What does one call an assemblage of philosophers? A 'think', perhaps?

Creepy goings-on in Princess Road East.

My latest knitting project.

Tuesday, 24th June 2008


Someone has guerilla-labelled the Department of Museum Studies! And then I found this. And then this. Hmmm, interesting...

Inspired by this: Me in the daisies on Victoria Park.

On the way into town.
London Road/Granby Street

And, to make up for the lack of photo yesterday, here's a quick snap of another ghost sign I spotted in the Market Place.

Saturday, 21st June 2008

Still ill, and ashamed to say that I completely forgot to take my photo for the day (the first time this year!). :( But I really didn't do anything exciting enough to warrant a photographic record. I just about managed to get up and dressed, stumble down to the Co-op for provisions, and stagger back home.

Ill. I have a filthy cold and a hacking cough. About the only activity I could muster the energy for today was listing this retro bedspread (an Oxfam bargain!) on eBay. Finally convinced myself that I don't really need it, so might as well try and earn a few pennies.

Evacuated from the University Library (it was a false alarm).

growth

I just find this pleasant.

This has been on the Waterloo Road pedestrian walk way for at least a year - I've spotted it before, but only just got around to snapping it today on my way back from town (needed retail therapy to recover from three days of NaMu!).

Tuesday, 17th June 2008


My most favourite ghost sign to date! Spotted in the taxi on the way to my CBT assessment. I just had to go back to snap it.

Narborough Road, Leicester

Day 1 of NaMu and dinner in the Garendon Carvery in the Charles Wilson Building. University Catering out do themselves. ;)

Ominous clouds above Victoria Park, Leicester.

Friday the 13th - Unlucky for some...but I went to London to do some fieldwork at the British Museum and the Victoria & Albert Museum.

Mao badges at the British Museum.

Perfect little triangles of tofu sizzling in a pan. Me trying out a new recipe.

I love the way the sunlight bounces off the Attenborough Tower's brand new windows. ;)

Beautiful flawless blue sky. I love the summer (when we get it)!



And for completeness, here's a pic of my knitting project, complete. Sadly it is a little on the large size, but nothing a couple of judiciously placed safety pins can't solve. ;)

Nearly finished!

Saturday, 7th June 2008


Spotted on Stoneygate Road.

An afternoon spent in the Library reading VERY old copies of The Left News.

Time to do the old tax return (£225 rebate - can't wait to get my grubby little hands on that!).

Monday, 2nd June 2008


Ghost building on campus, adjacent to the Fielding Johnson Building. (I'm spending a lot of time in the Library at the moment.)

Sunday, 1st June 2008


Another ghost sign on Highfields Street - I'm not sure how I managed to miss it before. Shame it's so faded; would love to be able to read what its says.

Saturday, 31st May 2008


I love my NEW new camera!

Day 2 of the Suffolk Show. Not long after this photo was taken my naughty new camera died. :(

Setting up the Suffolk Show: the symbolism of the rainbow flag was lost on the W.I.!
