    Tea has been Scotch broth with multiseed bread

    Accompanied by The Repair Shop


      {emotionless greeting}

      Three Word Slogan


        No telly tonight other than The Repair Shop as I instead finished reading Dion Fortune's novel Moon Magic, being the sequel to The Sea Priestess which I read last week. Sadly, she died before she completed this one; but another member of her magical order was able to channel the final three chapters, so she completed it after her death

              Grey day again out there, but mild enough at 13°C, rising to 16° this afternoon. The barometers are very slightly down at 1013/1021mB


                Morning all

                Cloudy with intermittent sunshine. Currently 14 degrees with a high of 16 expected.

                HWMBO and I are on a train from Waterloo to Portsmouth & Southsea in order to catch our boat to the med this afternoon.

                      And before that I started experimenting with writing OpenGL shaders for use in SpriteKit.
