Photos from Tuesday's walk

Here are the photos from Tuesday. The trouble with digital is that it's difficult to just upload them without taking the opportunity to tweak them a little. On the other hand, it's still quicker than waiting to finish off the roll and then waiting another few days for them to be processed. :)

I think this was the best of the bunch -- Cadair Idris being majestic. :)

Otherwise the quiet usefulness of the weekend continues. I still have to go and hack and slay more long grass in the garden and possibly go for a short cycle ride before doing some Welsh and some critting and updating a handout for tomorrow.

Onwards and upwards...

Writing progress

I didn't get out to hack and slay grass in the garden after all, but I did clear out a kitchen cupboard (where does all that out of date food come from?) and managed a bit of exercise in the form of a two mile walk looping around the bypass and playing fields to end up at the Spar in order to buy a bottle of wine, some tomatoes and little cheesecakes for dessert.

I'm slowly uploading the ten-year-old novel into my brain. I'm hoping I might actually get some new words this week, but I now have a circular diagram after transferring the old synopsis into the Excel spreadsheet. :)

I also phoned my Dad who is 87 today! He keeps remarkably well and has developed a taste for reading fiction. He's just embarked on an omnibus of P G Wodehouse Jeeves stories.

And now just time for a bedtime milky drink before heading off to bed.
