Where next?

So. That's 2010 over then. Here goes 2011.
No more daily photo blog, but I'm sure our paths will cross in cyberspace again.
Sincere good wishes for the new year and all that it may bring your way.

Early or late?

We got four Christmas cards in the post this morning. No doubt part of the backlog caused by the snow before Christmas.
It's hard to believe there's only one more picture to go.

Luxury

Thanks to the huge number of burst water pipes after the recent freeze, large areas of Northern Ireland have had their water supply turned off to allow the water utility to redistribute between reservoirs. Today we were without water for 12 hours but, as you can see, it's back. For now.

Victim of the freeze.

That key really shouldn't be able to fit into the top of the water heater :-(

Working off the turkey


I only shot video today. So to allow me to post a "photo" of the day I had to test my ingenuity. This a freeze frame, shot off the TV on my old N86.

What it's all about.


Do not be afraid. I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people.
Today in the town of David a Saviour has been born to you; he is Christ the Lord.
This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.

She ain't heavy, she's my sister

A little brotherly love is called for to help spread the reindeer food before bedtime.
Merry Christmas everyone!

A Christmas tradition

... it's not Terry's, it's MINE!

Secret Santa

Thankfully, they were allocated at random so I don't need to worry that I'm being sent a not-so-subtle message about my personal hygeine.

An oasis of lunchtime calm

One of the benefits of working in the city centre is the ability to take an hour out to attend one of the Ulster Orchestra's lunchtime recitals. They happen once every couple of months & only cost a fiver. Money well spent, in my book.

Carols by candle-light

Thanks for the invite, Elizabeth. I really enjoyed the service.

Murder mystery

It was quite good fun, until my character was framed for the murder by the actual murderer & a crooked cop.

Stand off

Students protesting against the education reforms blocked one of Belfast's main streets for a couple of hours this afternoon.

Up on the roof

of the car park. I was out today & when I came back the car park was full of Christmas shoppers. Had to park on level 13 - unlucky for some, especially when you have to climb all those stairs to retrieve the car at the end of the day.

The end of Movember

I have been donating my face to charity for the last month as part of a worldwide moustache growing event to help the prostate cancer charity.
There has been much banter & many nicknames suggested, but the important thing is the £125 I've raised so far.
Thank you to all who have contributed.

Another Christmas market favourite

Crisp wafers with a soft toffee centre. Perfect with a cup of coffee.

Tartiflette

The perfect winter food. Potatoes, onions, bacon, cream & cheese. I highly recommend it if you're visiting Belfast's Christmas Market.

Snowing

... well, technically it's actually hailstoning, but the result is still a pretty white blanket on the ground.

Nearly finished...

Belfast's Lyric Theatre is undergoing a complete rebuild. It's nearly complete now & the posters are going up to raise awareness.

Everything's relative

It's not every day your Mini is bigger than the car parked beside it.

Ready to go.

Today was Mandate, an annual Christian conference for men in Belfast. Mark Driscoll from Mars Hill Church in the US spoke & Paul Baloche led the worship. It was an awesome day, one of the best ever. I was part of the video crew & this is our mixing kit all set up in the booth at 8.30am ready to go.
