It’s the summer holidays. Glorious! The staff at the school had an end of year party, and on the way home from that I took this of the many contrasts the city throws at you in the dark.
I pass this every morning getting to work and I have always thought it’d be a good subject. I guess I have just been waiting for no cars and good lighting! It’s at an orthodontists, weirdly.
I have been a huge fan of Snow Patrol for years and when their new album came out this year after a 7 year wait, I was SO excited. So much so that I got it on pre-order and it came with this signed print of the cover!
We had a school trip to Stratford for this one. So pictured is Shakespeare’s Birthplace. Well, pictured is the view from the window. The graffiti is pretty old too!
I honestly don’t know the real name of this weed. It’s all over the countryside surrounding my city, and colloquially it’s Old Man’s Beard. Either way, another entry in the nature close-ups I have been doing!
Heading Gloucester-wards today. This was taken from the car, then brightened up a bit. If you look closely you can see some stuff reflected in the windscreen!
My mum’s 60th birthday was… a month ago, but the party was today. We all went out with family and friends to a teppanyaki restaurant in the city centre. And that means fire, showmanship, loud drumming etc.!
I was picking my partner up from university today and stepped out of the car to look through the building site gates towards Old Joe. This view, a few years ago, wouldn’t have been there as the old buildings have since been removed. It’s impressive now, and will be even more so when the park area is finished.
One of my colleagues had a leaving party at a local Thai restaurant. They do a very good G&T with strawberry and black pepper. I really liked the design on the glass as well.
Well I actually missed one again! But I have already done a little sad face to show one missed day, so this one I have taken a picture which I could have taken yesterday seeing as this rosemary has been on the chopping boards in the kitchen since then…
