Slytherin !

A cold but sunny day for my walk to the city. Visited some places I knew, but hadn’t been to for a while.

This is new, I’m not a fan of pet shops.

I am a fan of electricity sub stations though.

Used to be called Zanzibar, doubled up as a roller skating rink on Sunday mornings, went there with my niece and nephew a few times. I would love to go roller skating again, but there’s not a rink nearby .

A Sunny Day (at last)

It was lovely and sunny today, about time. Having just had a haircut ! really felt the cold but the sunshine lifted my spirits. Most of the photographs were on a film camera today, I couldn’t resist this shot though while en route to the supermarket.

Boxing Day Walk #1

It was a lovely bright day, a little bit cold, ideal walking weather. So off I set to town with my Olympus E620. According to my MSN health & fitness phone app I walked just over five and a half miles.

Beer & Curry

Last night I had a Beer & Curry evening with the lads. I’m slowly recovering !!!  According to the weather report it was supposed to have been cool but dry, it was cool but wet, I’m sure a sprig of seaweed and a pine cone would probably be a more reliable method of weather forecasting. Tried out a new pub “The Blue Boar” named after an old inn (now demolished) where King Richard 111 spent his last night in Leicester before riding to his doom at Bosworth. A real beer drinkers pub and they also brew their own beer which was excellent. Moved on to a pub closer to the restaurant, and a friends band were playing there, all in all a good night out.
