Currently in Kos airport waiting for the flight. It gets my vote as the grottiest little airport I have been in for years, even worse than Rhodes


LindainHerriotCountry Report 19 Jun 2018 07:08

It is the morning of our last day, our flight isn’t until 10pm, so we have a late checkout. Then it will be home to the washing machine as well

and welcome from me, Susan ..........

I also have nothing to do with Wales except my OH is half Welsh (his mother), and was born in a nursing home just inside the Welsh border (although the border was moved about 3 years later!). He also went to school in Wales, and his first language was Welsh (while his father was away in WW2).

I'm from Lancashire, live in Canada, and Shaun has also welcomed me with open arms.


LindainHerriotCountry Report 17 Jun 2018 18:22

Good to see you Jem, I hope you are able to get back soon

Welcome to the thread Susan. I am from Yorkshire, currently on holiday in Kos. I have nothing to do with Wales, but Shaun has adopted me


JemimaFawr Report 17 Jun 2018 18:02

Hi Susan :-)

Welcome to the Welsh Thread

I'm Jem from right down the bottom! I live in Carmarthenshire on the coast. Some lovely places here too!

Cute little dog :-)

I have been "AWOL" from here for a little while due to stressful family problems but am hoping to get back into a routine soon

~~~~~~~~~~~ To all my lovely friends :-) :-) :-) <3


Susan Report 17 Jun 2018 08:25

I live in North Wales wouldn't live anywhere else. My morning walk takes me along the coastal path by the River Dee and next to a Castle wouldn't change it for city life.

I think every so many weeks is a strike planned.


LindainHerriotCountry Report 16 Jun 2018 16:22

Oh dear, I didn’t realise the French were at it again. I hope you aren’t delayed, we come back on Tuesday


AnninGlos Report 16 Jun 2018 08:55

Oh Linda we have had weeks like that on holiday, so disappointing and thoughtless..I really think it should be no smoking on patios as well as in rooms.
We are in Spain Shaun, lovely weather for two weeks except for one day of a heavy shower and one evening of thunder storms. Back to UK tomorrow if French traffic control allow us.


LindainHerriotCountry Report 16 Jun 2018 06:35

I am not sure telling a lady she is a spring chicken is quite the correct thing to say Shaun :-0

I am glad that your garden is being sorted so you can spend time out there safely.

It is still sunny here, I am just summoning up the energy to go for another big breakfast.

We may go on the beach again as we now have the German chain smoker from hell in the next door room. We paid extra for a swim up room with private sun beds, but that puts us right next to this dreadful woman. We can’t leave our patio door open because the room fills with foul smelling smoke.
She has every right to smoke herself to death, from the dreadful state of her chest, that obviously won’t be long, but in the meantime we are downwind of her stench. Grr

Bore da / Good morning everyone :-) <3

Good morning Shaun.
I did enjoy the strawberries thank you. We also have the wild ones at the bottom of the garden but I leave those for the wildlife. ;-)


MagicWales Report 13 Jun 2018 08:55

Linda funny you should say that even the neighbours think i am :-0 Didn't we have a lovely time the day we went to Kos :-) on the way back we sat with jack and opened a bottle of cider Ooh arrh, ooh arrh ay, Ooh arrh, ooh arrh ay . :-) :-)

Von did you enjoy your strawberries , up at the cottage we would have plenty of the wild alpine strawberries growing on the walls and rockery they were only little ones but very tasty.

Hope you are all in good fettle or goodish fettle thinking of you all and sending cwtchs whether you wont one or not :-) :-) <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 :-) :-)

They don’t do rock here, it will have to be Greek Delight. That is the same as Turkish delight, but don’t tell the Greeks that
