The pitter patter of tiny feet

Well.. it's more like... things that go bump in the night


This is Riley, and he's up for adoption. We are fostering him for Bentham Pet Rescue. Apparently it is much better for homeless cats to stay in people's homes than at a cattery. He's been at the rescue since October and it is hard to imagine why he hasn't found a home as he is as big and furry a cat as you could hope for. He also plays games, demands to be stroked by head butting, and purrs whenever you go near him. He talks quite a lot and comes when called, and hasn't even broken any of our belongings yet. Having only been in the house only 24 hours, he still seems a little lost, wondering what is going to happen next. We are at home for quite a bit of the day, so we are hoping he will adjust to being a bit less nocturnal.

morning snow

jules' first rule of photography: seize the minute.

We went out just as it stopped falling and the snow was entirely blown and washed away by the next storm that came through in the afternoon.

winter sunrise

Ingleborough and Settle at sunrise this morning.

Sunrise on Ingleborough in the snow
No one drove past our house for quite a while, and the road outside Booths was an ice rink.

let's gloomy

British people try their very hardest to reflect the mood of the weather.

Ayr #3

After the shops shut down (Sept 2010), the pawnbrokers and charity shops moved in (May 2012). But now, they're moving out too!

Ayr

Actually, it probably isn't quite as bad as it looks. At least part of it is stupid town planning - new shopping centres have been built a few minutes walk further south, but Ayr, not being in a growth phase (obviously!), can't support any more commerce, and so the more northerly shops shut down. Indeed, a shiny new British Heart Foundation shop can be found a little further south, nestled between a closing down shelter charity shop and a second hand electronic gizmo store! Only red shops permitted in Ayr.
Ayr again

As you might imagine, Ayr can be quite fun for bargain hunting in the January sales. We've missed many things being away in foreign, and one of the many surprises is that we are wearing the wrong cycling uniform - we wear elegant purple and everyone else wears neon. James thought we would try out the trend (half-price from Ayr Mountain Warehouse). He's certainly the brightest thing around, and no doubt he will come in handy for flagging down passing helicopters, but it is probably a bit much for those of us sitting behind him on the tandem.

It is wonderfully freeing to be allowed to invent our own personal truth. Clearly, the ancient Japanese visited the windswept uplands of NW England ...and thus was the art of bonsai born. I wonder if they also brought the hippopotamus bones to our local caves.

B&W

Probably no one has noticed, but, as well as a cow phase, I have also been having a minor black and white phase...
The two phases can sometimes be combined to make a true masterpiece!

Maybe I shouldn't have given up the day job after all... oh well, too late now! :-) Moooo.
