Accepting my invitation

Following a visit to Oldbould from Dylan & Chil recently, when I was introduced to the delights of this blog by Dylan, I've decided to take the plunge and make my first post - this one! I have no pics to publish just now as the digital camera is dead and a new one needs to be bought. So when the new camera finally makes an appearance, there will, eventually, be pics of allotment-grown, organic veggies. And who knows what?

Welcome to Siani

You can see why they call it the Harringay Ladder

...and it couldn't really look more different from Leopard's Hill Road

If you don't already have it download Google Earth from
it's free and you can actually zoom it and explore pretty much anywhere you like.

I'm in Nairobi next week for work, and we're both in Lusaka the week after, so look out for some African photos coming up.

Wet and windy London

A visit to the Tate Galleries and a wet and windy trip on the polkadot Damien Hurst boat resulted in these views!

Chil and Dylan framed against the embankment, St Paul's casting a watchful eye


Look at that sky!

It's grim oop North!

Here are some recent pictures taken in Manchester during my lunch break.

Hello everyone. Here is my first post on the blog. The picture on the left is a photo of the park that is a few metres up the street from where I live.

The one on the right was taken from my bedroom window. As you can see its snowing here in Birmingham and will apparently continue to do so until Sunday.

The bunny needed a new chair

One day a benefactor donated bootloads of dosh, and so the Bunny's wish was fulfilled and a brand new chair was ordered
