Keyfob, Abandonment, A Rainbow and The Mists of Time

New feature after Su's news story of the day at the end of this blog post...

This is the Newcastle Makerspace 3D-printed keyfob that Glen Beestone gave me on Symi a couple of weeks ago.  I finally checked out its flouresecent capabilities last night - excellent!
We've been sorting through books and other stuff as part of our putting the house back together after pre-Symi decorating. We got out this afternoon into the sunshine and appreciated this pretty Virginia creeper opposite our house.
A discarded garden gate - a first! 
At the top of the "dog walking field", an abandoned pushchair - no sign of parent or baby/toddler anywhere. Very strange… 
A rainbow over Solsbury Hill came out as we tootled about the field. 
Bella happily sniffed her way round every blade of grass. 
More cyclamen in flower. 
Liked the colours and shapes in this conifer hedge.
Is it art, or just a stretchy bit of flashing on the electricity sub-station? 
The skies darkened as we headed for home. 
A discarded dressing gown cord? 
The rain started before we made it home, so we got a little wet. Luckily, we made it inside before it really tipped down. Ah, the joys of the UK! 
This day a year ago, we went off to Widcombe before going to Westonbirt to enjoy their autumn colours.

 Pet dog Charlie 'can predict toddler's epileptic fit'

A new feature for the blog starts today - When We Were Young(er). This will look back at our earlier Grecian oddyseys - I first went in 1972, my first ever island visited being Mykonos where, I bumped into an old school friend on the beach!
