Day 295 - Jan 7th Today was on of those days that Olivia is always counting down to, 4 sleeps to go, 3 sleeps to go... you get the idea, it was a childrens birthday party. It was the son of one of our friends, and in a rather exciting twist to the usual birthday… Continue reading Day 295 – If snow won’t come to us, then we go to the snow
Day 287 - Dec 30th Back to the gym for me this morning. I have been thinking about the new year, and my eating and drinking over the last few weeks. I haven't overindulged quite as much as I usually do over the festive period, I have been a little more reserved about it this… Continue reading Day 287 – Maybe an old dog can be taught new tricks
Day 284 - Dec 27th Not wanting the Christmas celebrations to end just yet we'd planned to meet the rest of the wife's family for a meal today, only during the night we'd had a fairly significant covering of snow. It wasn't exactly bringing the city to its knees, but the side roads were a… Continue reading Day 284 – Nothing will keep me from my food
Day 283 - Dec 26th Weeks of planning, preparation and stealth had all paid off, but it seemed to be over so quickly. Christmas was now over, and today was the British tradition of Boxing day, although no-one seems to know exactly what it is or where it came from. There are numerous theories as… Continue reading Day 283 – What is boxing day anyway?
Day 282 - Dec 25th Ah, Christmas day is here at last, and even as an adult I always feel a little bit like each Christmas day is a little bit magical and different from any other day. The truth is we know as grown ups that its just another day, but that doesn't stop… Continue reading Day 282 – Merry Christmas everyone!
Day 281 - Dec 24th With Saturday out of the way, it was already Christmas eve, and thank goodness for the wife being so on top of things and virtually everything ready to go. A couple of cards hadn't been delivered and there were a few presents waiting to be delivered, but they'd have to… Continue reading Day 281 – T’was the night before Christmas…
Day 280 - Dec 23rd Today didn't quite go as planned. In the morning I was dropping the wife into town for her to have breakfast with her friends, and then pick her up afterwards so we could visit our friends for lunch and present swapping. While she was with her friends I was supposed… Continue reading Day 280 – What? More pizza??
Day 279 - Dec 22nd So, last elf photo, promise. I seem to have lost a couple of images along the way, which is really frustrating, a combination of falling that far behind and being busy with the build up to Christmas, as well as editing wedding photos and trying to create a new elf… Continue reading Day 279 – Are you still here, Mr Elf?
Day 278 - Dec 21st A day at work that we'd been looking forward to for a while, the reward for a term of hard work, we were being treated to lunch out as a class at a Pizza Hut restaurant. Its not often we get trips out like this, but the class had worked… Continue reading Day 278 – Making a plan is only half the battle
Day 277 - Dec 20th I'm pretty pleased with myself for keeping this elf thing going so far, although this one kept me up pretty late, taking quite a bit longer than I had anticipated. It did make a lovely decoration though, even without the elf himself in place, but its never going to last!… Continue reading Day 277 – The magic has begun!
