Could anyone critique my diet please?

Hi,
Firstly this is my first post,so hello to all. I've been lurking here for quite a while and have gained some invaluable knowledge from you lot so thanks for that.
I've read ToxicToffee's article on posting your diet,so here goes.

First my stats. I'm 37 y/o male,5'7" 153lbs with 14.8% bodyfat measured with the accumeasure callipers.
My goals as stupid as it sounds is a tricky one,I've been training on a 3 day a week full body workout for the last 4 months just using compounds,Squats,deadlifts,widegrip pullups,bench press,shoulder press and dips.
I originally started this to lose some weight,but got bitten by the bug when I started to see a change in shape.I've lost over a stone in weight.
I should add that I'm a postman and walk for 3 miles a day up and down steps with 16kgs bags on my back.

Now I've reached this weight I can't decide whether to continue losing the bodyfat,I've been told by others it would be better to get down to a single figure bodyfat% and start a lean bulk from there?What do you lot think??
So as goals go,yes I want to add some lean muscle.

Anyway sorry for the long intro,here's the diet.

04.15 am Get up
04.30 am 40g of whey in water,Oats with some blueberries and a banana.
07.00am 2 oat cakes with whole earth peanut butter,1 apple.
09.00 am (I'm out on my delivery)
09.30am 1 seeded bagel with 2 slices of roast beef.
12.00 1 smoked haddock,wholewheat pasta a little olive oil and lemon,4 brocolii
2pm 1 banana and handfull of almonds.
3pm Train for just under 1 hr.
4pm 40g whey in water with a scoop of glucose powder.
5pm 1 bagel with 2 slices of beef.
8pm Turkey,veg stir fry.
10.30pm half a pot of quark with some peanut butter and a tsp of flax oil.
11pm sleep.

I drink at least 3 lts of water a day,on Saturdays I have a cheat meal which is usually a pizza or steak, jacket pot and a big pudding.sticky toffee pudding...mmmm pudding.
Not taking any supplements other than the whey and a little flax oil.
I don't really weigh my foods I just eat and see what happens,probably get flamed for this! I don't even know the amount of calories that are in this whole lot,sorry.

Anyway I think thats it,thanks to all and i look forward to any replies.

Cheers

    It's quite hard to critique your diet unless you have clear goals for yourself.

    I.e. do you want to cut or do you want to bulk.

    Yeah sorry I should of made it clearer re the goals.
    At the moment I do want to lower my bodyfat a bit more from the present 14.8%,this diet is working all be it slowly, but thats fine.
    So I really want to cut without losing to much mass.
    Once I'm happy with my bodyfat I'll start a bulk.

    Cheers

    23:00 sleep, 04:15 wake do you really only sleep 5 hours a day? that's not good if so, generally i believe 7-9 hours sleep is good mate!

    No I usually have 1.5-2 hrs in the afternoon on training days and 2-3 hrs in the afternoon on non.
    Try and get at least 6.5 most days,the joys of working for Royal mail,but at least the gym is fairly empty when I go.

    That is ok, although there are better choices than bagels.
