The trip to York went well although it took a long time to get the shots as the autumn sun is lower in the sky and often means unwanted shadows. Lots of new buses around with electrics on park & rode and the East Yorks buses from Hull which I thought looked good in the new livery. We then crawled across to Scarborough which meant contending with a thousand or more caravans in either direction plus road works and small roads. I remembered why I don't go there very often its a pig to get shots with buses not all meeting at any one point albeit 'near' the station and the road have chronic congestion. We then decided ( Mandy actually) that it would be better to avoid the motorway traffic and come back across country, Wensleydale was really scenic and gorgeous little villages and towns so well kept. This was a marathon drive and meant we were back very late.
First things after DVD orders was to pop out and get the next lot of material for the display cabinet. I got screws for fastening down the shelves and various fillers. The electric screwdriver made short work of the screwing and the filler always makes a mess, this was for the bigger gaps, I'd also put in cut offs to help so it wasn't all filler. I've now vaccumed up and ready for the finer filler and smoothing the timber. Next comes the undercoat. I've got all the photos on the memory card in my still camera ready to file. I need to add recent releases to our Ebay shop, the site was down a lot today but then started up again, their site claimed all was normal but on the 'whats down' site about 600 people had entered EBay problems. Little be way of internet orders for a second day but with the large phone orders and post it is still busy. I've started editing the York trip. Its Skype night with Tina and Max in New Zealand.
