    Weather looks good today, so some of todays drinking will be outside.

    Rest day but food and drink consumption indicates a run is a good idea.

    More beach stuff, crazy golf and shopping I imagine

    Warm enough for the beach?

    Bloody dull here. Bloody wet too.

    On this day, the 27th of October 1992, I was diagnosed with Leukaemia.
    30 years on and I haven't been shot yet.

    Its between 20 and 25 during the day, so we're in jeans/t shirt or shorts with a quick access hoodie during the day, but because its just so European you've got everything from people in scarves, woolly hats and puffa jackets to t shirts and shorts.

    night time is hoodie/jeans/light jacket.

    no rain which is mega but high up where we are the is a breeze.

    its v v v pretty though, immaculate, surprisingly busy but not overly busy, if you know what I mean.

    Sunday was a right off due to tennis, running around, then arvo travel to that there Heathrow, stayed overnight there, Monday getting here, yesterday exploring, this morning just a sense if "aaaaaah. holiday".

    Ciao and good morning from Santorini.

    its bleedin' lovely.


    *Slightly* envious.

    There was a plan back in about 1996, proposed by a couple of friends, to arrange a group booking for about a dozen of us altogether to spend the New Year of 2000 on Santorini. Never did get organised - I think we left it too late to get the accommodation needed. ☹️

    Looks very nice MF.

    House is looking progressively emptier today as the movers shift more stuff out. We're getting ahead of the game at least. TV dinners on the last remaining sofa this evening then off and away tomorrow.

    Morning folks,
    Why do the MFs have a bog roll next to the SG style breakfast in the sun? I hope they took the garage MF with them as I still haven't checked on him.
    Good news Stevo, hope all goes smoothly.
    Raising a coffee to Pinno's 29th anniversary, I'll have a drink later as it's Wednesday.

    Morning. Marking stuff today. Fun times! Still, had a nice meal out with some of my department and an ex colleague last night in Greenwich. Tempted to go for a hair cut later. Giddy stuff!

    Hope the move goes smoothly Stevo. I’ll pop round at the weekend for a cuppa 😉

    Got distracted by the MF's photo and forgot to add The Daily Blah Blah Blah...

    It was actually a *really* nice day for a change, made the mandatory drive into town and wait a lot more pleasant. Also took myself off to the Physio for a ritual beating, then a detour to the gadget shop to splash a chunk of cash on some fancy new workshop stuff. Hopefully will figure out how to use it properly and make some decent cabinetry, since getting any built to order seems an impossible task at the moment.

    Dropped car off for mechanic to give it a thorough check over and service.

    New bike frame has arrived. Have to find time and parts to finish putting it together. :-)

    Grazie all!

    Can thoroughly recommend it if you have a week spare - any longer I feel would drag, but a week you can do everything and still chilll and reeeelax.
