Perking the pansies
I am not sure if many of u are following the Perking the Pansies (and surviving the expats of Turkey) blog regarding the exploits of the latest two expat inhabitants of Yali.
Personally I get a real kick from their daily dispatches on the trials and tribulations of starting a fresh and it’s only a manner of time before the other expats get upset, as the lads take no prisoners..
Personally i cannot wait to them geting a round to reviewing the various eating houses/soup kitchens in Yali before the manure really hits the fan.

Interested what u other folks in TLF land think?

I my view its great stuff, a real breath of fresh air, keep it going lads!:20:

I love the way he writes a bit like a gay Bridget Jones - I'm sure some names have been changed as I think I recognised the drinker in Yali.

Surely Bridget Jones was gay, i remember the film " Bridget Jones does Hollywood ", and the sequel " Bridget Jones at Cheltenham Ladies College " compulsory there methinks.

It all seemed huge fun but a bit perverse to me

Hello all. I just wanted to say thank you very much for the thumbs up, very kind indeed. Apologies for not coming on here often, setting up home and sorting out the essentials has been great fun but a tad time consuming. We've gleaned an awful lot of practical information from previous posts, so again, thank you.

We are loving the Turkish experience (the good and the bad), it really is a fascinating and seductive place.

Iyi Bayramlar!

Jack

I've just had my morning fix of the blog, dried my eyes now, lol.

Whoa, the lads are venturing into writing about the bars in Yalikavak.

Stripping Barman post!!! Hmmm, I can't think where they mean, but an interesting evening, lol.

Mods, would this thread do better in a forum where access by children may be restricted. I make absolutely no complaint regarding an interesting, entertaining and thought provoking blog, but feel that due to it's flirtation with " unseemly " ( for children ) references to promiscuous behaviour, it may be better served in the back room, no pun intended.

Love the blog Jack , my concern was brought home to me with my ref to Bridget Jones.

Thanks, Steve.

I have no books to read at the moment am fed up with facebook and hate I m a celebrity on tv so aftter EE and Corrie I will try to start it from the beginning. Very witty funny and sometimes long words for me but I am sure it will be a good read and we can relate it to our Turkish Experience of living there.

great stuff..
when i saw the thread title i thought it was another gardening thing..and only started to look because pansies are my favourite flower they all have little faces on.
i wonder how the pure little pansy gained such a reputation.

Just finished reading it so now only have to keep up with the new items. It's stared my day of with loads of laughter. They'd be great friends but you'd have to stop reading the blog! If they are as funny in person then it would be worth it.
