seeing new year in

in my thanks to you the blog reader, i didn’t thank jane my wife for allowing me the endless hours i’ve put in to funkypancake over the last [insert number here] of months.
jane’s patience with me isn’t limitless of course and i went too far on new year’s eve by taking photos as we rolled over in to the new year.

cousins

here are cousin thomas and his cousin kezia (not to be confused with his imaginary friend ‘kezia’) out walking in Burnham Beeches. it’s a great place, so you must go.

double lock

this isn’t really a padlock, but i’ve put it in the category anyway. it is a double fence lock, openable in either direction from either side. good stuff.
