I've start posting photo diary entries on my profile @ blip foto, in an attempt to post one photo every day this year. I like blogger, but blipfoto is setup far better for photo diaries, and has a really nice community. So things might get a little quieter around here.

Photo Diary : Perfecting the Fedora Fling™

Step 1: First choose a hat. I've gone for the straw fedora because it makes me look proper tourist. Once you've chosen your target take some time to calculate distances, throwing angles, wind resistance and potential for damage to the villa owner's property. Loose fitting clothing is also suggested - as you can see i've gone for the Robot/PJ combo.

Step 2: Adopt the throwing stance and if possible pull a ridiculous horse face. Empty your mind and try to forget that you've already been explicitly told by your mum not to throw hats at the villa owner's creepy possessions.

Step 3: Success! You have hit your target. Celebrate by necking a glass of €3 Cava and run around the room making Zoidberg noises.

Photo Diary : Date Set, Invites Sent

After 8 years of being engaged we've set a date for the wedding. On October 8th 2011 we'll have an intimate (i.e. small) gathering and tie the knot. And I couldn't be happier.

Photo Diary : Geocaching around Blackbrook Reservoir

Geocaching we found another awesome site a few miles away from our house - Blackbrook Reservoir. The reservoir was constructed in 1976 to feed the local Charnwood Forest Canal. It's now a Site of Special Interest as fossils discovered there were the first to be identified as 'macroscopic remains of Precambrian life', what ever that means (GC10GBA).
