We will be doing the whole lamb on the spit and kokouretsi (spelling?) and washing it down with lots of wine with our koumbaros in Lefkosia. We have been fasting so will no doubt really enjoy it. My mouth is watering now!

We're coming to Cyprus Yay!! :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: It seems so long since our last visit (August) we just cant wait! Easter Saturday we're planning to spend the evening at the church in Paralimni joining in the celebrations. Did this a few years ago, but didn't really "get it" now we sort of know what to expect, we're really looking forward to it! This time tomorrow we'll be on our way (still havent packed though) Excitedly Carolyn :D

I haven't packed yet either and I am busy with parents evenings at school and we leave on Thursday straight after work! Still, I am feeling in the holiday mood already, despite this grey depressing weather in the UK. Best get my bottom off the pc and start....! Have a great Easter Ali

We are coming over as well, we fly on Friday evening and are staying until the 18th. I am hoping it will be very hot & sunny because its horrible here in the UK & the weather men said expect snow again over Easter!!!

Well -I'm getting out of here and spending Easter in Manchester --I had to close my unemployment card for 31st March-as I'm a 'permanent employee'in hotel industry which is supposed to open on 1st April --however,no chance of tourists till at least 1st May-so we are all stuck to using in advance our annual leave for 2010 to cover our social insurance etc.-So this is is my summer holiday --

Hi Meenie,
Can you tell me where the Easter Fun Day is please, and also where will the procession be?
Many thanks Carolyn

We're off to Benidorm :shock: Out Friday, back Tuesday, so it doesn't eat into Mike's annual leave. Apart from visiting some tapas bars, EuroTabaco, the indoor market and a good deli, it'll be a much-needed big chill. Marion

Looks like I'll be getting rid of more stones from the garden prior to top soil arriving. After that it'll be down to the beach for a picnic and a paddle

Looking forward to some days off during easter, my plan is not to have any plans...not more than catching up with friends, eating lots of chocolate and be veeery lazy! :) I wish all of you a great easter whereever you are and whatever you´re up to!

Posted By: dawnnett

Well what a start to the easter holls for us !!! Got up at 5.30 am to take daughter to hospital She was nervous (me too) anyway she was admitted undressed waiting to see the consultant , he came and gave us the news they hadnt got the plastic ligament that was being used for the op to her shoulder and that it would now be approx 2 weeks time and also she wouldnt be able to fly for 6 weeks So we have now lost a holiday that we had booked to take her a few weeks after the op plus £200 for the doing so Great easter int it Dawn :(
