Its fire time ...

No not in the hills - the house ...

Its cold, the temperatures have dropped and there is snow in the air. Time to take a more than a passing interest in all things heat, as the chill of winter starts to bite.

After all this morning, a cold one, the islands electricity was cut for essential maintenance. Brrrr

I have a nice pile of logs, but if the cold continues they will be quickly reduced as we try to keep warm. The car has been pressed into transport for beach scavenging, and is host to a pile of logs in the boot, somewhat sandy and damp!

The island businesses do not help. Its been six weeks now trying to buy a log burner on the ring road, and i am as far as a brochure or a chinese imported unit - what happened to "Made in Greece"

My scenario ...............

Hello - Do you sell ...
... Yes
Good - Can i buy one ...
... No we may have some next week (or the week after - or the month after)
Can i order one ...
Go away we are on the internet updating our facebook page ...

I do try to support island business, but tomorrow it's going to be "Get a quote from Athens day" Watch this space for further developments ...

Off to the beach, wood required back later ...
