Beer abstract

Beer abstract, 8/4/23

A week off work thus far, and, including today, three days still to come. Perhaps I could have made more of an effort today, but beer was certainly a constitutive part of Saturday 8th April 2023, so let’s celebrate it.

World seen through beer

Friday 2nd September 2022, 3.40pm (day 4,026)

World through beer, 2/9/22

An abstract, but appropriate metaphor for life today. The signature on the glass says John Smith but the product is different. And, no, it’s not all the same in the end.

Wasp in glass, 25/7/22

Perhaps, like this wasp, we are all trapped, aware of the world beyond the glass but frustratingly unable to reach it. But perhaps, again like this particular insect, there is a way out (undepicted here) at the bottom that we just haven’t found yet, we just need to change direction.

Refractions and reflections

Sunday 15th May 2022, 12.30pm (day 3,916)

Drinks on train, 15/5/22

How decadent, a glass of wine on a train on Sunday lunchtime. (And a bottle of water that may or may not originate from a spa town in North Yorkshire.) I like the refraction in the glass that is in turn reflected in my phone on the table.

Blue glass portrait

Clare in blue glass, 21/4/22

From Luddenden — setting for yesterday’s blue-sky picture — to London, which is rather bigger, but in which the weather continues to be very pleasant. The blues seen here come partly from the sky but also this glass, which was a vivid blue and caught the eye. Clare gets on, at least in part, for the second time in three days and soon will be surpassing Joe in terms of the number of blog appearances overall.

Friday evening, Dublin

Friday 31st May 2019, 5.50pm (day 2,836)

Dublin pub, 31/5/19

Friday evening, and Ireland goes to the pub. The inscription on the glass raised a smile.

Glass in restaurant

Glass, 7/8/15

Because this blog is just me documenting my life, one day at a time, as it comes, it is inevitable that the periods of activity and interest must subside. Little will happen over the next couple of weeks. Spent all morning doing the photos from the trip, then the afternoon unpacking, the evening reacquainting myself with the local pub and eating out. So this is as good as I could do today.

Lego lady gets desperate

Sunday 24th May 2015, 7.20pm (day 1,368)

Lego lady, 24/5/15

I could explain again the basis of Clare’s blog with her Lego lady…. but I’m not going to. Rest assured that I did take this shot, hence it fits with the rules of my own blog. Do I feel like this? That’s for me to know and you to find out.

A happy St. Patrick’s Day

Tuesday 17th March 2015, 6.15pm (day 1,300)

Guinness glass, 17/3/15

I do like a pint of Guinness anyway so I’m not succumbing to marketing. Well, maybe a little bit. A happy St. Paddy’s day to you. And a happy day 1,300 of the blog, too.
