Ah, Linda, what a pallava!!! Just when you were going for some well deserved relaxation. What a shame about the weather too. I'm pleased you can see past the disasters and not be put off by this dreadful experience. Take care my friend x
Hi Viv, DJB, Sorry to report we didn’t have a good holiday . Landed in one hell of a storm, Very bumpy. After a one and a half hour delay. Got to the Villa thank goodness we had been delayed in Manchester because it would have meant that 1 and half hours would also have been spent in torrential rain.standing outside the villa waiting for 4pm to be allowed in. Long story cut short the Villa we booked months ago was no longer available just weeks before our due date to fly. And then low and behold when we did eventually get to go in A VILLA it was not the replacement of the 1st one but yet another villa. It took 2 days to dry our cases and clothes another long story. The reason we were given was they “The Company” dealing with our holiday did not I repeat did not realise we were on the early flight. So the Villa to replace the one we had booked in the first place was not ready as it had not been cleaned. And to top that the 3rd Villa we eventually got in after having to take a taxi plus luggage up to the supermarket and ask if we could leave it at the front desk while we did some food shopping,,,, well that too was not acceptable and we had to ask for cleaners to come and clean it. TWICE... This company completely failed us. We could not understand why we are given a 6 15 am flight and a taxi from the airport to the villa only to be told we could not access the Villa in such appalling weather and have to take our suitcases with us no matter where we had to go. It was only the fact that I knew the ladies who worked there were kind that we went to ask if they would kindly keep there eye on our luggage, so thank you very much for being so kind Valyou Supermarket. That wasn’t the end of our dramas we had just 2 days out of 7 where we didn’t have to wait around for this or that to be seen to A bunch of flowers was our reward for the many complaints we had.They were put on the table while we were out of the Villa on the Friday as we came home early Tuesday morningStill I will go back again as this was definitly a one off but never to those Villas.
Derek James Bevan, if my brain is working it out right, you'll be flying today? If you are, hold on tight as the wind is blowing a hoolie! I spoke to my friend Denise last night and the weather was lovely in Qawra, they were sitting at the Knickerbocker pub (facing the bus station) having a drink and a meal in the evening sunshine.Linda, I hope you have had a lovely holiday and enjoyed relaxing and shopping in Valletta! Take care all of my Skyline friends.

Hi Folks there are still a lot of folks on the beach considering the time of year.
Viv aye it was rather wet and cold here too ,heating on. Will keep an eye on your flight but the wind is from the north west so I think you'll be taking off westward. Gan canny
Linda and Derek, thanks for your good wishes, I certainly am going to enjoy myself in the warmth of Malta over the next eleven days. My friend is just about recovered from her knee replacement and was given the all clear to drive last week so she had lots of things planned. She did mention pole dancing and tassel swinging for me....?! So I may be cowpen me creels after all... Daft as a brush, the pair of us...!
