Steve’s Birthday Bash

Our friend, Steve, celebrated his birthday by hosting a meze meal at The Two Friends restaurant.
Fourteen people turned up to wish the "Birthday Boy" all the best, but we still could'ent get his real age out of him.

The only disappointment of the evening was that the Sparkling candles on his birthday cake did'ent sparkle.

A quiet evening turned into a long one as we moved onto the Pissouriana for a few late night drinks.

New Gym, Olives and Welsh Gold

This month the Serenity gym and Spar (www.serenity opened in the village, we wish them every success.

This week were given a bucket of olives from a friend's tree and are in the process of preparing them in brine in time for Christmas.

Our friends Pam & Arthur returned a visit to Cardiff and brought back a drop of Welsh Gold.

Bonfire Night

We celebrated Guy Fawkes night by visiting the British Army base at Episkopi. At Lemmings beach the huge crowd that gathered were entertained by the lighting of a huge bonfire followed by an impressive firework display. Even though the evening was mild we still used it as an excuse to try out a few glasses of mulled wine.

Also entertaining the crowd were The pipe band of The Queen's Royal hussars were there playing some stirring tunes.

Paul’s Birthday

This weekend we went up to Paul and Tina’s impressive six bedroom house to attend Paul’s birthday party. The weather in the evening was still warm enough to hold the celebration outside.

The centre of a superb buffet was a roasted suckling pig.

Leaving party

In a odd turn of events we marked one year of living in Cyprus by going to a leaving party. Ourfriends, Eileen and Peter, are heading back to the UK to live and held their party at the 1911 club to say goodbye all of their friends.

In the evening we strolled over to the Pissouri amphitheatre to see the Cowbridge Male voice choir (from Wales) perform a concert.
