View picture 2 of the Beeb's coverage of the Birmingham tornado. Make sure you read the caption

We are alright. To tell the truth I didn't even take the photo; Bree's mum did. All I knew at the time was that there was a lot of rain.

Shed Razing and Shed Raising

Last week's big project: taking down the rotten wooden shed, and erecting a new aluminium one. It was a big project, but we got by with a little help from our friends. Tuesday we destroyed the old shed, with help from Dave and Will. It was rotten enough we could kick down the walls. Hulk smash! This was the fun bit. On Wednesday Dave helped us erect the roof of the new shed. This was the unfun bit. A thousand screws, metal parts that didn't line up, and crazy instructions. On Thursday Rocio showed up with her magic electric screwdriver, and progress accelerated. The shed is up, though doors need to be attached. Anyway, it provided a handy box to store all the junk from the old shed, clearing the patio for yesterday's BBQ in honour of Bree's birthday. Which was a most excellent evening!

Wow, The New House!

Originally uploaded by Noel Welsh.
This photo is one of 25 of the new house. Just click on it to see the rest. This is a special bonus set of photos as it has cats in it as well!!

We Won!

Incredibly enough we won our football game 2-0. First win of the season!


I don't know anyone injured in the London bombings. Concerned parents, be concerned no more!

Looked at my cycle speedometer recently and see I have set a new (personal) land speed record of 52kmh! That's faster than the speed limit (30mph = 48kph)!

Broadband Cometh

This post comes from home, via the new wireless router that has just arrived, to complement our 2Mbps ADSL connection that was activated last week. Yay!

Well there isn't much more to say. I'm about to go to University to play in our weekly football match. No doubt we'll be thrashed, as usual. The kittens are rough-housing, as usual. The write up of my algorithm is going ok. I hoped to get it finished before my supervision today, but that won't happen. It is hard to get work done when one is being used as a climbing frame. And yeah, the broadband, that might have been a distraction.
