Rough weekend ...

Not only with the weather ...

Junior brought us home a present on Thursday from school. Not the usual drawings and paintings. The rather nasty Norovirus, which has been doing the rounds.

Since 2am on Friday, it's been quite a chastening experience. SWMBO and me taking turns with Mop and bucket, and any other receptacle to hand. We were planning on spring cleaning the house. Now it seems we are rather more advanced with the project, but will now have to start again.

So far it seems, the rest of the house has escaped the virus, but we shall see. Just hope we all stay clear of the dreaded flu ...

I watched some football for a change - Good to see Chelsea dish out a thrashing to Spurs at the bridge, on Saturday evening. I managed to watch a couple of films for once - Rush and The Wolf of Wall Street. Both are well worth watching ...

It's been a cool damp weekend, in fact Sunday was breezy and rather chilly, so we had the woodburner lit all afternoon. It also aided the cleaning and drying of clothes.

This morning has again been rather chilly, with showers passing through. The locals saying that winter has returned. I met up with a few Greek friends on my travels. Nikos at the spring, telling me who lives where, from our elevated vantage point. Drizzle and low cloud making the view a little difficult at times.

Friends from down the island, up the hill, and over the lake, all at a very busy Carrefour this morning ...

A parcel to collect from the post office, and the all important bills to pay. A quick view of Apollon Hellas arriving here at Skiathos (No sign of any dents, from its bump into 'Skopelos harbour' recently)

Its been a busy morning ...

17:00: Been quite a day! Have been out again for more fresh supplies, fresh potatoes. Have made up a beetroot salad, to go with Chicken - Junior is hungry again, and negotiating TV access rights for this evening. I fancy another film from our large catalogue ...

Raining again - but I do not care ...
