EXCERPT FROM “SUNBEAMS FROM THE HEART”:
"That Christmas, when Tessa returned to the small town where her great aunt and uncle had spent most of their lives, the rooftops were white with snow. Shop windows glinted with decorations of reds and greens and golds and silvers. A Christmas tree with twinkling lights, shimmering garlands and a flashing star on top stood beside the town hall entrance. Outside, huddled together on the pavement, a small group of warmly wrapped people sung old familiar carols. But for Tessa it would be a bleak Christmas..."

SCARCITY OF AFFORDABLE & DECENT RENTALS A CRISIS

 

Farewell good friends!

Sorry I haven’t posted for quite a while. We are having to move – from one rental apartment to another that is. We were only given 40 days’ notice (be sure to always check your lease thoroughly – the lawyers for the landlord found a loophole to avoid the 90 days’ notice mentioned in the lease!).

In Nassau, Bahamas, like many places around the world, rental prices have gone sky high and there is a scarcity of affordable and decent rental apartments. Airbnb plays a big part in this, shoving the long-term rental prices up and tying up the market for the average Bahamian.

We have to get rid of a lot of personal stuff before we move, including some of my books. I’ve donated two boxes of books to the Bahamas Humane Society Thrift Shop, so at least I know that they will still be appreciated.

I will be back on this blog again as soon as we are settled – or maybe before that if I find any time! In the meantime, if anyone reading this knows of affordable furnished apartments in the west (Nassau, Bahamas), please message me. Thanks!
