Lamp-working

Steve Ramsay from Imperial College came and gave a little lamp-working workshop yseterday lunchtime. He made it look very easy...






... but it's not!
I had a go today at making some bubbles (un-round) and hands. The one in the centre is particularly sad, stump-fingered.
Practice.

Roots & a Robin in Regent's Park



On Friday i cycled up to Regent's park, in the snow, searching for roots. A helpful arboricultural officer that i'd e-mailed had told me about a tree that had recently fallen down, so i found some good ones.
A little robin hopped about really close to me, completely unafraid - looking for bugs and worms, i guess, though i don't think he found many in the snow...
