Home from Cyprus


Home from Cyprus,  before we left I took these two pictures in Bristol Airport.  This year Bristol had painted Gromit's all over the city,   this is the one in Bristol airport,  I am sure you all know Wallace and Gromit which is made in Bristol by Aardman Productions.

I was requested a picture of me tatting in Cyprus by Wendy,   she had one a few days ago.   I got Vernon to take this picture just to prove I do tat on holiday,  this is a white hanky which I am doing at the moment.   Yes it looks hot and  it was,  we went on a trip and the guide said it was cooling down,  cooling down the next day was hotter and by the weekend it was a mini heatwave up to 40+.  Too hot to sit in the sun tatting thats for sure,  anyway this was taken on our balcony.  Vernon can't understand why I take my tatting with me on holiday,  thinks I am the only person to take work with them?
I have a lot of lovely pictures to put together of Cyprus so in a few days I will post about the holiday.
The flying time to cyprus from Bristol is usually just over four hours,  going out it took four hours eleven mins,  coming back was a very different story, we had a head wind of a hundred miles an hour,  we were battered all the way home, with our seat belts on most of the way.  It took over five hours to get home,  exhaust and battered is how I felt when I fell into my bed just after 3am.
Anyway we are back and I am trying to catch up on all your lovely blogs as I did not have the internet or wifi on holiday,  the hotel was too expensive,  they wanted 10 euros for 2 hours for wifi and to use the hotels one computer in reception was 6 euros for one hour.  The exchange rate in Cyprus for a euro was £1.16, I will let you work out the cost.   I did manage to find a bar with free wifi which I used a couple of times, while I had a drink.
Until we meet again take care
