Medieval Man

This is our Master Burley, a Knight in training.......taking a moment of peace before going into battle......
Isn't this photo fantastic?
It was taken by Burley's (aka Johno!) real life wife, the lovely Hannah. I love it - the colours of his jupon go with his battle-scarred armour and his thoughtful expression looks SO real.....one mitt in hand, working out some brilliant strategy to beat his opponent.

I'm reading Adriana Franklin's new "Mistress of the Art of Death" novel, "Grave Goods," and this picture brings the period into focus. Good photo!

Hi CQ!

Just a quick note to let you know that Jeff and I are getting married tomorrow morning at 10am.

It's going to be a very quick ceremony with just a couple of our friends as witnesses. Then a week tomorrow, I fly back to the Uk for a few weeks. There's more information about it on my blog.

Hope you're well!
