I have ten minutes left in this internet cafe so this is going to be a case of speed blogging.

After a week, I cracked – in a nice way, like a mature cheese – and bought a guitar. I could sense my fingertips becoming soft. After a month of playing for hours a day, they were hot-coffee-cup-pick-up hardened and I didn’t want to lose that. So I found one of two music shops and bought a cheap Chinese steel-string acoustic, a capo and a set of strings.

Now Cypriot detente is a fact, looking forward to visiting the north of the island in a couple of days, for a couple of nights. Also it’s now hot enough to justify taking the cover off the pool and adding some chlorine to make it nice and baby safe.

Oh the sunsets the fruit the birds and the British… but actually it’s a lot of fun, my first real proper holiday in over two years, and just in time for my precious insanity…
