Some flowers for your Friday. Aren't they lovely? (My Friday consisted of school and cafés and skipping ropes and sunshine and an impropmtu picnic and old friends and some nice, sturdy beer. What a way to begin a weekend!)
Yesterday evening I did some ship maintenance. I spent almost three hours up on a yard, at about 25 metres, with the Uspenski cathedral to my right, the mostly unfrozen sea before me, the setting sun on my back. It's gruelling work, but the view more than makes up for it. I hadn't realised how much I've been missing climbing. My hands are dry and full of cuts and plasters, but I don't mind, it just makes me feel like I've been working hard.
