Indian summer

I like extending the summer by heading off to sunnier climes in September, and usually returning to the UK you feel a distinct autumnal chill. Not so this time, It’s been as hot here as it has been in Greece! What’s going on? I’ve been sunbathing today in the garden in October!

Greece was gorgeous. We stayed in a stone cottage half way up a mountain with stunning views across the Messinian bay. In the morning we were greeted by the sound of donkeys braying, cockerels crowing and the bell from the village church chiming. The sea was warm, the wine slipped down like nectar and with no telly or internet it felt a world apart. Bliss.

After last year’s chemo-enforced staycation it has been wonderful to be able to get away three times this year. Back to the grind tomorrow but you know what they say, best way to beat the back-to-work blues – book another holiday! Hmmm, where to next?
