Eva gave me a good helping of warm fakes so I went back to eat them. Petra was not around. The kitchen was quiet. I watched Grantchester which was very good.

The night was cooler, the door was open so the odd mosquito popped in to say hi. We were up at the usual time and it certainly felt cooler as the wind was back from the north.… Read the rest

Full Moon

Petra was hiding somewhere so it was Eva who filled up my container with the remainder of the runner beans and potatoes. They needed reheating but there was a lot to eat. I didn’t feel much like salad after for some reason. I watched only YouTube videos but no shorts for a change. All interesting stuff.… Read the rest

Discombobulated

The kitchen was like the Marie Celeste as the personnel were at the bar relaxing. Petra came immediately to give me some runner beans with a few potatoes which were hot so didn’t require reheating. I went straight back to enjoy them. I watched an episode of DCI Banks which ended the current investigation. It was not the ending I was expecting.… Read the rest

Could Have Been Worse

A mixture of comestibles including potatoes, vlita and rice/spinach. More than I could manage in one sitting. Accompanied by Lewis followed by Perry Mason and then bed.

The door was open, the night around 24ºC with some gentle distant thunder. The elephants were dancing on the decking as it’s never a good idea to leave the sisters out together at night if they get bored.… Read the rest

Weather Approaching

Spinach and rice was on offer from Petra and it was still hot so didn’t require warming up! I added some nutritional yeast to give it a bit of a cheesy flavour and it was quickly devoured. With some salad, it was enough. I watched an episode of Heartbeat still with Nick Berry as the lead.… Read the rest

Surprise Visitors

The box meal was pasta and Neapolitan Sauce but there was plenty of it and I had loads of salad to go with it. I watched The Professionals who got involved in a scam to flush out someone purporting to sell a secret government truth agent which of course was a scam in itself. It was all good harmless fun.… Read the rest

Summer Returns

It was a little later by the time I got to the kitchen as I’d been held up by an ongoing support request from Inter Sport. Now happily resolved. The offering of the day was Bamies, AKA Ladies Fingers with some long, stringy chips to go with the fingers. I viewed an episode of Wycliffe where he is recovering from being shot.… Read the rest

Hottest Day in September

Petra handed me some oven potatoes together with a container with a whole beetroot and some sliced garlic. With a salad, it was very nice. I watched the second part of The Tower followed by the continuing saga of the epic YouTube video from the night before.

The night and the morning were warm with hardly a breath of air.… Read the rest

It was peas, potatoes and fartychokes for supper. Sometimes there are no fartichokes so I just get lots of the accompaniment. There was some salad and the bread from Anatoli too.

I watched The Saint who, whilst out fishing in the fog, was nearly run down by a speeding boat carrying illegal immigrants. As expected Simon Templar brought the miscreants to justice in one way or another.… Read the rest

Strange Weather

I spoke briefly to Anna, who will be leaving tomorrow for Athens and a security job until she finds something more suitable. Petra then presented me with my container which had Gigantes and oven potatoes filling it up nicely. This, together with some salad was my evening meal accompanied by an episode of The Gentle Touch, a London-based police drama with a female lead detective whose husband died in the line of duty.… Read the rest

Washing Machine

Petra presented me with a copious portion of Fakes which I heated up and ate slowly and deliberately. They were very good indeed. I followed this with a salad whilst engaging in a little police excitement with the Drone Cops who were dealing with the usual stolen cars as well as Cannabis on an industrial scale.… Read the rest

ZERO

Gemista with loads of extra potatoes accompanied by Hercule solving a very interesting double-murder, this time by a woman. Janne and Erica were out picking up Janne’s sister from the airport. It was past bedtime when they returned.

It seemed to be quiet when I woke up but there was some wind and it was cool enough to warrant a polo shirt with the collar up as well as a thin fleece.… Read the rest

Very Windy

There were many fingerless ladies once more as I had a full container to myself. My viewing choices were Frost and As Time Goes By. The wind continued to blow outside and it was cool enough with the door left open all night.

The wind was still blowing hard in the morning so there was slight hesitation on my part to leap from my pit.… Read the rest

Lazy Sunday

Fakes! But then you already knew that if you read yesterday’s blog entry. What did I watch? Good question, in fact it was a YouTube evening of longer presentations on a non-trivial nature.

The night passed effortlessly to reveal a warm and initially fairly still morning with starry sky. The moon has not been with us for a few days.… Read the rest

Happy Birthday Ursula!

Eva provided me with spinach and rice which was plentiful and very good. Petra was on some important mission.

The night and morning were warm and there was a light breeze which was also warm even though it was from the north. Just the same two vans were in the same positions as the day before.… Read the rest

PM 2.5

The peas and potatoes were very good together with a salad I constructed myself. I watched the first episode of Endeavour which was very good. The previous one I saw was the pilot. This was followed by a revisit of Luther which I’d watched before. I need to work out how much of it I’ve already seen to continue on from there.… Read the rest

All Go!

Rice and spinach was yesterday’s culinary delight and very nice it was too. It was followed by a large salad including the beetroot from the evening before. Very nice too. I suspect the kitchen will be packing up soon so I will have to organise myself to buy and prepare food again! As I ate, I watched another episode of Grantchester which I nearly always enjoy.… Read the rest

Shorter Walks

Pasta and the beans from the other night so I was stuffed. It was a little later anyway as I’d been at the neighbours’ for tea beforehand. I joined the WestMidlands Constabulary’s Drone Unit for another adventure in thwarting the bad guys from above.

There was still some wind as I walked across the field but nothing like as much as during the previous days.… Read the rest

Windy?

Last night was fart pellets AKA chickpeas which were in an interesting sauce. I had a seeded loaf I knew would not last the course as I ate all of it. The same price as a brown but a lot less loaf for your money and not very whole meal into the bargain. I watched ‘Life On Mars’ which was very good.… Read the rest

Oops!

I staggered back from the kitchen under the weight of Gigantes but had to wait before eating as I’d made a huge mistake with the Pot. Having carefully washed and put the rice into the pan and then into the pot, I put on the lid but then forgot to set the pot going. Only when I was almost ready to serve the dogs their evening meal did I discover the error.… Read the rest

Winter Website

It was spaghetti with Neapolitan sauce and salad for supper. Petra seemed apologetic when she told me, as usually the offering is more interesting. I watched the first episode of The Tower which I understand it intriguing as well as gripping. I was a little later to bed as I fell asleep…

There was a stronger wind and plenty of darkness as I stepped out onto the decking.… Read the rest

SFD

I enjoyed some very pleasant fassolakia with potatoes and salad. I watched an episode of Lewis until nearly bedtime then a foray onto YouTube for something demanding. For a Friday evening, the camping was quiet but then there were only around forty customers. I have a feeling the decision to close the kitchen may well be sooner rather than later.… Read the rest

Skinny Weather

Last night’s repast was a plentiful supply of Horta with potatoes. I’ve taken to heating up the evening repast as it’s not quite so warm now. Back in the hot weather, it was very pleasant to eat cold. I engaged my brain in an episode of Drone Police, BBT followed by The Good Doctor which I started watching when it first appeared but now on a streaming channel.… Read the rest

Warmer and Dryer

Petra had a day off so it was Eva who served me some Gemista with lots of [oven] potatoes. I understand Eva had the day before off as did Bona. This explains why the tins were still there when I came to replenish them.

I watched an episode of UFO which I’d rather I hadn’t as it was particularly long and drawn out totally lacking in pace.… Read the rest

Wet & Windy

There were many ladies with missing fingers as I ate a ton of them having heated them up, as it was raining and the day was cool. I put my brain into neutral and watched an episode of Bugs. Predictable but harmless. I seemed to be hooked on YouTube shorts.

It rained in the night with some thunder.… Read the rest

Autumnal

Fakes, and they were plentiful and so tasty too! I ate and watched The Royal followed by some more YouTube shorts which are very addictive.

The forecast was for unpleasant weather so I spent the first couple of minutes of the day examining the forecast to discover rain was predicted at 05:00. I ignored the advice as we were ready to go so off we went.… Read the rest

Petra sorted me out with some Gigantes and chips! I exchanged this for the news that it might rain and be stormy on Tuesday. I chatted briefly with Anna then went back to eat as I was feeling quite hungry.

Peas and potatoes for supper together with an episode of Murder in Provence where the doctor dunnit. Then tidy up and bed whilst listening to something else. The neighbours were a little noisy but have either left or will leave tomorrow. According to Anna, there are lots of people having a long weekend.

We were out around four-thirty crossing the field in broad moonlight.… Read the rest

Baked aubergine halves and potatoes were the dish of the day and very tasty too. I watched Wycliffe which I find quite easy on the brain.

September Begins

Fakes were on the menu and what a lot I got! Whilst eating, I watched a gripping episode of The Professionals followed by the remaining part of a very interesting documentary on radioactive waste and the naughty things governments and the industry in general have been doing. It’s quite a lengthy film but brings home some of the activities which go on under our noses and the liberties some governments take with their people.… Read the rest
