Absolutely love this Lego Speed Champions McLaren F1 car. Remarkably detailed for it’s scale. Built it whilst watching qualifying from Imola. As ever, Max blowing everyone away but Lando and Oscar have really stepped up. Shame the Mercs seem to be pushing forward to stand still. 🏎️

@mattypenny Yup, should be there. I find these big games are rarely enjoyable until the final whistle but couldn't possibly miss it. :-)

A rare atmosphere at St. Mary’s last night. Not always the most intimidating place for away teams but yesterday was special. Definitely a step up and the team responded. Great performance and now for an expensive trip to Wembley next weekend.

We made a visit to see First Born a couple of days ago and took the opportunity to visit Ross-on-Wye. Nice part of the world with a town centre a little less cookie-cutter than most. We took a wander along the Riverside Walk enjoying the paddle boarders, the spring sun and these swans in flight.

Miami GP turned out much better than expected. Delighted for Lando, it was always a matter of when, not if, he’d get that win. Piastri very unlucky but it looks like McLaren have found some decent pace. Even Lewis looked like he was having fun and we haven’t seen much of that this season. 🏎️

Bubbles, bubbles, everywhere. This one was taken by Last Born a couple of years ago in our garden. Love the colours.

My hometown of Southampton has a deep history, with the general area being inhabited for thousands of years. Large parts of the city’s 800+ year old walls remain and the area has an important maritime history. The Titanic and Spitfire stories loom heavy along with the impact of the Blitz.

Smoke drifts on the night air…

A night view down the river shows a muddy foreground as the tide is out. Moored boats sit on the water and in the distance smoke from an industrial chimney drifts from left to right.

Football can be very tribal, but it’s an incredible source of community. From the small group of strangers you see around you every week, to the club community of like-minded supporters and the national & international community of fans. So many people united in the love of club, country & sport.

Old English and the many local dialects are a constant source of surprise, despite living in the UK my entire life.

This little critter is Peter. He’s a six year old Netherland Dwarf and the friendliest little fella you’re likely to meet.

Both my girls have a real thing about not breaking the spine of a book, yet they love a second hand bookshop.

Another from the archives today as we don’t have so many mountains in my part of the world. However, our Disneyland Paris trip left me with great memories of Space Mountain. Got a seat right up front for an excellent ride.

Not a lot of ice at this time of year so had to dig in the archives again. This is from a frozen windscreen a few years back. The patterns formed in nature never cease to fascinate. ❄️

This little fella has been part of family birthday celebrations for the last few years. The numbers are changeable so he just keeps coming back.

Transcendence is a tough prompt, but it always conjures spiritual thoughts in me. So, I’ve had to go back to last year and a trip to Gloucester Cathedral, an incredible building and a true monument to the faith and worship of those who built it.

Intricate masonry of an internal cathedral corner, with windows on each side. The windows are arched and the walls curve into patterned stonework of the ceiling. A curved, almost S shaped, support snakes from lower right to upper left sweeping into the ceiling curve.

The urban pigeon is the very epitome of flâneur. Constantly wandering the streets, aloof and aimless.

Stopped briefly in Gloucestershire this afternoon to grab a shot of these spring lambs. So small and chasing each other round in the sunshine. Few things beat the British countryside when the sun shines.

Lego succulents (including a cactus or two). These belong to the last born, but they’re kinda fun and easier to keep than real ones!

Wow. Leicester dropping points against Plymouth is pretty unexpected. This Championship season keeps twisting & turning. Just goes to show how tough the grind towards the end of the season is. Massive chance for #SaintsFC to apply some pressure against a tough Watford side tomorrow. Massive game. ⚽

@manton Ideally I want one place to post and host my content. The consumer should then be able to decide what they want to see. Allowing folks to filter content types when they follow would be ideal. Following from a feed reader? Maybe you only want long posts. From Pixelfed? Just select photos etc

@help Deleting a Page or changing the slug on a Page doesn't seem to actually delete the page. It goes from the backend UI and the blog nav, but the page remains accessible by the URL. Is there a way to clean this up?
