Good Morning peeps!
Sorry I am a bit late in posting this morning. I overslept. We have banned the cat from the bedroom because he wants to play (or eat) at 3 am and we have had many disturbed nights. It is not easy to sleep in this heat, so it was great to have a good night's sleep without kitty disturbance and we overslept! (The joys of being retired!)
So without further ado, here is my colourful postcard:
It is my first postcard from Greece. It was sent by Despoina (what a lyrical name). She also used special stamps which are always a joy to the eye:
She wrote that the bar code on the right hand stamp would bring up Greek Christmas carols if scanned with QR. Of course I'm not that phone savvy and have no idea how to do that, but it's a nice idea (Whatsapp is the only thing I can manage... I desperately need a 12 yr old to teach me how to use my phone!).
This week has not been very eventful. Graham continues to slog away on the stairway. He is cleaning the rafters after the plasterer has been, and has also painted the part that is plastered.
Our house is built on a steep incline so the door you see on the photo is the street entrance. The stairs go down four floors. At the bottom is another entrance where the fields start.
The plasterer Has not been this week as his dad was very seriously ill in hospital. He will come back on Monday to continue the neverending stairway, and then he has to do my craftroom. That is very urgent as far as I am concerned. I can't do a thing! All my stuff is once more packed away. I thought it was only for a couple of days.... Please hurry back plasterer!
I will leave you with something funny I say this week:
You can substitute it with craft supplies I'm sure.
I used to do Lakeland orders in the days before they had so many shops (there was only one in Windemere in the early days). My colleagues at work all wanted something too and I ended up with orders over 300 pounds sterling. It would arrive in a box the size of a coffin! (For those who are not familiar with Lakeland, they are a firm that specialize in quality cook and bakeware and kitchen ware and nowadays a selection of speciality foods).
That's it for today. I'm going to link up with Annie at Friday Smiles and with Virginia at Rocking your World Friday.
Wishing you all lots of smiles this coming week,
