The Return of the Exiles

March 10, 2011

Well, here we are back in Gouvia Marina, Corfu after an extended trip home to visit just about everyone we could think of going to visit.  We left here on 14 January and arrived back on 8 March – seven weeks away!  Rampage is fine, having been in the care of our neighbours Alan and Bern.  We’ve done little since we returned except realise that we’re broke, try to find places to stow all the kit we’ve brought back from UK and, in the interim, sleep lots.

Now, a quick plea to all of you.  Whatever phone number you may have for Julia and I, please make sure that you only have one number for us from now onwards – 07872225781.  This is because J’s phone won’t work properly out here, so we’re just going to switch it off from now on.  So there it is; one phone number for us and that number is 00447872225781.

We’ll do a proper blog update shortly, once we’re a little more organised.  Watch this space!
