Where is my Blog? Where is my Summer?


I have been very busy lately. You know, busy with … stuff!

In fact I have been busy since a couple of months with …stuff!

And since “stuff” makes “stuff”, I feel stuffed myself. Stuffed with fat!

I realized with horror that waste line downwards I have become stuffier & stuffier. Is it due to this?

Auntie’s Greek Galaktoboureko!

Or is it due to this?

miserable weather in Athens – yesterday!

I mean this real mean weather. It is the 2nd of June in Athens and we have hardly seen the summer yet. Everything is upside down here. Even springtime was actually in … February!

Apart a few hot days –was it one?-, the rest reminds me of September: a little cloudy, a little windy a little chilly, a little weird for the season.

In fact this is the time to start making plans for a vacation. Vacation in Greece means for me sea, sea, & sea.

Lefkada vacation – last year!

But how to go to the sea when the weather urges you rather to take your umbrella than your swimming suit? And on the other hand, how to go to the sea if you are so stuffed with fat?

Anyway, lots of things have gone upside down the last couple of months, weeks, days. Privately and nationally: Harsh austerity measures, no future ahead and corruption scandals that never seem to end. Of course, the bloody Gaza Flotilla assault. I am a full blood journalist so I can’t help but giving priority to news than to pure blog stuff.

I had thought my blog would be a mixture of news & comments plus a kind of ironical approach to the situation in Greece. But I have lost my humor lately.  There is almost nothing to laugh about or  to inspire you in a perspective sharp mental way. Most of the people I know are down, in a bad psychological situation, see no future ahead. People at my age get jobless; their children have no chance for a job.

Have a nice day!

my  Hybiskus… last year!

This year my balcony Hybiskus got ‘depressed’ too…
