No New Year’s Eve related blip – instead here is a pomegranate. haven’t had one for years, and was surprised at how much like an alien murder scene it looked when I cut one open.
I would like to say the reason I blip so many ice hockey pics is because I’m capturing a photogenic subject. In truth it’s because I’ve done nothing else that day apart from go to the game, so it’s the only subject I have.
We beat a very poor Hull team 7-0 tonight, game was over in the first 8 minutes really. It’s nice to get a straightforward win, but it lacks the dramatic tension you get in the really close games.
Frosty day, some parts never make it into sunshine.

Not a very interesting photo, but this is the point where I passed 1000 miles running for the year. I was on target for about 1300 back in June, but it took a bit of a dip. Glad to have made the 1000 anyway as last year I fell short.
I spent much of the week leading up to Christmas dealing with some practical issues and nothing says Christmas like legal administration. So I approached it with a mild sense of foreboding, but actually we had a nice meal out Christmas day, my daughter loved her presents and the away trip yesterday was the perfect Boxing Day activity.
But I have sympathy with those who view the Christmas period in the same way a sailor thinks of a squally patch ahead. If you can get through it relatively unscathed, that’s a result. So, I’ve enjoyed it, but we can do away with the Christmas stuff now.
We went to our first away game today, up at Coventry. It was good fun, you get the hardcore fans at away games. We won 5-4, it was snowing, and I got lost coming home.
Boxing Day is usually such a nothing day, I had the idea of going to this game only at the start of the week, and it was definitely worthwhile. Maybe it’ll be our new Christmas tradition.
Cardiff Devils style – daughter and I both got new jersies for Christmas.
Took dogs for a walk up by the quarry today. May have had to slightly risk life for this photo. Practically a war zone photographer.
This is my Siamese fighting fish, he is the boss of the tank. We have named him Hendrikx after the hard man of the Cardiff Devils team.
Don’t tell anyone, but this is the ghost writer for the recent Battle for Open book
