I love going out on Sundays but when it is the last Sunday before schools start one should stay in and get prepared physically and mentally for another difficult school term.
It is difficult to think of going back to work and not think of the increase in the ticket prices. I used to pay 24 euros a month to commute to work and now I will have to pay 36 euros!That's quite a lot. And if we add to that that we are getting a smaller salary than we got on February 2010 by 20 euros a month and everything goes up I think things are getting really too bad!
the Seychelles and we were pen friends for ages. We in fact met once while she was studying in Greece. Then the usual thing that happens between people;we stopped writing (I think it was my fault, I had become so lazy at letter writing at some point) and we lost contact.But I always remembered her and it was one of the first names I looked up in facebook and yes, I found her again. We don't write but we skype from time to time and it is so great.
Also today a sea glass friend Frieda appeared in our sea glass site again after a long time and it was so great to hear from her again. I don't know of many people collecting sea glass in Greece and it was great to meet Frieda who is a Dutch living on the beautiful Skiathos island. Isn't there a time when you have met someone for a short while but feel nice about him/her and miss him/her if he/she is not around? Well that's how I felt about Frieda and there she is with us in the sea glass world again.And what a coincidence that we found out her student son lives in the same neighbourhood as I do!Isn't this such a small world?That might give us the chance to meet again.
Today we watched a lovely film on TV. "The Englishman who went up a hill but came down a mountain" is the story of two chartographers who arrive in a small Welsh village to count the height of the hill in the area which the villagers consider a mountain. It is a funny real story of the 1917s and I love the way a small community can "move mountains"!Also it was great listening to the Welsh language.
"Are you sure there is no English blood in you?" was a frequent question asked in the film and it is something I have asked myself many a time!
