Simpson Pot

Simpson Pot Sunday, 11 December 2016 ‘Thanks for breakfast!’ I wanted to say that but I seem to miss the right moment somehow. SUSS people seem so efficient.

Swan Dike Pot Thursday, 24 November 2016 After a week of being bored shitless doing uni work and with good weather arriving at last, I needed to get outside. I suggested an evening trip to Swan Dike, and it wasn’t too hard to convince George and Nadia, George being a lazy layabout and Nadia being […]
