Greek animals great and small

This time last week I was in Ithaca.  My body is back in the UK – I know this because of things like the sudden drop in temperature and the number of e-mails I’ve got through this week.  My head though – I think that is still lying on a sunbed, or getting lost on a mountain.

I suspected this when my first instinct on seeing wet roads on Monday was not that it had been raining – no, I assumed that someone had been washing the roads.  Then I got lost so on a straight road in London that someone actually stopped to offer me help (and anyone who spends any time in London know that never happens!).  And there was that work conversation I was having where mid sentence I completely forgot that I was talking, let alone what I was going to say next…

So as my head is still there, I thought I’d post a last few photos from my holiday:

There were A LOT of  very big spiders over there (particularly problematic when you are climbing a mountain and have to remove around 50 webs across the path.  And big spiders spin big webs.)  This one was called Boris.

THis one ant dragged this piece of foil past our villa, up steps, over a hose pile, past the next villa and to the ant house.  There's probably something inspiring to say about that, but as I already said, my brain is not currently inhabiting my body.

    Lucky! I want to get lost in the world. Well, not lost lost. I hear vacationing by yourself is therapeutic. Now on my bucket list <3

      The cats (especially that kitten) were just lovely. Boris – the spider who lived by our villa was actually quite cool. I tried feeding him bread crumbs by throwing them into his web, but he was not impressed and somehow managed to push them out. It was like he was saying ‘no wings, no legs, why would I want that?!’ :o)

talk to me here , if you fancy :o)
