Popped down to the seaside for a lovely outing yesterday. Didn't actually see the sea as we spent a leisurely afternoon in the pub at the Gladstone Mini Con, meeting other creators, drinking beer and even selling the odd comic. Managed to bag the last half table and shared it with groovy Jimi Gherkin. Had the pleasure of meeting Dr Parsons and the Sound of Drowning among others but headed back to town before the evening's musical entertainment. All in all a very convivial event and, I would venture, a successful format.
Woke up this morning to find that it was snowing. A thick white blanket lay over the garden and the cemetary behind and more was coming thick and fast. Ned rushed out to the park for some winter fun with his mates. By mid afternoon, it had stopped and melted away as quickly as it appeared.
