Photo Article from the Greek Hovel - the Eco loo is almost ready for use

As you can see below, the little room in the Bat Room, the eco-loo room is almost ready. Fear not, there is a sliding door which locks in any odours as well as an extractor fan.  As you can see there is plenty of reading material. Euro loon Jonathan Price will no doubt approve of the positioning of "Castle of Lies" the definitive history of the EU, by Uncle Chris Booker, next to the loo roll.  But we are not quite there yet.

First up I need a bucket to go inside. That is not hard. And a receptacle for the sawdust you throw in after using the loo. The man making the windows and doors has already dropped off a big plastic bag of the stuff.

Meanwhile, Gregori the snake killer, and his men are, right now, constructing three humanure pits, one to use each year in the cycle of creating "black earth" for my olive trees. These will be up-market pits, each one metre cubed with three stone walls and one removable plank wall at the front. Photos of those will follow on Sunday when they are completed. And at that point i shall stop having to time my visits to the Kourounis taverna quite so carefully, in order to use its "facilities"

A touch of Aunt T on A Level Results day – Daughter Olaf sails into Oxford

My sister T spent her entire school career coming home from exams insisting that she had screwed up. It would subsequently emerge that she had finished top of the class every time. Okay my hard working younger sister did not get into Oxford but she gained entrance to a place in the Fens which is, I gather, almost as good.
