Well it has been another long gap since the last post. Christmas has come and gone, and New Year has been appropriately celebrated. Adventures have been a bit think on the ground lately, and can only be sparsely illustrated due to the lack of digital photography.
This is Moss at Christmas time...
And here is a photo (from Matt's mobile phone) of the crowd about set out in celebration of New Year.
So in fact both of these photos were taken in December 2006, rather than January 2007. I seem to have been very busy, driving all over the place for work, but my mind has gone completely blank as far as 'exciting events' goes.
