The house is long finished and let out leaving us to settle down in the UK. We’ve moved to Liverpool and the kids have settled into school – there’s even a trace of a Scouse accent.
Looking back on my experiences in Ukraine usually brings out a smile because of the comic situations I found myself in. So, I thought it may be time to share these and many of the other amusing stories I’ve encountered during a decade living, working and playing in Ukraine.
A book is underway with the working title of “Telling Tales” and I’ve set myself a target of having it written and published by my next birthday – March 31st 2021.
So, if Ukraine is your homeland, temporary nest or place on your bucket list to visit … why not subscribe and I’ll keep you posted of progress.
Well, we did it. 361 days in total… Just short of 4 days before a year had passed since we started work ….. we moved in to our brand new house. There have been trials and tribulations along the way… but notably the best house-warming present of all was our twins: Astrid and David.
In between feeds Anya (who was the driving force throughout to get the builders moving) is sorting out the garden… and we are starting to unpack and begin our new life.
If you want advice on building your own home in Ukraine please feel free to drop me a line glyn @ ace123.com
But, for now… It’s “Goodbye!”
This blog, like our “Mooxa” the Moskvitch … is parked.
I'm the author of the blog and the book "Telling Tales". I spent a happy decade in Ukraine working and living and am now settled in the UK with my Ukrainian wife and our three children. The book is based loosely on tales from Anya's past most notably the period of the Holodomor.
This is the working cover and title of my new project
