Last days of winter ...

Spring is officially just a few days away.

This morning dawned with blue skies and a promise of spring sunshine.We were not to be dissapointed, as it has become a beautiful warm day.

The windows are open in the house and warm - Yes warm air is coming in.

Earlier - I made a quick trip up to the supermarket.There is a ferry strike today, and again tomorrow. Much to my surprise, it appears they took delivery yesterday (Sunday) as the loading bay was full and the shelves were being stocked with fresh supplies.

Later after breakfast, a trip to the paralia with junior, to enjoy the swings and slides. The warm sunshine had drawn out all the Greek children, with their parents to the activity area.
It must now be officially warm enough for them as locals, however parents and children alike were wearing body warmers, coats and large thick jumpers.
Those of us from north of the alps, were removing layers, for very good reason as our own internal thermometers were reaching critical level ...

So no ferry today, but the fastcat is working, lawyers on strike later this week -otherwise all systems normal as work has started in earnest with preparations for summer ...
