Kalo Mina - Νοέμβριος

Good Month to the fans of the blog, καλό μήνα σε όλους ...

Its always a day of memories for me, not least to the friends, neighbours, and the expats of Skiathos, who did so much to help SWMBO in her time of need. Is it really two years since that afternoon in the King and Queen ...

So much has happened to her since that day, we are deeply indebted to our island friends ...

Today is the 'Day of the dead' in Poland, where they remember those that have passed, and visit the cemeteries. Leaving them looking like this ...

Anyone who visits the Skiathos town cemetery after dark, will have seen something similar ...

My learned friend also advises that its the first day of the Skiathos bonfire season, expect smog descending from the hills ...

So today, feeling rather tired after a sleepless night, and not the best start to the month. but almost the same as three years ago. Only this time after a very rare visit to the doctor, has resulted in a series of tests and a cough that would probably shatter glass at 100m ...

It all dates back to a case of Skiathos flu, which hit me like a sledgehammer on 17th March 2013 after the best Apokries party ever. Since then the chest has never been the same again. I knew it was not a good idea to go out last night ...

However Junior was told she was the prettiest pirate ever ...

Anyone who read yesterdays post may like to know the intestine cake, really was quite good. This morning the green face cake, was equally delicious.

Memories ...

PS Today I tried to pay some money into an account in cash - Unbelievably difficult, I thought cash was king. Funds withdrawn, by a friend from a heavily vandalised ATM, where the front screen had been smashed in by a disgruntled customer.
Bring on the 12 sided coin, I know where I am going with them ...
