We were out and had 30 minutes to kill before swimming this morning so we went to lick the windows at ToysRus - Griff checking out the Doctor Who stuff, Ariana the pink barbie heads and me thinking about a new MP3 player. Do you know they now sell toothbrushes that play music directly into your brains while you're brushing? I wouldn't mind except that they only play rubbish tunes.
They also have trolleys up to their axles in autumn leaves.

About a year and a half ago I started cycling into the office instead of catching the bus. The trick to staying motivated is feeling blessed in that I get to ride through such beauty every day ... even at 7 in the morning.
Oh and sometimes when you get into the office you have one of those days that's a bit of a drag - like today - but you know, you win some, you lose some.

It's not graffiti that's the problem but low quality stuff.

Just finished re-reading Lord of the Rings. Haven't read it for about
20 years and coming back to it, saw lots I hadn't seen the first few
times around. It's still a wonderful visionary book, a bit ponderous
in parts, but when I finished I felt a tiny pang of grief ... just a
tiny one and only for a moment, but it was there.
Anyway, these are from a forest of twisted trees we strolled through
the other day. These pictures reminded me a little of the forests in

To celebrate its 40th year as a town, Milton Keynes gallery
commissioned this plywood tower, built from a flat pack. You can
climb to the top and feel it swaying in the breeze. By now, the
children are used to me saying 'we don't need to go any higher do we?'
and carrying on with gusto right to the very top. I guess not all
silly fears are passed on to children.
