  1. I love this country, cooking away and the lovely neighbours pop round with stuffed peppers, olives etc... my sister was cooking a spinach and chick pea curry! well l started eating the goodies & then a huge plate of broccoli covered in lemon & garlic arrived on the scene.. plus good conversation - needless to say the curry can wait for tomorrow & who know's maybe we can all have a bowl full!You just can't feel bad living around such wonderful people.. My body has to go home but my heart will stay here! Bev xxx
  2. Thanks KKW, (sorry for delay in response) yes we have thougth of that & it may be the only way! just waiting to see what happens with the visa situation concerning Thomas Cook carrying pets from Turkey, should know by mid Nov?Had his first bird kill this morning - YUK lucky for me l knew nothing of it... thinks he's one of the lads now.. Bev xx
  3. Hi Abi, thank you very much. Yes it seems like a wait and see situation but l am sure it will be ok, Dylan loves it here so not sure he will be too pleased to leave!!Apologies for not being very active but had a few issues getting on line. I look forward to posting soon. As for the 'romantic' stories, l have to say reading the posts as l have done over the months, l'm happy to say l have stuck to the good Turkish food & lovely places to travel!!! l know, what a wimp! haha... take care Love Bev xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
  4. Hi Sunny, Sorry didn't make myself clear, we have the original box he flew out in & that will be fine. Its a trustworthy pet company that we need. Having said that we had an e-mail yesterday saying that 'Thomas Cook' had applied for a visa to fly pets out of Turkey, they are awaiting feedback and will know more by November. So it may be that we can cut out the middle man (and save cok para) and organise most of it ourselves! fingers crossed.At this stage any help would be great. Thanks Sunny. Love Bev xxx
  5. Hi everyone, Hope all is good with you. Have now been in Fethiye since June, what joy. Am going back to England in Jan 2012, after new regs come in regarding quarantine rules. My sister's cat Dylan who flew out last Nov via Petair and Thomas Cook needs to return with us,have discovered that getting him to Turkey easy, getting him home not so easy!!! He has all the requirements ie. Rabies vacc & booster, blood tests, pet passport, microchipped basically everything he needs to legally be allowed back into England. Our problem is finding a good pet carrier. Have tried Sumaman twice
  6. Hi Vic801,Just wanted to say, sorry l have not posted before - been away and busy as a bee! l have read your posts, glued to my chair!! You are something else, hats off too you.. you should write a book of your experiences, they really are gripping.Just want to wish you all the luck in the world and keeping my fingers crossed for you with the outcome, although it does sound like it's in the bag. You should also write a book on how to stay sane in troubled times, cause you seem to have managed that big time.. Good luck and keep us all posted.Love Bev xx
  7. Hi Ieezar,A topic very close to my heart (unfortunately)! sounds like your friend needs help and support. Is this due to boyfriend trouble? and how old is she? l ask these questions because things can seem very traumatic when you split with someone you love & feel like life has no purpose anymore.I lost a very dear friend (male) whom l had grown up with and he hanged himself over a girlfriend who made his life a misery.This may have been a cry for help, usually if someone really wants to end their life, there is no warning - they seem happy and then it just happens out of the blue.Tell you
  8. I have also re-read your posts, mainly because at times we love to give help and advice, but want to ensure that we are fully aware of the whole story before we do so - even then we do this with an open mind..having said that Meral's post is very important - nobody would wish to scare you at all, but l agree that you need to be vigilant here.You have only known this man a short while and yes his remarks are alarming.You need to ensure that when you discuss your relationship and its demise, that you have family/friends with you. Our bodies usually tell us when we should be more alert! listen to

    Hi Abi, just a little concerned about you! hope you are ok. lots of love babe xxxx

  10. What a shame that you are still in such an unhappy marriage. Sunny's advice struck a real cord with me, please read her post again.. l understand that you love this man but 'love' is a difficult emotion to define. Having said that it should mean 'happiness, fulfilment, trust and most of all feeling free to live together but also as individuals!please find the strenght to send him home with your blessing. Anyone who can say 'l will tell my family you are dead' is not worth your love and hurt.. as said before. yes it will hurt and you will grieve the loss - but you will recover and be stronger f
  11. That sounds yummy Cleo - will give that one a try with my yorkshire puddings!Bev x
  12. Hi all,I love meat, although l do not eat much of it (red meat that is) l normally stick to chicken and fish, and living by the sea the fish is always a joy as its fresh. I also only eat free range chicken, that way l know its had a good life and is healthy.I know many people say that they cant afford to buy free range/or orgainic, and l agree its not cheap, l am lucky l only have to think about myself so l can be a bit fussy!However in Antalya the meat was not good!! many of our Turkish friends did'nt eat it at all. We tried it and to be honest it was not good. When we went to Fethiye we wer
  13. Thanks KKW,I will be buying that & thanks for the receipe too.. you are obviously a fan of the good old yorkshire Pud!Thank you so much.Bev xx
  14. Vic801,Welcome and just to say what a story! l did have a tear in my eye & a lump in my throat.T looks like a dog to be treasured, which you obviously do.Hope you stay happy together.Bev x
  15. Hi All,As some of you know l am coming to Turkey in June (Yipee) sorry.. My sister is desperate for my homemade yorkshire puddings to accompany a nice roast beef, roast pots and lovely fresh veg & horseradish sauce, god l am now hungry just writing this!!When l was last in Fethiye l stood in Migros looking at the array of flours available and just picked one out (cant remember the name) the pancakes were great but my puds did sort of end up more like flat breads!!Please can you tell me what the best flour (plain flour) would be to make lovely yorkshire puds..Thank you Bev x
  16. Hi Akdag23,Welcome to the forum and sorry to hear that you are having a difficult time. I agree with all the other posts, l also think that you have made your mind up and its time to get out and start living YOUR life again. Don't beat yourself up, we all make mistakes. At least you do not have any childern to consider, that would have been far worse..I am sure that once you are back in your homeland, you can confide in family members, perhaps show them the forum, explain a little about what life has been like for you behind closed doors. Your family will support you through this.When l was
  17. Hi Abi, thank you, yes my hand is much better. The joke of it is the police did not want to know! which shocked me, plus the so called local dog warden is about as much good as a chocolate fire quard! She asked the owner of Lou Lou if she got photo's of the attacking dogs! and their names!!! l actually laughed at that point - we were both covered in blood, can you imagine 'oh excuse me, can l take your picture, and by the way what are your devil dogs called'.. unbelievable.I have sent my comments/concerns to the local council (wont hold my breath) but this could have been a child, they targete
  18. Just an update on Lou Lou the dogy. Still healing but on the mend, wont go out at the moment, but cant really blame her.Had another gift and card today! a lovely mug with the dogs face on it (Ahh)..Plus the owner who is really lovely talked about the whole saga, (have to say l could have done without that as l had just managed to erase it from my few memory cells)!!anyway bless. what a lovely thought.The culprites gave a false address and name so the large yet bill has landed with the poor owners - mind you the community is up in arms and most responsible dog owners are on the look out for the
  19. Hi Dakar, Welcome to the forum, as you have probably noticed, good advice is usually forthcoming.I am of the mind that 'what the hell' dont think about 1-2 years down the line etc.. why dont you just see what happens and in the process have a good time and enjoy yourself.If you find it isn't for you and you are not a match! what have you lost.Turkish men are more foward and yes that would scare the pants off me, but that it just me and it doesn't mean he is not sincere.I believe we all know (most of the time) when something is not right, so just have fun and trust YOUR inner feelings rather th
  20. Hi Spainvet, welcome to the forum.I have just checked out the Hotel you are staying in on Tripadvisor. It has an excellent rating, particularly for families. if you want to read the reviews from other customers, just google TripAdvisor and search for the hotel (it will give you the option to pick all or just Turkey) so you need to look! Sounds like a lot of fun, shame l am to old to be adopted!!!As for the waterparks, again google 'water parks marmaris' and you will be able to see the fun, plently of pictures and its right on the beach! have a fab holiday.Take care Bev xPS look out for the sna
  21. Thanks Sunny. Bev xSam. good luck with the blood tests, l am sure you will be okay.Bev x
  22. Thanks for the shout out Sam,Must say my hand is not too bad today, must have been the chinese doctor on hand to manipulate and smother me in some oil!! l don't care what it was because its done the trick.A lady popped into the centre today and handed me a very large bar of chocolate saying a big thank you for saving her dog. What a nice gesture, mind you l decided to leave the chocolate at work (l'm watching the calories)!!Hope you are feeling better, l noticed a blog saying you felt really bad :sick[1]:Hope the docs have sorted things out for you.take care Bev x
  23. Hi all,I was enjoying a relaxing afternoon at work today, when suddenly there was a terrible noise from outside. I work in a natural fitness centre, right on the seafront. I can see the sea from where l sit and the main door was open, when l went to investigate the noise everything then happened in slow motion! 3 dogs were at my feet, one had another smaller dog in its jaws, l recognised the breed of dog immediately (bull terriers) the smaller dog was screaming, a sound l wont forget for a long time.I didn't think l just jumped in and attempted to yank one of the dogs off, l know l hit it seve
  24. Hi Casba, You sound like a nice person, and nice people do not deserve to be treated badly in my books! You must have good friends, find comfort in them (and the forum). Take their advice, this person is not for you, he has treated you with no respect and put you in danger. That is not love you are feeling. Trust me when you do find it, and you will, you will understand what love really means.Don't be talked round by this person, he obviously has issues, which may stem from his past and time in the military - however this does not excuse his behaviour towards you Casba. Dust yourself off and
