It's hard to believe, but my brother is a fully fledged rock doc, a doctor of geological stuff, on loan from Australia. We are very much enjoying having him here. Today, having navigated sick babies, freezing fog, various other things and goodness knows what, we took a day out for the girls to do some christmas shopping in Cambridge. Since we were there, we went to the Sedgwick museum and spent some time looking at rocks.

You'd be amazed how excitable a geologist can get about rocks with wiggles in.
You can fault rocks like these. (Ba dum tish).
Fossilised lumps of bacteria. Really.

We like having uncle rich here. It's been a long three years.
