Weather gorgeous today but that pool is seriously green. Takes some cleaning that.

Yeah and either Nafsica has emptied the pool or the water has gone a funny colour. :)

Dirty lense today.

Well my mate and his wife came up for a social distancing fire-pit drink and catch-up and it was excellent. Burnt all the wood and drank much of the booze. We had a good time. I wouldn't say I was the worst for wear but its only now that I'm starting to feel human again ;D. Not young anymore see.

How dead does the old village look today. No cars on the road, nobody about. Eerie.

I have no idea who you're chatting about.

Thank you Karen, Winkie and Jimbo but I'm okay. Just having a few off days what with this weather, the damn virus and the selling of my dads house and all that that entails.

You wouldn't believe how much stuff two people can accumulate when living in the same house for 57 years. It's taken my younger sister and I over 10 days to clear out the house, shed and greenhouse which included 6 appointed trips to the waste recycling site and 2 "large item" council collections. The stuff they kept. My dad used to say "if it doesn't eat or drink don't throw it away as you may need it". The thing is I used to criticise my dad for it but I find I do the same. Strange.   

On a brighter note I met my best mate today, socially distanced of course, and we've decided to meet in our garden this Saturday (going to be dry apparently) and light the fire pit and have a few sherberts.  :D

Yesterday ended our 96 hours of non-stop rain, ranging from drizzle to torrential. Rained again today and more due tomorrow and Thursday. Throw in the continued nightmare of lockdown and its a struggle to keep any degree of optimism, energy and motivation.

The optimism of marketing departments knows no bounds.

I had a pretty blue email from TUI this morning, complete with pictures of Corfu. In large print is said:

"It's only 272 days until your holiday. Don't leave it too late to book one of our fabulous excursions!"

It's very nice inside. Been there in October.

It is. Ate in last September due to high winds rather than the cold but it was lovely.

I don't think the laundrette is there anymore. I certainly don't recall seeing it last Sept when staying at Rose Gardens.

Either way round, the pound-euro rate is dismal at present. It got worse today as the "government" announced that it might renege on an international treaty it had freely signed.

Go Boris ;)

Beachcomer - though I do think they need to vary the menu - it's been much the same since it opened in 2007.
Olympia - it's had it's ups and downs but has been consistently good the last couple of years
Zorbas - mainly for the atmosphere to be honest
Manthos - old and new

We do like Yiannis Grill and loved The Sunset when it was open - do miss that place.

We love Mason or geordie as he's also known. Difficult to understand though sometimes after a few drinks. ;)
