(almost) total eclipse of the sun…

Blimey, it’s not like me to be current on this blog but when an eclipse of the sun conveniently appears through your living room window it would seem churlish not to act upon it. Isn’t it weird how elemental it all got, the sudden fading of light and it got so/even colder and is it just me or did everything go a bit quiet?? Anyway not having any fancy filters or glasses or anything, i was glad when the clouds rolled in as it meant i could actually look at this marvelous thing…
