Wiblog - Paul's Wibblings

23/02/21

25 years ago today is the date Beth and I have deemed that we started going out. I say that as it's complicated. We met online, on the CIX BBS in the landrover conference, and so in 1996 we were early to discover the thing that people online have continued to find since: that long distance relationships are tricky. Beth lived in Ipswich, I lived 130 miles away in Yateley on the other side of London.  read more ...

I can find no way of saying "I don't use Messenger" and people assume you do. So they message you anyway. Sometimes about stuff that matters, and that's a problem.  read more ...

Rydal Cave

Classic example of the best camera is the one that's with you. I really needed a better camera for this shot but at least my phone camera app will let me over and under expose so I was able to push the EV so I could see inside the cave a little while deliberately blowing out the entrance.

Oldham Christmas 2013

So as is (semi-) traditional my sibs and I gathered at my parents house yesterday with husbands, wives, children and dogs. Dad took a photo with his little compact which he's just emailed to me so here it is. I am still the tallest but Jamie is now over 6' and is only 16 so I may lose the crown shortly.

Today I finally got around to revealing the Milton Photo Archive to the world, something I spent a lot of time working on the last time Beth was away researching walks for WalkLakes.  read more ...

We've just got back from three weeks in Scotland in Florence. The first week we drove up via Braemar to Ullapool for the book festival. ...  read more ...

So, I've been a little distracted for the last ten days of so by the aftermath of the dog incident. The current state of the nation is that Jack and I are off to the vet today ...  read more ...
