2017: In Pictures


31 October 2017: New Bag
FINALLY I bought a new handbag, after about 47 repairs to the previous one.

30 October 2017: Alnwick Garden
There was a charity raffle over the weekend in the Travs and I won a free pass to The Alnwick Garden.

29 October 2017: Box
I spotted a box at my mam's house and couldn't resist seeing whether I could get in.

28 October 2017: Tulip
Nass and Sophie hosted Foundenton and we were treated to a set from Richard Tulip. It was a brilliant night and so good to see some familiar faces from the old Foundation days.

27 October 2017: Fishbowl Selfie
A Friday night fishbowl of divvy juice with Christy, Ali and Kay.

26 October 2017: Tipi
Hadrian's Tipi is back, this time in the derelict area.

25 October 2017: Bum Deal
I'm a badger fan but this is a new one on me.

24 October 2017: Souvenirs
As well as two hats I've also gained two new giraffes from York.

23 October 2017: Double Winner
My number 32 eventually came out as the bonus ball so I won 45 from the Grey Horse and 59 from work.

22 October 2017: Cheeseburger
Shannon just casually eating a cheeseburger in Superdrug.

21 October 2017: Hats
I took them to a hat shop and collectively we spent over 100. Oops!

20 October 2017: York Apartment
I arrived in York with Ali and Shannon for a fun weekend away.

19 October 2017: DX
I went to collect our DX mail this morning and I always find the place really creepy.

18 October 2017: Rotary Back Machine
It's ages since I used this and I fancied a change this morning.

17 October 2017: Disabled Parking
Morrisons have added extra disabled and parent/child parking bays but already some people are saying there are too many. As far as I'm concerned it's a good thing!

16 October 2017: Dust Cloud
The sky turned a weird colour today. At this point it was kind of greyish but as the afternoon went on it was sort of a red/orange colour. Apparently it was due to a storm blowing a dust cloud over, but it was surreal to have the place seem like darkness in the middle of the day.

15 October 2017: Canadians
The Canadians came to town so of course I suggested we take them to Colonel Porter's Rhum Emporium. This is Yvonne and John, both from England, with Nicole and Nate visiting from Canada.

14 October 2017: Savior
My new t-shirt is lyrics from the Rise Against song 'Savior'.

13 October 2017: Sausage Visitor
On my train back from London I returned from the toilet to find a sausage dog under my seat!

12 October 2017: Josh Pyke
After 10 years of being a fan I finally got to see Josh Pyke live. The gig was at Bush Hall in London which was a cool little venue and the performance was well worth the trip.

11 October 2017: Train Tickets
Months after booking them, I finally got round to collecting the train tickets for my upcoming trips to London and York.

10 October 2017: Jerry's New Hat
Caroline provided Jerry with a new winter hat.

9 October 2017: Mary Higgins Clark
I got this finished off today. I wouldn't really say it got under my skin, but it passed time on the commute.

8 October 2017: Hometime
I'd forgotten to take a photo today, so you get a toilet selfie, which was my last moment of effort before heading home for food and to chill out before work tomorrow. I didn't mean for it to come out square!

7 October 2017: Tom's Birthday
I went with Tom, Andy, Mick, Alan and Wendy to the Three Mile to celebrate Tom's birthday.

6 October 2017: Sky Colour
It's not a great photo but I loved the colour of the sky this morning.

5 October 2017: Leaves
It's definitely autumn.

4 October 2017: Half a Building
This building looks all forlorn since it's half demolished.

3 October 2017: Carl & Ali
Drinks after a meal at Amicis with me and Michael, our cousin Claire and her boyfriend Keith.

2 October 2017: Lidl Blur
I went to our new Lidl for the first time for this week's shopping.

1 October 2017: Lockwood Cup
It's that time of year again! The Blue team was victorious, beating the Reds 16-8 while I watched and refereed from the balcony.
