Well over the past few days I have managed to indulge at least 3 of my passions ...
- I finally found time to get over to the second hand record shops in Notting Hill Gate, where I picked up a few of the items on my latest wants list - a couple of CDs by Bert Jansch, 'Birthday Blues' and 'Rosemary Lane', a couple of live CDs by Fairport Convention, 'Wee Tam' by The Incredible String Band CD, and one of the few Richard and Linda Thompson CDs I don't have, 'Pour Down Like Silver' ... plus a fair amount of other stuff.
- Some 200 vintage postcards arrived for me to sort through. Some I'll keep whilst others will appear on ebay or my vintage postcard web site.
- Whilst at a family wedding over in Cambridgeshire, I went to several places I'd never been before. The weather on Sunday was fantasic and we were treated to clear blue skies as we took a stroll through the grounds of Wimpole Estate, near Royston. I took some photo's of the grounds but need to recover the disc reader from one of the kid's bedrooms before I can upload them ... unfortunately that will take longer than I have this evening, as despite having a great weekend, it was much too short and alas it's work again tomorrow.
So, instead of sharing a photograph from the Wimpole Estate, here's a vintage postcard near the top of the pile of 200.
