Womanual labour

Thursday 2nd August 2018, 4.45pm (day 2,534)

Clare does hedge, 2/8/18

Clare proves she is the person around the house to ask when anything resembling manual labour is required. Cooking? That’s usually me.

Quite like the focus and depth of field on this shot, better than usual but achieved by doing nothing more than having a camera with a better lens, as of Tuesday morning. This is the first shot where there is a noticeable difference.

19th wedding anniversary (with swollen ankle)

Monday 2nd July 2018, 8.30am (day 2,503)

Clare with swollen ankle, 2/7/18

On the way back from Bricktastic yesterday Clare made what I’m sure she will agree was a rather poor attempt at negotiating a particular kerb in Manchester, and as a result spent the day in this position, more-or-less. I did my best to nurse. I’m not very good at it (my sister got the nursing allocation in my family, believe me) but today was our 19th wedding anniversary, so I owe more than a few by now.

Clare, late (or early)

Saturday 23rd June 2018, 3.05am (day 2,494)

Clare, late night, 23/6/18

Saturday morning…. but still Friday night, in practical terms. Clare makes her way back from the party through the streets of Walthamstow. Two notable things about this picture, if we’re being statistically geeky about it: the first time London has made it onto this blog five days in a row; and the latest ‘true night’ shot, in other words, the end of an evening out, beating the previous record holder by five minutes.

Clare, cinema steps (red)

Sunday 18th March 2018, 9.50pm (day 2,397)

Clare, cinema, red, 18/3/18

The film we saw took ninety minutes out of my life that I’m never getting back, but at least the exit provided an opportunity for a picture that doesn’t depict more snow (though the weather does explain the yellow warning sign, because of course we need telling that winter may have made the steps wet). This aside, the red of the coat and of the old ticket booth in the background make a pleasing contrast.

Joe does the cooking

Thursday 1st March 2018, 8.25pm (day 2,380)

Clare and Joe cook, 1/3/18

Off school thanks to the continuing dreadful weather, Joe recreates his cancelled Food Tech class for our dinner tonight. Clare helps by holding the pan but otherwise the meal was his.

I like this pic: I like the various minuscule little details about our kitchen that you guys normally never see. The penguin calendar. The levitating compost bin. The mysterious letter ‘S’.

Picture House steps

Saturday 13th January 2018, 4.30pm (day 2,333)

Cinema steps, 13/1/18

Clare digs into her purse to find evidence of the various discounts she is entitled to at the Hebden Bridge Picture House. And the movie? As you can see by looking closely at the board behind, it was the very brilliant Monty Python’s Life of Brian, as funny a 90 minutes as was ever shown on a cinema screen. There are many worse ways to spend a late Saturday afternoon.

Clare in her new room

Saturday 28th October 2017, 3.10pm (day 2,256)

Clare in treatment room, 28/10/17

Seeing as I didn’t manage to put one of the wife up for her birthday on Thursday here is one to compensate. Clare inspects her new treatment room down in town, let’s wish her luck for a successful venture…

Lunch (jigsaw) break

Thursday 1st June 2017, 1.40pm (day 2,107)

Jigsaw break, 1/6/17

Exciting times in the household as the jigsaw map of Brighton that was a Christmas present is finally finished five months later. With all three of us present to witness this stellar event, you can tell it’s the half-term holiday. Life doesn’t get more uneventful than this.

Clare in the White Lion

Sunday 30th April 2017, 5.35pm (day 2,075)

Clare, White Lion, 30/4/17

The wife…. and a small square thing in the wall. Looking good after a day working at the Hebden Bridge burlesque festival which is in town this weekend. Well, she’s looking good, not sure about the small square thing.

Reconnecting with the family

Saturday 21st January 2017, 3.40pm (day 1,976)

Clare & Joe, Railway, 21/1/17

It’s nice to travel, but it’s also nice to come home. So the family can feature on the blog for the first time for a while (as a duo, anyway). Not much is going to happen in the next few days, and it doesn’t look like we can expect the sun out, so I foresee more of this kind of thing.
