I’m off.

On holiday that is, from this Friday.

Although I doubt that any reader of this blog will miss me due to the lack of decent material over the last few months. Every blogger has that moment when looking at his keyboard, he just sighs and stares into space.

Anyway, I’m off to the sunny island of Crete where I will spend two weeks of reading, eating, drinking, and generally relaxing.I’ll have plenty of room to relax in as well.

As there were only going to be four of us this year we applied for a luxury villa that would accommodate six. However we were offered a villa that sleeps twelve persons for the same price. How could you turn that down? We’ve stayed in that villa before and it really is superb.

So think of me having to endure fourteen days of hot weather, cheap booze and fags, and the ability to do what I want to do, when I want to do it.

I might even write the occasional blog post rubbing it in.


  1. Ah, Greece. Sunshine, laid back lifestyle, ciggies at 3.90 euros for 20, rather indifferent wine I fear and alcoholic spirits almost twice the price of that in UK, thanks to the increase in taxes by the government which believes it's revenue will increase somewhat. What they have found, however, is that no one is buying spirits, although there is a thriving barter system where the spirits are not actually sold and so taxes are not due. Best make a trip to Aldi or whatever if you fancy a tipple in the evening.
