Inspired ...

Not really ...

But Alexandros Papadiamantis - Fey Folk, a tale from Skiathos is a very nice read ...

We have been out and about, but are really just marking time until SWMBO gets the all important results back from the doctor. Then we will learn about the next steps from the oncologist. Hopefully she will 'officially' be passed fit to travel soon.

Until then we remain at 'Base camp Athens' until further notice ...

We did get some great news, that we will have visitors in the next few days, from Skiathos. This has cheered up SWMBO considerably, as did yesterdays visit to a lovely french cafe near Syntagma square.

Like the Christmas turkey, It seems we need to fatten her up for Christmas, as she is missing a few kilos ...

In the mean time we have done some more window shopping. We visited Marks and Spencer, and did more window shopping, at some other famous UK brand stores - Before the effort became too much for SWMBO.

We visited a lovely local grill house, last night. It more than surpassed expectations, serving amazing succulent meat from the grill - A family business and seemed to have great support from the local community. A bargain night out by Skiathos standards ...

Tonight I cooked a mushroom risotto, hearty autumn food - for a mild night in Athens.

Good luck to everyone back on Skiathos, taking part in the Panagia Kounistra festival tomorrow. I wish I could be there with you ...
