And another month passes...


The view from the office this morning...

Lovely first thing...


Compiling this week's podcast - eschewing the random number generator in favour of recent acquisitions...

Also listening to some Bowie covers of our own making through the years...

Meanwhile, there appears to be a wasps' next under Crispycat Towers...


The solution is to let it run its course, apparently...

Some looking at monies in and monies out and trying to identify a goodly input last September, caused me to consult the blog - to no avail - but the pics from around that time caused me to once again bring the turntable through to Crispycat HQ and give it a wee spin...


Some Hadyn...


More of the same (on CD) in the car as we headed to "exciting" shops on a couple of quests...


...the most boring way to spend a Sunday afternoon...


However, both completed...

To my mum's, where fence provisions have arrived and are in preparation...


On good form today was the auld yin, although she appears to require a new fridge freezer...

That will be sorted shortly...

For Anne's mum, a new TV seems to be on the agenda...

It's all go...

A temporary solution is Kitty's old pink M&S TV/DVD thing from the attic...

Jane, Bobby and the kids are in FLA right now and sending me pics of sunshine and beaches, so I e-mailed a few back to Bob of the gathered throng...




...and of the tasty fayre...

Chicken Parmagiano...


...tasty potato based things...


...home-made gooseberry tart...


A snail was guarding the gate as we exited...


Home, to put in place new acquisitions...



The view from the office this evening...


...as "Fake or Fortune" was enjoyed - spoiler - fake this week...

Then, an old thing on the Tivo, Rick Stein's long weekend in Berlin, brought back happy memories...

Closed the day by reminding myself of work carried out in May and already forgotten about...

Lights out...

Highlight of the Day : Sorting stuff...
