July – the month of my birth and my favourite month of the year. Though not because of the birthday. Personally, not a fan of birthdays. While I make every mental effort to think of them as any other day, I usually fail at that. So, it was nice that this year, my 30th was a nice, chilled and overall good day. Scary part of July done!
Why is July my favourite month? I adore summer. July for me equals summer. When it’s lovely and warm outside and you don’t have to wrap up going out. Days are long. Barbecues. Sitting in the park. Of course all of that has changed now that I’ve moved to Bahrain!
As for the rest of the month – it’s been fairly quiet. Except for the whole looking for a new place to live followed by the eventual moving at the end of the month. Continue reading Project 365: 2014 – July
Just like that, June is over. I think you can call me settled in my new home. Definitely settled. Got my daily routine going. Even managing to inject some exercise in every day.
What was I up to in June? Well, there were a couple of trips to the cinema to see X-Men: Days of Future Past and How to Train Your Dragon 2. By the looks of my photos, I did a lot of eating. Caught the dreaded lurgy from the OH. Started and am now steam rolling through a rewatch of Battlestar Galactica. Well, rewatch for me, but first time watch for the OH. Which is the sole reason of the rewatch! Continue reading Project 365: 2014 – June
Can you believe we’re, pretty much, half way through 2014 already? Unbelievable. The year has flown by. Despite the laws of physics telling me that no such thing can actually happen.
Thought it was a good time to stop and take a look back at my 365 project so far this year. Continue reading Project 365: 2014 – The half way mark
April was a terrible month. Terrible in the sense that out of the 30 days there are in the month, I only managed to take 24 days of photos. SHAME!
Not all that exciting though. Did go to the countryside to visit Ken the curmudgeon. But the rest of the month was just of the day-to-day variety.
One other exciting thing was my an update to my phone’s camera app. So now everything will have lens blur. Apologies. Continue reading Project 365: 2014 – April
March started off fantastically. Nearly two weeks out of the country, on holiday. First, a few days in India for a fantastic wedding. Followed by a few days in Bahrain with the OH. The rest of March really couldn’t compare.
Day 59 Room w/a view.
Day 60 Wedding festivities are well underway.
Day 61 The happy day!
Day 62 And it all went far too quickly. Already the last night :(
Day 63 After a few busy, eventful days, it’s nice to be home with a cup of coffee and some dark chocolate Hobnobs.
Day 64 Breakfast at Saffron. My favourite.
Day 65 Friday evening mayhem at the Souk in Bahrain.
Day 66 Eventful day leads to us looking around at potential car replacements. (We had a bit of a prang!) This is just an unrealistic pipe dream, but … we’re allowed those.
Day 67 Last day in Bahrain, but it was perfect. Go-karting!
Day 68 On my way back to England. Big ol’ sadface.
Day 69 And all of a sudden, it’s back to the day-to-day routine. The holiday feels like such a long time ago.
Day 70 It appears, since I’ve been away, Spring has arrived in England.
Day 71 Lunch and a wander.
Day 72 I’m usually pretty good with the unpacking. Not this time. 1 week later and I’ve finally knuckled down and unpacked.
Day 73 Lunch and a stroll in Windsor. Could get used to this Spring malarkey weather.
Day 74 Really very pretty sky in the evening.
Day 75 Just out at lunch.
Day 78 The view from the office fire escape…
Day 80 Cook something you’ve never cooked with before, he said. So I did. Cavalo nero being that thing I’ve never cooked with before. And funnily enough, here’s a minestrone soup – something i’ve never cooked before either!
Day 81 All of a sudden, there was Yoshi.
Day 82 A little bit of spring colour.
Day 83 Ahh… suburbia!
Day 84 Enjoying a bit of old man Port.
Day 85 Dear Chucks, why do you hate me so?
Day 86 Time thievery occurring!
Day 87 What can I say? I forgot.
Fairly pleased with my first 3 months of Project 365. Though, definitely skipped more days in March. It couldn’t be helped. Well, no it could. I’m just making excuses.
