We have had a little owl (or two) around in the mornings, but I don't know how Dave saw this little chap on the window ledge of a derelict building.
And this is an interesting creature. It is only a small one, a couple of centimetres, and I have seen them much bigger, but they move really fast. This one was caught in my old pan.
I have had to start making yogurt regularly again. There is a huge range in the supermarkets, but I can't find one thick enough for tzatziki, which we are having every day at the moment, so will have to strain it myself. Shame really as it is so cheap (and convenient) to buy.
I have been in the pool today, and it was lovely. The best thing about getting hot is feeling breathless from the chill of cold water. Not the sea, but the best we can do. It had a puncture yesterday after catching a piece of debris while Dave was strimming. So it is now sporting a round bicycle patch.
We are having our first visitors tomorrow, a couple we met when we came to view houses and who very kindly showed what to look out for, and had us stay in a lovely comfy bed for a night, a luxurious change from the awful hotel we were staying in. It will be nice to see them again and to show them our patch.
Dave had another experience with the very generous Bulgarians today. He had gone to our usual shop for cold drinks and eggs, (he doesn't go often now I make my own bread), but they didn't have any eggs. So he brought his shopping home and went off to try another of the shops. To his amazement they wouldn't take any money. They had gone into the fridge at the back for fresh ones too, they were very nice. Even I had one. We have never used this shop, and now we have a bit of a quandary. Do we continue to use the shop we have used since moving here, use both equaly, or use the new shop for soft drinks and cured meat, which they seem to specialise in. The latter I think. How very kind people can be to a total stranger.
Venka has just been across with a pan of soup. They are delicious her soups, though I have to inspect them well to see if there is any meat in, as one delicious smelling one was chicken. This one looks all veggie though, so tomorrow's supper taken care of. She even brigs them in a pan, ready to use. And I just happen to have made some garlic and oregano bread......
