Something rather lovely happening in Shoestring today. A couple of people aleady know because I messaged them that my wife died totally unexpectedly in her sleep in the early hours of Tuesday morning, very peacefully because neither my son or I heard her in any distress and she looked totally relaxed when we found her.

Anyway by coincidence her favourite brother is on the island at the moment with his kids and decided he wanted to visit our favourite place and light a candle for her. I messaged Aggelos last night and he said "I will look after Max like I am looking after you when you are here.." but then they make everyone welcome anyway. He also lit a candle for Debbie himself which has been burning all day on the bar. Today I remembered how to smile for a bit.

And it goes without saying that Max loved the place and the food and the brothers. Baby steps but I'll come through this.

Ah that's so lovely Mike and what a nice and thoughtful idea. I know from your many posts on the forum how you and your wife love shoestrings and stayed in that lovely place nearby. It's so lovely theyve done that.

Thanks everyone, still in shock really and have cancer surgery anytime now as well, so not even sure if we'll be able to do the funeral before that but officialdom is aware of the circumstances and they can keep her in the mortuary until I'm fit again if needed. But it's minimum two weeks in hosptal and then recovery time obviously. Life is ganging up on me at the moment but I have huge support so I shall overcome.

Sincere condolences Mike. What very sad and unexpected news. You must not only be devastated but also I imagine be very shocked at her sudden passing. Even though I don't know you personally, I really feel for your loss.

So sorry to hear of your loss Mike, i am shocked. I met you & your son many years ago, you gave us a lift from Neriada to busters, we were very grateful. You will be in our thoughts, not going to be easy, take each day as it comes, Take Care.

Sorry to hear of your recent loss. No kind words or gestures can ever replace someone but they're still nice to receive.
I wish more people in this country were as thoughtful as the Greeks.
As you say Mike, baby steps.

Tom and Rose

Booted up my pc when I got up just before 6am and the cam was working fine and would open up again in multiple tabs so left it running just on the one. Checked other stuff on the pc and it was still all OK. Noticed Yannis come in at 6.15am (our time) carrying a crate of something and as he walked through the kitchen door behind the till the feed froze and now it will not connect. Draw your own conclusions ;D
