]

Army start date and a new home for Boncuk…

Home Sweet Home…

Settling in?

So, I’ve been here in Turkey for 5 weeks now, where on earth has the time gone? It’s been a while since I done a personal thoughts & feelings post, I’ve been focusing more on writing about days out and things to do and see. When I started this blog it was just going to be […]
