Day 342 - Feb 23rd The girls, having not spent a whole lot of time outdoors this week, had attempted to destroy the house, spreading toys across most of the downstairs area, but even so we were keen to see a friend of ours, and so invited them over as we hadn't seen them in… Continue reading Day 342 – When friends come to visit
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. Rarely is it good news. Previously I've just tutted and rolled my eyes, not usually paying… Continue reading Day 248 – Hold onto those purse strings
Day 156 - Aug 20th Its now coming up to almost 10 years since I started my photography business. Back in 2008 a good friend managed to convince me that I had enough skill to consider taking it seriously. I decided it was worth a gamble and took the final £400 I could squeeze onto… Continue reading Day 156 – Time is my only enemy
Day 150 - Aug 14th I write today's post from the comfort of my new garden furniture, with a fire in front of me, a beer next to me, and the stars above my head. Life feels good at the moment!

Day 117 - Jul 12th Last nights gym session felt good, I got a bit of a sweat on doing a warm up time on the exercise bike, then took to the treadmill to push my running a bit, in the hope of being in a position to consider this years half marathon. Plan A… Continue reading Day 117 – run like the wind, walk like an arthritic old man!

We should have met the little lady a couple of weeks ago, but had to postpone because of our two snotty little urchins! The wife had made us a… Continue reading Day 087 – One day we’ll be friends
Day 75 - May 31st Today was a day we'd really been looking forward to, catching up with some wonderful friends and their new baby for some breakfast at the local harvester, and not just any breakfast, but all you can eat breakfast with unlimited tea and coffee! It sets you up really well for… Continue reading Day 075 – There’s not a word yet for old friends who’ve just met.
Saturday was a day of 'firsts' which started with a visit to the dentists. It was Olivia's first time visiting the dentist and having her teeth looked at, and the first time I'd gone to the dentist in years, and actually had to pay for it. Yes, it has been that long since I last… Continue reading Day 050 – You’re not my number one any more
Sunday was a stay at home day, with the wife going out and taking the car, I was stuck at home for a while looking after the girls, which was fine as the weather forecast wasn't fantastic and the Russian Grand Prix was on that afternoon anyway. Before there was any hope of watching the… Continue reading Day 044 – Let them be little
Friday is here at last and I waste no time in leaving work and heading home. It always feels nice being home just after 4pm, still plenty of time to play with the girls before they go to bed, or even need their bath! One thing that has become quickly apparent this week, especially today,… Continue reading Day 042 – Just put one foot in front of the other
