There was a time when I would have stayed up until 2am messing with me post just to get it up at the time I like to do it. All a bit OCD I think! Perhaps it's a post 50 don't give a shit...not sure anyway I decided to make a cup of Horlicks® and take myself to bed like a proper old man and post this morning all refreshed. So here I am...trying to bloody post but being thwarted at every turn!
I did mention a blackbirds nest in the garden yesterday but forgot to mention the blue tits that are nesting in a box as well. All very exciting. I love spring, so much hope for a miserable bastard like me. Did the grass cutting thing yesterday, first cut of the year and now that will encourage it to grow and so defines my spring and summer...stopping the garden from taking over. 5 miles of bloody hedge trimming will be next!

Today's photo is another of my abandoned interiors which I really enjoyed taking on the last trip to Crete. They are coming together nicely into a series which was kind of my intention. This one was taken in the village of Krioneri (Κρυovέpi) which is near the north east town of Sitia (Σητεία). It was an irritating journey in that I had driven for bloody ages in the hope I could get through a road only to find that my VW Polo didn't have the off road capabilities that were needed to continue the journey so I had to back track...which I hate! Sorry can't supply you with an aerial photo as this place is quite near the empty army base of the other day and the map is such poor quality it's not worth posting!

I've long since retired, my son's moved away
I called him up just the other day
I said, "I'd like to see you if you don't mind"
He said, "I'd love to, Dad, if I can find the time
You see my new job's a hassle and kids have the flu
But it's sure nice talking to you, Dad
It's been sure nice talking to you"

And as I hung up the phone it occurred to me
He'd grown up just like me
My boy was just like me

And the cat's in the cradle and the silver spoon
Little boy blue and the man on the moon
When you comin' home son?
I don't know when, but we'll get together then son
