Being back on Gozo is a joy, despite January and February being the worst months weatherwise. We still get those fabulous blue skies more often than not and the people look happy and less strained than in the UK. The colour of the stone is sunny and not grey and it won't be long until the fields are filled with the wild flowers of an early spring again. We have carnivale to look forward to in early Feb, which is the culmination of 12 months hard work for all the costume makers and troop chroegraphers. What a spectacle that is.
So... I must make plans and prepare, lots to do during the dark evenings. All the hard work of last year, I hope will now come to fruition.
... and a nice little thought for us all to start a new chapter. xx
