Corrosive Shame
Therapy for Life
Ho hum, maybe staying up late messing with Photoshop does not lead to good sleep.

Anyway - fantastic weekend including a little walk, fine company, some booze, curry tonight with different fine company and recovery from the M6 being not too bad on a Sunday afternoon.

Car has been returned from pax_draconis - and seems to be in good condition - though is strangely missing the aerial - which seems to have restricted its reception of Radio 4.

Anyway - first (very rough and ready) cut of the photos of the weekend linked here, and a few of my favourites behind the cut.

Current Mood: sleepy sleepy

Nice pics, though the crow on the bottom one does shatter the illusion of a fek off big mountain. Although I appreciate that the pic is taken near the peak...

Yeah - I know what you mean. There's an assumption of grandeur and scale.

Raven not crow, and they coexist with buzzards hence fairly high up. And that photo isn't near the summit I don't think. It was (for England) a fek off big mountain (2600ft) though we didn't start at the bottom.

What magic meant you starter half way up? ;-)

I really like The slatey Ruin, the blue slate, dark wood and red background make it quite striking. Love the lone lintel, my congratulations to your set dresser:)

Did it ever have an aerial? I'd never noticed one, so assumed it came without one.

If it's been kifed, I'll get a replacement.

Front-centre of the roof - where there's now an empty socket. Looks like it's been actively removed (unscrewed). Best way to replace is to talk to a Renault dealership or have you a better idea?

Wasp-tail aerial, same as the Rover. There's two possibilities:

1) I unscrewed it to take the car through a car-wash - but I usually use jet washes over car washes, and don't remember doing so.

2) It's been kifed.

I'll make some enquiries - hopefully have you a replacement by Friday.

This does explain why I could never get decent reception on the radio, though. Did you find my hidden present?

Not yet - I only moved it from the kerb to the drive :-)

Aah, give it time to mature, like good Camembert.

The door pockets, BTW, are exactly as you left them - I didn't know what was and wasn't rubbish so left as is.

Those pictures are excellent :)

Rar! I love the first one the most. Very dramatic. Will have a look at the others later.

Believe it or not, I did actually manage to appreciate the beauty of the place at the time, despite my lower body beng wracked with pain... ;)

Your pictures capture it [the beautty] bloody well, too.
