I’m back in the UK, for what has ironically turned out to be the hottest weekend of the year so far, fortunately its still a good deal cooler than Cyprus!
It’s been 4 months since we last visited, and I’ve been struck not only by how green everything is (which is ironic in a drought) but also how long the days are. It gets dark in Cyprus very quickly at about 8:30pm. In the UK it is light until 10pm and the lovely half-light of twilight lasts for about an hour. Apparently it’s all to do with your position on the globe, but I confess I don’t know the science!
Of course being back home has also meant more of my mother’s home cooking… just look at those brownies!
