I went to the Leeds Museum this week. There's a lot of stuff there (dead things) and also an interactive game that taught me how to use a sextant. I made the passage to Calcutta, no problem.
There was one cabinet with loads of birds in that were just laying there, with no eyes. They didn't have marbles in, nor were they posed. Just prone, with white cotton stuffed in their eye sockets.
Then, despite being 26, I did some wax rubbings of old English coins. I was quite proud of myself until I caught my reflection doing wax rubbings of old English coins.
Ultimately though, I got to see what Leeds Museum will do with a (replica?) crocodile. Might be an alligator. Not sure, it was upside-down. 10% discount code: tometoyou
Yeah...it is weird at Jimmy Nail's house...
This Tuesday saw the launch of our watches on Kickstarter and thanks to the crowd (you!), we were funded in just over 24 hours.
