Recently, I recieved a comment – which got lost in the great 2011 Blogger crash – that if I was on on holiday then “I don’t blog, therefore I am not…”
It’s a fair comment, and quite witty I thought. Anyway, as you read this I am reposing in a Greek taverna swigging a cappuchino and a Ouzo, or perhaps lounging on my balcony with a glass of the good old 5 star Metaxa. So, basically, I don’t really care.
I was in Turkey and Greece a few weeks back as you will have gathered from recent posts but I have had this little repose in the diary for quite a while, a chance to catch up with my friend Old Sawbones for a good old moan about what needs putting right in the world.
I am hoping this will turn out to be a better repose than the last one – it’s certainly going to be a damn site cheaper – and it’s nice to be just kicking back for a while. I don’t care if the plants are all dying in the garden at home. I don’t even care if the exchange rate is crap and the Greeks have raised their VAT again. I’m happy…
Oh, and for the uneducated amongst you here’s a short lesson in the fine art of Metaxa. The 3 star is for mixing with Coke, the 5 star is for drinking and the 7 star is for flogging to tourists.
And no, please don’t put water in my Ouzo.
I’m back at the weekend and then have a few weeks at home before popping off to the Arctic to shoot some polar bears…
