Day 360 – Age Is Just A Number…

Our son works for that well-known Danish toy manufacturer, and for his birthday on Boxing Day each year uses bricks to signify how old he is… Today he was elsewhere, without access to his usual stash of bricks, so asked me to create it for him. I quite like the high/key mono look..

Day 291 – Still Going…

It was my wife’s birthday a week ago and I bought her flowers (of course). Normally, cut flowers only last a few days in our house as it’s pretty warm, but as you can see these are still going strong. It may cost more buying them from a florist rather than a supermarket, but they definitely last longer…

Day 286 – Let’s Celebrate…

It was my wife’s birthday yesterday, and as usual she received a fair few cards from friends and family. There does seem to be a bit of a theme to the cards – around half of them refer to either gin, wine or prosecco. They certainly know her!!!

Day 204 – Not A Birthday Cake…

It was our daughter’s birthday today and she asked if she could have ‘fruit’ instead of a cake… Well, no ordinary fruit would do so we made this watermelon ‘boat’- it was carved out and shaped, just as you would a pumpkin, and then filled with a selection of fresh fruit. Needless to say, she loved it!

Day 94 – Message In A Bottle…

Yesterday’s lunchtime visitors brought me a belated birthday present. Fair to say that most of my birthday gifts this year involved gin, and this was no exception – a monthly ‘subscription’ of different gins to try! I’m looking forward to future deliveries…
