These are actually from last week as it’s a bit dreich today. I am planning to catch up on things — many sights to show you from the last few months — but it’s been a bit hectic yet this month. But real summer soon (okay, maybe not the weather — I’m okay with dreich)….
Home Town Jaunt
Made a brief trip to the home town with my brother to see our other brother and my dad and pick up some things. Weird how much the town has changed yet our street so little. My older brother lives in my grandparents’ house, which we lived in when I was born, then moved into…
Empty Met & Heavenly Bodies
Thanks to Bertie, we headed down to hit the Met before hours to enjoy the last day of the Heavenly Bodies exhibit, then ran up to the Cloisters to see the other location. Oddly enough the medieval setting worked well with the fashion inspired by the church. And there was even a good bit of…
Tay River Cruise
We had a great day out on Saturday; being paranoid, I took the old phone so fewer pictures and none of the great sightings of dolphins right up close to the boat! Or the seal who popped up and gave us a look like we were disturbing her day — and loads of jellyfish which Charlotte…
Dundee Botanic Gardens
The Dundee Botanic Gardens: delights aplenty, a penguin and more. Many pix on the ‘book if you trawl there.
A Wander Around Broughty Ferry
As we’re off on another adventure today, I better get some pictures up from the last family outing. A warm if grey day kept everyone away from the shore, so we mostly had it to ourselves which was delightful. More pix on the ‘book if you’re there.
Lots to catch up on — pictures, posts, reviews — but in the mean time, it’s family day. Half off sale is still on at Smashwords and hoping for some reviews of HBW5 soon! More wanderings tomorrow —
At the McManus
The Beano takes over museum, but there’s also a portraits show on and of course old favourites — possibly obsessing a little too much about Duncan‘s Riders, but there it is.
A Gardener’s Grave
Wandering in the Howff today to loosen up my brain a little after some intense work on my latest essay (Celtic themes in Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell). Just sent off the essay, so I though I would share some of the fruits of my wander. I’m always discovering things I hadn’t noticed before. What a…
Smiles of a Summer Night (and Day)
I am back in Dundee so life has improved immensely. Yes, still busy (week two of a three-week online intensive, one review written and sent, a couple of deadlines looming) but I have played with the Executive Princess, slept soundly, finished a book I’ve been reading in bits, and started watching the final series of Bron/Broen/The…
