Day 10 Guess what!! another few hours of catching the rays and reading. Walked into Chlorakas village and said a little prayer for dad in the church. Just what the Dr ordered. Watched Trump's inauguration. Think he means business but let's see if he can walk the walk and not just talk the talk!!!! Ending up with TV and a little drink 🍷🍷

Day 2 A day of relaxing and catching up. bliss
Day 1 Abs and Hannah drove me to Luton airport early morning; traffic on M1 dreadful, glad I'm not a commuter!! Easy jet flight great and soon arrived to Paphos met by mum. Always lovely coming home to Cyprus. After a quick unpack and gin and tonic, we walked over to a new cafe in the corner for a bite to eat; only people there but then it is winter. Relaxed with TV; sobbed watching the movie "You Before Me".
