Holy Brook

Been out today with LL exploring the ancient Holy Brook river that runs all the way to the site of Reading Abbey. Autumn colours were beautiful as well.

Plastic Bricks

Finally got to visit Legoland in Windsor today after all these years. In fact the last time I stood in the grounds it was something completely different: Windsor Safari Park. Showing my age aren't  I LOL?

Considering how much I loved Lego as a child and to an extent still do, you might well ask why on God's green Earth it has taken me so long? To be honest I don't really know the answer. Anyway enough of that, here is a (brief) pictorial tour:

Brading Roman Villa, Isle of Wight. Well worth a visit (and not too expensive either). Visit their page.

From Australia's Perth Mint. Think it speaks for itself, don't you agree?

Lift Off

I think someone nearby has had some fun modifying their car, possibly inspired by a repeat episode of Top Gear on TV channel Dave...

Could have been worse I guess. They might have seen the road version of Red Dwarf's Starbug from a few years ago. Glad to see in the new series currently airing, Starbug is back to it's former glory. And the series (XI) isn't too bad either.

Dirty Old Man?

Today (Monday) saw me back at the doctor's surgery for more blood pressure tests.

The nurse told me my BP hasn't shifted much since taking the higher level dose. She insisted (again) that I saw the duty GP straight away. While he's increased again my Meds, he did in all seriousness suggest my high blood pressure might be because it was a female nurse performing the test. Gigedy.

Not sure quite what the deal is with regards my Fig. All year it hasn't done a great deal of anything and now it is Autumn it seems to be forming fruit. What's going on LOL?
