Last weekend, I had my first experience of one of the most British of things: the village show. One of my friends lives in a small village just outside Canterbury, and she was participating in their autumn village show. All the things you would expect to find at a village show were there - tasty-looking […]
I might have overdone the frames for this week’s theme! The photo is the middle is a door at Canterbury Cathedral. The ones round the outside, starting at the top left and going clockwise are: the Heilandskirche in Sarcow (sorry website is in German), stonework on Rochester Cathedral, underneath that is my kitchen window, to […]
We went to Berlin for a wedding at the weekend. It’s a very beautiful city and the wedding was lovely. I’ve been spending a bit too much time messing about with Picasa today.
I forgot it was the summer solstice yesterday, but I took these photos because the evening light was so nice. It never looks quite as good in photographs (or at least not my photographs), but still.
It is a horrible, grey and wet day here today. I think the weather is affecting my brain, so today’s offering will not contain many words, but will mainly made up of more photos of an also rather grey and dark Oxford.
I went to Spring Harvest (which I keep rather vaguely describing to people as “a big Christian thing”) over the Easter weekend. I would write more about it, but I’m still processing the stuff I learned and experienced, so writing about it in public will have to wait, if indeed this ever happens. In summary, […]
Yesterday, I worked from home due to no trains running because of the snow. I can’t say that I did a full 7.5 hours work, but then I probably don’t do this when I’m actually in the Library of Doom either. At least I got some things done so I didn’t have to do them […]
The sink in the picture is in the toilets at the Viking Museum at Borg on the Lofoten Islands in Norway. I took a photo of it because it was the biggest handbasin I’ve ever seen. Much more interestingly, the museum includes a reconstruction of a Viking hall. Unsurprisingly, it reminded me a lot of the […]
Due to having a husband and a father who are both rather fond of ships, I found myself spending most of yesterday afternoon and evening/night on a ship in Southampton harbour watching the final departure of the QE2 from British waters. It wasn’t exactly my idea of an enjoyable way to spend time, especially as […]
