Anna and and I went for a roam around what will be Leicester's new Cultural Quarter, and I spotted this.

Another gloomy day, another ghost sign.
Silver Street, Leicester

Ceri came round this evening. I made Banana, Apricot and Walnut Cookies.
N.B. All my recent photos have been taken on my mobile, hence the grainy texture and dull colours. My digital camera packed up during my trip to London last Saturday. :(

A brief sunny respite in the gloomy weather brought out this blossom on Clarendon Park Road.

Today I discovered that it was possible to find real countryside within walking difference! I couldn't decide which photo to choose to represent today, so I offer two: a lovely sun-mottled stream off Shady Lane just outside the village of Evington, and a view of Leicester and the hills beyond as revealed at crest of Evington Lane on the journey back into the city.

My collection of JaJ Pyrex 'Drinkups'. I need cash - can I possibly bear to part with them?

Old Co-op Works off Welford Road, Leicester (with a bit of Photoshop Express-supplied colour enhancement - I love it!).

Monday, 7th April 2008


This (clearly useless) photo was meant to illustrate that it was STILL snowing - in April (for the third day on the trot)! WTF?!

Sunday, 6th April 2008


'hug me'

Seen in Victoria Park. A lovely sentiment on a cold, snowy day.

The Lansdowne (favourite haunt of MS PhD students!), taken just after midnight (oops!).

Friday, 4th April 2008


I'd run out of ideas! Crap photo of my fairy lights taken on my mobile.

Pussy Willow (that was nearly my name, don't you know!) off London Road.

A feeble attempt at being artistic. This month's theme is 'walls', by the way.
