Moments of the month - November 2015
It’s always easy to see when I have spare time on my hands, as I end up doing something like this. Moments of the month - November 2015 Quite simply, a collection of photos taken during the month showing what I was up to.
The month started with a trip to Bluewater with the three girls, Charisma, Aaliyah and Brooke. Youtube sensation Tyler Oakley was doing a meet-and-greet book signing and I’d bought tickets after all three girls begged to go.
Three daughters, one chance to meet Tyler Oakley on tour - This is the immediate aftermath.
A few days later I was back up on the Wirral visiting Mrs DannyUK. Long distance relationships are hard, and seeing as each journey takes a minimum of four hours, the travelling is often boring though thankfully completely outweighed at the joy of seeing each other.
The step-kids were making biscuit-based bonfires. Mrs DannyUK was merely mucking around.
I made the mistake of mentioning that in the absence of pumpkins, Halloween could have been improvised with tangerines. This was news to Mrs DannyUK who then popped up with this a little while later.
I’ve blogged before about how to make the perfect French Martini. No idea what happened with this one. Some over-zealous shaking, perhaps. Mrs DannyUK tried to pass it off as a Heston Blumenthal-inspired deconstructed cocktail. She failed.
Thanks to a previous cock-up at Odeon, we had two free tickets to go and see Spectre. Decent film. Bit of an odd ending, though, if you ask me.
Made the mistake of buying a bag of chocolate and some popcorn at the cinema, and barely got change from a tenner.
A brisk walk along New Brighton promenade in the freezing weather with the two kids on their scootery-type things. This was the first day this Winter where it has felt reeeeeally cold.
Woohoo! Technology to play with! The bonus of being a blogger is the occasional receipt of something fun. Review coming soon.
After two months of having the Samsung Edge phone, I found out today that there were a few camera options to play with. Seeing as I was on the landing when I discovered this, the box of celebrations was the lucky focus point.
I have a cleaner who comes in once a fortnight to generally clean the flat properly. In other words, she does the bits that two blokes and four kids can’t seem to manage properly between them. I came home to a smiley face made of coins.
For the first time in months, the kids all agreed on something, and so we made a trip to Chiquitos for dinner. Amongst the milkshakes and floats that were ordered was this, Brooke’s mocktail. Yum!
… followed by dessert. This is my cheesecake.
Costa released their Christmas drinks towards the start of the month, and this is the Caramel Fudge Hot Chocolate which tastes absolutely amazing.
Early sunsets mean that I inevitably start taking more photos of buildings illuminated in the darkness. This was no exceptions. Holy Trinity Church in Stevenage, where I happened to park up when I went for coffee.
