Great to hear from you again Jackie. I don't do facebook so this is the only place I get to hear about what's going on.

Thanks for the update Jackie. Very wet here today but a bit warmer thank goodness. Just longing for some hot weather!  It's always interesting to see how the beach changes over the year. But could be a long time before it gets back to what it was a few years back. x

Popped into Ag Stefanos this morning, and you can tell Summer is coming with plenty of work going on (though hard to believe it's on it's way, with the cold wet Winter we've been having!)

Plenty of activity today, with cleaning starting at Silver Star and Vasia, stock arriving at Margarita's supermarket, sweeping in Condor, prep work in Elizabeths, painting at Tasty Corner, and Yiannis grill room coming on it leaps and bounds! Think everyone must be getting stuck in, so there will be plenty of time to enjoy Easter festivities without worrying about work!  :)

The 1st direct charters from UK start today arriving in Corfu, so I am sure we will start to see a few hire cars passing though the villages.

Our Easter is 1 week later this year here - being 8th April and Corfu Town will be a very popular area for visitors to stay as a base whilst exploring the island's resorts and villages too.

Today, 25th March we celebrate Greek Independence Day - A Public Holiday around Greece with Parades in many villages and towns.  The weather is rather dull today, blustery and a bit chilly again too, which is a pity for the school children's Parades, however plenty of people will be lining the streets waving the Greek Blue and White flag marking this important date in history.

Well, we've had a week for beautiful weather now, sunny days, and all the spring flowers are blooming, so everywhere looking lovely! Lots of beautiful purple blossom on trees, daisies on the roadsides, and wisteria looking gorgeous!

Bod and I took a little walk along the beach today, and it was lovely to see a lady and 2 young girls playing in the sea!

Ag Stefanos is slowly coming to life....Yiannis new place is looking fab, and Tasty Corner has his signs going up on the wall in front, a sure sign he'll be open soon ,ready to feed us whilst we work!

3 W's looking quite busy this afternoon too, and work going on at Silver Moon, and Nafsika.

Summer will be upon us very soon....even saw my first firefly a few days ago.

Thanks, Jackie. As spring very slowly creeps towards us here in the UK, our thoughts turn more and more to Agios Stefanos and true warmth.

Hope you have a lovely Easter.

Well, Easter celebrations are now over (was a lovely weekend!), so time to start getting ready for Summer!

The weather has been amazing, nice and warm, and lots of sunshine, so perfect for getting businesses prepped.

We were in the village a couple of days ago, and pressure washers were in full flow at Little Prince, and Vasia's shop.

Mistral was getting a clean down, and Nafsika getting some painting work done.

El Greco has had people sat enjoying the sun with a drink every time we pass, 3W's is returning to Summer opening hours next week, and Tasty Corner opens today....Summer's coming!!  8)

Thanks for whetting the appetite with that post. That does it, we're driving down. We haven't been for a couple of years so looking forward to seeing the various changes, and of course old friends.
