There are 3 hours left of May and I am feeling very guilty for abandoning my blog. It has been a busy month, which has grazed 4 countries; spending too little time in each. It has however been a very productive month - My small Bodrum town house feels much bigger - and so it should - it now has an extra bathroom and an impressive sun room, neither of which were even an idea on the 1st of May.
These are the builder's photos, I didn't have chance to take any. Furnishings will have to wait until September but with the backdrop of light blue plumbago, fragrant melissa, orange bougainvillea and multi coloured lantana, it's going to be a joy to relax in whatever I choose.
Jake had 6 days to enjoy the new room and for him it was a revelation. He can monitor the activities of the local cats without having to risk their sharp claws.
My 10 days in Sweden were also quite fruitful. Apart from the job I was paid to do, I managed to try out a new water colour style and paint a few cards. I was very grateful for the full length blinds in my room - they were ideal for hanging my work.
And now we are back in Greece. Ferries are not Jake's favourite mode of transport and we had to take 3, but he was so good that complete strangers came up to us to compliment him on his behaviour.
|On board - on the way to Kos.|
