Back to work

Back to work

Here I am back to work after a break. I’m afraid the blog might become rather mundane and more of a weather watch with limited photos – for obvious reasons. I’m not a news site, and I don’t go in for gossip and conjecture, so for the foreseeable future, the posts you see may only be about what we are doing at home which, for me, is mainly writing and, after my break, getting back to my books. Similarly, the images will probably only be of the same view, but I will try and vary them with updates about how our limited plant collection is going in the courtyard. With much writing to catch up on, I’ve decided not to spend so much time looking at Facebook and other social media. Far too much speculation for my comfort, though I’ll still check into the parts of it that I trust for reliable news updates, both international and local. I get my Greek news from http://www.ekathimerini.com/ as it is published in English and thus I can be more accurate in my reading than if I translated the Greek version and my world news from the Guardian. If anyone wants to stay in touch more personally, you can always use the symidream email which is right down at the bottom of this page. The only other thing to add right now is that we’re both fit and well and doing as we are told. Oh, and it’s good to have you back and reading!
