Hi guys! Hope you’re all fine. Here in UK the weather is just perfect and I’m having a really, lovely time.
Last weekend I drove to Reigate to meet up with my friend Darren. He’s got a house on Skopelos but tends to rent it rather than stay in it. The pub where we met sold excellent beer but didn’t sell food, so after D had set off back up to Leeds, I walked into town and got an M&S sandwich which I took back to the pub to eat. Didn’t know Yorgi liked salmon and cucumber!
During the week I drove to Camberley (got lost), to meet up with my oldest (time-wise!) friend, Jackie (we met when we both worked for British Airways or BEA as it was then). Together with hubby, Rob, we drove together up to Wimbledon to attend the Springfield Road Windsor flatmate and friends reunion. This reunion used to take place annually until I, then Liz and Alf moved, coincidentally, to Greece (they live in Tolo). The venue was in Anne and Geoff’s newly aquired, three story, Victorian house. The evening passed all too quickly.
Yesterday, together with Dad, we drove down to Hastings. This time to spent the day with Mel. Mel used to live in the famous Railton Road in Brixton and was a black cab taxi driver. He now spends a lot of his time playing chess. Apart from the time he was obliged to cat sit. The animal escaped and he found himself wondering the streets one evening, calling its name – Pussy!

Hello Corfu!

The drive from Parga to Iggoumenitsa took about an hour and I didn’t have to wait more than 10 minutes for the ferry. The crossing took just over an hour and Mike, Gilly’s husband was waiting for me at Corfu port. Was nursing a bit of a hangover as Eva and I went out Thursday night. We tried to find some Parga nightlife but the place seems to close up around 11pm! How did we still manage to drink too much wine then?

The drive from Corfu town to Mike and Gilly’s place in Episkepsi took about an hour and I just followed Mike. Their house is beautiful, with stunning views all around. In the evening we went out for a lovely meal at a beach taverna. By the way, it seems that when I publish these blogs, there are typos, which aren’t mine. Really weird. Thought I was being careless but have gone back to check several times and the typos are still coming up.
