As a photographer, I love when I have a camera in my hand, nothing fills my heart with joy more than capturing memories of my girls growing up, but I also love it when I am out capturing all sorts of other things too. I am pretty hooked on making memories. Life is precious and… Continue reading Tips for completing a project 365
Day 335 - Feb 16th Its the final day of the first half term since Christmas, and as it is Friday I am thinking of nothing more than going home nice and early to spend some quality time with the family, put my feet up with a beer or two, and watch a good film… Continue reading Day 335 – Sing like no-one is listening
Day 329 - Feb 10th Our Saturday started with Olivia's dance lesson, as usual, although it involved me taking her instead this week, while the wife stayed at home with Chloe. The nice thing about these dance lessons is that they don't start until 10:30am meaning we can take it nice and slow in the… Continue reading Day 329 – I sure ain’t 21 any more
Day 322 - Feb 3rd Two years ago today we'd booked ourselves in... not your usual booking, like a table in a restaurant. No, this was quite a unique booking. After the complications in delivering Olivia the first time around, we elected to have a planned c-section delivery for our new arrival. Today was the… Continue reading Day 322 – There is this girl who stole my heart and she calls me daddy
Day 321 - Feb 2nd Dry January is over, I made a month without booze... well, if you exclude the pint I had on the final evening, but that was for a good reason! The times I had found it hardest were on Friday and Saturday nights, which were the times that me and the… Continue reading Day 321 – Some things are worth waiting for
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 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 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 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 301 - Jan 13th I was feeling productive this Saturday, I had made a list of things I wanted to do, and they were realistic targets. Things needed cleaning, sorting and reorganising, and I had a weekend to tick them off my list. However, plans do change, and things can crop up. The morning… Continue reading Day 301 – Is there anything more important than family?
