Under the weather ...

Skiathian is feeling a little under the weather today ...

Nothing to do with the humidity, caused by the clouds above. Just feeling dog tired, hope things improve shortly. I have an invitation to go out with the Scandies later this evening. Stig Pelle and Marti, may see Skiathian go face down in his meze, at this rate ...

Lets hope an afternoon nap, followed by a tepid shower (water company permitting) recharges, my flat batteries ...

It's cooler than of late, there is a breeze, and the intermittent cloud cover, is giving the island a grey day feel, on what is a 90% blue sky day.

The perfect option would be a hammock, and a good book. However replacement good books, are hard to find, many now rather forlorn, and threadbare, as so many now use e-readers. Can't see many leaving their trusty e-reader on the shelf or bar, for the next incumbents ...

Neither is an e-reader, good at balancing over the eyes, for that all important afternoon nap.

This Friday I am supposed to go to a concert, let's hope they do not have an effects Microphone. Or the sound of me snoring, May disrupt the ambience of the evening.

Sleepless in Skiathos zzz ....

Later update:

I watched a lovely smooth landing by Monarch Airlines G-MONK undertaking the MON5394 service from LGW. Sadly no camera but great to watch this afternoon ...

The Achladies set are back in town, James Fox, Laurence Fox, & Billie Piper are back on the rock. They flew in with the 'Duchess of Angeliki' this afternoon. Somewhat surprised at the red carpet, the actors were trying to keep a low profile, until they realised it was not for them.

Swiftly ushered through arrivals, with just a waft of expensive perfume, and a wave, as she stepped into a waiting Mercedes with blacked out windows - 'Pinkygirl' is currently residing on her favourite sun lounger, at the Angeliki, looking out to sea, over a very large cocktail - Welcome back Marg - enjoy your holiday ...

20:00hrs T minus 90 minutes, until Skiathian raises a glass with the Norwegian branch of the Boomerang club, Stig Pelle and Marti here on neutral territory ...
