Returning Devices

Tuesday evening, returning test & dev devices during my last working week. Bye bye to a locked down LHR16.

Checking out the rabbit damage

Yogi and Ewok

That's damage caused by the rabbits. Not damage to rabbits. That would be a very different thing.

Field boundaries

Field Poppy

It's all at the edges.

Steps down the garden, not finished, but getting there.

Running sunsets

A bonus from learning to run (couch to 5k, slowly) is the sunsets.

H interviewing Ewok for his lockdown experiences. Or, getting some attention with an ice lolly bribe.

Tidy, Dry and Light

Shed. Tidy.

After fixing the roof, the shed had a spring clean. Lighting added thanks to a solar panel on the (new!) roof and an old car battery. The panel also covered a hole where I'd missed the beam with a roofing nail!

The Beach

Dreaming of the beach

Reading Alex Garland. Dreaming of the beach.

Horsebox Coffee

Horsebox Coffee

Coffee by post. First delivery from Horsebox. Quiet lovely, but I need to tweak the grinder and shot weight I think.
