Filler meme

Have taken on a job which takes up all my hours. And then some. Work, eat, work, sleep, work, eat, work ad infinitum ad nauseum. Actually, not quite ad infinitum but till Christmas, but right now it feels like ad infinitum. Managed to squeeze a weekend to Holland in. Will get round to posting photos. And more news.
