For a variety of reasons (illness, holidays and other commitments on both sides), just over 2 months from my birthday I saw some family today and recieved some welcome late birthday presents. A mix of the practical, useful and enjoyable, they show up some of what I enjoy in life. A book about Wimbledon and the queuing and Henry Blofelds recent book, both of which I’m sure will proove entertaining. A new lightweight mini tripod for my camera which will be useful when travelling and a travel mug that will keep my coffee warm for longer. Oddly this is more of an issue at work so it will probably find it’s way there.
