Tabitha is Eleven


Not sure how this has happened but yep. Eleven. She played a badminton match and chose what she ate all day (so junk pretty much!)



We went to our favourite restaurant and Tabitha did some jumping



I helped a friend move house yesterday. It was a lot. Was looking forward to a relaxing day today, that didn't really end up being.

That London


Feeling a bit sick of going to Brighton and seeing and doing the same things so we went to London for the day.

Tabitha is Ten


We've been parents for a decade. It's surreal to think about how much has changed in that time. How much a person changes from 0-10, and 27-37; and how much stays the same.

Saturday in Eastbourne


We went for a little walk around Eastbourne. I like it there. There's a weird number of Greek restaurants in very close proximity. They slice their halloumi laterally like I like it.



I've been so busy with work since I got back from Nashville, and the weather sucked too much to go out taking pictures most days. Still I got a few snaps, even if they're pretty crummy, most of them.

Stars and Christmas Lights


Went to go and look at some local Christmas lights. Didn't really find any but did have a go at taking some photos of the stars since it was a clear night. Moderately happy with the results I guess?

Trick or Treat!


I've never been trick or treating before. It was quite fun.

Bluebell Railway


When I was a kid I loved steam trains. I think that's a fairly common thing. I've wanted to visit this railway for ages.

The cast is off!


Tabitha finally had her cast removed. The last 4 weeks have felt like such a long time, but have also gone very quickly. Probably not the case for Tabitha. Little video on here of the process of getting the cast cut off. Nothing terribly squeamish in there but if you have a mind that likes to wander about these things I would probably skip it! I like that they call them "wires" - they're more like tent pegs, but that would probably be a bit too scary.

Tabitha's broken her arm


Well, technically, fractured but it's functionally the same from our perspectives. This was one of the worst weeks of the last two years of my life.

Somerset 2022


This year I am taking more holiday. Like everyone, my life feels like it hasn't moved for two years, and over the past couple of months I've felt like it's significantly affecting my mood, and my overall attitude to my life. I feel totally uninspired by taking pictures, right now, and that is something that has always been able to lift me up.

Never Not Walking


It's becoming something of a routine, this walk into the city on a Saturday, and I don't mind it. This was hard work though. We were all exhausted by the end.



It's been another week of it. My back and hip and knee are getting better so slowly, it's depressing. I basically can't sit down, which is annoying. Made some good things, and had some ideas for some other nice things. And rage-bought a new watch because I'm an idiot. If you're looking for some consultancy work for your website/project strategy, help me finance my poor impulse control.

Jokes I don't have time for freelance.

The new iPhone is good


I got the iPhone 13 Pro. So far, most noticeable improvements are the screen and the camera. The animation is so smooth it's really starting to feel like the things on the screen are real physical things that you can touch. I don't have much to compare because I only use Apple stuff but I love their screens. Everything looks great on them. The stills from the camera are excellent as well. I feel like it's a noticeable improvement from the 12 Pro, which is the first time I've noticed that.

Little Keyboards Reviung41


I've wanted one of Little Keyboards' kits for ages, but they were always a bit spenny. This Reviung41 Comptroller case was actually pretty reasonable. Especially for the quality.

Bromsgrove Summer 2021


Going away anywhere is strange and makes me feel nervous pretty much constantly, but we managed to have a really nice few days away visiting family and friends for the first time in absolutely ages.

I'm not doing great


I haven't posted, or really taken any pictures since my last post, which was before my birthday, which was over a month ago. I'm just not into anything right now. I want to be but that's where my motivation ends.

Saturday Walk to Peacehaven


There's an episode of Mr Bean where he goes down a load of steps to a beach. That is quite near our house, and coincidentally a really nice walk.
