an eye for the mundane

Monthly Archives: August 2008


right, i’m going to attempt to give you a bit of a diary of our last fortnight in wales over the next few days.  we’ll see how it goes.

this is the severn bridge marking the gateway to wales.  it’s a toll – cash only.  note the rain

no sooner had we gone across the welsh border and we knew this was going to be a  wet holiday.  it was also at this point i realised that my photos weren’t going to reveal the extent of the rain, so you’ll mostly just have to take my word for it.

here is a bin with an abandoned brolly.  possibly dumped there by someone leaving the country.

various people braved the elements to walk their soggy dogs.



i’ll write much more about our disappointing holiday house called Bramble Hall .  Needless to say this is not a particularly accurate description: “A lovely, detached house, wonderfully situated on the owner’s working
agricultural farm, in the fabulous, medieval town of Pembroke.”
  But more about that later !

for now here is a container thing which i guess must be used to sell christmas trees in season
