Day 254 - Nov 27th Working in education, what is the one thing guaranteed to get teachers sweating a little bit? Well, the news that Ofsted will be visiting in the morning is a sure fire way.

Day 253 – Look who we’ve found!

Day 253 - Nov 26th No hanging around this morning, a fairly early start with a childrens soft play birthday party to kick off the day, it's a bit of a drive over there and we're also not 100% sure about exactly where we're going, so we need to be out of the house on… Continue reading Day 253 – Look who we’ve found!

Day 251 – Look and ye shall find

Day 251 - Nov 24th Friday means getting home from work early, but this doesn't always lend itself to having more time for a photo. It was a day of relief, as an assessment at work that had been bothering me for a while was finally out of the way, and I could relax and… Continue reading Day 251 – Look and ye shall find

Day 250 – The morning after the night before

Day 250 - Nov 23rd So some kind of crazy weather hit the UK last night. It made riding on a motorbike on the motorway for the first time pretty only for the brave or stupid...

Day 247 – it’ll be worth waiting for

Day 247 - Nov 20th A quiet and uneventful Monday, just the way I like it. It feels very much like things are on pause for me at the moment, while I wait for the opportunity to collect the new motorbike, a Suzuki GSX650F. The punchy 650cc engine is a huge step up from the… Continue reading Day 247 – it’ll be worth waiting for

Day 248 – Hold onto those purse strings

Day 248 - Nov 21st Its the time of year that few people look forward to, the government budget announcement where we get to see how financially difficult or easy the government want to make the next 12 months.

Day 246 – Keep the rubber side down

Day 246 - Nov 19th Now I am settling into my early 40s it is fair to say I am quite a different person than when I was in my early 30s.

Day 245 – fun with a 50mm

Day 245 - Nov 18th Todays shot was simple, Chloe was starting to feel better after having a temperature and not eating much this week, and was happily sat watching tv. I had put my 50mm lens on my camera, and knew that I'd get a cracking shot out of it. The 50mm f/1.2 lens… Continue reading Day 245 – fun with a 50mm
