Late news from the sleeping newsroom ...

Well because it is late, and I have been out most of the day ...

How are you recovering from the Christmas excess? Was it a Mince pie too far? or did you Bridge over the Christmas pud on the longest gastronomic gut busting holiday of the year?

Well we are enjoying our first proper Christmas holiday ...

This morning I was watching the sun rise on a freezing beach.
Yesterday we were with friends, and I was wine waiter for the day. I looked on amazed at a 6am 200 yard queue to grab clothing in a sale - Why on earth ?
The day before that we had a great family time, walking and had some fun in the pub
The day before that, I went to see my Auntie and went to church, with SWMBO & Junior. SWMBO cooked us a Polish banquet ...


Maybe ...

You get the general idea - meanwhile ...

New flights:

Lufthansa's budget little brother Eurowings, will be flying from Stuttgart (Baden-Württemberg) airport to Skiathos in 2017.

Power disruption:

Due to the bad weather (Surely not in Skiathos) the power is off in Kalivia. Of course if the power is off - This is not much use to you. But when you get back from trying to start the generator - (Wishing you had serviced it back in the summer). At least you will know the reason why ...

PS it should be fixed by 23:00hrs - 'not sure what day' ...

So batten down the hatches, secure those shutters, against the Siberian blast. Chuck another log into the woodburner, or if you are on UK holidays try not to laugh at those, who still on the rock. Some who may well be shivering, and wondering, why has it gone dark, 'no one told me about this' and whats wrong with the aircon?

Back to my holiday break, and looking forward, to a rather nice Merlot, after a couple of dry days

Well I have drunk a lot of coffee today so sleep may not come easy anyway ...
