The Esteemed Edwards Family!
I’ve had the great pleasure of welcoming back to Cyprus, John, Kate, Caroline and Michael Edwards – along with Mum, Jan (who are really lovely!).
John has been a family friend for many years: I met him was I was in my early twenties, skinny (we both were John!) and living with wrinklies in Warsash……………One of the “Jamesy Gang”, I learnt a thing or two about drinking and sailing from John and the gang- though only the experience of drinking stays with me!
Life moves on, I moved north, John married Kate and they are like peas in a pod: perfectly suited with a gorgeous family. Tony and I were delighted last year when the Edwards chose to come to Cyprus to stay in villa Stavroulla – and even more thrilled when they came back again this year, with Jan. I know its the pull of the gorgeous villa and lovely island which brought them back but I also hope they came for the welcome from us too – though we’ve been so busy with arrivals, we’ve not had the time to spend with them!
Anyway, they’ve had a ball! I’ve just checked them out and they all look tanned, rested and full of life. Off to see Stavros and Skevi at The Neptune for yorkshire puddings and traditional Sunday lunch, they were ending their 09 holiday in fine form – and I was so jealous and wanted to join them!!
Great holidays are about great people – and this family are one of the loveliest! Its makes doing this work so very much better when you are met with good attitudes, smiles, pleasant natures and willingness to understand life happens, bulbs blow, things break – but all will be cared for and put right asap.
Thanks you Edwards Gang! Please come back again very very soon – and when you see the wrinklies, don’t tell them I write about them from time to time. Its our secret!
ps and Michael, I was only half joking about you becoming my toy boy!
