Happy to have made it

Friday 6th March 2020, 7.40pm (day 3,116)

MA ELIP launch party, 6/3/20

I don’t normally depict work colleagues on here but it’s worth making an exception today. For three years at least I’ve been working on getting a new hybrid (mixture of online and on-campus) MA launched (in Educational Leadership), and over this weekend we are finally welcoming our first batch of students. Here are some of them, along with Paul, Bee and Steve, fellow academics, looking happy about this at the meal we organised to mark the occasion. And I am glad too, it’s always a relief to see something come to fruition. There’ll be more of this on Sunday, a working day this weekend (a price to be paid)…

Sunday buffet, Halifax, 20/10/19

It’s always nice to eat out on a Sunday lunchtime. Wherever you may be.

In the restaurant (serving spoons)

Tuesday 12th February 2019, 7.30pm (day 2,728)

Indian restaurant, 12/2/19

Another ‘fiery’ shot but this time at the end of the day, and an interior, rather than the morning light. An evening out for Valentine’s, a couple of days in advance. The spoons were serving the starter, and very nice it was too (as was the rest of the meal).

Glass in restaurant

Friday 7th August 2015, 7.40pm (day 1,443)

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.

In the vault

Monday 15th June 2015, 6.30pm (day 1,390)

In the vault, 15/6/15

Amazingly we managed to get money off the university this year to have an end-of-year dinner. Why this particular stone started shedding blood for the first time in my 10 years there, I have no idea. Dan (left, student) and Gary (right, colleague) wait to place our order in the highly distinctive surroundings of the old vault — check out those safety deposit boxes — in the former bank building which now houses Jamie’s Italian in Manchester (its second appearance on the blog, after this one 15 months ago).

Fred, Susan and Bodil in Jamie’s Italian, Manchester

Thursday 27th March 2014, 8.25pm (day 945)

Jamie's Italian, 27/3/14

Fourth of the promised five-in-a-row from Manchester, where I will spend about 90% of this waking week. Today was the first day of the two-day “Mapping Information Landscapes” research seminar I have spent several months getting organised and it was good to relax at the halfway point with dinner on the fundholder. Considering I spend a reasonable amount of my working life with these three people (in different ways), none have yet appeared on the blog, so welcome, all.

Joe, in the Italian restaurant

Friday 31st January 2014, 7.20pm (day 890)

Joe, restaurant, 31/1/14

It’s been a strange week, but it ended as many do, and certainly resembled the start of most of those weekends that come just after pay day — that is, we ate out. Here’s to the weekend.

Lunch at ‘Masala’

Tuesday 1st October 2013, 12.50pm (day 768)

Almeera, 1/10/13

Second, and last, day here at the Högeskolan i Borås, and a very nice lunch at this Indian restaurant with three colleagues, including Ameera, the centrepiece of this picture. It’s been a nice stay here in Sweden, but too short: I hope to be back one day however.

Flower bed, Italian restaurant

Friday 21st June 2013, 8.00pm (day 666)

Flower in restaurant, 21/6/13

Numerologically interesting day, possibly even apocryphal, or we could just see it as two-thirds of the way to 1,000 consecutive daily pictures. It’s Friday night and I never feel like cooking so went out for a pizza, and snapped this very well-coloured bloom while waiting for the Napoli to turn up.

Glebe Point Road, Sydney

Friday 8th March 2013, 1.00pm (day 561)

Glebe Point Road, 8/3/13

Lunch here today – and if you can’t find some variety of ethnic food to satisfy you on this street, well, you just ain’t trying.
