Tests done, of course they never tell you any results. You worry that you need the test then worry whilst you wait for the result! They say oh call the surgery next week...so next week it is. Antibiotics have done the trick although I think I have picked up Jan's streaming cold and the antibiotics seem to be suppressing that which is good! Five days no booze now and feel great.....feel bright and am waking up very bright, that's not to say I'm not drinking any more...what are you crazy! But this is probably the longest I have gone in 15 years so on that basis it won't do me any harm to see what the real world is like.
The weather over the holiday has been pretty awful here so pretty much no inclination to go out, just take drugs and play with Christmas presents. There is also the mountain of food to plough through, enough Turkey to feed a small army, tangerines, Satsumas, nuts you name it. I guess and weight loss gained from my 2000 Calorie a day drinking has been replaced by food. Ah well, almost over. No bloody 12th night here....New Years Day cards the lot come down I need normality back.

Today's photo, well it was taken in November. I posted a similar photo about 3 weeks ago from my September trip. The first one was rather a mess due to processing issues. It had it's own charm but as it wasn't what I had intended I went back to re-shoot it. If you are interested then here is the original photo. What was odd after re-taking the shot and getting it processed is how far off of the mark I was with regard to taking the shot from the same spot! Anyhow this is take two, see what you think. Anyhow here is a little aerial view of the area. If you look carefully on the map it appears as if there were 13 or so there at one stage. Have a pan out and a browse about.....the two villages to the south of the windmills are Kastelli(Καστέλλι) and Fourni(Φουρνή).

They hung a sign up in out town
"if you live it up, you won't live it down"
So, she left Monte Rio, son
Just like a bullet leaves a gun
With charcoal eyes and Monroe hips
She went and took that California trip
Well, the moon was gold, her Hair like wind
She said don't look back just Come on Jim

Oh you got to
Hold on, Hold on
You got to hold on
Take my hand, I'm standing right here
You gotta hold on
