So where's the snow?

Muddling through in Austria; God, life and a small black dog

So where have I been?

1 Comment


I can’t believe that its heading towards the end of February and I haven’t written for weeks. We’ve been busy with holiday houses, one is a permanent disaster, not only is the heating odd, but the fridge died and had to be replaced, the tv lost its signal, had to be sorted, guests up to unimaginable yucky things……roll on Easter. Just dealing with these things, dog walking, doing stuff and the days are eaten up.

The snow has turned up in shed loads but as fast as we’ve cleared it, its melted! Today as Swingle had her afternoon perambulation, it was +14 and she was panting!  She had a play week with her best friend Bella, blog on that coming up!

And now having finally worked out that I’m gluten intolerant, I’ve had an awful bout of diverticulitis and have to go in for a ‘probe’ this week, but thankfully just a day clinic. Apparently, I cannot have a CT scan because the marking fluid affects the thyroid, and I can’t have that causing more problems.

We’ve made some new English friends here, who are thinking of setting up a summer language school, and that may resolve the work situation for me long term. I had one job interview as the Job centre sent me loads. It was a cross between what you want Lord and please not another cleaning job!!! It’s at a local farm that has built an extension for events such as weddings, and its in walking distance.  However, I’ve got the job, and Dave and I think it will work out, at least  neither of us will be claiming the dole for the summer!

But I’m happy, I’m trying in my own faint hearted/ unbelief dogged  way to receive in my healing and God’s plan for our lives here. How’s your year shaping up?

  1. That language school sounds really interesting
