I shall not bore everyone with details, not nice though.
The infection in my gum started invading rest of my body.
I'm hoping to get back into action and catch up with everyone in the next couple of days.
Thank you for your kind comments.

We produce a concert at Christmas in the local theatre for free, in fact all our concerts are free, so we are self funded except the local council(Dimos) pay for the theatre and the advertising.
Everyone loves a bargain, especially books,as English books are expensive here. The bazaars are always full of ex-pats looking for books and a bargain...

You've already seen some, the 3 above were saved by Bethan in April when an old lady threw them in a culvert.
Virginia tries, with her band of helpers to capture females and have them neutered, she also organises adoptions so some of them leave Crete and find homes in Europe. Remember, these are street cats originally, scavenging from bins. I've seen some dreadful sights when they've been in fights and are scarred.
Anyway, I'll keep you informed on how she does but at the moment it seems she is desperately in need of many more helpers.
Thank goodness I take the photos.

So, lets see
1 Clothes Shop...
Difficult in Crete, so I generally have spending sprees in Britain, don't care really as long as I like the style, since I've left supermarket clothes have become really fashionable. Favourite used to be Monsoon.
2 Furniture Shop...
Second hand, not too keen on modern. Geoff drove all our bits from Cornwall so I don't have to go through the stress of buying over here. Probably nip to Ikea in Athens for comfy sofa though.
Organic dark chocolate
As we sailed here from Cornwall, we were lucky to be able to visit many beautiful cities in different seasons. Palma on Majorca in April was lovely. Grenada in Spain in winter, Barcelona, I could go on........
Varied, favorites are Joni Mitchell, Van Morrison, Welsh Male Voice Choirs
7 TV Series...
We have free to view Arab Sat. so receive mostly American programs, Greys Anatomy is a favourite.
Memorable and funny, watch them when I want to laugh or cry, Saving Grace, As Good as it gets and The Piano.
9 Workout (ha ha!)...
Walking Jose, just started yoga and swimming.
I'm in Greece!!!! Baklava!!!!!!!!!!
Got to be black, strong, ground and good.
I hereby tag bindu (Transient Lives), Lynn( Getting my feet wet) and Soulbrush

Finally, caught a glimpse of the sea again, but this time it's the Lybian Sea...
And there they were, my aunt Susan and her husband Paul. They were staying in Agia Galini. We spent a lovely day with them, catching up on family news, they became grandparents for the first time 8 weeks ago so we looked at photos.
Sue, Paul and Geoff discussing the flowers,
It was really nice spending time with them, but, the day flew by and very soon it was time for the long journey back, just as the sun was setting over Agia Galini.
