So onto the airport with flights on time all hunky dory. As we were queueing at the flight gate there were staff looking around hand luggage to see if anyone was oversized with their bags picking them out to have them measured and if oversized they had to go into the hold at a cost of about £40 a bag one guy I saw had bags about the same size as me and failed the test but fortunately they didn't spot mine secreted as much out of sight as possible. One Greek woman had a blazing row with staff when they made her put her stuff into the hold. You really don't have any excuse as the sizes are published in the booking documents so if you get caught it's best to pay up and shut up. We have bought two new hand luggage bags of the correct size to return with for cheaper than half of one bag going into the hold.

Just finally I thought the people who read this in other parts of the world might like to see how austere Yorkshire looks at this time of year but also the beautiful snowdrops in the woodland in our home village of Yokefleet Yorkshire. Not a hint of greenery down our main street if you discount the grass. I apologise for the picture quality but they were taken on my phone and the lens is always exposed and as such gets rather grubby. Anyway, with luck and good management next weeks blog should be coming from sunny Lefkas again as we arrive "Home" next Tuesday in time for Tony's Birthday (Saint David's day for the Taffs out there).
There ends a full on week of visits, babysitting working etc. Just like to wish my best mate luck with his op which may be next week but looks like it's been postponed yet again but that's the NHS for you. But by the time we go home we'll have had a couple of great evening with them both which we really have appreciated as a break from things.
