Well the shopping got done yesterday....took me about 4 hours which is quite long when you are only shopping for one person! But it is done....at one stage I was for calling it a day and returning to finish. So glad I didn't as the pressure would have been on. A little tiredness was well worth it in the end.
Today has been a bit odd as well, worked this morning then at lunchtime we had our works Christmas meal. I don't eat lunch or drink lunchtime so this threw my system into a whirl! Had a really good time but by 6 I was done. Five hours of drinking and eating and I was ready for bed! Is that middle age? Not sure...perhaps lack of practice. It felt very odd on the bus with the workers and shoppers going home....felt slightly detached from reality. What also feels odd is that I didn't carry on drinking...moved onto to mint tea when I got home, so here I am 1130 and well sober...have to say the typing seems more difficult or perhaps just different! Also I have drank so much of the bloody stuff I can't stop peeing now! See, I knew there was a downside to drinking lots of tea....need a catheter fitting next time I indulge in a tea binge
Another shot from Crete of probably my favourite set of derelict windmills! Well I have certainly photographed them a lot. I'm trying to catch them in all seasons, perhaps then I'll be able to judge when they are at their most beautiful. This was the first time I had photographed them so late in the year. In the summer the sun is harsh but high so doesn't get in the way. This time of year it was a softer light but the sun low which made framing difficult at times as you were almost looking into the sun. Anyhow here is a little aerial view of where they are. If you look carefully on the map it appears as if there are about 13 of them, I keep meaning to count them whilst there as the map is a little vague! Have a pan out and a browse about.....the two villages to the south of the windmills are Kastelli(Καστέλλι) and Fourni(Φουρνή).
it’s when you get older
and the tables turn a little
that you realise
life isn’t what you thought it would be
like aching joints that time forgot
a cruel sea
like you and your shattered soul
and I can’t tell you
what it costs
because all I’ve got
is rust and loss
