@dick_turpin oh and yes this is also the Handmade Scotch Egg Company HQ :P

So tomorrow I am helping the lovely people at The Nest, Ledbury with the setup for their annual fun day on Sat where there will be lots of lovely food, drink, archery, random odd animals, orchards and space to mess around with, live music and just a relaxing afternoon :) Free entry and not even a parking charge in sight. @dick_turpin in an attempt to shamelessly get it in the Friday roundup :) Disclaimer : the people who run the nest are friends of mine and they are lovely :) x

2/2
(there may also be meerkats, birds of prey, chickens (not at the same time) doggos, heavy horses , feral morris dancers (there is no other kind) , live music and other silliness.

Also me in a goth hi-vis jacket calmly helping out with everything :)

Hell is having to pick up a part built ikea build when everything is open and it is half assembled... but did they do it correctly?

Happy belated birthday @MunkyBone I hope the moose stay out of your garden and you go on many more fancy holidays! :)

So back home after a fantastic Upton Blues Festival. We ran a fantastic bar and radio station and I am going into work tomorrow for some peace and quiet.

ah the unmistakable sound of a hawk moth smashing into the lampshade.

I am less bothered about the final now (although I think there is a decent chance England will win it) beating Australia is a always the goal :) Also they will go on to play India so either they lose again or I get to tease some our team at work in India so can't lose :)

btw there is just the little matter of AUSTRALIA GETTING UTTERLY SPANKED IN THE CRICKET TODAY BY ENGLAND WHO HAVE GONE ON TO THE FINAL \o/

The birds are tweeting, I have a lovely pint of beer, a fantastic cricket match on the radio, a cool breeze through the window, have just seasoned a joint of beef and just prepping the veg for sunday lunch \o/

Came home with a pin of bright beer, free, collection only :P

So off to London for the day tomorrow, any suggestions for sciencey / engineeringy attractions (obvs the science museum, NH et al and the brunel one) but other ones I might have missed?

I am basically listening to this on repeat because it is stuck in my head anyway : youtu.be/v4xZUr0BEfE?t=61 although described as a Mongolian metal band I know a classic blues track when I hear one.

So the now fixed 3d printer is whirring away making parts for the latest silly project and I have just been to farm down the road to pick up a couple of bottles of their excellent cider. Now I need to design a much stronger mount that I thought or make sure I run the motor at a much lower speed!

The gif doesn't really do it justice, it is more effective in real life
