When I walked through Ruskin Park on my way to work this morning the ducks were sleeping by the side of the pond. Maybe they’d forgot to put their clocks forward yesterday?

I found this guy in a charity shop a few weeks ago. He appears to have functions that I’m as yet unable to fathom as he came without an instruction manual but sometimes he does a really cute dance.

I saw this a while ago in the new Sheffield market. The box is much better than the robot though.

I love Padley Gorge. It’s one of my favourite places to go walking. And you also get to go to Grindleford Cafe for giant veggie breakfasts, pints of tea and the angry signs.

Transfixed by Dexys

I’m currently transfixed by Don’t Stand Me Down by Dexys Midnight Runners which I bought today thanks to a recommendation from Markie.

I should probably listen to my other Dexys records more.

When I arrived at work this morning I was given some gifts that my colleagues in India have sent over for me. It is such a lovely thing for them to do for me.
