queuing to watch telly

here’s a teeny bit of the queue of people waiting to get a ticket to watch Live8 on the telly in Hyde Park.


well, the hassocks are flying in fast and furious. i’ve already got 40-odd lined up for you and i know of at least 3 more rich seams.
to pace myself i’ll try and give you one per week.

free wireless hotspot

it was hot this evening so i walked back from a work event in Westminster to Paddington Station. Unfortunately it took ages to cross Hyde Park as they’ve built a concert venue all over it.
today loads of great bands had been playing as part of the Wireless Festival. I went by around 9pm and Keene were about to play. i’m not too keen on them (clever ey?) but i do love the Secret Machines who were also playing. i would also liked to have seen Supergrass and the Bunnymen.
but this was all academic as i didn’t go in. But i did walk past this spot on the perimeter where people were sitting watching the big screens on the side of the stage !

mad weather

what IS going on with the british weather ? quite bonkers at the moment. even by our standards.

through the kaleidoscope

kezia has a little kaleidoscope type thing which can simulate the effect of halucinogenic drugs in a child friendly way.
i held it against my camera lense and came up with thes quick shots.

sure you could probably do something fancier digitally, but i liked the randomness and speedyness of the process.

esther’s last easter egg

esther made her easter eggs last so long that her last big egg has gone out of date. she decided not to eat it.
but i decided we couldn’t throw it away and i ate it instead.
it was this blog post that made me do it !


strange dog and another dog sign site

here is a strange dog. it’s legs don’t look right to me. but then i know little about much.
on a related note, i got an email from Sergei, the chap that runs this website. it’s another collection of dog signs and there’s surprising little overlap between our two sites !

sumo swings

kids play grounds are marvellous. this one even has a swing for sumo wrestlers.

kezia said to jane “can i have a go on the pants swing”. great minds think alike.
i obviously have the same outlook as a three year old.
