After a very stressful and hectic summer, I am back at home with a computer that works! Rosemary and I should be going out botanising today, but the weather is awful - grey and rainy and quite cool for Crete. It's around 15 degrees and all the cats are snuggled up in the warmth of the house. Farsin was out all night and came in very bedraggled when I got up to make a cup of tea. I am treating myself to a day listening to Radio 4 and doing some quilting. I need to set up my sewing machine in the living room and to do a little housework before I settle down to my quilting. Rosemary and I were hoping to go out to find a very rare plant called Biarum davisii which grows nearby, but as the track is a dirt track with a steep drop into the sea, I don't think we will be doing it today - the dirt turns to red soup which is so slippy even the jeep tyres don't grip. Never mind - another day!
