Some more holiday schnapps

I sort of fell off the Blogtoberfest wagon over the weekend. A "post-a-day" went out the window and there are now 306 unread items in my blog reader. So here is another holiday picture from Germany to try and make amends.

This photograph was taken in the very beautiful Bavarian town of Bamberg.

There's nothing vaguely amusing about this lovely detail from the Romanesque cathedral ... other than I thought it was a gargoyle. Gargoyle, you say? Yes, well my architectural knowledge is clearly sketchy.

What kind of evils did I think this would ward off? Well, if the interior of this little building is anything like the state of my house today, then it would be very scary indeed. Must be off now - housework to do!

Join in the fun of Blogtoberfest over at Big Cat's Emporium.


  1. Great photo, yeah it's hard to find the time to post every day especially on weekends!

  2. I know how quick that Reader can get out of control. Thanks for still taking the time to comment on all my posts. You are a sweety.
    It is amazing how guilty you can feel at missing one day - you do such a great job too to get in there most days.

    Thanks for the tip about Dylon run remover. I'm not so worried about Ollie having a couple of pink items, but I did have some clothes that are on loan in the same wash! I'll have to give it a try!

  4. Only 306?? I had over 700...As you can imagine, keeping on top of my Bloglines is key! rofl None of this missing five days because you are super busy rubbish! :p
