We had agreed to go to Larnaca airport and collect Barbara’s daughter, who is here for two months. The idea is that she thinks Barbara needs looking after. Obviously we had all three agreed that this was also an opportunity to do some shopping on the way, as her flight was not due until 9 p.m.
First job for Joan and I this morning was to catch two cats and take them to the vet for bi-monthly worming injections. We only had one carrier so Bono was stuffed in to that and Smudge was OK on her harness and lead. Good job we had trained her for that in the days when we had the motorhome in France. So that also meant that we had to add a cat carrier on to our shopping list for the South, far too expensive on our side. Bono was not too impressed, as we don’t suppose anything like that has happened to him before, but he just took it in his stride, especially as he got a big cuddle from the vet.
Joan had arranged to go and have a birthday lunch with Pam and the girls from her Aqua class. Pam had arranged to go to the new Chateau Lambousa restaurant which when I heard the stories later, was not too clever. this new restaurant and bar is a sort of training establishment, being run by GAU (Girne American University) ostensibly for the Horeca business. It would appear that if they are going to let untrained students loose with customers, they need to be better supervised. Two of the ladies didn’t get any lunch at all, one got something totally different to that which she ordered and another was told, sorry we don’t have chicken liver pate’, that’s on next weeks menu.
Anyway Joan got home at 2.45 so we were able to collect Barbara and head off South. We managed to get all our food shopping done and then went to the beach area, just after the airport and there we had a meal. We got to the airport at 9.30, only to find Caron beginning to panic, as her plane had got in from East Midlands, 15 minutes early and she was beginning to think that we had forgotten her. We finally giot back home around midnight.
