This is the start of this year's feedback thread ~ 12 days to go & counting down! This photo, taken in the Agustera bar, expresses perfectly how happy Paul & I are in Skiathos (With Pru & Nigel, friends we meet out there every year.)
Three more sleeps ... I think I'd better get on with the packing tomorrow - quick panic! Friends who are out on the same flight (9am Thomas Cook from Manchester) reported they'd finished theirs last weekend ~ swots! (Wrong word, but you know what I mean.) Paul (my husband) doesn't seem to know about packing, he just expects his clothes to magically arrive in Koukounaries all by themselves! How funny would it be if they didn't?
It will be wonderful to get away from this awful rain. The weather forecast looks great for the weekend ~ and hopefully beyond. Will report from 'the other side' (WiFi permitting!)
Awaiting your feed back from the "other side" Kate. My phone company, EE, are saying that from 15 June, data roamimg free in the EU. Have never had a a wifi problem in Skiathos but free data roaming .......
Everything's ready Tre, next to the cases - but I have still to do the actual putting in & weighing. I think we'll have to reduce the piles - it looks an awful lot! (Mind you, we have got 20 kg each - more than usual.) I wish I was the type of person who has a minimalist, everything co-ordinates, holiday wardrobe always ready to sling in a case. I'm always hedging my bets ~ "be prepared"! Tho' the weather forecast looks great for the next 7 days - wall to wall sunshine. It's just the following week ~ I can't stand being cold!
Oooh Dennis ~ you men!!! Paul's having a rest while I slave away!!!
Far be it for me to be grumpy or critical. BUT.... Two days ago you got there - you started your feedback BEFORE you got there, to get our saliva going, now, after two days, NOTHING. Far be it for me to be grumpy or critical. BUT.... what's happening? Supposed to be thunder, lightning, mayhem today and yet not a word. And don't give us that old "WIFI not working" excuse - you've got free roaming, so come on, get roaming! Is the beach still there? Is it nice and warm? Is there beer? Gyros?
Teresa and I will be there in less than 20 days and still no information from you, you're supposed to be the advance party. So ADVANCE!!!!
I'm getting my holiday haircut tomorrow, all being well, and here I am with not a word from you of what it's like out there!
We isolate ourselves, so that when we get back together, no one is missing
