Menopausal Minnie

So, I’ve been back from my holiday for a while, but I’ll be honest it’s been a bit of a roller-coaster. My emotions have been all over the place and I’ve felt like a teenager trapped in a grown woman’s body. If crying was an Olympic sport, I would most certainly have won gold! My…

Santorini summer day 8 and 9

Sorry for the lack of a blog yesterday. We had an early start for a visit to beautiful Oia. More about that later… Wednesday was an incredible day for sport, with England being in the first world semi final for 28 years. Even though the outcome was incredibly disapointing, it is a massive achievement, none…

Santorini summer day 7

Santorini is the most beautiful place. Yesterday I woke up in time to see the sunrise from behind the mountain and then watched in awe, yet again, as the sunset over the caldera. Nature is indeed beautiful. Often the most natural things are. It’s so nice to have the time to just watch the wonders…

Santorini summer day 6

Decisions, decisions…. To say we find it difficult to make decisions on holiday is an understatement to say the least. We have a little daily routine that involves breakfast, beach, suncream; Chill out/blog/read/have a little sleep, swim in the sea; Change for lunch, decide where to go, eat and drink; Back to the beach, more…

Santorini summer: Day 5

Yesterday for some reason we were all more tired than usual. Maybe just being a Sunday makes you immediatley more lethargic. Or maybe it was the excitement and possibly alcohol from the night before. Although my own consumption is greatly reduced due to my lightweightness! The beach was far busier as the families were out…

Santorini Summer day 4

Well here we are, another beautiful day in sunny Santorini. Yesterday felt a little busier, yet still incredibly chilled. So much so, that I nearly fell asleep whilst watching football, in Kelly’s Bar. That would have just been rude, so I took myself off for a walk and a little bit of retail therapy. I…

Santorini Summer Day 3

I am so chilled right now. Obviously that fact I am on holiday is playing a massive part, however the fact I had such a good nights sleep is definately the biggest reason. We (my hubby and I) haven’t slept properly for weeks. Either waking too early, or being too hot or just not able…

Santorini summer day 2

Well I said my goal was to do nothing and we managed it well. There was lots of lounging around on a sunbed,in the shade of a lovely palm unbrella. Lots of swimming in the sea, or should I say floating around. Of course I shreiked like a girl when I first got in and…
