How is it only Tuesday

How is it only Tuesday

I've been quite good with cycling in the morning the last two weeks. Been pushing myself pretty hard, and I go before breakfast so sometimes I push a bit too far and need to lie down for a minute


Intense Sunday

Intense Sunday

I like helping at the allotment. I'm much better in the morning when my energy levels are high


The cows in the meadow

I deviated from my route slightly to incorporate a hill I've never done before


Ducklings!

Ducklings!

The ducks have been busy making some food for the seagulls


Early morning dog-walking

Early morning dog-walking

Took Sudo on our slightly-longer-but-still-short route this morning. Feel bad for him not getting the walks he normally does but he just sleeps most of the day so I don't think he's miserable.


Lockdown cuisine

I've been enjoying taking photos of some of our more photogenic meals during lockdown. Or, at least, what passes for lockdown in this country.


Socialising in 2020

Dinner and pre-drinks, followed by a pub quiz.


A new backdrop

A new backdrop

I always have a problem taking photos of food in our house. We don't have any clean backdrops. Or at least I thought we didn't, but I was wrong.


I love GraphQL

I love GraphQL

I've been using GraphQL with Craft since I redeveloped this site, which is quite a while now. But running someone else's GraphQL API is like training wheels.


More scones!

More scones!

Charlotte requested scones again, but cheese scones this time. I went off piste and used pizza seasoning with tomato puree on top and they were so good


Scone!

Scone!

I haven't done any baking in a shameful amount of time. I am dreadful at parallel tasks, and obviously baking is all parallel tasks.


Sunday

The ferns at the office don't do well in this heat, so I combined my morning cycle with a plant-watering expedition


I hate going out

I hate going out

We got ants in the house and it was going to take a week for Amazon to deliver Nippon. Fortunately, our local hardware place stocks it.


Wednesday

Wednesday

I've been in a dreadful mood all day. Everything has irritated me in some way. I hate days like this.


Isolation: The Mug Challenge

Isolation: The Mug Challenge

I picked up playing badminton again early last year, and I've been massively enjoying it


Fixing things you don't understand

Fixing things you don't understand

I don't really get how any of this works. So far I've just been doing things and they've been working OK most of the time


Wordsearches and garden birbs

A pleasant Sunday.


Saturday

Saturday

Today I feel for anyone who doesn't have a garden. I can't imagine self-isolating without any safe outside space.


Pencil case: complete!

Pencil case: complete!

With this order from The Journal Shop, I think I'm done acquiring stationery. These scissors are insane.

Charlotte's been doing a brilliant job of giving Tabitha educational stuff to do
