Just carrying on a little from yesterday. I'm lucky to be part of a close family even if we all live thousands of miles apart. I know they have my back and our greek family will always be welcomed by their Kiwi and Australian relatives, and vice-versa.
My greek daughters get on just as well with their downunder cousins as they do with their greek cousins. Amazing really.
We haven't seen any of the downunder family for the last few years and at last this year we will be having visitors. Poros will be invaded in September. Now we just have to survive this summer heat.
We will be slaughtering vowels all over the island, laughing loudly and drinking lots of icy g and ts.
Thanks to you all for your mercy parcels. Arnotts crackers, pineapple lumps, marmite and vegemite. Years ago we got boxes of good wine brought over from Athens at Xmas, a present from Australia, NZ calendars to last us all through the year. There's one hanging above the computer right now with a picture of NZ waterfalls. T-shirts, hats, hoodies. Everyone loves to show off in kiwi clothing. Grandson George wears a Maori pendant round his neck, has done for about the last ten years. All welcome presents.
Thanks Susi for your generous parcels. Thanks to cousin Jenny for the crossword magazines.
And so much help in times of need. Occh, but you're a fine bunch. I'll spit on you individually when I see you.
NZ cookery books, books set in Australia and NZ. NZ Womens Weekly magazines. On and on.
Just wanted to write another thank you.
