Ducks (sort of)

Monday 4th December 2017, 10.30am (day 2,293)

Bathroom ducks, 4/12/17

The last two Mondays I have been on the 06:59 train into Manchester but fortunately this week could start in a much more gentle way, with a whole day working at home. But days like these don’t give out much in the way of photo opportunities. Hence the ducks. Of course, the one on the left is actually a seagull.

Ingredients: essence of trademark

Tuesday 1st March 2016, 8.40am (day 1,650)

Essence of trademark, 1/3/16

March began with foul, grey weather and I never left the house. This caught my eye in the morning; there are just so many things to admire…. The unexplained combinations, like “fruitliquid” and “waterjuice” (the latter with a trademark)… What is “yuzu”, whether frozen or not? And “pomelo essence”? What are EFAs? Why are these things necessary in life?

Bathroom window sill

Tuesday 19th November 2013, 11.15am (day 817)

Bathroom window, 19/11/13

A day working at home, which I haven’t done for a while. By this time in the year the morning sun is too low to get above the hillside behind, and the house will only see afternoon sunlight until February. There’s a reason all our living rooms are on one side of the building: the bathroom, like the kitchen, is on the dark side of the house.

Clare in the bathroom

Sunday 6th May 2012, 1.50pm (day 255)

Clare, bathroom, 6/5/12

The world outside struggles slowly into something that resembles spring. Meanwhile, in our house, an ordinary kind of Sunday; Clare in red corsetry reading a book in the bathroom, and wondering whether the blue ball in the bath is going to spring into life, like Rover in The Prisoner.
