"Where do you see yourself in 5 years' time?"

(It's a rubbish interview question, not least because if I'd tried to answer it five years ago, I would have been so wide of the mark, the application form would have needed to be size A0.)

But the point is... well... this is a bit of a milestone... it's my 500th blogpost on Imperfect and Tense.

So, in recognition of where it all began in 2009, with a little encouragement from Second Born and that first tentatively spurious reference to Dodie Smith, I give you 2014's version of my profile picture.

"I read this sitting in the kitchen sink..."

This post refers to the launch of the 'other' photo.
But what's that logo?


My immense gratitude to Our Lass for the photos, to Second Born for the fantastic shirt and to Dodie Smith for writing 'I capture the castle'.

And on a solstice too. Hopefully, bang on the Summer solstice to the very minute (09.51GMT, apparently).

I just 'knew' you'd pick me up ;o)

And I did remark to someone this morning that, today, a very good friend of mine would be uttering the "downhill to Winter" sentence :o)

Sorry to the above but why the sink fetish or are you soaking your corns?

Surely you're winding me up, Captain S? The best first line of a book in literary history (ok, that's a personal view) from Dodie Smith? Next you'll be demanding a recount of Dalmations.
