Today I have mostly been doing work for the cricket club. I fixed two door handles that had been wrenched off, sorted out a water supply for the allotments (possibly also getting talked into taking one on myself - maybe after the garden is complete), researched the cost of accepting cards at the bar (likely prohibitive) and converted some very pixellated advertising material into a vector format that will look much better when blown up to 8x4ft.

The afternoon I spent at the funeral for Philippa's dad, which was a lovely service, for all that it's a heartbreaking, unexpected loss. He and my Dad were so similar, and the consolation now they're both gone is much the same - there's no more pain, no more embarrassment at not being able to do what they used to do, but still a massive hole in life where they were. I'm waiting to collect the photos from scattering Dad's ashes in the Lakes to come back, and I might write up that trip once I've got them.

Tomorrow should be a more practical day at home, with several car jobs, some cabling to tidy up, and the ongoing network/media centre/digitisation work. There's also some re-proofing of walking gear to do, the grass to cut, and a tent size test to do, so that I can see which of the many variants on the Laser/Zephyros might be best suited for me.
