Said i would get around to telling you my funny moment in Corfu. Well unpacking is done and started packing for V fest now, so have a minute!
We went on a lovely day trip to Paleocastritsa in the north of Corfu, and Achilles palace and Corfu town and had a really good time. I managed to walk to the palace and the monastery and the tour guide was wonderful as she took me in different ways to stop long walks up the hill.
In Paleocastitisa we went into a very small aquarium which turned out to be a little delight with fish from Corfu "saved from the grill" as the owner said! There was also a reptile room and the owner and his assistants were so keen for everyone to see the animals and hold them if they want. So armed with a huge tub of hand gel I wanted to hold the snakes as I really love them! So he got out the biggest boa constrictor he had and it was massive but so gorgeous. He put it round my neck and then I realised I have neck problems and just about fell on the floor. But a little thing like that wouldnt stop me so I picked up and balanced with the crutches and it was so hot inside the aquarium I looked like a boiled beetroot.
Then the snake decided it liked me and started to explore, so I couldnt do much about it as it was massive and heaby and I'm balanced on the crutches. It then started to make its way down the stick and coil around my crutches, but then me and the owner couldnt get it to release them and we had to fight with it to give up its new love.
I have put on a picture of me , boiling hot, with the snake in love with my sticks and me very steroided up and fat (roll on the diet the doc has me doing in September!!)
But it gave us all a huge laugh and hope it cheers you all up!
