Latest Lego Speed Champion complete 😊

IC 1805 Heart Nebula, Seestar.

Our beautiful star - taken with Seestar. I’m impressed with the detail around the sunspots.

First light with my Seestar. Only managed about 10 minutes before the clouds but I’m very happy with this for a first shot.

Finished reading: Watchers by Dean R. Koontz πŸ“š Just finished the Audio Book version - loved it 😊

How come it’s got so difficult to get basic ingredients, like mushrooms and rice, from UK supermarkets? Seems like I have to visit at least 2 big stores just to get a handful of ingredients to make dinner these days. Are we that screwed now that we struggle to get basic veg?

Currently reading: Love Will Tear Us Apart by C. K. McDonnell πŸ“šI’m loving this series. About a third of the way through this one and I don’t think I’ve ever laughed so much at a book. Absolute gem 😊

Finished my Lego Tranquil Garden - I think this is about my favourite builds so far. So beautiful and I love the customisable positions of the trees etc. I can imagine myself sitting in the temple making tea.

https://daringfireball.net/2023/08/kouvakas_uk_surveillance - gotta love the UK - given this would be entirely the wrong thing to do, I fully expect it to happen, as that seems the norm here these days. I’m not sure if it’s incompetence, or stupidity, but neither is reassuring.

Finished reading: The Complete Stories of J. G. Ballard by J. G. Ballard πŸ“š Took me a loooong time getting through the Audio Book version but quite an experience!

Finished reading: Player Piano by Kurt Vonnegut πŸ“š
