12 months on... London Olympics

Its been 12 months since London hosted the games of its life in the heart of the city. I had the pleasure of being able to attend this great event with family. We got to see the swimming event, and was better than i originally thought.

Here are some of the photos taken on the day.
Me and my Gem !

New personal record yesterday.

well i found that two things became momentous yesterday.

1. It is the 10 year anniversary of the togetherness of myself and my good lady. A little older but just as strong.

 As a true gent i had to get her the two thing in life that she loves..... Flowers and good food.

Braised Pork Belly to start things off

Coffee and a chocolate pot for desert. Yum

Gem and her apple and Cherry crumble (in a cup)

the worlds smallest cup of coffee

And the all important flowers.
2. I managed some how to attract a total of 457 unique page views yesterday. This is a new personal best big a big margin.

Lets hope things are looking up !!!

Have a good wekend all.

A trip to......WORK

Of all the places you shouldn't be thinking of taking photos is when a) your driving and b) you late for work.

I was both those things this morning and i still managed to get my camera out to document my commute (although short) to work.

This is the road that leads into our town, just at the bottom of the road (where the van is turning) is the old general hospital - where yours truly was born. You can see photos of that HERE

A little further down the road and we reach said hospital


A little farther down into the town and we have the old town college on the right, and now a brand new university being build on the left. Once complete the old college will be torn town.
