Today's adventures involved walking along damp kinda muddy sand, walking in the sea, and sticking my feet in a running river.

Understandably my pair of old tatty sandals is now hanging up in the sun to dry.

UKpol, covid, government policy snark 

So the new signs and gently vague slogan/instructions neatly fit a lot of haiku. Do with this information what you will.

The Midnight Gospel 

So I just finished watching The Midnight Gospel on netflix, which seems to be partially surreal animation from Pendleton Ward and the episodes are heavily based on interviews from a podcast done by Duncan Trussell and its just ... very good and fascinating but alternatively heavy and surreal and deep and beautiful.

Just 8 episodes and all about meditation, magic, death, and life with Clancy acting as our example. Just look at this sorta spoiler free screenshot for example

Food mention 

So I've been a bit quiet because the whole Situation(tm) is kinda big and hardcore, although I am keeping afloat and keeping in touch with humans.

Anyway here's a weird piece of Chocolate Egg Day noms that I had. Is it a weird alien insect creature? Or a Monkey?

oh, and here's a picture for clarity, description should cover everything

I also had an accidentally long walk in the local waterpark with my girlfriend, there was gentle desolation. Also it was boggy underfoot

Today I sort of managed to sort of bodge the start of nalbinding chain stitch. I remain convinced it's not *that* complex but that it's hard to video and show all the angles

So today the weather was fabulously misty and I indulged in trying to frame artful shots while not being very camera artful. This is also partially because one of my partners is travelling and wanted pics of my days :)

Where I usually have lunch is frequented by magpies, normally one keeps watch from the roofline while the over scavenges and pootles around in the grass, today however they both sat on the roof peering then took off for other spots. But I did get a pic :)

Wandering back into the office earlier netted me some glorious winter sunshine and I managed to get a whole tree shadow thing going on

In a room with people printing along to Bob Ross with peeps. I cannot art. Such giggling.

I got to do a coastal walk on the west of Wales the other day, just look at this beautiful amount of colours in the sky and sea!

The pretty place where I live had suprise snow over the weekend, like I was invited to a roleplaying game and when it wrapped we opened the front door to fresh snow and heavy fall.

Everything was still, quiet, empty, and soft. Suddenly a magical other flipside city appeared.

Also a car with a taped together boot struggled past me up the hill like it was escaping from an encounter with monsters.

Satisfyingly weird

So today between chugging mugs of lemsip I got back to practicing , because it feels like a relaxing, creative, useful skill that will outlast the collapse of modern society (unlike me who will kark it pretty sharpish).

Managed to remember/relearn how to knit on, knit, purl, cast off, increase/decrease, and worked out why I kept gaining random stitches!

Sort of victory, although I hear crotchet doesn't explode if you drop it and nalbinding looks cool so I may divert my efforts

Got a nice picture of a large tree I can see from where I commonly have lunch, it's doing a whole autumnal thing, also there were magpies engaged in a territory fight around it earlier.
