Putting Retainers on Our Lives

Hungary holds many joys, but I can't count early appointments as one of those. One morning I had to take Erin to the dentist at 6 a.m. We were pleased to be one of the first to arrive, but it didn't take the room long to fill up with more sleepy people. When...

How to Avoid Falling in Potholes

Our car came back from the garage today. We had been particularly worried about the strange clunking noises it was making which were getting louder by the day.  Our minds were running riot with all sorts of thoughts about what could be the matter, and frankly, we were...

I’m still sick of it!

I'm sick of it! Part 2 The Red Sludge A few years ago Hungary hit world news when toxic red sludge burst through a dam at Kolontar. Kolontar is a village about 75km south of us and, at the time, we didn't know what impact it would have on us.  On the Thursday after...

I’m sick of it!
