In a rush

Clearly, I’m not the best person to ask what day of the week it is. Having thought Wednesday was Tuesday I did wonder why we had water coming in and it usually only does that on a Monday, Wednesday and Friday, but then again, the weather has been all over the place and perhaps the man who turns on the mains wasn’t working on Monday but was on… And so on. Anyway….

No great news today. I am busy working on another story, we’ve not had a storm for a couple of days which makes a change and…? Oh yes. I had a lovely email from the Village Hotel about mother’s booking. We’re arriving from Athens on the Blue Star at 5.30 in the morning, and they have offered to come and pick us up, which is very kind and saves me all kinds of hassle. It does seem odd sending email to a place 100 yards away, but its that time of year and I don’t like to disturb people when they are not at work.

The photos are from a quick walk to Pedi the other day. How long has that bus stop been there? Probably months or even a year, I just don’t notice these things in the same way as I apparently don’t notice what day of the week it is.
