Made a paper mache cave with my son for his year 1 homework.

He had to make a shoe-box "habitat" to show what lived there. Suggested examples were desert, coral reef, polar, jungle etc. I was very pleased when he decided on a cave (which will include spiders, bats, blind fish and an olm).

Pictures to follow when it's finished  :)

You better put pictures up here when finished, I'm genuinely buzzing for it ha!

Smiling at the trouble a certain ex-doctor got into trouble with his wife for going down Swildons's yesterday. They had to exit via the hollow tree.

Looking at photos of Fairy Cave Quarry. Withyhill was extremely active with a stream gushing out of the entrance pipe. I do hope that any further silting has not been too bad. We might have to swim over to the dig tomorrow.

I repaired the spine, which had just about completely fallen off, of my somewhat worn copy of Cave Hunting by Boyd Dawkins. Bit of glue and some elastic bands to hold things while they set and now a lot less disintegrated looking!

listened to the BCA AGM debate (to see how badly Rostam had made me sound by editing) and then voted in the ballot.
