Autumn in Aberdeenshire

Last week we had a mini roadtrip to to Scotland to see Gavin's family. (By which I mean: we drove to and from Aberdeenshire with a few flyby stops on the way, but calling it a roadtrip makes driving over 800 miles sound much more fun. It was fun! I don't think either of us are long distance driving pros, but we have a system that works pretty well for us. That is: we stop and swap regularly, and we've both decided that the passenger's job is to both carry the conversation and to be basically the equivalent of a video game HUD. HUDs don't judge you. They are helpful and informative. I recommend this attitude very much.)

Yorkshire Sculpture Park

Last week we took a day trip to the Yorkshire Sculpture Park. There's a pretty big installation by Not Vital at the moment, which features a lot of awesome reflective things that are just asking for weird and wonderful mirror selfies. The mirror selfie is a big favourite of mine (whether or not Mr Vital intended his work to be used this way...)

Meet My Rats

(Firstly, just to address the elephant in the room: yes, it has indeed been nearly two years since my last blog post here, goodness me. I've given the blog a little refresh and I'm back. Hope you like it!)

I'd like to introduce you to the two rats that now live with me....
