Photo dated 21 February, Bold Street, Liverpool. My dad getting his feet cleaned by fish.

Photo of pancake breakfast dated 23 February in the most excellent Jabberwocky Cafe, Douglas, Isle of Man. This place is right in the town centre close to the ferry terminal and I highly recommend it.

Becka then cleared off to China on Wednesday 2 March for a month.

I saw Richard Stallman give his stump speech in Preston the following day and do everything he can to keep raising money for the Free Software Foundation.

I have worked too long on some data visualizations I’m no good at doing, and am now wasting the weekend.

It’s grey outside. I tried to burn all the hedge hackings that have been strewn around the garden for the last month and failed. I am now experiencing a case of full-blown February blues.
