At the Amex stadium

Saturday 16th December 2017, 2.55pm (day 2,305)

Amex flag, 16/12/17

Welcome back to the Amex Stadium, Brighton, venue for several previous shots: all of which were preludes to victories by the mighty Brighton and Hove Albion. Today’s score versus Burnley: 0-0, so I lose my 100% win-only record there, but still, a point’s a point.

Oxford Road, the past

Friday 15th December 2017, 9.10am (day 2,304)

Oxford Road as past, 15/12/17

A bit of play in the processing. But what the hell, I feel like the country’s regressed a century or so. Last-but-one day in Manchester this year — with the state of the trains at the moment, that is no bad thing.

Joe inspects the cake

Thursday 14th December 2017, 8.45pm (day 2,303)

Joe and cake, 14/12/17

Among the subjects Joe is taking at school these days is cookery (aka ‘food technology’ or some other such euphemism). Every Thursday we are becoming used to him bringing home food that has always been more than just palatable. This ginger cake was lit with a candle as a proxy celebration for my Dad’s birthday (happy birthday Dad….). And very tasty it was.

A day indoors (thankfully)

Wednesday 13th December 2017, 12.25pm (day 2,302)

Mid-December, 13/12/17

That’s the Christmas tree (such as it is) in situ, but as yet undecorated. Outside it’s the kind of weather that makes one very glad this was scheduled as a day indoors. Even then I pulled a ten-hour day. It’s mid-December, for sure. May it pass quickly.

Duck, Lamorbey Park (last visit?)

Tuesday 12th December 2017, 3.05pm (day 2,301)

Lamorbey duck, 12/12/17

The first time I went to Rose Bruford College in Sidcup, Kent, was on 22nd May 2012. Over the subsequent five and a half years its campus, and Lamorbey Park, in which the grounds reside, has produced some decent nature photos, including fly agaric, a couple of rather cute swans, and a parakeet amongst others. But, sadly, today was probably my last visit; so here’s the last in the series.

Carol singers, at the station

Monday 11th December 2017, 5.25pm (day 2,300)

Carol singers, 11/12/17

Oooh — must be nearly Christmas. The carol singers are out. But it’s a nice way to raise money, in this case for the Railway Children charity (protecting street children in India, East Africa and the UK); and greeting us poor commuters as we stagger home on another freezing cold evening.

Bungalow town, in winter

Sunday 10th December 2017, 12.30pm (day 2,299)

Strickland Drive, 10/12/17

Clare and Joe walking back from a visit to Clare’s gran — who certainly lives in the kind of place toward which grans seem to gravitate. This is the epitome of seaside suburbia in early December. Whatever you think of this photo, I like it because it’s just the pic I wanted to take when I pressed the shutter. We can ask for little more.

Hamilton Academicals get ready

Saturday 9th December 2017, 3.00pm (day 2,298)

Hamilton players, 9/12/17

Another stop for Joe and I in our efforts to see lots of different football competitions in one season — today was our 13th, the Scottish Premier League. Hamilton Academical have a great name and I like their red-and-white hoops. I can identify the player on the left as their captain Xavier Tomas; not sure about the other two however, but let me off — we were not even supposed to be here today, having headed for a different game entirely which was postponed as we arrived in Glasgow, hence this emergency replacement, which made all my prior research irrelevant. Accies should have won, but their failure to put the ball in the net when given clear chances to do so meant they lost 1-0 to visiting St Johnstone.

Prefabs and posters

Friday 8th December 2017, 9.15am (day 2,297)

Prefabs and posters, 8/12/17Last day of a long week spent mostly (Monday aside) in Manchester. Was worried it was going to be a day too far but some good things happened and in the morning, at least, it was sunny. So here’s another picture of a building site. But a sunny one.

Chrissi’s workshop

Thursday 7th December 2017, 1.25pm (day 2,296)

Chrissi's workshop, 7/12/17

Chrissi came to teach us all about using board games in teaching — not that that is obvious from this shot, but what the hell, I still like it. It was an engaging session and I think this is captured here. And yes, the eagle-eyed may have spotted our Clare engaging in the back there.
