Bank Holiday Monday and it’s not raining. Hurrah!
We took Ruby to Wollaton Hall for a little trundle around today. We should come here more often – there are deer, ducks, swans and a nice lake. You can get some reasonably priced refreshments in the café and there’s a museum and gallery too.
Someone had pitched a huge inflatable slide on one of the many grassy areas but we figured that Ruby was a little young to be put in peril by her parents on such a thing
Ah, what is more British than enjoying a sunny day in the park while listening to a brass band?
Our band played for a couple of hours at the Nottingham Arboretum today. It’s a lovely, little park near the centre of town and we had a nice audience listening to us too. We did some old stuff and some new stuff – something for everybody. I had to do my Fred Flintstone impression (embarrassing) and also a cornet trio.
Playing in a brass band isn’t the most glamorous or trendy thing to do but I do love it.

F is for BBQ. Well, it isn’t but this is what we did today.
Friends of ours were having a BBQ so we headed over there for free food and booze. The weather was awful but the food was good.
There were many babies and they had this rather nice set of floor tiles for them to sit on. Ruby liked to pull them up and stick them in her mouth. Everything goes in her mouth
Sunny today, rain tomorrow. I prefer the former
I used to do a self-portrait 365 project and I haven’t got so many selfies in this 365 set, so here’s one taken in the back of Steve’s car on the way home
These early morning starts are a pain in the arse but at least I can catch the effects of the early morning sun coming in through our roof windows.
I’ve taken quite a few photos of this roof. It’d be a shame not to – it’s such an interesting structure and has given me quite a bit of inspiration
We followed this car (at a distance) down the A52 on the way home today. I’m not sure what has happened but it seems that he’s trying to get to a garage without paying for a tow truck to come and pick up his ruined car.
He should have put it in the truck in front…
A horribly grainy photo for today – didn’t take much of anything else. Must try harder
Ruby is changing so fast at the moment. She’s getting noisier and noisier and has become ticklish all of a sudden. She never used to be but she’s prone to fits of giggles when we tickle her now.
She’s still not rolling, crawling or shuffling but will stand up if helped. I suspect she’ll just get up and start walking one day, but who knows what she’ll do next?
Well, this will not do. This will not do at all.
I’ve completely forgotten to take any photos on Sunday. Not even a shitty one of grass or the back of someone’s head. My uninterrupted 365 project has now been interrupted and I’m a bit sad about that.
