Well, almost. There was some sun for a while, then it got tired and went behind a cloud or two for a wee rest. It was there, though for a while.
Scamp had decided that we needed to go in to the toon today on the bus, because we were going for lunch. As it turned out, it was a good idea, but we weren’t sure where we were going. It was finally decided that we would go to my new favourite restaurant / pizzeria, Paesano. There, I’ve spelled it right first time without checking. I checked afterwards, but that doesn’t count. I had pizza (everything is a pizza there) with Salsiccia and Friarielli (Friarelli are a green vegetable like Broccoli but are only grown in Campania and they are in a category all their own). A pizza bianco which doesn’t have tomato sauce. I also had a side of lovely balsamic onions. Scamp had Burrata (a fresh Italian cheese made from mozzarella and cream), Cherry tomatoes and Basil and a boring old Pizza Margherita. Lovely!
Afterwards we went for a coffee in ‘Nero and that was the extent of our stravaigin’ in the toon. Bus home too and the sun came out of hiding and started shining again for a while.
Not a lot to take photographs of today and I only took the one camera, the Oly 5. I liked the distorted reflections of the buildings overlaid on the internal details of 110 Queen Street and it’s my PoD. When I got home I’d left myself a reminder to glue the little metal cap on my Oly 5 (It fell of the other day). When I was doing it, I found a little metal circlip that had broken and decided to pull it off. When I pulled it off, it unfortunately took the plastic shutter button off with it! Oh dear, I’ve just broken what has recently become my go-to camera – of course the actual words I said were not “Oh dear”. The sentence was much longer and contained a lot of sweary words. However, I managed to find the offending article and also managed to clip it back in place. Then I glued on the offending metal cap with Araldite (other Two-part Epoxy Resin Adhesives are available). It still seems to be working. Moral of the story – If it ain’t Really broke, don’t fix it. It worked perfectly before without the little metal cap.
Looking cold for tomorrow, but hopefully we’ll be on a warm train for a change. Letting the train take the strain.
