Weight and Stuff Report – 4 November 2010

Up again today, despite yesterday’s longish walk. How random, or something.

After all the out and aboutness of the last few days, I’d planned today as a mostly stay at home and get the washing done day, which worked out well, as it was the first thoroughly grey and wet day of the week so far.

I didn’t quite stay in all day, though. First, I went to Tesco’s for some essential supplies[1] and to pour the contents of my penny jar into the magic coin counting machine[2]. While I was out, I popped over to Newcastle to get something else, which I may reveal later.

Today’s pictures – yes, two of them – are of an interesting locomotive I saw at the National Railway Museum on Monday. It is the actual, genuine, real Hogwarts Express:

All Aboard!

All Aboard!

Presumably it’s the off season for wizards

[1] Croissants are essential, right?
[2] On balance, I’m prepared to let the machine have its 8.9% cut of my coinage rather than spend ages sorting, counting, bagging and waiting in the bank to pay it in.
