“Miss Kathy’s” last full day in Cyprus


This could quite possibly be the last visit our friend Kathy will make to Cyprus before she heads off back to UK and then onwards to pastures new. These are yesterday's memories: We went to Lady's Mile Beach in the vain hope we may catch the Red Arrows in flight practising their rolls over the …

We should have gone to Lidl…


So, just how did we get from this: to this? You may well ask 😀 I'm blaming it well and truly on my other half, Clement.... What started out as a pleasant drive over to the east side of Limassol to collect something, we saw as we were driving along our glorified dual carriageway (referred …
