a weekend of limited tech

Over the weekend our TiVo box decided to die and for some odd reason my laptop refused to connect to our wireless. Thus, a weekend of limited technology. In truth, Mitch and I have been contemplating downgrading our Virgin account to just broadband for quite sometime now and I think the defunct TiVo box has spurred us on. I didn't miss the tv at all. There's rarely anything on I actually want to watch and if there is we could, in future, just catch it on i-player or 4oD. I did miss the internet though. Saturday was mostly spent in brockwell park - the weather in brixton was superb - firstly going for a jog and then, post shower, lunch and some reading *bliss*, before heading back to flat to cook dinner which we ate, you guessed it, in the park. Sadly, sunday was v.cloudy and windy so I did some doodling - nothing really beats drawing - whilst catching up with Mad Men and starting 30Rock (Mitch v.kindly helped me out with his portable hard drive/media player set-up so I could watch them, so I guess there was rather a lot of tech going on on sunday). I also cut out more flags to add to the growing pile needed for the wedding bunting :) In the evening we took a bus over to peckham rye to see the visiting fun fair. A quiet weekend but lovely just the same. I do hope that's not the last we'll see of the sun!

In the games arcade at the peckham rye fun fair. It was a victorian era affair with some of the rides still running on steam! The arcade was basically a huge collection of, mostly, working vintage games.

As if I couldn't get enough of bird families at the moment, we happened upon a family of canada geese at one of the ponds in brockwell park on saturday. The goslings were so cute and fluffy.
