Corfu – as good as Gerald said it was

We’re heading to Greece, hurrah! This is a sneaky extra trip, just because. It’s been a rubbish year and we’re desperate for some Autumn sunshine and cheer. And why Corfu?

Seven years later…obviously there areContinue reading “I work at an airport – dream job?”
