Day 350 - Mar 3rd It's still mighty cold outside, everything is covered in white, and the heating has been on for almost a week now. Thankfully the end is in sight, the snow has stopped and the wind has died down. The temperature is set to go up a bit and we can even… Continue reading Day 350 – I’m dreaming of a white Easter
Day 347 - Feb 28th It's being called The Beast From The East, and more recently the weather forecasters have been referring to it as Storm Emma... whatever you want to call it, the cold Siberian air it's bringing with it has been pushing that mercury down even further. Scotland seems to be in the… Continue reading Day 347 – Is it cold enough for ya, yet?
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?
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.

Day 198 - Oct 1st Is it bad parenting to give little ones an iPad to keep them quiet for a while?

Day 197 - Sep 30th We had made no hard or fast plans for Saturday, and although the wife often likes the odd quiet weekend at home, I like to feel like I have done something with my weekend, and today was a day where we certainly ended up doing more than we expected. I… Continue reading Day 197 – With a little help from my friends
Day 192 - Sep 25th My brain is literally just taking up space today. When someone asks me a question, I am hearing dial-up internet tones before my brain starts retrieving information at dial-up speed and getting an answer back to you around five minutes later... and possibly a wrong or incoherent answer at that!… Continue reading Day 192 – Can you speak slowly please
Day 190 - Sep 23rd The weeks can all tend to fly by so fast, and sometimes its good to slow down and take it easy. Saturday was a day that we did not want to do a great deal, with the only exception being our visit to the local fire station open day. The… Continue reading Day 190 – Just take it easy
Day 181 - Sep 14th When your previous evening hasn't gone to plan and you start the next day still feeling grumpy about it you have to give some consideration to the fact that most of your problems are generally going to be trivial ones that you just need to let go of, and it's… Continue reading Day 181 – Tomorrow is a new day
