I've just got back from my holiday to Edinburgh. Which I enjoyed. It's just a pity it's a long way away. It's a nice city, small enough to walk around, pretty and friendly people. And a castle.

I have been on holiday! It's partly been a holiday from work and partly an actual going away holiday. I went to London.

Another weekend, another trip out, this time to Manor Farm, which was the farm they filmed Wartime Farm at. It had a whole load of animals, including some noisy sheep and two ugly turkeys displaying at one of the females, who didn't pay either of the males any attention at all. I got to stroke...
