Well, Tonys brother, The Marvellous Michael, has emailed with the great news that Wicked William and Tony Without Teeth, are sneaking over to Cyprus for a pre Christmas break. Sadly, they aren’t staying with us because of the number of steps at our home and Mikes lack of mobility after 7 beers – but I suspect Wicked William, 93 years young and Tony Without Teeth, (whose age I cannot reveal coz she’d put all of her 83 years behind the punch I received), will pop up to stay for a day or 7!

Even if they don’t, I’m getting very excited because I have decided to do a Christmas Day, ”Trial Run” and will have a full Christmas lunch for The Bell Brigade at our home. It will be so lovely to get everything ready for them and to share Christmas our way, with them – though they will be delighted to know the food is still very much UK traditional but a few decent Cypriot wines thrown in!

It’s been a busy year for us at home with friends and family staying. I’m really quite tired now but this is a lovely and very welcome chance to share the festive spirit with the in laws!

Tony? Oh, I think he’s busy that day!….

If you’d like to spend Christmas in a villa in Coral Bay or Peyia – or are thinking of booking for 2017, drop me an email before I get stuck into the food preparations for December! Enquiries@cyprusvillas.uk.com
