Stuff Report – 5 November 2013

As my brother[1] had to go to work today, I took myself into Cardiff on the train. I had a gentle wander in the direction of the National Museum, where I enjoyed some of the art and saw an interesting exhibition on the life and work of Alfred Russel Wallace.

I paused part way around the museum for a coffee and a welshcake. Well, OK, two welshcakes if you must know.

After that I had another wander around Cardiff, stopping off at the Cardiff Story exhibition in the old library building. Or is that the old old library building, seeing as the one that replaced it has itself been replaced?

My Fitbit seems to have been playing up a bit, as it reckons my step count was 2,577, and I’m pretty sure I walked more than that. But as it intermittently claims that its battery is running out, I suspect it may be more generally confused.

Today’s photo is of the gloriously silly clock tower of Cardiff Castle. This is what happens when an insanely rich person employs an ever-so-slightly eccentric architect.
