Posts Tagged ‘May Day’

Cor blimey! Where is this year going? It’s nearly the end of March, a quarter of the year has just vanished…and only 121 days ’til London Olympics.

Before then, the swallows have to arrive, then the start of friends arriving, we have to squeeze in Easter, Big Week and Orthodox Easter including the Grand National, May Day, then tour operator repettes and start of the summer season in Corfu, the subsequent charter flights, then the arrival of the fire flies, Ol’ queenie’s diamond jubilee, the wonderful tennis, boat race, it just comes and it comes!

Phew, fantastic!

Best enjoy it all, before we raise the union jack to support and cheer our British Athletes!  Good luck to them all in their Olympic quests.

We’ll be watching the big screens, not in the luxury of a superyacht at Canary or Swan Wharf, more likely in the company of friends either at the Hawaii pool bar or down at Spyros taverna on Pelekas beach, so much cooler and relaxed! See you there!

Cornflowers are my favourite, the blue gems featured in my glorious wedding bouquet. Nick’s been reminding me…19 years ago! Tempus fugit.
