On the limits of camera phones

I grabbed this shot with my phone yesterday afternoon, trying to capture the beautiful light playing on the buildings.

And, well, the camera wasn’t up to it. Still work to be done there, I think.

The Warm Room

Winter is finally here which, frankly, is not great news for me right now. You see, the flat rennovation is still in full swing, and two rooms are yet to be plastered. When those rooms are done, we”ll put the central heating back in. Yes, that’s right, we have no central heating.

So, for now, our sole warm room is the bedroom. I brought an old electric heater back from my mum’s and it’s already doing good service

Could be worse…

Ducks outside the pub

Today is a pub lunch sort of day. I enjoyed bangers and mash in front of a roaring fire in a 15th century pub.

The pub actually keeps ducks and chickens, in a very free range manner. We had to chase a particularly stubborn chicken off the road outside the pub before we could sit down to eat.

Still, some exercise in the cold helps build up an appetite.

Winter’s Morning, Suffolk



Winter’s Morning, Suffolk, originally uploaded by Adam Tinworth.

In the last week, winter seems to have arrived. I’m up in Suffolk at the moment, visiting my mother, and woke to frost, ice and fog.

Ah, the joys of scraping ice off the car’s windshield…

The iTunes/Kate Bush Mystery

We in the Hellhole (our affectionate name for the flat we’re refurbishing) are firm believers in digital music – we just don’t buy CDs any more. In my case, it’s the combination of convenience and price, for my wife, it’s all about having fewer things cluttering up her living space.

So, I am hugely annoyed that the new Kate Bush album has yet to appear on iTunes. Each (New Music) Tuesday, I check in the hope that the album has appeared, but it doesn’t. Now, Charles Arthur has found a plausible reason why. It’s enough to drive me over to the Podsafe Music Network.
