It’s Raining Men. & The Yeti Abi: Apologies for the lateness of this week’s upload, I’ve been in Amsterdam! When my friends and I planned this trip a few months ago, we had no idea that the weekend we chose happened to coincide with Amsterdam’s Gay Pride event. Imagine our surprise to wander down a quiet side street and find thumping dance music intersecting with another Latin beat from another party in the next block! I rarely say this about…

Kafka Abi: This week, we decided to take a favourite quotation and look at representing each half in our own way. My suggestion of Dolly Parton’s infamous “It costs a lot of money to look this cheap” was sidelined in favour of something a little more intellectual by Franz Kafka. And so we have this. The quotation put me in mind of the Aesthetic theory of The Line of Beauty which always puts me in mind of a Violin or…

More photos from the weekend! Sorry it’s a bit late in the day now, but hopefully a few of you will get a chance to see these! These are a little cuter than the last, mainly because there’s an adorable girl in pink involved. I love the light in the two darker at-dusk photos too — and this is my favourite ‘kid with balloons’ photo. Tomorrow… a photographic TMI… (it’s an experiment!)

Different aftertaste though.’ My host’s mother had cooked up the chunk of ‘whale’, served in a sauce made of its own gravy. It was underwhelming! I don’t mean that it tasted bad — it was lovely! — but obviously, after all of that foreplay, I expected a veritable…

I’m well aware that reading a thousand words of finely-crafted prose isn’t really what you want to read on the weekend (well, unless it’s smutty fan-fiction, then perhaps…) But that’s okay, because I didn’t want to write prose today; I just wanted to take photos, and share them with you! Here are some pretty photos from a barbecue we had earlier today. Roses and sunsets… enjoy, and have a nice weekend! (I was shooting up into the sunset, but I…

I woke up this morning to the best kind of surprise — well, the best surprise a single man can wake up to, anyway. Er, apart from that. You’ll be glad to hear that after my woeful plea for help last week I did, um, nothing. I watered the tomato plants a little more, and I pulled off some of the poorly lower shoots, but I still haven’t pinched them out. So there. And, get this, I was rewarded with……
