Garden produce

Monday 25th August 2014, 1.05pm (day 1,096)

Garden produce, 25/8/14

Always nice when the garden starts paying off to some extent. Plums, apples, potatoes, picked up at the allotment on this drizzly late August afternoon.

It’s my birthday tomorrow, which means two things, first that the title of this blog is going to be three years out of date, and therefore, that I have managed to document three full years of my life as of today. Exactly one-fifteenth of it in fact. It’s another point when I might have considered stopping, but there are enough things coming up that will be interesting to document so I’m not bored enough yet. See you tomorrow.

Carp, 24/8/14

One day short of three years doing this blog and there’s still some scope for novelty — pretty sure that yesterday’s cover stars were the first cattle to feature and here’s the first fish. It and its fellows live in the garden of my friend Doug, in Wetherby (where we were a year ago today, too).

Tree and gate

Tree and gate, 22/8/14

Maybe it would be a better shot if it was just the tree, or just the gate. But it’s what it is. Last day of a week spent mostly at home.

Bin day

Thursday 21st August 2014, 8.50am (day 1,092)

Bins and sofa, 21/8/14

Thursday on Keighley Road is when the bin men come. Our neighbour was feeling ambitious this time round.

This is a rare ‘photowhack’: the one and only photo I took on a given day. That’s how exciting 21/8/14 really was.

Under the tables

Under the table, 20/8/14

The hardest thing about keeping this blog going on a daily basis is carrying on finding inspiration on days like this, spent working at home. It’s easy when I’m on the road. This week I was supposed to be going to Sweden again, but it’s been cancelled due to a colleague’s illness. So in the absence of that kind of thing, here’s another picture of the tables outside the pub on a nice sunny evening.

The Hebden Water

Tuesday 19th August 2014, 8.15am (day 1,090)

Hebden Water, 19/8/14

Tempting as it is to simply stick up a picture of the scoreboard that concluded tonight’s football match at Elland Road (Leeds Utd 0, Brighton & Hove Albion 2 – yes!)… this is the best non-partisan shot I got today. A beautiful morning in town.

Scaffolding, Oxford Road

Monday 18th August 2014, 1.55pm (day 1,089)

Scaffolding, 18/8/14

Not very exciting I know, but then there’s not much outwardly going on at the moment on campus — though seeing as the A-level results are out, probably rather more behind the scenes. There is a sort of underlying green-ness to this shot that I quite like, however.

Nearly missed it…

Sunday 17th August 2014, 2.35pm (day 1,088)

Running for train, 17/8/14

… but this family did make their connection in Leeds. As did Clare and I on our way home from London, after an excellent weekend all round.

Blackberries and barbed wire

Tuesday 12th August 2014, 4.15pm (day 1,083)

Blackberries, 12/8/14

Ah, free food. Come to daddy.

They’re early this year but then again so has everything been, since February. And who needs barbed wire when you have a stand of brambles to protect your property.

Victoria Station’s new roof

Monday 11th August 2014, 4.25pm (day 1,082)

Victoria's new roof, 11/8/14

Into Manchester for the first time in a few weeks. Victoria station’s redevelopment proceeds onwards: this is taken from platform 1, looking back towards the old building (listed, so they have to preserve it in the rebuild) and the new roof. It’s good to see.
