#project365 #29

This was the view when I got in the car this morning – I bloody hate scraping the ice off the windscreen in the morning.

This summer I will definitely attempt to make some space in the garage to fit my little car in*, so that next winter I don’t have go through this palaver.

* I have said this every year for the past ten years.


Project365 #49

Often the 'photo of the day' is something pretty mundane, mainly because I had forgotten about it. Already this year we have had: me watching the TV; plates of food, sometimes even empty plates of food; and plenty of piles of marking. Today was different. Today Project365 was at the forefront of my mind. Today we had a choice:

1. After waking up pretty early I took a picture of the book I'm reading, that could easily have made Project365.

2. Popped into town for breakfast. It looked good. Took picture. That didn't make the blog.

3. I washed the car. That very rarely happens. Again, nope.

So what amazing event made day 49 of Project365 I hear you ask. What experience was important enough to be captured in a moment of digital splendour?

I sorted out the garage…

Next job: get the car in!



….general wonderings….

Already a few days into the final week of the Easter holidays and you will not be surprised to hear that I haven't touched one iota of schoolwork. In fact I've done everything except schoolwork. It is amazing how much you can get done to avoid marking:

  • Sorted out garage – there is still absolutely no chance whatsoever of getting a car in there – but at least now there's a path through all the crap to get to the back.
  • Mowed the grass – a couple of dry days and some sunshine resulted in the first cut of the year.
  • Fixed fence – windy conditions resulted in a snapped post. So after digging up most of Lincolnshire I managed to finally remove a huge lump of concrete that had been used to hold up post. I am now slightly worried I have also dug up a big percentage of the foundations.
  • Made a visit to the tip household recycling centre – gone are the days when you reversed up to a massive hole and slung in all your crap – now you need a PhD – old Hoover? Appliances or small electrical? I glanced at 'small electrical' and could only see old car radios, so plumbed for 'appliances' – WRONG! Two seconds after placing it down…. “That doesn't go there mate!”
  • Went to running club training Tuesday AND Thursday – which is something that happens very rarely. Tuesday was 20 x 1 min fast/slow and Thursday was a very fast 2 mile time trial.
  • Watched 'Inception' – good film – although I am not about to try to explain it – I'm not entirely sure myself – was it all a dream or not?
  • Read 'Pigeon English' by Stephen Kelman – this book has been on my reading list for a while – it follows a young immigrant from Ghana as he grows up on an estate in South London – good book.
  • Just started reading 'The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry' by Rachel Joyce – so far so good.

You'll also notice that this post severely lacking in pictures. This is because of the whole 'One Second Everyday' shenanigans. Although I have found a picture of a giant dog wearing a sombrero….



Project365 #260

Today’s picture is the tidy garage! It was one of the jobs I should have done over the summer hols. The plan was to make room for the car, so still a bit of work to do….


Project365 #249 – New machine…

The garage now has a new funky Costa Coffee machine!


Project365 #87 – Job for the hols…..

Today’s picture is the garage. Me thinks it needs a bit of a sort out.
Only went there this afternoon to get some nails, had to move the mower, tent and half a dozen boxes of ‘crap’ just to find the toolbox. I think ‘the sorting out of the garage’ has moved to the top of the ‘things that need doing in the holidays’ list.
