Autumn Arrives


Just a quick one, autumn is here and it’s pouring down with rain of course! Time to chill out and enjoy the fact that my garden in getting a good watering. 😉

Swimming Meets Cosplay


I went to take some photos of my brother in law doing one of his ‘Five Great British Swims’ in the Royal Victoria docks in London. When we arrived we were surprised to find the train station not filled with swimmers as expected, but instead filled with Mario, Luigi, Harry […]
