low tide


This evening I cycled home from work in the sea mist, and then made my way along the sand and paddled in the sea while the sun went down.

Days like this make me feel very happy that I live and work by the coast.

Das ist gut!


I spent my August bank holiday in Berlin this year. A lovely city to visit.

My favourite day was Sunday when Yumi & I went drawing in the Museum für Naturkunde, and then we went to the Flohmarkt am Mauerpark and watched the Bearpit karaoke. It made me smile in a big way.

further adventures in stained glass


I've now finished my stained glass evening class. For the last few lessons I dedicated my time to making smaller pieces using copper foil and the soldering iron. I find this method far simpler, and less worrying, than using the lead and it was nice to make some bright and colourful little pieces using the leftover scraps of glass.

I'm currently trying to decide whether to hang these birds and leaves in a row across my window, or to create more of a hanging mobile...maybe the window option.
