Wednesday - 1st week back syndrome

Back into routine at work

Treading water at home. Just lets get through tot he weekend and have time for some serious sorting out.


  • Laundry all complete
  • Pickling and preserving all complete
  • Bedding needs changing (get on with it, lazy girl)
  • Found free online Greek lessons (trying to sound positive in my slothful week)
  • Almost printed off new wodge of shopping lists (i favour the tick the item method of writing lists) for the weekend but found my printer was gone, No broken, gone. We are moving office on Friday.
  • Helped my son fix his malfunctioning laptop, thanks kittens, using the tried and tested methodology of my work IT team - turn it off and on again.

Tuesday - back in the swing

Got to get back on track, we know what can happen otherwise


  • Updated the monthly budget plan
  • Submitted utilities ratings and found my son uses no power at all when we are away!
  • Found a Greek Accountant for us.

Must try harder............

My default position has changed

I came back from my month away:

2 kg lighter
£850 left in the budget


Once upon a time this could not have happened. And I didn't try. I ate, and drank, what I wanted and spent as required. Which to me indicates real deep seated change.

I am a woman in control, and even better, its on auto.

Go Lizzie!

I am back form the land of no internet!

Well it has internet but at the house we have decided to remain totally free from 21st century intrusions. No landline, no TV/satellite system and no internet.Some wifi at restaurants but seemed a bit antisocial to use it!

No being able to access the news was great though. Life is a lot less depressing when you dont know how mad the world has become.

We brought back 40 kilo of luggage (maximum amount allowed) but of the more unconventional type. Bags of veg from my neighbours. We are in agricultural land. Olive oil, prepared olives (three types) raki. Some many things and all from their land. We had to eat the joint of goat and the the sheeps cheese when we were there but the other gifts came back with us.


Tomorrow we will be pickling peppers, bottling olives and so forth. Lovely

I have 192 blog posts to read, and I only subscribe to about 10 blogs. All good!
