The postman ...

Parcel for you Ioannis ...

So off to the post office, with a spring in my step.
Has juniors missing package finally arrived (Day 28)

The postmen say - Your parcel has arrived!
Excellent - Bravo - Joy all round.

Er thats not it, thats something else, I say ...
Look posted 28th October, here 4th November

What is it then they say?
I will have to go home and check - and stagger towards the door ...

Home and time to open it ...

What can it be ?

A box of Polystyrene foam and carpet underlay!

Hang on a minute ...

Its emergency rations sent from a foreign land ...


Thank you Steve (LancasterkebabMan) for the beer, Mint Balls and Kendal Mint cake.  Will look forward to testing this at altitude in the forthcoming weeks. The bottled delicacies will be saved for a later date. Probably next month the annual Birthday & Christmas combination ...

Thanks too, Malcolm (Educator) for the reading material, again will enjoy this by the fireside, along with the book from summer.

Truly touched and amazed, by friends of the blog's generosity over the last year. The parcels and packets have made all the difference, to our 'life on a small island in the aegean'.

You all know who you are, thanks again to you too ...

Footnote:
Happy Guy Fawkes night, tad breezy here on the rock for fireworks tonight ...

  1. We have changed history tonight the beaver scouts made a houses of parliament out of cardboard boxes for the beaver handy craft competition last week. Tonight we have blown it up with fireworks and burnt it down at the beaver scout meeting.... bet some might wish they could do that for real here and in Greece.
