Re: Just wanted to say Hello

We moved here in October and were freezing despite the previous owners assuring us it was a lovely warm house and the heating worked well, liars! However getting a wood burning Somba was the answer and we spent the rest of the shortish winter (it was longer this year than most years apparently) love...

Re: Large stone flower troughs

Thanks Phil,
I've bought a stone trough, screwed it to the floor and half filled it with lots of rocks! Let's see him lift that. If he does he'll certainly get a hernia, and I hope it's painful!
Thanks

Large stone flower troughs

Hi All, Does anyone know where you can buy largish stone flower troughs from? It must be very heavy.

Yellow arrows on the road

Ok guys, I've noticed yellow arrows on the road before but several have just appeared on the road through our village of Paidohori. Some 'appear' to be directional as they appear at junctions and point ahead but one just points to the grass verge on the Pemonia to Paidohori road!!! :P

Re: Passport Photos .

my husband had his taken close to the town hall in Chania on Kydonia. If you stand opposite the town hall looking at it, the shop was about 50m further on. They were very quick and reasonable.
