Hello everyone, and especially if your name is Sophia and you are celebrating your name day today, Kronia Polla.

Well, September is whizzing by for sure! I had the most fantastic August with my family and miss them so much, but I have to say that I have been so busy since they left that I have not had time to dwell on them being so far away. Best of all, since my visit to a chiropractor, the terrible pain I suffered throughout June, July and most of August, has gone, and I am so relieved to be able to work again without popping the paracetamol every 4 hours.

Vrahassi is quiet, but that is normal. The fish shop that opened a couple of weeks ago, seems to be closed, or is it just that I don't get up early enough and they have sold out by 9 a.m. and gone back to bed?

Will Yannis close the coffee shop? Some say 'yes' at the end of September. We shall have to wait and see.

The 27th of September is world tourism day, and there is to be an Arts and Craft exhibition, with stalls for handicrafts etc at Agios Nikolaos, near the lake. I am to create a little music - if all goes to plan.

There is also going to be a Doggie Day home made cakes etc to raise money for stray animals. That will be on the 1st October (I think) again in Agios Nikolaos. 'How much is that Doggie in the Window' being practiced daily. Hopefully on both occasions my friend Julie (the flute) will perform with me.

Then there is to be a gathering of writers. On Friday the 7th October Lou Duro, editor of the Chronicles newspaper, and yours truly, invite all those interested in forming a Writers' Circle, to meet at 8 p.m. in the Dali Bar in Anopolis. Do ring me for directions, or if you would like a lift, I have room for 3 people. If the location is a big problem, then ring me to discuss an alternative venue. We plan to meet once a month to discuss each other's work etc. It will be a very informal meeting of poets, and if you are a poet you will know what that means!

Well, now I am going to bed to relax and read Jane Holland's new poetry book, Boudicca & Co, which I have just downloaded onto my Kindle at a price of about one pound something. That's why I love Kindle, it is instant, you hear of a book one day; you have it in your bed the next!

I did hob nob a bit during the summer (see photo) - but I'm not entering politics just yet!

  • Enjoy the weekend readers, and I promise to get back into the swing of blogging now that I am feeling soooooooooooo much better.
Love Jane x
