My Mark 2 is finally here – only a year after Studio Neat planned. Still, worth waiting for.

Apparently students these days buy their clothes by the kilo…

It may be bitterly cold here in Sussex, but the beach knows it’s spring. The first of the plants that dominate the beach during the summer months are pushing their way through the shingle.

Just looking forwards to the temperatures catching up…

Chose a different spot down by the harbour arm today. I’m tucked into a wee hollow, with the structure of the arm itself sheltering me from what is a bitterly cold wind.

I’m still wearing a fleece and a gillet, though. It is bitter this afternoon. We even had a flurry of snow earlier, but I’d be amazed if we see any settle this far south.

I love this time on a Wednesday.

I suspect that this is the first time I’ve worn this gilet since the autumn, given that I just found this in the pocket…

An unusual beach find today.
