Frida keeps me company

Thursday 16th February 2023, 8.30pm (day 4,193)

Frida Kahlo, 16/2/23

This week Clare has also been away, and remains there until the weekend. Back home I did nothing other than work at home and was close to having to put up something lousy on here, until later on, I looked over to the wife’s empty side of the bed and saw Frida Kahlo looking at me. Well, sort of.

Christmas card session (still in bed)

Sunday 11th December 2022, 9.40am (day 4,126)

Xmas card session, 11/12/22

There won’t be much excitement or variety in my life in the run-up to Christmas — but nor do I really care about this. In the undertaking of her annual task (for which I internally thank her) of sorting out our Christmas cards, Clare makes another step towards catching up Joe in the ‘all-time appearance record’ on this blog; this is her 140th pic, with Joe presently on 146. Another shot with daringly off-vertical verticals, but then again I was still in bed too.

Gratuitous bath shot

Saturday 26th November 2022, 7.55pm (day 4,111)

Clare in bath, 26/11/22

This blog isn’t here for advertising purposes but I can’t avoid a free plug for the magnificent Eagle Mill B & B in St Ives, Cambridgeshire. Everything about it was fine, but having a bath placed on a pedastal, open to the rest of the bedroom, was the crowning touch. Excuse, therefore, the gratuitous bath shot, but why not?

Mosquito net (but no mosquitoes)

Wednesday 17th November 2021, 8.10am (day 3,737)

Mosquito net, 17/11/21

The end of incarceration is in sight, although that’s just as well, as I’m really starting to get tired of this situation now. There is a mosquito net installed over my bed here, and I am using it, but I haven’t actually seen any mosquitoes — possibly there was one that drifted by, last week. Otherwise it’s purely cosmetic. And if you think that might be a metaphor for other things, well, help yourself.

Remnants of Joe

Tuesday 28th September 2021, 10.20am (day 3,687)

Behind Joe's door, 28/9/21

There remains a Joe-shaped hole in the house at the moment. But perhaps this shot, taken on a rare foray into his unoccupied room, is evidence that we didn’t pack him off to Dundee after all. Although decomposition has set in pretty fast, if that is indeed the case.

In my bedroom, evening

Monday 22nd August 2016, 6.45pm (day 1,824)

Bedroom smoke, 22/8/16

Spent part of the day in Manchester but there was little to be seen there. I prefer this enigmatic shot for today, which I feel not at all like explaining….

Bedroom door (best view of the day)

Monday 27th January 2013, 3.05pm (day 886)

Bedroom door, 27/1/14

Well, today was a photographic challenge — because since shortly after taking yesterday’s shot I have been feeling ill and spent almost the whole of today in bed. This burst of sunlight onto the back of the bedroom door is therefore the best you get today. You may yet get the same tomorrow. And why does the door have two handles? A legacy of when this was Joe’s room and he was still just a toddler.

The new laptop

Tuesday 13th March 2012, 3.40pm (day 201)

Clare and Joe and laptop, 13/3/12

Clare has been semi-bereaved lately by the slow death of her little netbook. It’s visible in the background, neglected and dying, because its shiny new replacement arrived today, and everyone at home was much happier. Kind of like when the puppy comes back from the vet’s.

As 200 days have now passed on this blog I have updated the Best of the Rest page with some more photos that didn’t quite make the ‘one a day’ cut.

Clare dressing for our night out

Saturday 22nd October 2011, 4.00pm (day 58)

Clare dressing, 22/10/11

It’s early in the day to be posting I know, but I don’t want to take the camera to the gig in Leeds, and do you think I’d get a better shot anyway?

Moscow tomorrow. I will try to keep up with the blog but might not be able to post daily for a few days. Rest assured I will catch up when I get back.
