Well I'm back. I have been glancing at LJ, but haven't been reading stuff in depth. I'll probably get around to doing a more detailed catch up over the next couple of days.
Since I last posted, I've been to Barometer World. It was everything we expected and more. They had a device called the Tempest Prognosticator which was powered by leeches! They even had a leech in a seperate jar demonstrating their ability to predict the weather. Didn't buy myself a barometer though.
There was lots of good food. And lots and lots of slacking. Journey back was OK. Not too much traffic.
