2021: In Pictures

2010 - 2011 - 2012 - 2013 - 2014 - 2015 - 2016 - 2017 - 2018 - 2019 - 2020

15 January 2021: 6 Mile Skid
I went for a 6.1 mile walk which was pretty slippy in places.

14 January 2021: Homemade Wedges
I made a tray of homemade wedges to go with tonight's tea. I was pretty pleased with how they came out.

13 January 2021: Holly's Stick
I met Ali for a walk and Holly insisted on carrying around this ridiculously large stick!

12 January 2021: Train
I hate the pedestrian level crossing so it was even worse to see a train just as I approached it. I don't think I ever move as quickly as when I'm darting across a train line!

11 January 2021: Max to the Max
After an Asda home delivery and Noirin's trip to Morrisons it's fair to say I'm well stocked with pepsi max for a while.

10 January 2021: Face to Face
I was asked to share at the Newburn AA meeting so it became my first "live" meeting since March! It was great to see people but I'll be sticking to Zoom again from now in order to stay safe. This is the Just for Today card which was the subject of my share.

9 January 2021: Frozen Lake
On today's walk I noticed that parts of Killingworth Lake were frozen over.

8 January 2021: Snowy Field
I went for an extremely slushy walk, resulting in my walking shoes being absolutely drenched. At least there were some nice snowy bits.

7 January 2021: Lighting Solution
We needed a lamp in the corner of the sitting room so I figured we may as well use this one now that we have a smart bulb in the bedroom.

6 January 2021: New Washing Machine
Our new washing machine was delivered and installed today and I absolutely love it.

5 January 2021: Tamagotchi
Furlough is getting really tedious now so Noirin provided me with some entertainment. I haven't seen a tamagotchi for years! And that's the story of how I ended up spending my day cleaning up elephant poo.

4 January 2021: New Chain
The chain that my giraffe pendant was on snapped a while ago and I kept forgetting to replace it, so Noirin surprised me with a new one.

3 January 2021: Moon in Hand
I used my new moon lamp to light the way to the bathroom.

2 January 2021: County Durham
First walk of the year! 5.35 miles around Hamsterley and Ebchester in County Durham. The views and snowy scenes were superb.

1 January 2021: Mam & Cat
I know Sally loves her "dad snuggles" with me but here's some proof that she loves her mam just as much.
