Cameras, dust and sensors

Jun 11

Noticed some dust on my camera sensor the other day (well month really). It’s rather stopped my from photog’ing so need to sort it out. Have bought me a sensor cleaner – a sticky tab you press on the sensor (it sounds like the exact thing you are meant NOT to do!) It’s one of these; Will try and clean the cam this weekend after I get back from London. There may be a broken sensor post sometime soon then!!! I might even post some before and after shots of the dust spots against a white wall – you lucky...

Suits and stuff

Jun 11

Going to London on Saturday to have a boys day out shopping – yeah that does sound a bit wierd, but actually there is good reason. Going to go to the 2nd hand /vintage shops looking for a nice suit for the wedding. Ideally a genuine 60’s mod number to go with the vintage theme of the wedding! Should be fun. And they have beer in London...

Wedding things

May 28

The big task at the moment for me is to sort my suit. Current plan is to go retro and find some suitable shops that have genuine 60’s suits for sale. So I am going to go down to London to check out things there – there are a few shops that seem to specialise in this area. Jules thinks there are some Brum based places that do this but I haven’t founf them via google yet. I don’t want to just go to second hand shops though – want something more focused than that else I’ll be at it for...

Aching Leighton

May 28

Did the first full work out last night; Cycling. Weights. x-trainer. Weights. Rowing. Cruches and plank. Then a swim and steam and sauna and jacuzzi! Feelt good, really good, but a bit achey now. Just got to get into the routine. And I left my brand new swimming goggles behind – doh!

Fit Leighton

May 27

Well – I joined a gym. The Warwickshire (http://www.theclubcompany.com/clubs/Warwickshire/) to be precise. And it’s great. I had my induction to the gym equipment this week and unlike my only other experiance of gyms, I didn’t end the session near death, unable to drive or walk properly (thanks Holmes Place!) All the staff are lovely and friendly, and very relaxed. The other patrons seem a non threateningly wide mix of people. And I have my own workout scheme – bit of cardio, bit of weights. My short term goal is to shape up and loose a couple of % body fat. I was pleasantly surprised when I was measured and was 21% body fat – in the healthy zone. But still good to improve a bit. Then can start on toning up and the wonders of free weights. But the machines will suffice for now. My big thing is to avoid scaring myself off from getting fit by overdoing it too soon. So far I am loving it. I shall be a god by the wedding… The pool, sauna, steam room and jacuzzi all...
