Road to somewhere
Pole in a field

Clumps, up and down and up and down and up and down and back, via the river of life.

Met lots of lovely people when Fay opened her studio for artweeks, with lots of lovely friends helping with tea, coffee, and cake. Lots. Of. Cake.

Thank you to everyone that helped and for everyone that donated!

Damage to the overhead lines… Your journey may be disrupted

Damage to the overhead lines this morning between Reading and Paddington. An incident closing the lines this evening. Total door-to-door time commuting today: 7 hours 24 mins. Lovely.

Ewoks Sleep Anywhere


Cats Sleep Anywhere

Cats sleep anywhere, any table, any chair.
Top of piano, window-ledge, in the middle, on the edge.
Open drawer, empty shoe, anybody’s lap will do.
Fitted in a cardboard box, in the cupboard with your frocks.
Anywhere! They don’t care! Cats sleep anywhere.

Granny came down (up?) to help with Artweeks prep.

Flatjack (or is it flapjack?) yummyness too.

Ortlieb #2

Ortlieb #2

After 8 years of faithful service, keeping clothes, books, laptop and morning pastries warm and dry, Ortlieb #1 is retiring. The split in the base finally deciding that no amount of gaffer-tape will keep it closed. The ideal replacement, Ortlieb #2 of course.
