Solstice

Lovely start to the day, Hannah Cerro & Liam Terry (ex-students of mine) popped by to do a bit of paperwork.  What a lovely pair they are.  I took Mum to Sainsburys, and as I leaned against a pillar just outside it reminded me so much of taking Nanny Booth around exactly the same shop:  What? 10, 15 years ago?  Stormy as a bucket full of Vulture droppings, the wind and rain ceaseless today.

Tonight I’m driving up to ‘Limply Stoke’ (no, really) almost as good as ‘Loose Chippings’ so, we’ll see what we see won’t we?

 

 

Storms the Norm.

Seems all week we’ve been buffeted by these things sweeping in from the West, a couple a day.

This morning, just after 6.30 it was dead still, big moon,stars, about 3.5degrees.

Later during the workaday haze the clear blue sky reminded me to take a Proper Look (not a glance, but keep looking out – let the receptors drink in the distance & colour), and let the change of focus ease the eye-strain from constant monitor scrutiny. “You’ve missed a bracket there”  or  “that style code is out” etc.

We didn’t do a lot. The last week before Christmas seems to infect pretty well all of them. And I’m the worst.
Tonight they’re back. Blacker clouds than the encroaching night, and the hammering of the rain on Mum’s conservatory roof.

Starting out . . .

Welcome.

I need a more ‘grown up’ platform for my various musings, and although I’ve hosted the Wonderful WordPress sites before myself, I thought this method might do better in terms of accessibility (for me, and you , dear reader . . . . )
