Well, I ‘collect’ CDs. This is a close-up of some of my Beatles albums (well, all of them to be honest, I don’t have that many).

I don’t know whether this is interesting but time is short today!

Isle of Wight, a set on Flickr.

Some of my recent Project 365 photos from the Isle of Wight. Apologies for not uploading these before but… well, I couldn’t. The 3G connection was flaky at best! Hope you enjoy these anyway 🙂

I thought there would be a fairly low chance of anyone else taking a photo of a beacon! Back in the old days, there weren’t many options for sending long-distance messages. Beacons were one innovative example.

This beacon is in Castle Park, Colchester. And as far as I know it’s never been used for the purposes of sending messages!

I think if anything this photo is in danger of overemphasizing the dark tones! (Hence the Spinal Tap reference…) This is a little jewelerry hanger my wife has which she got recently, I think it’s pretty.

This is a path which is virtually covered over by trees. It looks a bit like a tunnel from certain places!

Last week at work

This week is my last week at work before going to college next year (and by ‘next year’ I really mean, in a few weeks.) Scary!

Anyway. A quick update on what we’ve been doing the past few days: on Friday, due to there being no youth club, we didn’t really do very much. Stayed home and watched ‘The Ghost’, which was a really good film. I didn’t really like the end, but it was quite thought-provoking and very clever.

On Saturday we didn’t do a huge amount – just bits of shopping and so on. Took advantages of the beautiful weather and did some work in the garden, which was rather nice! Then in the evening we watched The Blues Brothers, which I just fancied watching … don’t know why, I just felt like it!

We went to church on Sunday morning, and then came back home for lunch. In the afternoon I popped out to meet with Aella about the talk I’m doing at church next Sunday morning (my first “all age” talk… eek!) and then came back home for some tea. We watched Top Gear and… well, that’s pretty much it to be honest. Not a very exciting weekend, but a nice relaxing one after having had a fair bit to do recently!

Last night, Jen came round for dinner as AJ is away, so it was really nice to see her for a while 🙂

In other news, my New Word Alive 2011 CD has arrived. I’ve had fun reliving some of the musical moments of the week, particularly ‘Jesus I My Cross have Taken’, and a couple of others which I’d forgotten about. Good stuff.

Well, this is a relatively low horizon, it’s below 50% which I think counts (just) 😉

I think it’s a nice scene anyway and the picture came out well.

This is the ‘front’ of Fordham Church (Essex). I’m not exactly sure what you would call the ‘front’ of a church from the outside, it doesn’t really have a natural front. However I think this is quite an attractive view of the church, hence why I’ve chosen it.

Well this is a picture of the yellow pages (appropriately enough) – aka, what people used to use before the internet 🙂
