The can was a recent one and hadn't had chance to be opened..

...I guess it just wanted to be empty!

Has Mrs spider banished you to the garage then?

Another dream for the tin labelled 'Unknown Stuff'. That tin is becoming full: I need a larger one.

Last night I dreamt that I woke up to a beautiful sunny morning. Warm sunlight glistening on the shiny white rocket with bright red lettering stood on the launchpad outside of the bedroom window.

I got my camera out only to find that it wasn't working. Whilst fiddling with it to work out why the lens wouldn't focus and the shutter wouldn't fire, it did occur to me that I should be asking Mrs LTL why we live so close to a rocket station. Afterall, they are noisy places are they not?

The frustration with the incalcitrant camera was compounded when, having got it to work, I looked up to find the sun had disappeared and the rocket was soaked with rain. Nobody wants a photograph of a wet rocket.

Several hours later and in the land of the wide awake I am still frustrated with the camera.

The result of an hour sitting in the garden and looking for birds was two wood pigeons, a blackbird, a robin and a probable house sparrow. At least it was done yesterday in dry weather. Sit outside for an hour today and you'd dissolve.

A couple of positives, though. The robin sang quietly but beautifully for me. And I now know what's spreading earth onto the path outside the back door - it's the blackbird .

I drank for the first time in 25 days yesterday. Well done to anyone else doing Dry January!

Goodness, you must have been seriously dehydrated. January's not out yet though!

Discovered a mobile chippie visits the village on Saturday nights so tonight a fish supper with mushy peas! I couldn’t wait for it to come down my road so found it with a tracker - great idea.

Pointless!

Tested a strip of heavenknowshowold film and developer yesterday..

The developing fluid has now been disposed of as it wasn't working, and the strip of totally blank film is in the bin.

New developing fluids orderd and re-useable film cartridges NOT filled, I still don't know if the film is OK.

So, sorrows drowned last night with a bottle or two of Saltaire Brewery's finest.

Are you sure you didn't develop the film in Saltaire's finest and drink the developer...?

Yup, If I'd tried developing in the beer I'd have got something..

...the images might have been out of focus but that's beer for you!

That's the stuff he needed in his developing tank - refreshes the parts other beers cannot reach.

Still, there's always coffee, a bit too early for beer..

You're welcome to some southern mud... instead of the snow, not the coffee... unless you want to try Baldrick Blend.
