Through the Window 29/1

I’m breaking the rules with this one. It said, look through the window for a full minute and write about what you’ve seen. I had no time to stand and stare today.  A five period day. In three rooms. Doesn’t sound difficult until you realise you go d10, e6, d10, e6. Meeting over the otherside […]

Home… Soil… Rain 18/1

Short one on this free association task. I shall simply refer to today Woken up by winds of 70 miles an hour. Zorro slept through it. Bomber slept through it until the temperature dropped. I had to put coal on the fire; warming the place up until he fell asleep. Alistair fared worse. He needed […]

October holiday: 5&6

Tuesday and Wednesday saw us sailing the boat to our moorings. Day1 saw a 6 hour journey from Earith to Ely. I took the helm for twenty minute stretches. A lot of input from Tim (our instructor) to start, and one hairy moment – when special awareness issues struck as we met a boat wider […]
