2017 in pictures

Venla is officially given a name at her naming ceremony.

It was a good year for running including 24 minutes of my time at the Leeds Half Marathon and a sub-50 Abbey Dash.

West Yorkshire Humanists celebrates it’s 50th anniversary.

Riitta visits her granddaughter (and us, of course).

The family comes together to celebrate my Gran’s 90th birthday.

Hugh & Anna get married.

That awkward moment when you release your new baby carrier perfectly matches your t-shirt.

This is why we can’t have nice things in Leeds

I carry around two bike locks so that I can secure my frame and both of my wheels. But how are you supposed to defend your handlebars or your saddle?

Night photography course

Earlier this month, I went on a night photography course around Leeds.

I didn’t really learn anything because I knew all the techniques, but having an experienced photography tutor there to remind you all the stuff you have forgotten and who has an eye for the perfect angle, is invaluable in getting great shots. And it was a lot of fun.

Ice cream helper

I tried to order three scoops of ice cream at Kaspas. Instead, they brought me three separate ice creams. It was very lucky that my ice cream helper was on hand to get the job finished.

Panini at Leeds Beckett

Today we continue my series on people who cannot spell panini.

This shop I found in May, for example. They have at least worked out that there should not be an apostrophe there.

Leeds Beckett has not, however.

Even if the word panini was the singular form, why would you add an apostrophe there?

After Hugh & Anna’s wedding, I noticed the Shustoke Reservoir was a convenient distance from Coleshill for a Sunday morning run. THe route round has a little variety: there is a wooden section before taking in the banks for the remaining three sides.

Venla at nine months

It is safe to say that Venla is now more dangerous than ever. She can shuffle. And she is quickly perfecting the art of speed shuffling: every day it gets faster. Which means she can get to draws, and pans, and balconies.

Time for shopping.
