(Photos today were taken by Neil at The Olive Tree, Symi.) Very little got done yesterday following on from my birthday bash. It all started out well, with a cup of tea at the re-opened Olive Tree, in the sun, on the terrace. I had ham and salad on a whole-wheat muffin, and Neil had […]

It’s yesterday once more over here on Symi

I am getting into the habit of writing these blogs the day before they are posted and it seems to be suiting me. It means I am half a day late with any exciting news though, but as I don’t often have exciting news that should not be a problem. Actually, there is some mildly […]

I am actually writing this on Tuesday. There have been military jets passing by, church bells ringing and, down in Yialos, the parade for Greek Independence Day. Now there is thunder rumbling about and the skies are darkening. Not so on Sunday when we walked down to the bay at St Vasilis and back. As […]

First of all, before we set off, can we get the spelling sorted? I have two maps in front of me; one names the area we are walking to as Ag. Vassilios, the other as Agiou Vasiliou (in the genitive, fine, but with only one s) and, in the Greek, Αγ. Βασίλειος, again with one […]

It feels like everyone is getting ready for the summer season now. The weather has been warm, hot even, and calm for the past few days and when I have been out and about I have seen lots of businesses painting up and preparing. Neil has painted up his card racks and boxes, and has […]

Thursday afternoon, around half three, I thought I’d go for a stroll down the road, get me out of the house for a while, and see what Pedi is like n a sunny March afternoon. I didn’t take a coat, I didn’t need one. I saw this field down near Pedi with a cat asleep […]

“Passport fees for British nationals overseas reduced by 35%” so says Gov.UK. This is handy and timely news, and I assume that the fees are also payable by British Nationals overseas who have not been reduced by exactly 35%? (Should the sentence be the other way around or is it just me? “Passport fees reduced […]

A quick trip to Rhodes

I’ve started reading through the proof copy of Village View which seemed to take an age to arrive from the printers, so may not have the copies in the shop in April as first hoped. I need to read it, check it, send the minor changes to Allan, get the new print ready, upload it […]
