So, I went to Greece and had a lovely time, and now I'm glad I'm back to my flat in London. Life's wonderful. If only I could afford (financially and time-wise) a trip to the USA to see my boys and Rachel, then it would have been just perfect. Unfortunately the circumstances, at the moment, stand that this would be impossible. Boo-hoooooooo.
So here are my holiday news:
- I went to two islands. Before going to Spetses my sister suggested we go to our cousins who have a house at Chios. Chios is an island famous for its mastic, the substance that makes chewing gum. So, as you can understand, I was chewing all day. The island is very beautiful and the beaches were magnificent. We were staying at a village called Vessa, where all the houses were made of stone, unlike the people who were really kind and smiling. It was a lovely holiday...

- On the 6th of August I went to Spetses, where my mom welcomed me with open arms. I have missed her house so much, and esp. the view from her veranda, where every morning we would have breakfast, greek coffee and hours of small-talk. Really relaxing.
- The two nights with the full moon were just breathtaking. I couldn't believe how close the moon was, how big it looked. When it peaked out of the beautiful houses we all screamed. That time, I wished that next year I would see this full moon with someone special ;) Not that my family is not special, but you know what I mean, hehe.Click here for the slideshow of Spetses.
One night as we were going home my mom we stumbled on a little kitty cat. He was very thin and dirty, all black and with two beautiful blue eyes. Immediately and with no second thoughts we picked him up and we took him home to give him milk. The next day we were told by neighbours that he was taken from his mother and that he had a brother as well. The same night we found his brother. His brother is a gorgeous ginger cat with the same beautiful blue eyes. We took him in too. Then, after not much thought, my mother decided to keep them! As you remember, her cat died in the winter, so that made her feel really happy again. She called the ginger cat Aris and I called the black one Zikos (Zee-kos). They are two little mischievious adorable creatures.
That's Zikos on the left and Aris below right. Aris was wounded when we found him, but we have heeled him now and he is very healthy!
So that's it basically. I have been away from blogland for quite sometime, but I will visit your blogs as soon as I can. I have so many things to do and so many others that should be done, but in the first instance I will pop round and say hi to you all.
