Cacoons and blue olives
What a day: morning started with a meeting at Cacoon: a new interiors company which has set up in Peyia village. The lady who part owns and runs the shop is lovely: Raphaelle. She is a trained and experienced interior designer whose job will be to help the many people buying property in the Coral Bay and Peyia area, to make those properties beautiful – and at a great price! The shop is totally wonderful: colourful, inspirational and very unusual eg in the mix of very sci-fi light fittings with reclaimed furnishings. We loved it! Course I wanted to come home and change everything – but Tony is only just recovering from his brush with Burgundy paint, so there’s no chance of anything being redone just yet.
Next step was Coral Bay, just next to the core of our Coral Bay villas, where friends of ours have opened a great bistro, Blue Olive. Tony and I felt we had to sit there and experience the food, wine and, especially, the puddings – just so we can tell holidaymakers about the whole experience, you understand. It was a tough task but we stayed strong.
Strange that visiting a posh bistro with wide ranging and interesting menu, didn’t make me want to come home and try to cook something different for tea! We had beans on toast with an egg on the top – very tasty it was too!
Wonder what tomorrow has in store for us?…..
