The post-holiday blues

(To be sung on a porch on with a guitar with a missing string and a glass of something alcoholic by your side)

Oooh I took me on holiday to the land of sun
I had such fun just me and my son
Skiathos was the name of the Greek Isle
It was so hot we couldn't walk a mile

Da na da na...

But now I'm back with no sand under my feet
It's raining here on my grey old street
I tried to smile but I said to my Muse
It's no dang good I got the post-holiday blues....

Enough of that nonsense!! Well, I came home from my Greek hols yesterday and found the theme I'd missed at Inspiration Ave was 'the blues'. First thought was the azure waters of the Aegean - or were they turquoise? Or perhaps a bit of both? Are you jealous yet? Well, I'm certainly jealous of the folks still there under that blue sky

I didn't drive or touch a computer all week. I slept loads. I discovered a beach that appeared to have been sprinkled in diamond dust. I have so much inspiration and many stories to share of my travels, but will leave you for now with this blue sea to dream upon... a blue door on a blue balcony topped by a blue railing and sky and some blue shoes (not suede, but plastic).

Now I have to catch up on what I missed in Blogland, before decide on which creative idea I brought back with me to act upon first... Hmm... decisions decisions....


  1. A beautiful trio of pictures - you certainly make it sound like paradise,

  2. My buckets need to visit this place! I guess in a place like this relaxing is MANDATORY! Gorgeous pics (loving the door).
