What’s the time?
Wednesday was all rather odd. I mentioned the brief power cut around 6.15 and the high winds that were with us until late evening. The temperature was right down too, but we’re used to that. The thing was, we were happily working away and pottering around when I thought it was time to prepare lunch. My computer told me it was 12.30, but my phone said it was 13.30. The oversized kitchen clock we have had for years also chose that day to stop working, so that was no help as it was stuck at midday with its second-hand twitching in some kind of death throe. I had to contact Jenine to ask the time and found out that the phones were off. Something to do with power cut and wind maybe. It all came right in the end.
During the day, I had a call from the shipping office in Rhodes or one of them. Because of the wind, the Blue Star came in on Wednesday on its way down but wasn’t able to come in on the way back up. So, she was ringing to let me know my piano would not arrive until Friday, which I thought was a good service. It became an excellent one when she also told me the name of the driver who would deliver it, using his first name (as we would do here), so I knew who to expect a call from. I am wondering if the Ikea order will also be onboard as that’s been waiting a long time now and surely they must have a full container or whatever they wait for before dispatching. Friday afternoon could see a lot of lifting from the Olive Tree drop-off point to the house, and the weekend might see a lot of putting together and finally rearranging the study, apart from the curtains and light fitting. On the other hand, it may not arrive on that boat at all. It’s Symi life: be prepared for anything.
I’ll put up some Symi photos as usual for tomorrow, but they, like today’s, will be older ones and random, but that’s all I can do right now.
