Arrived back from my holiday in Austria yesterday. The holiday was great; I got a lot of mountain walking done, and took over 1Gb of photos - 300Mb more than last year. (But I took them in a higher quality mode, so I suppose that was cheating. I actually took slightly less in number - 1051 this year, 1097 last year.)

The journey back went smoothly, except that the one brief torrential rainstorm in Manchester that day had to coincide with when we were moving luggage around outside...

And we arrived home to find that, to our surprise, our house had grown scaffolding whilst we were away. Apparently the builders are starting some work on our slate-covered wall (i.e. attaching the slates properly, so they don't fall off and hit people) which we asked them to do sometime last year, but we were told it would be some time before they could start. So, naturally, they manage to pick a time to start whilst we're on holiday. Oh well, they haven't wrecked much yet.
