I haven’t got a stronger photo today Just one of those days I guess. I can’t even think of what I might of taken had I been mindful of my day. It was Store Forum today which I loathe, I would have a clause in my contract if I could to excuse me from the process. It has a really good place in the culture of the store and I can definitely see the benefits, but I just find it hard to deal with issues on a formal basis taking 2 hours rather than sorting things out informally. Fortunately we have fostered a culture that we deal with things informally so not much ever comes up that we don’t know about or aren’t already dealing with, but I guess I feel apprehensive about what might come up. So I guess I feel stronger for it being over!
Borqna asked for photos of the minibook that caused my desk to look a dive yesterday, and I couldn’t say no to that could I?
Ali and I took a trip to our park in June, we needed some fresh air and as the sun came out in a rare June appearance we popped out. It is called Bicclescombe Park and is about a ten minute walk from us. I used to play tennis here all summer when I was 14 and 15, and I might have fallen in love with a boy that second summer whilst we played
We played Pooh Sticks, we had an explore through the trees and wilder areas and Ali tried to climb a tree. Lovely. There is a lovely play park in there as well, but he forgot about it and after 20 rounds of Pooh Sticks, I was pretty glad about not having a lengthy session on the swings as well!
My favourite photo of him, yes I did share it on that day as well ;
The front cover.
Apologies for not having a new photo, rubbish. I am quite disgruntled
