Photography Project 365, Week 21

This year I'm attempting Project 365, taking a photo a day every day 365 days of a year.

Week 21

Today was the day that we found The Teen's prom dress. Hurrah. A prom dress that is entirely a different length, style and colour to the prom dress she went looking for, but the perfect prom dress for her nevertheless, but it is, of course, a great big secret until the big day and so you have to make do with the stunning rainbows that greeted our arrival home from the shops.

Photography Project 365, Week 20

This year I'm attempting Project 365, taking a photo (or two) a day every day, 365 days of the year.

Week 19

GCSEs 2017

This week is the start of the Teen's GCSEs - a whole month, broken by a week of half term, of exams. Luckily, I get her exam nerves and The Teen, who sat her first three GCSEs last year, is calm tranquility herself so I think we'll get through it, though I'll be keeping my fingers crossed for the foreseeable future.

Why I'm Voting Labour

Well, why would I not vote for this Labour party?

According to the Labour manifesto, the majority of Labour's policies are policies that I believe in. Their election promises, ones that I want to be kept. I want a political party that works 'For the Many, Not the Few.'

I want to see an end to Tory austerity; to the selling off of the NHS, to the shutting down of local services, the erosion of worker's rights, and what amounts to little more than the persecution of the sick, the poor and the needy in our society.

I don't want 80 ill people dying each week because they've been declared fit for work. I don't want our nurses having to feed their families from food banks. I don't want fracking, and I don't want fox hunting. Then again who would?

Week 19

SATS message from teacher

This week has been all about the dreaded SATS but The Boy's teacher set some excellent homework for over the weekend. By Sunday night he's ticked off every single one and had a whale of a time doing it too. It's possibly the first homework that he's completed with enthusiasm during his entire time at school.

Review: JW Anderson Curates Disobedient Bodies at The Hepworth, Wakefield.

It's taken a while for me to get to The Hepworth's latest exhibition, a collaboration with fashion designer Jonathan Anderson that has been running since March, but finally last week the planets aligned just long enough to give me a free afternoon so I went and spent it looking at 'Disobedient Bodies.'
