Work was all over the place today, well when I say all over the place I had to go in late due to the insurance assessors coming to inspect the damage to the car so that we can get the dam thing repaired. I have to say I have been fretting about this for ages. The damage is minor but the car was only 2 weeks old when the garage fell on it. Just scratches and grazes really...still I had it in my head some asshole of an assessor would come and question everything. I guess anything to do with cars I feel like someone is shafting me! Something I like to have control over myself I have to say! Anyway, he came and a nicer man you couldn't wish to meet, so I take it all back. He was very sensitive to the age of the car and well....a pleasure to meet. So I have taken myself out back and given myself a good sound thrashing to teach me a lesson. Oooo it smarts!
So the point of all that was I was late in and late home which makes the day feel kind of odd. Still it's Friday and that always deserves celebration. So I have with a few drinks and an attempt to get me post up as it should have gone up ages ago but has been delayed for the above!

Another from Crete and another from the mountain village of Μεταξοχώρι (Metaxochori) way out at the end of nowhere. This image is a kind or sister image to the previous image....if you spin on your heels top the left then this is the view before you leave by the door on your left. There you go you might as well move right in as I have orientated you! You remember the village that is slipping down the hill? Anyway I knew that there were a stack of interiors to explore here so I was back there with that in mind really. I wasn't disappointed....many photos taken, a few places returned to and many earmarked to be looked at next time. I even managed to gain access to places that on the last trip had been secure. No forced entry I hasten to add but perhaps some other photographer had preceded me...who knows! Fancy a wander around the area? Yeah of course you do! Here's an aerial view. There are more from here just trying to ease them out so as not to bore you to death!

I'm getting off at the next stop
Will you leave with me so that we can be seen
By my old love who's standing over there
She left me so stunned that I walk around scared

Wide eyes, I think that I've seen you
And I need you to do this for me
Wrap both your arms around me
And act like I'm all that you need

And so it went like that and she agreed to get off
With me by her side, 3 blocks from her stop
And we stepped to the street and she kissed my cheek
And whispered words that I won't repeat

Wide eyes, I think that she saw us
But I didn't look up to see
Wrap your warm arms around me
And let's go get something to eat
