We had porridge for breakfast

We started the day with porridge. Big flakes of oats in a small dish – with syrup. When I was a kid my mum would serve up a large plate of smooth porridge such that the edges would cool down quickly and form a sort of skin – and we added far more syrup than would be advisable these days.

Just before the new series of Beck begins, this firework was captured out the window.

Out the window

Like in the sixties film Blow-Up, if you look carefully you can see something that wasn’t apparent when the picture was taken. (Don’t get excited – it’s not very exciting!)

A violent night sky

I’m not sure if this an accurate representation of the striking night sky, but it’s the best I could do. And no, there was no rain or storm.
