Porridge pot, flood and stick.

1. Porridge boiling up in our pot -- which looks like a cauldron with its curved grey flanks. Nick has just commented that he is glad we bought that pot. It doesn't go in the dishwasher, but it was only £19, and it goes from stovetop to oven, and is smart enough for the table.

2.  When we pass by on our way to swimming Tonbridge Castle moat is fuller than I've ever seen it, with water over the path, from last night's rain. After lunch we walk the same way with Tim, the water level is back to normal by some miracle of engineering. The river is running fast and deep, though. The water is mud brown and  whole branches are clipping along in the current.

3. Alec helps Godfather Timothy with his cane. After we get home, I see from his blog Heropress that Tim has put a suitably geeky spin on the incident!
