Weight and Stuff Report – 31 December 2014

Back up a bit today, in a typical end of month, and indeed year, manner. but never mind. After a quick bit of shopping this morning[1], I decided to take the X-T1 for a final walk of the year. By the time I got to Newcastle, it was beginning to be a bit dull and overcast, which took some of my enthusiasm away, so I didn’t stay long. In any case, I wanted to be out of the city centre before it got crowded (there’s a parade thingy on, which might be nice, but it would involve too many people…).

The step count today comes from the iPhone rather than the Fitibit. My shiny new and allegedly better Fitbit appears to have died, possibly due to being even less waterproof than claimed. After having worn it in the shower (which should have been OK), it developed condensation and then a tendency to drain the battery in nothing flat. I’ll be taking that up with Fitbit later….

Today’s photo is a last look at something that’s likely to change. For many years, it’s been a fun thing to take photographs of the fragmented reflections in the glass wall around the Blackett Street end of Eldon Square shopping centre. But that end is to be redone as a restaurant quarter, with actual windows, so these reflections are likely to become unavailable. So here’s one I took today:
