I am in Spetses!!!!!
It’s the baby’s first trip to Spetses!!!!!
Since I extended my trip in Greece I had to find time to come down to Spetses to see my brother as he found a job working at one of the bars down here and so coming down would be the only way to see him. I tried to find boat tickets but they were all full and then suddenly my sister-in-law’s sister and her husband and child decided to drive down for the weekend so hitched a ride down with them!
The driving was a little insane I have to say!!! And those curves around the mountains are a killer – more so being pregnant! Was having to fight the nausea with my usual trick – turning my head to the side of the turn!! It works!! But you look and feel ridiculous!!
Anyway, had to go all the way into town to find wifi to write this and it’s super late as got stuck seeing people and having dinner and then having a drink (sprite!!) out and only now got down to write this!!
And better go as people are waiting since I am only here until Sunday – so only a day and a half!! Although I am exhausted!!!
I am sad that Stuart is not with me though out here – wish you were here Stuart!!
Hey I always said that I would be at the Rendez Vous bar with baby in tow….well, I guess I was right!! And it’s not even born yet haha!!!!

Today was just a random day, full of lots of different random things that kept me busy….
First up – had to get up as Stuart was up early to play golf with his brothers and dad, but before he left his mother made a full English breakfast…so I had to be up for that!!!!!! I could smell the bacon and goodies downstairs 🙂 Nothing beats a good English breakfast!! Yummy!!
After that – Stuart’s mum and I went to the nail salon. We didn’t think it would be that long but got stuck behind a family getting their nails done….oddly, it was a family of young girls getting their nails done while another family waited and watched. Which was sad actually, as these girls were young and obviously this other family of girls were not allowed to have them done so they just had to watch 😦 They did ask a few times and got a little upset and stroppy when they kept being told “No”. Although it was bizarre – as these girls were super young and getting fake nails on!! It must have been for some event like a wedding or something…or I hope so as it was just weird!
Then off to Costa coffee – with Stuart’s mum to meet up with her special someone.
Then – heading to Stuart’s brother’s house to have a quick hello and cup of tea with the three little cute kids since Stuart’s brother was off playing golf for the day.
And then – home for a quick change and some crumpets.
Before heading to the – Harlequin to help out behind the bar for a dance show they were having in the theatre which was supposed to have 400 some odd people attend. They were understaffed and so I said I would help out. Arrived there at 6pm and instead of having time to look around and figure out whats what I was thrown in as there were already people arriving and queuing up. At first I started by helping others and then there was just too many people so had to dive in and do orders too. It was funny as I of course had to figure out the cash register and where everything was and how much everything was as well as figure out what the UK “drink slang” meant and what it was!! So as I passed Stuart’s mum or others I knew who worked there I would ask them sneakily on my way!! It’s quite organized though there so soon caught on but it was just a funny process – should have been my video upload of the day!!! If only someone could have been filming from the side!! Especially with some muck-ups like giving the wrong change, typing in the item three times instead of once on the cash register, not being able to find the correct pint glasses for the different beers! 🙂

I was thinking early this morning as I lay in bed, about last night, and then other nights over the past few months…
I was at my friend’s birthday party at a bar last night, drinking my ordered seltzer, my good ol’ seltzer – actually I love seltzer – but many people asked me what I was drinking and did I miss alcohol, did I miss drinking, and was that joke joke vodka haha!
And this has happened a lot.
And, yes I am known for my tequila.
And, yes I drink, and perhaps never not drink when I am out.
And, yes maybe I am a lightweight so get tipsy or drunk after like one or two drinks.
And, yes maybe I never stop at one or two drinks but just keep on truckin’
And, yes maybe I am known for my drunken crazy like dancing on bars and stunts like drunken breakdancing or push-ups with clapping in the middle which results in something like breaking my thumb. And perhaps back in my “wild days” being quite the player slash tease slash extrovert.
(And, perhaps I still am……shhhhh)
And, maybe I have never been at a party or out and actually been sober.
Is that why I keep getting asked if I miss drinking? And how am I able to cope without a drink??
Alcho, was I??
No worries everyone – soon there will be a baby on my hip at the bar, as I always said there would be when the time came 🙂
And, maybe I wasn’t kidding…
