Not the best picture quality, but that's a little snapshot from Muse's gig in Birmingham on Tuesday. Top notch night and a great performance.

I went to Elveden Centre Parcs on Sunday for my sister's birthday which was lovely; we all had fun in the swimming pool (which they call the subtropical swimming paradise, i think, and that it is!) and watched the firework display before having some sausages off the barbeque. Lovely stuff! I've got a couple of nice videos from the fireworks, but just need to get the files rotated and uploaded. I think my nephew was struggling to keep up though bless him...

We also had another win with the uni hockey team...only 13-1 this time though, we're letting our standards slip!

It was my sister's birthday yesterday and i've had a bit of fun putting together her present; a cherry themed hamper! I was concerned that it would be a trickier theme to go with, but after a bit of looking around i found myself having to be pickier with what i bought. There's the standard things like cherry jam and bakewell tarts and a couple of less familiar bits like cherry jaffa cakes and cherry beer. I love spending the time searching for bits i'd like to include and then enjoy thinking about the presentation. I'd say it's a win-win situation for me and my Sis!
