escape .......

One of the things that really keeps you going during the busiest moments is the thought of the holiday booked for early September. After a busy summer is not the right time to trawl through the myriad of web sites offering tempting last minute breaks to here or there, so, for the past few years we have behaved in a sensible manner & booked the week's break well in advance. So tomorrow, the time has finally arrived. We are off. Returning to corfu once more.

I came to Corfu fairly late. I had fallen in love with the island after having read Gerrald Durrell's book, My Family and Other Animals whilst still at school. l have not been disappointed. To me, l can still catch a glimpse of the boy & his dog racing through the dark olives grows growing on the steep slopes that fall down into the azure blue of the crystal clear sea.

So, for the next 7 days, a whole week in fact, we will be deserting the Yorkshire coast & scanning, instead, the barren coastline of Albania from our terrace whilst gargling with ouzo & swatting wasps!

Have a lovely time. I'm sure you will. I was also an avid reader of Gerrald Durrell when at school. They were lovely books.

I'm seethingly jealous but I deduce that you have really earned your Corfu break. Have a nice one and clean yer boots lass!

Oh lucky you, but I know how hard you have worked and how much you have earned a break.

Still not booked ours - Cesspit is busy through out all of September and has booking right through to the New Year. . . Plus we have to find someone to look after the animals.

You must alomost be back now -hope you had a fab time. I love the North East corner of Corfu - still relatively unspoilt.

We taped the t.v version of that about a year or two ago. Sheer madness but fun.

We didn't have a hol this summer and here are you not only having been to Sally's place but off again. But I suppose the summer is very hectic and a lot of work so you need the rest.
