Oh To Be In...Somewhere WARM

Tomorrow's forecast for our parish is nine degrees and raining. (Anyone telling me it's balmy as always in Kalives is welcome to come and feel my frozen fingers around their NECK.)

Yours eking out the heating oil

Clio,

You will be pleased to know that it is not warm in Kalyves. I'm sitting here in my winter woollies, considering putting the heating on.

I was wearing my winter coat in Hania at lunchtime and there were tourists wandering around in shorts & t-shirts!

We've just had a glorious week so I am not prepared to moan about one day. I was walking round Chania this afternoon in a very lightweight coat and I was much too hot. Last Sunday I sat outside all afternoon with friends eating the traditional Paschal meal, thanks to Sue at Cretan corner. I've experienced Paschas in northern Greece on exactly the same weekend when we sat inside with the fire on watching it snow outside. Tomorrow Saturday it is predicted to be cold and wet BUT next week is predicted to be sunny all week with the temperature increasing all week up to 27 C by next Friday. Another couple of weeks and I will be complaining that it is too hot so enjoy a bit of cool while you can.

Far be it from me to murmur something about some people having better insulation than others...

Today's rain is excellent for the plants and trees too! Tomorrow, as has been mentioned, we're back to sunshine 8)
Someday is now : )

I was walking around Xania with Margarita yesterday, feeling quite comfortable in jeans and short-sleeved summer shirt over a thin T-shirt. Sitting in the sun outside the yacht club café sometime after 17:00 I was beginning to feel overheated.

Just as I would never suggest that all women have faulty internal thermostats in my experience. One of the fun things in life is sitting in the sun outside a café in shorts and a T-shirt watching Greek women clutching their fur coats to their throats.

Two of you, eh? There's obviously something about walking around Chania which causes British gents of a certain age to suffer from hot flushes. Hope you're taking the tablets.....

He does make it sound very posh doesn't he? The number of tablets I take, Clio, I would rattle if it weren't for the copious quantities of sound insulation.

It only sounds posh to those who've never seen the Yacht Club. I'd have a small wager that you've been there yourself, Warwick, let alone seen it and it is a nice place to enjoy the sun.

If it's the one I think it is, at the very end of the old harbour next to where they had the old boats, then you would lose your wager. To paraphrase the words of Peter Sellers in "Balham, Gateway to the South", "Time has passed by this ancient quarter, so did I". I do agree that "posh" is not a word I would use.

Glad I emphasised small wager (and avoided placing the bet).
