In my last blog I mentioned that I hadn’t been out much lately but on Saturday I was in the mood for socialising with friends and enjoying a few glasses of wine. So at 6.30pm I kicked off the evening at my local Taverna, Vangeli’s. I had a couple of glasses of wine and a bite to eat whilst catching up with all the local gossip. Everyone was relaying where they were and what they were doing when the earthquake struck the Saturday before! Continue reading

Working With Nature
After spending my three week holiday living the outdoor life, admiring the views, enjoying all the places I’ve been to and really appreciating nature – I am itching to start “working with nature” again.

Happiness in the UK, Spain and of course, Crete!
I am home again after my two week break in the UK and Spain. Although I had a packed schedule whilst in the UK, I felt well rested and pleased with all that I achieved.
I spent my first day in the UK shopping for all the bits and pieces I can’t get in Crete, then the evening relaxing with my sister Karen and her husband Mike, whom I always stay with when in the UK.
On Friday night I went out with my friend Angela, for a few glasses of quality wine (the only thing I really miss in Crete – apart from my daughters, family and friends of course!) at The John Millington in Cheadle Hulme. Continue reading
