As it was a bank holiday last weekend, I drove out to Oxford. As well as going punting (well, I was sort of a tourist), I went out to see the white horse at Uffington. It’s made from chalk, and spans the side of a hill, and was originally constructed “2 or 3” thousand yearsContinue reading “Out into the country”
RRRR. Barclays just charged me a £30 penalty, and I’ve incurred a £50 fine for not paying my congestion charge (I thought you could pay it up to 24 hours afterwards, but it’s only till midnight). And it’s raining. And I’m ill. Woe is me, woe is me, etc., fade music, curtain.

Scalby churchyard.Continue reading “All years leaving”
