half term etc

we went away for half term, down to dorset with the mintys, faulkners and hydes [old friends from our time in exile down south] and stopped off overnight at steve and moira's in bristol on the way there. apart from brief bumping into's at greenbelt, we've not really seen the broadways since we moved up here to leeds, so it was great to catch up and drink and eat great food [spicy chicken, soda bread, apple meringue] and wander round bristol with them.

here is a picture of steve doing the washing up.

steve and moira have a really inspiring home - art everywhere, a gallery space in the basement - and big things are happening in their little garden. [you can see some of what they're up to, horticulturally-speaking, in this handy video...]

dorset was lovely - good conversation, guinness cake, beer, the traumatising of the local crayfish population, sunshine, beaches, only one day when it absolutely tipped down, man u losing the champions league final [sorry minty]...

and so now it's back to work.

it was REALLY lovely to see you (and we've planted the raspberry plants, thank you)
