Back from holiday.

Well, a week in the rain and cold of Northumbria, in a castle by the sea has been well worth it. For the firsat tiem in age I had a few days off from work and I do ineed feel refreshed. As this is my personal blog and as there is currently only one occasional reader (Hi Tracy!) this is still an exercise in madness, in reality a method of filling up a few stray minutes in the day.

This week I read a couple of great books- a gumshoe/ crime novel by Ross McDonald (superb and under rated American writer) and a biog of Mark Twain. Spent time at the castles of Alnwick and Bamburgh, the latter literally on the beach and the former on a quite staggering size and scale . The castle is still lived in and it was pretty interesting to catch a glimpse of a life so far removed from my own. Know when you drive past a house with a lighted window at dusk and you can see in? This was like that only more so and with Canalettos and a Titian on the wall.

Anyways. Back to work .I have no idea how people find these blogs just now but my guys are working on our business blog which will be an altogether different animal of course...
