My Life (blog)

Weekly, day-to-day blog following my hectic expat life in Istria.

Not sure who the people are? In theory there’s a ‘hover’ over everyone’s name (so hold your mouse over a name & a box will pop up telling you who they are). If it doesn’t work, have a look in ‘Who’s who’, under the ‘About’ menu.

If an item is underlined but not clickable, it means an article is in preparation. I’ll add the proper link when it’s ready for you to read. Bear with me, this all takes time!

Live Istria is out there!

Progress – what progress?


A week where nothing seems to go smoothly, but in fact I get a lot done. Web design proves time consuming, but I get there in the end, and there’s progress in the garden despite some very hot weather. But house hunting slows to a crawl. Monday, 1 August Bitter-sweet day. On the up-side,...

I sell a house!


Interesting week: I sell a house, but get no closer to buying one of my own. Rain stops play in the garden, but means I make great progress with Live Istria. Monday, 25 July Tony and Ruth want to see the Losari house with Damir. They went up on their own yesterday and loved...
