Calendars, and Islanders - Date for the diary ...

Its been a busy day for me ...

Tonight is Juniors 'school celebration' for Christmas, So the children have been given the day off to prepare for their evening performance.

My Invitation ...
Mums are busy preparing cakes and biscuits for the after show party. It will be interesting again to see if the local widows are in the first two rows again, and make a swift exit for the buffet like last year with 10 minutes to go ...

Earlier this year the trick at the last get together (OXI Day), was to stack your plate, and run for home. These were mums who had children at the school, but filled the larder - for reasons of their own ...

Junior is battling another chesty cough, we have been to see our excellent paediatrician at the Skiathos health centre. Hopefully we will be 'fit to perform' later. Likewise we cannot afford for SWMBO to pick up an infection before she sees the Doctor again ...

Calendars - Its that time of year ...
