Kalo Mina - Fevruários ...

Kalo Mina - Good Month - Fevruários - February ...

Good morning from Skiathos, Where it is another cool grey start to the month.
Kαλό μήνα σε ολους - Good Month to all ...

Have been out in the chill of Papadamatis street this morning. One benefit of going into the bakery is that it is warm, secondly you come out clutching a warm loaf of bread to keep the fingers warm.

Maniolis had some lovely fresh clementines, and some earthy new potatoes. They went in the bag, potatoes destined to accompany the bunny - Yes, I have a rabbit for the pot, and quite a big one. Looks like bunny stew may be on the cards for a few days ...

I have been told off by junior, as we have no strawberries. The innocence of youth, there are some lovely imported strawberries here at the moment. Thursday was a school holiday, so an afternoon spent doing learning activities justified a reward. Today as its Saturday of course is not a school day - So where are the strawberries dad ! ...

February is just 28 days long, that means only 28 days left, for island residents, to register to vote in the Mayor and European elections at the town hall. Its a simple process, best if you take a Greek friend, as some advise they have run into difficulties.

I needed my passport and residents permit. Others say you only need the passport. However if you go in the town hall, turn right, there are two ladies sitting on the right. On the left is the office, where you register to vote. This was the office where a year or so ago the OAED used for islanders to register for social security payments.

So just 20 'working days' left to get down to the town hall, and register if you want to take part.

It seems there will be seven candidates for the election, first round. I am reliably informed that at least one more of the candidates, will be inviting 'English speakers' for a presentation next month. Will let you know more in due course ...

Just 17 days till the start of the Apollon Hellas ferry on Monday 17th, as Hellenic restart their service.

Just 14 days until you realise you 'forgot' that card, for the love of your life ...

Renovation work taking place all around at the moment, hopefully money from the airport being put to good use. The sound of active hammers, and cement mixers is good for the island economy ...

Later update:

Saddle of Mr Bunny braised in red wine, with prunes - Tasted very good indeed ...
