Sunday 15 May 2011: Blackness
And possibly the next generation of blippers? (if they stopped sooking on lollipops long enough).
A grand afternoon out down by the Firth of Forth with blippers Andmoff, Instography (and his good lady), as well as various smaller people of the type shot here.
A wander around the castle at Blackness was preferable to any football pitched battle today and this one is pretty unique as it seems only half sculpted out of the bare rock it sits on. Not a huge amount going on in there but it's been used as a location for film and TV through the years (some Australian chap called Mel Gibson popped in to play a bit of Shakespeare for Franco Zeffirelli back in 1990).
We stopped off to buy some ingredients for a traditional Sunday curry on the road home and to cash in some coppers that Euan had collected yesterday during his bedroom blitz. Turns out, as well as the camera he found during the unveiling, he's now £18.12 richer. It pays to have a rake in those dusty corners apparently.
Back home to take apart a bed (why is there always at least one bolt/screw/fixing that refuses to budge?) that ended in a hacksaw/brute force combination that now has the mangled metal lying outside awaiting a trip to the skip and me needing a lie down.
All in all, a pretty packed Sunday.
EDIT: Shhh! Don't tell her I said anything, but it looks like another Delph Wynd Daily householder's sneaked in her first blip. Next generation right enough.
