must keep my camera handy and see if i can add to it.
there seem to be a lot of entertaining instructional videos cropping up on youtube, including, how to refresh 5 hours old sour coffee and how to make your fleece like brand new, more here.

just a taster
more to come, but here is a taster photo from our recent visit to the west coast of scotland. scotland was as ever, wonderful, beautiful and a little bit wet. the view is from the very well-preserved ruin, castle tioram.
this most recent visit north of the border was made particularly special as we travelled up there on the caledonian sleeper, the best train in the world.
another highlight was the pine marten that visited to rummage through the bin. it took a bit of debate to narrow it down to a pine marten, not surprising given they are one of the rarest mammals in the country.
>>update>> mandy got a good picture of the pine marten.

been to the rather enchanting sheffield cemetery, where apparently 87,000 people are buried. there aren't that many gravestones but those that are there are wonderfully overgrown, ivy clad or just slightly askew.

simple pleasures on saturday
- eating a lovely meal that wasn't slaved over for hours, ta nigel.
- tidying up my bookmarks. a satisfying task.
- currently liking netvibes. started using it a couple of weeks ago and all of a sudden there is a bumper load of new things to fiddle with.
