Fishy Circumstances

The week so far

It's been a rich, wonderful, tasty touristic week.

Lunch with ladymoonray. A walk to see the telectroscope. Dinner at Baltic with easterbunny, aca, haggisthesecond, and naxos. Lunch with an antiquarian bookseller and pittenweem. Productive grading sessions. The striking Chapman Brothers exhibit at the White Cube gallery with fjm and chilperic. A mildly disappointing William Curley Dessert Bar trip (due to ill and thus absent chef). Tortellini with a rich variety of cheeses. A visit to the closed Thames Barrier with easterbunny and ebonyrae in the most perfect of weather. A visit to the Sarre Windmill. An impromptu trip to see the lovely Herne Windmill. A walk beachside in the declined resort town of Herne Bay. Pork, pineapple, onion, and a spicy Indonesian Redang sauce, all stewed. Lunch at the local Gordon Ramsay pub with houseguest. Tomorrow's the BSFA's AGM.

Our visiting pittenweem left us this afternoon for futher travels.

I have hundreds of photos and need to clear more files off of my hard drive in order to upload them, a recently developed problem. It's not possible to have a hard drive which is too large.
