It is Sunday morning again, how time flies! I shall let you into the darker, dustier pathways of my mind and share my thoughts with you. I can’t do anything right this morning, so I hope I can find something interesting to amuse you with. I photographed a charity event raising money for Sam’s Dream yesterday. It was dark and miserable again, but I got a few good photos inside the cafe. I have used a lot of photos of Sam so this time I’ll share a scary picture of his sister Lisa. She deserves a moment in the limelight in her Halloween make-up.
It’s Sunday morning and so once again I share my thoughts about my plans and life in general. The sun’s shining and so I intend to go out today and take photographs while there is less traffic. I think there might be narrowboats on the canal, they always make a good subject. (more…)
Yes, it’s Bank Holiday weekend again and the kids are off school for Whitsun. The Ikea sale will start on Monday and the stupid people will queue along the M6 for that. If you have to go to the Ikea sale; go next week, it runs until June 23rd.
The Aldi super-six this week are celery, cucumbers, lemons (3), spring onions, tomatoes (6) and garlic (4). They are all 49p each. They haven’t changed from last week, but their website has. There is a lot more on there.
Sometimes, I think as a society we take one step forward and two steps backwards. There are lots of experiments that seem to fail. The big pink box on West Bromwich High Street is still referred to as ‘iconic’, but in reality it’s a failed experiment. They intend to use it as a sixth form college now. (more…)
End of March 2012
We had a few things to talk about this week. The weather was unusually mild for the end of March. In England we usually have our heating on until the 1st of May and it’s not always warm enough in May to turn off the heating. My ‘death or glory’ investment in Premier Foods was doing well on Monday and Tuesday briefly touching 18p a share before dropping back to just over 16p. I bought at 4p and so I’m happy. They doubled in January and made more ground this week and I expect they will do well again before the year is out. You have to try to make a quid. (more…)
