Kastri Island

Travel Theme: Numbers

At the time of writing this post there are 210 days until Simon and I get married on beautiful Kastri Island in Kos, Greece! Our special date is 29/05/2015. We’re going to have the most wonderful time with just a small number of close family and friends. I’m so excited to be sharing our love of this wonderful Greek Island with our guests, as well as having them with us on the day I finally become Mrs Williams 🙂

Weekly Photo Challenge: Summer Lovin’

One of the things we love to do when we’re in Kos is to watch the sun set over the nearby island of Kalymnos from the mountain village of Zia. This year was even more special for us as for the first time I watched and photographed this beautiful spectacle with my fiancé! Yes, Simon and I got engaged whilst on our holiday this year 🙂 Most definitely a summer of love for us!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Reflections

My choice for this weeks challenge is an abstract portrait of my partner, Simon, caught out in Camden Stables Market. I really liked this unusual mirror and the glimpse it gave me of Simon in its multi-faceted reflections. Anyone who knows him should recognize him instantly!

There are many things in life that I treasure but my heart truly belongs to Simon. He is precious beyond measure to me!

We both thoroughly treasure the time we get to spend together, each year, on the beautiful Greek island of Kos.

Kos itself is full of treasures, historical and natural. I thought I’d use this week’s challenge to show you just a few of these from our 2012 holiday!

Strange Fish!

Strange Fish!

It was our last full day here in beautiful Kos. The weather really warmed up so we hit the beaches for a spot of snorkeling and sun-worshiping.

I saw loads of great fish today, wrasse, sea bass, flat fish and more besides!

The most unusual of all though was this rare sighting of the wonderful Yellow-trunked Simon Fish. It’s a totally unique species only ever found in warm waters like the Mediterranean!

A truly magnificent specimen don’t you think?

Coming Home

Coming Home

After an unfortunate admission to hospital yesterday and a minor operation for a Crohn’s-linked pain in the butt, I’ve finally come home to my two lovely boys, Pixel and Simon 🙂

My Boys

Pixel has been very cute and very comedic, Simon’s been a star, as ever! I am currently being cooked Roast Gammon, which is just divine after hospital offerings.

After that I shall finally attack some Easter chocolate 😀

I have to say I honestly didn’t think I’d need admitting. I’d hoped and thought they could sort me out in accident and emergency. Never mind! I’ve got some healing to do but at least I’m home and my complete pain in the butt is now a lot less painful!

Thanks St Peters Hospital NHS!

I won’t lie to you, today I have been exhausted!

I am very lucky to have a wonderful man in my life who looks after me and does lovely, little things just to make me smile when I’ve had a rough day 🙂

His Chicken Pie tonight was almost waving hello to me, inviting me to dive in and eat my fill.

I did, it was yummy 🙂
