Heath horses & Paws for thought. Seb: As always, a bit of scary synergy occurring here — it’s almost like ‘and here’s a close up of the horse…’ I was up on the New Forest this weekend! I didn’t get a chance to take many photos, but the few that I took came out well. William the Conqueror planted the original seeds of the New Forest, and now it’s just a lot of scrubby heath land with lots of wild…

Thinking back, there were a couple of bullet point blog posts early last year, but I don’t think I’ve fallen back on that particular crutch since. But I’m doing it now: I’m invoking the Too Busy To Blog Properly clause of the Web Logger’s Constitution. This weekend I left my bedroom. Actually, I’m scheduled to leave my bedroom next weekend too, so you might get two blog posts like this. My most heart-felt, belaboured but ultimately spurious apologies in advance…

Unfortunately the measurements are…

You don’t have to listen to it, I just thought it was apt, as I’m going down to the coast for the weekend. To Southampton! It’s only about 60 miles away, but this being England, that’s a considerable distance. We’re not like the Americans where a 6 hour journey is ‘just down the road’. 6 hours is the length of England… I’m heading there for…
