Kalimera, Crete and clean teeth!

30

If it wasn’t for the rather prolific sightings of these strangely beautiful toadstools in our garden, I’d be hard pressed to believe that the weather has changed at all since the summer. Really warm today again, with masses of sunshine so I was able to line dry all my holiday washing 🙂 Thanks for staying in touch with me on Twitter and Instagram when we were in Crete – we had such a lovely time, and I’ve got lots of photographs to show you now. It was also great to read all your comments on the blog when I got home. I had every intention of writing to you while I was away, and sunbathing, but my iPad had other ideas!

There’s something rather special about taking a late summer break, especially when we had such a wonderful summer in the UK. Crete is an island that Colin hasn’t been to before but I had a fun time away with my friend Jo there in 2012. The weather this year was much the same – lots of sunshine, a stiff breeze, but a very impressive thunderstorm at the end of our week!

Crete is the largest of the Greek islands, and the fifth largest island in the Mediterranean Sea, after Sicily, Sardinia, Cyprus and Corsica. We were staying in a small town called Analipsi that is right on the coast. Unlike most of the Greek islands Colin and I have visited, the beaches here are very sandy, and the sea is incredibly warm. We gave ourselves three days to completely chill out, and then hired a car. Luckily we both enjoy having a good old look around places, and our first trip was to Rethymno on the western side of Crete overlooking the Sea of Greece.

Our little car didn’t like the hills much on our 90 minute journey, but was okay freewheeling down the other side! We found a very large beach and spent a few hours there before heading into the main city. What a fabulous place! We decided to find the Fortezza Fortress as we’d read it was well worth a visit, and we weren’t disappointed! It is set on a hillside that overlooks the town and the sea, and was built in the 16th century by the Venetians who occupied Crete in order to protect its citizens from Ottoman invasions.

It is huge, and the solid walls are very high. There was so much space actually within the fortress and lots of buildings too, including a gunpowder warehouse, a temple, a mosque, a church and an artillery warehouse. It was a beautiful day and we had a fabulous view from the reinforced walls. Colin took these photographs while I did my best poses!


We had a tasty Greek salad and mezze while sitting in the sunshine in a small square a little way from the Fortezza, and then we set out to explore the port. What an atmosphere – so alive and busy, and as the sun set over the harbour we took this photo.

The journey back home through the mountains was a little hairy, with our tiny car running on what felt more like donkey than horsepower! Being overtaken by folk on quadbikes wasn’t much fun either! However, undeterred, we decided on a shorter journey the following day, this time to the east of the island and the ancient town of Elounda, originally known as Olous.

It’s been inhabited since Minoan times, was incredibly wealthy in its day, and even had its own currency! But the ancient city of Olous sank into the sea, and its ruins are still visible on calm days. Sadly the day we went it was incredibly windy, so no sightings were made, but we made good use of our time mooching around the natural harbour where there are still natural saltpans that had been part of the lucrative salt trade centuries before.

Of course one of the biggest tourist attractions there is Spinalonga Island, once a military stronghold during the Venetian rule, but transformed into a leper colony. By 1913, after Crete became part of Greece, anyone afflicted with the disease was sent there. The author Victoria Hislop was so moved having visited that she wrote her bestseller “The Island” which I’ve read, and found incredibly beautiful but sad.

I had been there on my previous trip to Crete, and Colin was happy just to look across the water of the Gulf of Mirabello at the island itself, so we chose not to go. If I’m honest, I was rather glad, as I’d found my visit quite disturbing yet moving, and the memory of it had stayed with me.

We had lunch in a little waterside restaurant, and then headed down the coast to Aghios Nikolaos to the aptly named Golden Beach. What a stunning place! Incredibly soft white sand, and warm, clear seawater. We both fell in love with it, and as the sun set and we headed back into the town of Aghios for dinner, we vowed to return the following day. We ate fresh fish that night, in a little restaurant on the edge of the harbour and then bought a handmade linen and crocheted tablecloth from one of the many shops that line the very narrow streets there.

The following day was another hot sunny one, and we got to the beach a little earlier, and had a lazy time just splashing around in the water and snoozing in the sunshine. I’d made sure I brought the Philip Kingsley Product of the Month – that delicious Pomegranate and Cassis Elasticizer for my hair. It’s very bleached at the moment and needs plenty of TLC. Interesting that Crete is filled with pomegranate trees that in turn are filled with fruit!

We had to get our little car back that evening, but it had been a lovely couple of days finding out more about this beautiful island. There was a spectacular storm on our final night in Analipsi, with sheet lightning and thunder so loud that it woke us both up at 4am! It was still raining in the morning and stayed cloudy for most of the day, but that was fine by me as we were heading home that night. I felt sorry for folk who arrived on that day though, as it was probably warmer in the UK! We got home at 3.30am on Friday – which was 5.30am Greek time – and then I was back at the Q for 5pm! Talk about hit the ground running 🙂 But it’s always lovely to come back to work and see my friends, and I felt genuinely rested too which was a bonus.

I’d treated my skin to a Gatineau Gommage exfoliation before applying their Moisturising Mask, as although I’d looked after my skin while I was in the sun, it seemed a tad dry. Natalie who did my make-up that night complemented me on my smooth complexion, so clearly it worked!

Did you catch the Lakeland hour at 7pm? What a brilliant British company. The heated vertical airer with the cover was superb, but I loved their drain weasels too. Such a great way to remove gunk from your drains without chemicals! I do love a practical product.

Talking of which, something I’d never be without is my sonic toothbrush, and so I’m particularly delighted to be unveiling the Soniclean Ultra as our TSV on Tuesday morning. Can you imagine how clean your teeth will be with their 40,000 brush strokes per minute?! Well I can tell you, having used mine (I chose the pink but there are other colours) that they feel as though I’ve visited the hygienist! It’s rechargeable, comes with eight brush heads, and has four different modes – including a whitening programme! Two things to say: firstly apply the toothpaste BEFORE you press the on switch and DO expect it to tickle a little bit if you’ve not used one of these toothbrushes before. It’s under £40 – I remember when Sonic toothbrushes were over £100! – so I’d suggest you get in early and order yours!

I’ve got an hour of Dyson today at 4pm and then our Fashion Fix show at 7pm followed by a whole hour dedicated to H by Halston. I hope you can join me 🙂

Do keep in touch on Twitter and Instagram and I’ve posted a few more photos of my holiday on my Facebook Page too. I’ll look forward to hearing from you here too! Have a great week.

With my love,

Ali X

    Hi Alison, a lovely read as always, so pleased you had a great holiday. Hubby and I cruised this year and we stopped at Crete. I got my chance to visit Spinalonga, have wanted to go since reading Victoria Hislop’s book. Hubby hadn’t read the book however he enjoyed the visit to the island as much as I did. I agree, a sad visit but so very interesting. Good to have you back on screen. X

    Hi Alison glad you enjoyed your holiday and feel rested for a while we to visited spinalonga years ago with the children we thought it had a strange atmosphere like you said .Anyway we are back from Rome it was lovely glad you liked the photos weather was really hot 2days it was 38 degrees a tad hot for sightseeing my ankles didn’t like it much very swollen, we saw everything we wanted to see so we were happy, we are keeping an eye out for another holiday at some point but have our son Gary’s 30th soon and his wedding not until January 2020 but never the less we need to save a bit, at least we do still have the trip up north which I think I mentioned to you before in November to catch up with relatives so we will see what happens along the way. Talking of your skin feeling a bit dry I did treat myself to some loccitane, only spent about an hour in total at the pool we were too busy sightseeing still managed to catch the sun though , there were lots of mosquitos and everyone was getting bitten I don’t normally have that problem. Sorry I have rambled on a bit nice to see you back on QVC love Loraine xx☺

      Dear Loraine, I’m sorry it’s taken so long for me to respond! I don’t seem to have five minutes since we got back! So glad that you enjoyed Rome, although I’m sure it was heavy going in that heat. It will be exciting for you to have Gary’s wedding to look forward to, and any trips anyway it’s always a case of saving the pennies! I’m glad that the Loccitane helped your skin. I think the really hot weather followed by rain and then the hot weather has made an mosquitoes worse! I tend to use the really strong Deet stuff as I’m often bitten. It’s been such a beautiful week here though, I hope you’ve managed to get out and enjoy it. Thanks for keeping in touch with me here and on Twitter. Love Ali xx

    Evening Mrs E, Stunning blue skies, sunshine & pomegranates – I love the Mediterranean. As always you’ve given us a fantastic travelogue & sold Crete to me, also lovely to read that you felt rested after your time away. As I said in a previous reply this was the first time in many years we had taken a holiday during term time & it was wonderful; don’t get me wrong I like children, both big & little, but flights without them & a town that was quieter gave us a really calm week. It has also been a bonus not having to iron the holiday clothes, just wash, dry & put away until next year. The glorious summer did mean that many of the projects I had planned to do got sidelined in favour of days in the garden, especially when Ellie & her bundle of love joined me, so I’m now planning to do a couple of decorating tasks & plant a Hornbeam hedge. Add to those the fact that I bought a pair of boots this morning & autumn is obviously on her way (as is the postman!) Love from Jo x

      Hello there Mrs D, and thank you SO much for my card and tickets. I am beyond excited, and am really touched by your kindness. I’ll let you know how it goes. I’m so glad that you too enjoyed your holiday more this year. I completely understand the difference between term time and school holidays – both you and I and every other parent will! So it’s good that now you can make your own choice 🙂 I’m sure you thoroughly enjoyed your time with Ellie and little one. Great to be able to sit in the garden and catch up while the weather is so fine still. Good luck with the decorating and planting out that hedge. My friend Roz is planning on putting in a Hidcote Lavender hedge! All very industrious. I hope your boots arrived – I think you’re going to be able to get good use out of them this autumn! Take care and thank you again for thinking of me, love Ali x

    Hello Alison, welcome back. What a fantastic read on you’re blog, you really do hold our attention, it’s like I’m there on holiday with you. Have you ever thought of writing a book! I always look forward to reading your descriptive blogs. Sounds like a magical place, you appreciate all the history and beautiful surroundings, that’s what makes you’re blogs so magical to read. Lovely to have you back at qvc, we do miss you’re positivity you always give, thank you for that. Enjoy the rest of the sunny days here. Look forward to you’re coming up shows. Take care.xx

      Hi Caroline, and thank you so much for your kind words about the blog! I really enjoy making notes and taking the photos and then putting it all together here. Funnily enough I have written a book which I hope to publish before the end of the year, and I may well be asking for a few of you to give me your thoughts on it. It’s great to be back at the Q, and I’ve had some lovely shows to work on. Been rather busy behind the scenes with family too, so apologies for not getting back to you sooner. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed working in the garden over these last few days, and had a long walk in the sunshine with my sister which was lovely. You take care, and thanks again for keeping in touch. Love Ali xx

    Morning Ali
    Nice to see you back looking refreshed after your holiday. Crete is a lovely island and we have visited the places you have also. We stayed close to Elounda. Spinalonga is lovely although very sad to think why people had to be there through no fault of their own. You are not alone with repeated holiday photos wearing the same clothes as in previous years. I have decided to have a good clear out also when I return from holiday. Do I need an excuse to replenish my wardrobe??? I am beginning to feel more like myself today and can’t wait to get on the plane this afternoon. Yesterday we collected our youngest granddaughter from school for the first time. She was delighted to see us and ran out happy as though she had been going for years. This is only week three so long may it last. We celebrated later with family for her 5th birthday also so John and I then left to,a very hyper little girl ready for bed! Hope all,is good with you. Sending love and hugs as always. Judith xx

      Hi there Judith, I realise that when you get this you may well be away on your holiday, and I very much hope you enjoy it, and I’m glad to know that you are feeling far better in yourself. Funny how we’re all so much the same with our holiday clothes. I would say that’s as good an excuse as any for replenishing your wardrobe! I can just imagine your granddaughter’s face when she saw it was Nanny and Grandad picking her up. I’m glad she’s settled – Honey also seems to be finding it easier although she’s a lot more tired in the evenings. Mind you she’s sleeping better though! Let me know how your holiday went won’t you? Love Ali x

    Hi Ali ,welcome back your hollibobs sounds really good if I remember correctly wasn’t there a tv programme (I think bbc ) made in Agihos Nicoloas staring Wanda Venthham I think it was set in a restaurant, may be wrong but it was good ,so was the music.☺at the moment we are in Norfolk being battered by the gale force winds and rain, we had a heck of a job holding the awning down last night but succeed in the end ,the beginning of the week was lovely and warm,we went to Sandringham house for the dayit is only a mile away from the site we are staying at, if you haven’t been I highly recommend you make a visit, you can really see why the Queen calls it her favourite place to call home it really is homely, we were a lowed in the rooms all the royals use ,even in the garage where the car she uses on her visit’s there and the church is really tiny you felt as though you would be made welcome, do put it on your bucket list ,I have just had a text from Simon to say we have torental rain at home , oh happy days .much love Linda F xxx

      Ooh Linda, you’ve made me think now! Perhaps we should ask our fellow blog readers! I can’t for the life of me remember the name of the series but I’m sure it would have been beautiful if it was set there. So sorry to know that the weather in Norfolk has been so bad – we too had a dreadful time of it for a day or so, but it’s been stunning since Monday here, and I hope it will have been for you too. I’ve never been to Sandringham, but the way you’ve described it has definitely caught my interest. I know that my late grandfather was trained there in 2015 before he left for France to fight in the Great War. I’ve put it on my bucket list – big bucket! 🙂 Thanks for keeping in touch, love Ali xx

We’re thinking of returning to Crete next September and seeing the other half of the island! I hope that you’re well, and have had a chance to relax over the summer. Love Ali x

    Hi Ali! Welcome back lovely lady & thanks for sharing your fab photos of your Greek holiday! Today I obviously “got out of the wrong side of the bed” as have been in a stinking mood & the weather has been rotten- it has bucketed down ALL day so after a relaxing bath & reading your blog, I am now, thankfully chilled out & relaxed- OPA!! You know I ADORE Greece & so this has taken me right back to my hols in July & been a great contrast to the rapidly changing weather we have had this week. Glad you have been tucking into the Greek salads & mezes- they are the best, amazing how different the humble tomato tastes when it has grown under the Greek sunshine! I did catch some of the Lakeland show & found myself both laughing & wretching when you were presenting the drain weasel ha ha! Not as glamorous as a jewellery show but hey ho, it does the job. I do have some great news to share with you- went for my oncology check up last week & everything is fine & my consultant is pleased with me so I can go back in six months! 🙂 Such a relief & a weight off my mind as I am sure you understand. We will be going to Aviemore in five weeks for a holiday & will be going on a hill walk to see our adopted reindeers in the Cairngorms. It is fantastic & a great way to blow away the cobwebs. I do have a question for you- where is the strangest place you have ever made a QVC order from? Mine was a few weeks ago. We were at Mallory Park, Leicestershire watching a classic motorbike race when my mind suddenly drifted to birthday present ideas for a youngster in the family. I suddenly decided there & then to order a Cozee Home Unicorn Cuddly Buddy?! After four attempts on QCut (due to the fact I could not hear the automated options due to the roaring bikes) I walked up a grassy bank & managed to complete my order. I did have a giggle & thought of you instantly. I am sure your answer will be a much more glamorous one than mine. Have a wonderful week Ali & enjoy yourself.

    Love & Hugs

    Mandy xxx

      Dear Mandy, so good to hear from you, and to know of your fab news! I am sure that is a huge weight of your mind to know you’re clear for the next six months. Better yet, you feel so much stronger in yourself – onwards and upwards! You are SO right about the tomatoes in a greek salad, especially when you eat them in the sun. Colin and I bought some of the greek Salad herbs, and they do make a difference on the salad, but nothing tastes as good as eating out in the sunshine. I’ve never been to Aviemore, but I am certain you will have a fabulous time. I didn’t even know you could adopt reindeer – such much information to be gleaned from the blog eh? 🙂 I ordered some chocolate brownies from a public toilet once… not a very nice combination I know, but they were very clean toilets! I think I may pose that as a question on one of my shows and get folks to tweet in the answers – excellent! Again Mandy, I am so pleased for you that you are getting stronger and moving on with your life. Take care and thank you for keeping in touch, love Ali xx

    Good morning Alison, it’s just gone 5am and I can’t sleep so thought I’d do a quick catch up. Firstly Crete looks amazing and if I get to go abroad again I want to go there..stunning. what a lot you packed in. The fact you has a tiny car made me smile..years back me and John went to a wedding in Scotland and hired a car..we ended up with a Siecento..looked like a bright yellow Lego brick..it was teeny tiny and my hat box was too big for the boot!
    Westgate has been warm up until the strong winds came but just a slight chill as the wind is quite warm still but I know that is set to change. I’ve been back at school for what seems like ages and looking forward to A small break in Frinton on Sea with my twin sister and daughter Chloe who got her part time job at a Co Op about 10 mins away and craftily told them she had booked holiday. She started her make up course last week and seems to be going well so far. As she is working, she’s borrowed some money from my mum to buy her first car which is on the drive waiting to be tsxed and insured for 1st October. She has a little black Clio called Denzil…great condition 52 plate and only 47,000 miles on the clock. I am glad that she has her job and college as another batch of her friends ate off to uni today and she’s very emotional. Jack is also looking put for a car but has a ‘car man from the pub looking out for one.
    Dan and Gemma’s wedding was beautiful and although a very poignant day because of Gemma’s illness it was a day of joy and celebration. Of course there were tears, her dad did amazingly well with his speech but not a dry eye in the house..I can not imagine the emotions they are having to go through or indeed how you cope, but it was a fab day and I was so honoured to make their cake and gift it to them.
    Mum’s below sale, third time it’s been sold, has hit a hitch..again..our buyers solicitor isn’t recognised by his mortgage company! Mum signed her contract 2 weeks ago so we are hoping things are sorted out quickly. Mum continues to thrive in her residential hotel but she’s got a bony mass growing on the front of her head so we need to keep an eye on that. So that’s about all my news, keep safe in the strong winds. Love Mary xx

      Dear Mary, So lovely to catch up on all your news, and to know that you’re heading to Frinton on Sea with Chloe – well done her for letting them know she had holiday before she got stuck into the job full time! It’s years since I’ve been there, but I used to leave in Wivenhoe, and we would spend our weekends at Frinton, or Jaywick – seems like another life! That’s good for Chloe that she will be mobile from the 1st October, and I do hope that your Jack’s car man will find him a bargain too. There are some really good run arounds out there, but I always get the AA to check them over first. We got Lucy a lovely Nissan Juke which had barely any miles on it! Honey loves it and I think it looks a bit like a frog!

      I thought a lot about Dan and Gemma’s wedding after you sent me the photo of the beautiful cake you’d made for them. Like you, I don’t know how people cope in situations like this, and for her parents and all of the family and friends who were there to support them, it will have been so difficult. But what a magical occasion, and such wonderful memories made for you all.

      I am keeping everything crossed that the sale of your mum’s bungalow goes through – it is such a frustrating process, especially when the hold up is down to someone else, and there’s nothing you can do about it! Poor love, having to contend with that bony mass – it must be uncomfortable and you’re right, you need to keep an eye on it. I do hope you’re able to sleep a little better, and that school’s not getting you down. The seaside break will do you good I’m sure. Thanks as always for keeping in touch, love Ali xx

I’m pleased you liked the photos – I love looking back over them once I’m home – although the weather here this week has been almost as hot as it was in Crete!

    Hi Ali, what a lovely blog. Your holiday sounds fabulous, I was almost eating the fresh fish with you. Yummy!!
    We didn’t get away this year which is probably just as well as we’ve discovered we need a new roof! It’s going to be done in 2 weeks time so before the winter sets in.
    We had a lovely time with our Charlie though as we had him for 2 days every week during the school holidays. He mostly wanted to go to Matlock as he loved the water park. It was very welcome too in the glorious hot sunshine.
    He’s just had his tonsils out so is not very happy at the moment having a really sore throat. He will be better though once the soreness wears off. His tonsils were very enlarged and he used to be violently sick on lots of occasions which was horrible for him!
    I’ll get back to my surfing the QVC website now looking to spend my £25 voucher!
    Bye for now Ali. Love Sue xx

      Oh crikey, a new roof! That is quite a big job but definitely needed if we’re going to be seeing more of these high winds and arctic weather! I’m glad you’ve got the roofers in nice and early. How lovely for you to have Charlie for two days a week over the summer, although I do feel for him having had his tonsils out. Better though to be done while he’s still small, so he’ll forget about it all. Jack had them done when he was 14 and it was dreadful and the being sick is the worst bit! I’m glad you were able to look after him though. TLC is the best medicine. Good luck spending your voucher! Love Ali x

      Ooh Caroline, how lovely! We thought Agios Nickoulous was stunning and are hoping to return to the island next year and explore the other half! I will look out for the book Yannis – always enjoy a recommended read 🙂 I hope you have a wonderful time there and do let me know how you get on. Love Ali xx
