Pressure points ...

If applied correctly seem to resolve problems ...

I have been banging on desks, cajouling, encouraging, and finally unleashed the secret weapon - SWMBO.

Our neighbour, has suddenly seen the light, and so have we this morning. The triffid of a bouganvillia, that has been a bane of our lives, has been cut back hard by the council. There is,a promise that it will be finally removed in October.

It's damaged our house, which equates to a Hellenic shrug. So we need a new chimney pipe - but you would need one anyway ...

The next episode in street wars will be much more explosive, when my neighbour arrives from the mainland later today. Hopefully we can keep out of that argument ...

Living on Skiathos, can require the skills of a diplomat ...

Late update:

Thunderstorms crossing the island since 17:00hrs. We have been allowed the luxury of rain, lightning flashing across the sky. Pink lighting bolts, electric blue flashes that illuminate the skyline. Rain in big droplets that refreshes, but not enough to dampen. Then steady rain that washes the street.

Tonight a 'warm' glass of red, the first in ages, and a take away from my favourite taverna, where rainwater is flowing down the street;

22:37 The occasional rumble of thunder, a refreshing wind, the breeze sending the curtains horizontal, out into the street. An aircon free night in prospect as we secure the shutters ...
