Personal Blog

One more year.

I was born at 12:05am on the 7th February 1978, yes that makes me 39 years old today. Now you are probably thinking “How do I know the exact time I was born”. Let me tell you.

I was given an expected birth date of the 6th February (I still have my wristband that was put on me when I was born to prove it!) but I was late. The funniest thing about my birthday it that it is also my paternal grandmother’s birthday as well, so for years it has been a family joke that I waited 5 minutes to be born on this date, or I was 5 minutes late being born.

I have never been the biggest fan of birthdays, as I have always lived life trying to avoid as much fuss as possible and I never liked being in a crowd, so the more informal the better. The fact I am writing this blog is very out of character for me too. So I have decided to write a post on my blog every year to reflect on the last 12 months.

So I am now a year away from the birthday that most people dread, the big 40. They say life begins at 40, and that is exactly what I intend to do. I am going to be more adventurous, get out and wander more, get a new job (Yeah!), get out of that rut I have been stuck in for the last few years.  Lets enjoy the ride.


January Photo Challenge

I have looking for something to get me interested in photography again as I have lost my passion to go out and take photographs. I have over the last few months, had so many other things that have got in the way, that my photography has suffered and I have stopped taking photographs.

So over the last few weeks I have decided to take my Digital SLR everywhere with me in my backpack, so along with my iPhone, I will have  a camera with me at all times ready to shoot.
