Flowers, Photos and ........

Wednesday - it has been mild here over the past few days so I have really not done an awful lot other than enjoy the heady days of April before starting my full time work in May. I am on holiday too..... well at least for another week.....

We have cleared out the fireplace at home as really there is no point thinking about lighting a fire when its 27c outside during the daytime......and even in the cool of the evenings at around 17c - if we just zap the air con on warm temps for half an hour it does surfice.......

However with the mild temperatures we do have to consider that those nasty blighters the Mozzies which are out and about so much earlier than normal so this did mean I washed the mozzzie net and it is now above the main bedroom bed as just the other night my fingers were being bitten alive as there was as always even after all these years my fresh foreign blood to be had........I may have been here almost 35 years but they just love me still.......


The mild weather has brought out some earlier than normal flowers - oh April is just an amazing month to be here on the island.

With the direct flights supported by the independent airlines, not just from UK but from other European destinations and via Athens which also has many internal flights onto the island every day, it is wonderful to see non main line tourism wanting to know more about the island, the culture, history and to embrace it's appeal - this time of the season its not all about beaches and bars but about where to go, see, visit and just to chill and enjoy our amazing April weather..... for me it's the colours, the smells and just the quirkiness which makes this island appealing off main season. The locals have time to sit and welcome you and to also enjoy with you  - just so you can also have a laid back holiday...... Great friends are made during this time of the year...........

Easter for us is almost here....... I will be updating with the Easter preparations from our village house next week........
