Can't help thinking of the song from Pirates of Penzance ("A Paradox") when I am folding laundry. "A pair of socks, a pair of socks, a most ingenious pair of socks..."

Stones from the beach in Wales. Now back in London again after my mostly unplugged interlude.

We are staying at a youth hostel in a former lifeboat station. Just up the beach from us is a beautiful ruined stone building, which we visited last night, in the dark, in light rain.

Port Eynon, Gower Peninsula, Wales. Just after sunrise. (I got asked to be an extra chaperone for a school environmental service and leadership trip - what a delight!)

View from the train window, headed from London to Swansea, Wales.

Two glass candlesticks...

A small brown leaf from the front hall floor - they drift into the house after us...

As it dries, it curls like a hand, or a bird's claw.

All that was left of this particular cookie. (Homemade, chocolate chip - they don't last long.)

Bought instead of cut flowers.

Small, but powerful.

...but is it for me?

Again. Closer.

We've been waiting for these to ripen - I think they're almost ready.

New red belt, bought at a street market, and adjusted for correct sizing on the spot.

Still have the cold.

Spent the evening thinking about boardgames and time. (The link to the workshop I took seems to be archived, but here's a blog post by our workshop leader.)

Putting quarters of lemon in my tea - warding off a cold.
