Monday Morning Blog Club 20/02/17
Good morning people and fellow bloggers!
How are you after the weekend? I hope those of you who had your ‘Darlings’ home for half term had fine weather and a good time last week. What did you get up too? My sister shared some photos of her and the family at Sandy Bay and I couldn’t believe how busy the beach was. Okay, so everyone was wrapped up warm, but it was still busy. Did you head to the beach over half term? Or maybe you plan to head there this week?
Recent temperatures here on Zakynthos have been noticeably warmer during the days. And I don’t think it’s rained once! Although judging by the sky today it would be wise for me to bring the washing in pretty pronto!
Thursday was what we call tsikno Pempti, which marks the start of carnival season. Tsikno Pempti translates to smoky Thursday, which probably derives from the tradition of cooking souvlaki sticks (pork kebabs) on the barbeque. So of course, we had to do a little alfresco cooking, which, my husband who is from South Africa lives for.
What did you get up to last week?
The Monday Morning Blog Chat
It didn’t cross my mind that people would be busy with their little ones as it was half term and wouldn’t be able to make the #MMBChat. I did, however, have a nice chat with Anne from Raisie Bay.
This week’s #MMBChat theme is: What is your favourite way to relax? Do you like to be pampered? A manicure or massage maybe? Or do you prefer relaxing time with the family? Which sounds a little like a contradiction in terms! Maybe a weekend away or a walk on your own does it for you?
As always the chat will start on Twitter at 10.15am (UK time). The more the merrier!
To anyone who may like to join in but aren’t sure. Think of the #MMBChat as a virtual coffee morning. The only ‘rule’ is to use the hashtag #MMBChat or #mmbchat to join in as without it keeping up with the chat is tricky.
Now On With The Monday Morning Blog Club 20/02/17
