Pillow slip angel costume for those who were interested! Can't see the stitching from here.. :)

Here's one of the pictures. Maybe late 19th c?

Clever Twitter people, please can you help? Given 2 rather nice etchings, done by this chap. Does anyone know anything about him?

Also tackled some Xmas shopping. Time meant a choice between visiting new John Lewis or RAMM. Chose RAMM of course!

I have accidentally put up a Xmas decoration. I bought it today, and just wanted to test it...

On my walk to school saw this cat taking shelter. Not quite sure what he's done with the birds..

Lovely customising! I'm making mittens for E. On second flower now..    

The other chickens are taking advantage of Agatha grief, and trying to colonise the house..

The dot in the distance is Exeter Cathedral.

Just had to push my way gently through a herd of cows. Big aren't they..

Countess Wear Paper Mills 1638-1885. They originally ground corn, but made paper from rags from 1638. Inc for Times of India in 18th and 19th c.

Lots of Himalayan Balsam growing alongside the Exe. Naughty, but pretty!

We're off - and the mist is clearing! :)

Our fishing boat! Off to sea in the mist. What could possibly go wrong..?

Vivien Leigh's nightdress from Gone with the Wind.

The Cygnet. Built in 1861 for Captain George Peacock by Dixons of Exmouth. Restored for Topsham Museum.

Flock of oyster catchers at Topsham.

Yeah, looking forward to lighting ours too. Shit loads of man made fibres for fuel. #toweringinferno

The rest of the fruit and veg may have suffered this year, but at least the grapes are doing ok!

A trip to lovely Shaldon today. Good little zoo, then down the tunnel to Ness Cove for a picnic.
