Part Three
And now for something more recent: In March, as already moaned about, all of my various lumix cameras fucked up, one after the other, and eventually I bought a new one, and things started looking up. All pics in Taunton - is there anywhere else?

Oof. Been away for a while, didn't realize how long. Lots of stuff to do (all goodish), loads of pictures to process, partly because of having a new decent camera for the first time in an age, and partly due to the continuing new custom of spending one daay a week sallying forth with Scrap and Ms Thang to enjoy Somerset. I'm going to have to be much more selective than usual (cries of approbation from the one and nines)...
