Away for a few days!

Yesterday the icicles outside our window looked like this.



Today they have almost entirely melted away. We're hoping for good train services tomorrow to take us down to Bolton to visit my parents. We'll be back hopefully in time for me to read (briefly and at short notice) at TraVerses at the Traverse Theatre, Edinburgh. I'll be (trains permitting) reading alongside a showing of Alastair Cook's film of my poem Adrift.

Have a great trip, I'm hoping to go visit my mother next month. Icicles are always facinating.

Have fun! I like the links you add. Never know where I am going to end up.

My dad's appearing in that! He plays the saxophone in Trio Verso. Have a great weekend.

Keep an eye out for the Cauldstane Slap from the train! You can see it on the left for a fair section of the line between Edinburgh and Carstairs, from about Kirknewton onwards. Good luck with the trains, and have a good few days away.

Good luck with the journey! I'm trying my utmost to get a night's pass to go to TraVerses: now, even more ammunition!

Hi Juliet. Our icicles have disappeared over the weekend but are due back again tomorrow alas.

Love the film and poem Adrift. Hope you had a great time in Bolton.
