The day job has been infringing over the Christmas and New Year period but now I am off for three days and sun has been shining on a cold and frosty Patouland.
Sadly Sue is now back to work but on the plus side it was a day for some father and son bonding.
First up was my daily customary drubbing at scalextric. I modified the track this morning, taking out some nasty bends and hopefully evening up the competition but it was not to be. The boy wonder seems to have the knack and his Ferrari 430 was sticking to the track better than my much better looking Aston Martin DB9. I pushed hard but came unstuck (literally) when I tried to get in front. I will win, I may have to start cheating.
After Scalextric it was Lego with much building to be done followed by lunch. Sausages, naturally.
Then this afternoon we ventured out together with the mad labs for some fresh air and I was able to take a few snaps with MY new camera. Ha ha! She went to work and relinquished her iron grip on the mighty Canon! It was all mine, zoom lens attached we stepped out wrapped up to the eyeballs.
It's a start folks and I hope to improve as I find out what all the pretty buttons and knobs are for.
As a matter of interest for a friend of mine north of Hadrians Wall I am currently cradling a crystal glass of Glenlivet. A Speyside malt. Rather delicious. Can the distillery be seen from Coire HQ?
