Have had two quiet days around the house while we prepare for our friends, John and Sue, arriving on Saturday evening in Larnaca. We are going across to pick them up. They came out for a week last November and must have liked it, because now they're back again. No doubt we shall have some days out with them as well as days around the pool and on the beach.
The weather continues hot and dry, temperatures in the low/mid 30s during the day and low 20s at night. Very nice to be out and about in.
Our builder has been in and today he finished the main bathroom. He's done a fantastic job and been so tidy. He even vacuumed and mopped the floors after he'd finished where there had been dust from the tile cutting. We're very pleased with the result, much more modern and nice and light. The two shower heads are enormous and give a great amount of water. The shower cubicle in this bathroom replaces a bath which no one used much. The design is a Turkish one which incorporates a bench at one end of the tray which can be used to sit on whilst showering or (my idea) as a handy rest for getting down to your toes!!!! Also useful for small children to sit on while mum showers them off. Anyway, we think our guests will approve of the new facility. Hope so anyway. My photos don't do it justice, but you'll get the idea.
They are starting on our ensuite bathroom on Wednesday. Looking forward to getting that complete too.
So, after an hour or so around the pool and a quick swim, we set off for Larnaca about 530. Arrived just after 7 and John and Sue were already out. The flight was early and they had just about walked straight through. We got home and had a light supper -- they'd been the victim of the new BA i.e no food or drink - and then sat out on the terrace talking over some wine. Looking forward to the days ahead
