Quality time ...

Christmas eve is upon us ...

I am spending some quality time with SWMBO & Junior. Like many who live on the island, you can feel the claustrophobia at Christmas time. The exodus from the islands to the mainland, can make it a very quiet time on the island.

This year it been great to enjoy the seasonal activities, the bazaar, the lights, the Christmas village. The island has really made an effort this year. Likewise in Volos on the mainland, much effort in what are very tough times in Greece.

You know that SWMBO has had a tough few months. The last week she had some very upsetting news, we have again, some very tough times ahead to deal with.

This in mind, we had planned for some time, for SWMBO, to see her mother. Unfortunately the second leg of the flights, had priced us out, by the time we got the results.

So we have taken up the offer to see friends for Christmas ...

Junior is having a great time, with our friends dog. We await the tooth fairy, as we do not know if the Skiathos one, has roaming coverage. SWMBO is enjoying the sights and looking in the shops.

Me I had a great time surprising a great friend of the blog, and 'Skiathos mate' yesterday, on his craziest working day of the year ...

So for a few days Skiathian, is going to be doing something different, and spending time with friends, and his family. Before SWMBO starts the treatment ...

Enjoy your Christmas wherever you are, I hope it's a great one.

Happy Christmas, One and all ...

  1. A happy Christmas to you, Kamila and Junior. We are having a quiet Christmas (very quiet) over on Skopelos, but enjoying the sunshine while it lasts. Keep on keeping on and we shall do likewise!
