All the satisfaction of picking a scab, without the bleeding

good music for stripping to:

the Thames

photos taken along, by, on, over - but not in - the Thames

This is one of my routes between home and work.

i've been in a funny old mood lately.
or, more accurately, a funny old series of funny old moods.

and I've been feeling rather ambivalent about blogging.

I did wonder if maybe I would stop blogging - whether it was a phase i've gone through and will leave behind me. But i think thats unlikely. I don't think I want to stop blogging.
and, reading through all your comments again, how could I?

But I foresee a bit of a blogging break.
or maybe a change in blog-habits.

for a while....

Apart from the ambivalence and funny old-ness, there are a myriad other things I should be getting on with in the three weeks I have (oops! 3 weeks when i wrote this draft, less than now...) before my holiday starts

(starts with a return trip to the US followed by another family visit to family in Jersey, Channel Islands).

A myriad other things like:
*continuing re-organisation of my study (well underway already) (you should see how tidy my desk is!) (and i can get things in and out of my filing cabinet. And Everything!)

*preparation for teaching of existing/revised and new courses from September

*wallpaper-stripping in dining room

*some sewing/textile projects needing to be finished

*balancing bank accounts (yeah right! balance would be SUCH a good thing)

oh, and really need to mow the lawn...

and clip the guinea-pig's claws...

So I am herewith serving notice that there may not be quite the usual service here for a while - I think I will just post photos for a while, without any/much verbiage - and I may not appear much or at all in your comments boxes, though I will try to pop in from time to time just to keep in touch a bit.

For a while .....
