Hello again 😀 Well, the QR code arrived at 10.10, my bags were already packed (in double-quick time -I’m getting quite good at it!) and I was asleep by about 11pm. Wide awake and excited at 5.30am ... not helped by a friendly email from Jet2 reminding me to wear a face mask throughout! My heart lurched when I saw who it was from, as I thought some sudden travel ban may have started overnight 😱
Today, I’m travelling with our youngest son and his wife - their second time to the island. Next Friday we’ll be joined by his older brother and his wife for their first-ever Skiathos visit. I hope they like it ... they normally do ski holidays or road trips in the States. We’ll see.
It’s going to be a poignant visit, as it’s a memorial for Paul - we will be joined by three very good friends from the UK Paul and I originally met on the island and with whom we’ve had many happy times over the years. I feel very touched that they have decided to join with us to remember my wonderful husband.
I’m very pleased that I made the solo trip (that I haven’t finished telling you about) last month. It’s made this one easier for me ... not sure how my boys will be, but it’s time to go and make more memories ...
