Working backwards, I went for a longer walk in the woods at my local farm this morning. Last week, I’d not been able to explore very far due to a barrier across the path but I noticed the rope had been removed this time. And I’m glad it had because I came across a little free library amongst the wild garlic and the bluebells.
There was actually a book that appealed to me to read – and of course I didn’t have any donations to hand but next week this can be remedied. Provided, of course, the barrier hasn’t gone back up again.
Turning now to a completely different environment, a friend and I explored Leeds South Bank last weekend. There are plans to overhaul the area, which has been largely industrial wasteland for at least as long as I’ve lived in Leeds Metropolitan District. Indeed, there is evidence already of this overhaul.
Elsewhere there was building work in progress as well as what appeared to be a random art installation.
So, where is the Egyptian?
