This is our 100th blog post here on Pul Biber.
We have had a busy day after getting up late. We have been preparing for summer, painting furniture on the roof terrace and sorting bits of garden. Ashley has various wounds from moving plants, cuts from sharp leaves and thorns. This evening our new gate was fitted this involved a fair amount of banging, welding and cutting of metal by moonlight. None of which is really very exciting.
Thinking back over the 100 posts on Pul Biber, they have been our story of our move here.
We don’t have a specific theme or direction for the blog. We’re not experts on Turkey, or, in fact, on any of the things we’ve posted about. We started the blog as a way to keep in touch with friends and family and, hopefully, as a way of meeting new people. As such, we think it’s been reasonably successful and, whilst we don’t get huge numbers of hits, we’re not playing this as a numbers game.
It is also our story, and as much as some of our not particularly interesting to anyone else entries may not be particularly interesting….. It serves as a reference for us.
In a sense, as we settle in, our day to day experiences have started to feel less like a whole new adventure. This sometimes leaves us struggling for subject matter. As time passes, as we settle in (and we’ve only been out here just over six months, we know we have a great deal to learn), the blog may well take a different direction – once we work out what that is.
At times there will be entries about new and exciting things, but life is not always about the new and exciting. A friend of ours is posting photographs of everyday things, we think some of our day to day is worth recording here.
