Yesterday and today have been unbelievably grey and dull. Even in Winter it’s usually sunny but it’s been cloudy and raining on and off. I don’t like rain, at all, but I can deal with it- I own wellington boots, thick coats with hoods and an umbrella- but what I cannot deal with is the darkness.
Luckily Tuesday was a glorious day and being the snap happy kinda person I am, I made sure to get a few photos to look back on when the weather is crappy and hope the memory of sunshine cheered me up! And somehow it does- especially as I know this greyness wont last long, not like in the UK where it lasts 80% of the year!
We had to go to Marsa (which is awful by the way!) to sort out a loan phone for Joe whilst his is in being repaired (pay €400 for a mobile and it’s breaks within a few months. Technology!) and we had to change buses at Valletta so on the way back we had a wander and some lunch. Along the Waterfront at Grand Harbour all the balconies were festooned with coloured ribbon and masks- I don’t know if this is a permanent fixture or something to do with the carnival (but I think that’s just in Gozo?) but they looked stunning.
I may not have enjoyed lunch that much but the setting was just beautiful. Look at the colour of the harbour sea right next to our table! I really can’t wait til I can frolic in the sea every day before work, on lunch and as soon as I finish!
