Revenge of the lego people

May 10, 2012

Still raining. The cooking of summer fruits is slow to have an effect. Today I made a lentil curry and added gooseberries. No one identified the rogue ingredient until after they’d eaten it – very satisfying.

The sky was looking a bit boringly monochrome today so here’s a photo of it reflected at the edge of a newly formed pond which makes the local  “access for all” cycle and footpath all but impassable. I hadn’t really thought about the term “access for all” much; I presumed it meant wheel chairs and the like, but thinking about it I guess it does encompass boats – or rafts.  Interesting.

The seal was in the river again at the bottom of the weir, over which the water is raging furiously, catching fish. He/she is caught on camera here. I know  it’s hard to see, but you’ll just have to believe that the smudge is a seal’s head with a fish. It must be a good place to fish because the seal’s been there every day for weeks.

Arlo has a headache. Still. It’s been going on for a few days now, but I think we’ve discovered the reason – it’s the lego people making their objections felt. The beloved suggested this to him, but the suggestion was dismissed. “They’re toys” he said. Odd. He’s seen Toy Story.
