I took this picture in the front garden, when we had come back from trying to catch tiddlers in the stream. I've got a new camera, and am busily taking pictures of everything I see!

I went crabbing with Freddie today, at Poole Quay. We had a pair of stinky squid to use as bait, and I had no idea how easy it would be to catch them. We just plonked ourselves on a concrete spur, and dangled our lines in the water. Crab after crab grabbed hold, and in the end we had about 20 or so. None of them were big enough to eat though.

This week we've been playing Bartok's 'The Wooden Prince', and for the next couple of days we are recording it, and I've got to say, it's bloody hard work. We had a backdrop of an abstract film supposedly illustrating the story as we played for the concert yesterday, but it was so abstract as to be almost pointless. One of the trumpeters described it as being Ken Russell without the tits, and he was pretty much right.
Next week it's Bluebeard's Castle, which is supposed to be a bit better.
