From today until the end of June I will be based in Athens. There are a couple of weddings and various family matters to take care of this month, so I thought I'd take advantage of the unemployment thing and move out here temporarily . Since 2003, the longest I've spent in Greece in one go has been 16 days, so this is going to be an experience.
I arrived earlier today after a false start (I missed my flight, would you believe it) and I'm happy to report that Athens is as warm as London, which is experiencing a mini heatwave at the moment.
Obviously while I was in London the hot weather was a good thing - now I'm praying for rain as I'm worried that my plants will die. I've left hubby with strict instructions to water them regularly, but I'm not sure I trust him.
Anyway, here I am in Athens, it's bright, it's warm and the sea is only half an hour away. Could be worse, I guess.
