Well thats me and Louise officially homeless and living with her mother. :lol:

Moved out of oor wee hoos on friday and into mamas place.Then i took all our belonging down to Sussex on Monday to put them on the delivery lorry.....nice journey on my own.

So far its all good , the home cooking is exellent not that louise is a bad cook just that mama is great with the old pots and pans thing. Plus this living out of a box and case thing is a nightmare.....brings back memories of a former life..oooooooh scary.
So far our Thomas Cook flight time has changed by a hour, just found out today via email, just as well i checked.

So the Scottish invasion is still on target..... Happy days

Jim :lol:

Well Scotland has well and truelly taken over Istron. Well thats my opinion...but what the hell i am biased.

Gettin closer to the one year on the island and so far its all we wanted and hoped it would be. We have made many new friends as well as cementing the old ones....RIC you know you love me....dont you!

Still working for the same Greek fun fun travelling around the island maintaining petrol stations, great in the summer but not so good in the winter....its cold up in the mountains, but being Scottish its always shorts and tee shirts all year round.....AYE RITE!!!.

Been caught up in the old Greek red tape bureaucracy...more fun when we bought the new car, but got throught it..despite me threatening to kill some people in the queue at the local Police station in Irapetra. We have learned our lesson .....Just!
The current economic climate has effected us has dropped off a wee bit but hoping for a change soon.

The year ended with a real high.....i am now a grandad! my first grandson was born on the 15th December 2008 in Glasgow, ive been to see him...3 flights but worth every penny and the 10 days i spent with him will live with me forever,and hopefully my daughter will be bringing him here in June ....cant wait!

Hoopy days, up the celts and may god bless you and all who sail in you.
