Day 318 - Jan 30th I guess when your time is done on this planet, most of us would prefer to slip away peacefully in our sleep. Not many of us would expect to wake up in the morning again... only this time, dead! That's pretty much how I felt this morning, it was like… Continue reading Day 318 – Leave me… save yourself!
Day 317 - Jan 29th So its official, the whole house has germs now, and we're all suffering one way or another, and consequently none of us are sleeping very well. The coughing is the most common problem amongst us, and it is making sleeping through the night quite a challenge. If we're not waking… Continue reading Day 317 – I may close my eyes, but I’m not asleep
Day 316 - Jan 28th Three hours, it doesn't sound very long does it? It really isn't, and it seems like an especially short amount of time when that's all the sleep you managed to get that night. With Chloe crying for no obvious reason, and becoming more unconsolable the longer I tried to comfort… Continue reading Day 316 – I will survive
Day 315 - Jan 27th Saturday was one of those days where we didn't have any plans and we wanted to keep it that way. The only commitment all day was Olivia's dance class in the morning, although I was very grateful to the wife for taking her, while I stayed at home with Chloe.… Continue reading Day 315 – It’s a PJ kinda day
Day 314 - Jan 26th Something to look forward to, or just habit? Friday night is one of my favourite points in the week. Get the girls to bed, find a good film to put on, pour a drink and open some snacks. As a parent, its a pretty standard weekend, you couldn't really hope… Continue reading Day 314 – The final weekend
Day 313 - Jan 25th Thursday lands and the weekend is almost here. Its a rest day from hitting the gym and I am looking forward to not going anywhere or having to do anything when I get home from work. The plans are fairly loose for the weekend, we don't have a huge amount… Continue reading Day 313 – Its almost the (still dry) weekend
Day 312 - Jan 24th I am back from the gym and have just nailed another 50 minute run on the treadmill, which works out to be about 5 miles. Today was much easier than the last time, and has given me a bit of confidence that I can continue to push this training closer… Continue reading Day 312 – Everyone can do it… yes, everyone!
Day 311 - Jan 23rd Theres no better feeling than jumping on a motorbike and riding home to see your children after a day at work. Today, however, I got home to find it empty. As I knew I would be leaving work slightly later than usual, I suggested that the wife pick Olivia up… Continue reading Day 311 – Lets have some fun instead.
Day 310 - Jan 22nd THE PHOTOS So we are well into the 300s on the photo a day project. I certainly don't feel that it has been my most inspiring year, but I have got some wonderful photos of the girls along the way, and all because I had a camera in my hand… Continue reading Day 310 – Time for a little reflection
Day 309 - Jan 21st Try Dry January they said... you'll sleep better they said... apparently not every night it would seem. Now normally it is me that is ill, picking up any number of germs at work, which considering the nature of my job is especially easy. This time, however, it was the wife's… Continue reading Day 309 – We need to see each other more
