Hi Maggy and Fiona,
We have to look on the bright side. Fiona you're posh, a bottle of chilled Boutari rose, I go for the Diellas Vino Bianco, 5 litres for 5.80 euros. That rocks my boat.
Take care ladies, we can weather the storm.

If you met me and my husband you wouldn't say we were posh. Born and brought up in a council house but my husband always says that I won the lottery when I married him. Not sure I agree with him on that though. I will have to give Diellas Vino Bianco a try and see how it compares, then I can drink five times as much.
Maggy, I like my glass to be full and enjoy the process of getting it to empty, after a few of them I have not a care in the world

Love your post, I and hubby too were brought up in council houses, an' right proud I am of it too. Dragged ourselves up by our bootstraps we did.
Seriously though, have you tried Diellas rose wine. Doesn't come in the 5 litre barrels like the white, I think they're 1.5 litre bottles, but some discerning friends of ours, who always bought bottled rose wine are now converts to Diellas placky bottles of wine. (You know who you are!)
Give it a go, look after the pennies etc. etc.

Ah, Diellas wine - yum!!! Comes a very close second to our own but when that runs out, well, bring it on, and lets face it, where in the UK could you buy wine like that, at that price!!! And after a few glasses, its easy to forget the latest electricity bills, for a while anyway!!!

I have quickly skimmed this thread and notice that one of the problems you have encountered is with paying your phone bill. Before anyone shouts, I know that others have suggested that you pay it online.
Have you tried that? I don't think that you have mentioned whether you have or not.
I recently received a phone call offering me free landline calls in Greece, 300 minutes of calls to mobiles in Greece and 24Mb broadband for a little over €71. As this was cheaper than my normal bill I jumped at it.
Needless to say, I checked my bill and sure enough everything was as offered. Great I thought! Then reading the bill further, I noticed that they were offering a further €2.50 off your next bill if you paid online. (http://oteshop.ote.gr/).
Being a bit on the mean side, I checked it out; found that this was indeed the offer and promptly paid my bill. It was dead easy! Try it if you haven't already!
To get back on topic ... Lived here 10 years. Built our own house. Had dire problems with Mekanikos, Lawyer, IKA and builders. Would we sell up and move back from whence we came? Not on your life!
Without wishing to cause offence, most of the people that we meet who regret building or buying here are those that thought of it as an investment. Fifteen years ago? Maybe. The last ten years? Not a hope in hell!
Have a nice day!
