After a pretty exhausting week (first full-time work since last November!) I slept extremely late today. More searching for a now almost certainly lost cat leads me to Whitecross Village. I've always been vaguely amused and a bit annoyed at this idea of 'urban villages' within what is already a small town. Anyway, I discovered two Indian Restaurants, a post office, a chinese take away, a laundrette and a reasonably sized supermarket among other useful amenities, within an approximate 6 minute walk from home. Don't get me wrong, I sort of vaguely knew it was there, but not exactly the extent or proximity of it. Maybe having 24hr Tesco and town centre a couple of minutes in the other direction has blinded me to my surroundings. Didn't find the cat however.
I've had a home on the web for more years than I care to remember, and a few kind souls persuade me it's worth persisting with keeping it updated. This current incarnation of the site is centred around the blog posts which began back in 1999 as 'the daylog' and continued through my travels and tribulations during the following years.
I don't get out and about nearly as much these days, but I do try to record significant events and trips for posterity. You may also have arrived here by following the trail to my former music blog Songs Heard On Fast Trains. That content is preserved here too.
