Hot Chocolate ...

Happy Birthday - That was the plan ...

So SWMBO sent her friend in Volos, a birthday present and a card. That was on 20th January 2016, yes we are talking two years ago.

It arrived back return to sender, yesterday morning. After a two year voyage to Volos and back.


The Greek postman, apparently cannot read the Greek letter G (Γ) so has sent it back. It looks like it made it to the apartment block, but not into the letterbox for the apartment.

Quite where its been for the last two years, remains a mystery. A miracle that it found its way back to us after the time that the packet has been on its epic journey.

Sadly even the chocolate is now one year out of date. Someone had opened, and taken a look inside the packet, during the last two years to see what was within. Probably forwarding it on, once they had checked the date on the box.

Seems the chocolate, was not to everyone's taste 🤔 ...

At least its made its way home, so there must be some benefit, following the privatisation of the Greek Post Office. German efficiency ...

Skiathos friends - Don't loose hope for those missing Christmas cards and presents. Who knows perhaps even my long lost bathroom mirror, remains in the back of a van somewhere on the continent.

It was tracked to Skiathos however the courier probably did not have any credit on their mobile to call me, so sent it back ...

Best news of the day:  'A suspected poacher has been mauled to death and eaten by a pack of lions near a national park in South Africa'
Result! - A long overdue home win for the lions ...

Later Update:

Pancakes, Strawberries, Nutella, Whipped cream.
That just about sums it up ...

  1. Many years ago, I sent a postcard back to my office and it got there. The next year, they told me to take it and post it again, I did and it got there, with a slightly heavier postmark. Same again the next two years, the postmark eventually almost completely obliterating any sign of a stamp. Then they switched to Euros stamps and I stopped being a cheapskate.
