zx spectrum startup screen

A few of the things that make life a little more bearable:
- drinking tea when you're really thirsty
- musty books
- the bit of floor just below a window sill
- the film "If..."
- really good poetry
- remembering your first ZX Spectrum

Easy being green

trees outside the window
pot plant
shades of green paint
I think I've used every shade of green known to man in my current piece of work.

selection of old photos
The fruits of a browse around town. Rescuing discarded pet photos from second-hand shops is a favourite pastime of mine. And who can resist a novel about talking woodland creatures...?!

Curtain up

running water
sea salt
shower curtain
By utilizing the little-appreciated skill of "avoiding work", you can get lots of household chores done very easily. Today the shower curtain needed a good clean, and by adding a bit of salt to the water, you can keep the mould at bay a little longer! Tomorrow I will do some work, promise...!

Holiday blues

misty mountain
sea and surf
sea cliffs
First post, so not much here at the moment, but hopefully there will be soon. It’s always difficult to come back after a great holiday...
Anyway, can’t stare at holiday snaps all day - there’s work to be done!
