2015: A year in pictures…


January: New year, new arrival…

January 2015

What better way to start the New Year than with a new nephew! Another “J” to add to the collection which means that I am now the proud uncle of five nephews and one niece, well on the way to making a football team when I add my three in…

February: Summit to be proud about…

February 2015

“Brace yourself, winter is coming”. Thankfully we never got much of a winter this year so the highest peak in Wales (Snowdon – the first location of my 3 Peaks / 24 Hour Challenge success in 2011)  was easy pickings, especially with my two boys egging me onwards and upwards…

March: Solar eclipse of the heart…

March 2015

As celestial events go, this is the nearest Liverpool may get to a full solar eclipse in my lifetime. Thankfully it was cloudy and allowed those that viewed our life giver a chance to glimpse and snap away without retina burn out…

April: New frontiers, New Quay…

April 2015

Who would have thought West Wales would be so amazing in Spring. A trip through the April fog revealed a hidden gem in New Quay, where ice creams, fish ‘n’ chips and dogfish fishing were the order of the day. Even managed to get a boss tan too…

May: Break a leg, Dave…

May 2015

Foo Fighters have been on my band bucket list for quite some time now and boy did they not disappoint. Team “B” turned up and rocked out in the rain at Lancashire County Cricket Ground, just in time as Dave Grohl went on to break his leg a few days later in Sweden. For all that he does and all that he contributes in terms of albums, projects and connections to the common man, there is none better in music today \m/…

June: Home by the sea…

June 2015

Our tour of the US of A took a year out and instead we spent twelve amazing day in Lagos, Portugal where sun, sea, SUP, sea-kayaking, swimming and snorkelling were the order of the day. The other letters of the alphabet never got a look in…

July: A rambling man…

July 2015

It may have taken a while to get to and from Maidstone, but me and my chums enjoyed an awesome weekend in the sun and rain of the Ramblin Man Festival. Highlights for me were the pictured Messenger, Marillion and Riverside. From what I can remember of the boozy weekend other bands played through the haze of the drizzle and my eyes…

August: Passing out, chilling out…

August 2015

A very proud moment of the year when the wife passed her Complementary Therapy NVQ Level Three, meaning that she was free to take up employment once again in a job she adores and helping to heal folks materialistically and non-materialistically. Her motto is “healing starts on the inside”, I love that…

September: Pink moon…

September 2015

The second major celestial event of the year saw a supermoon rise of the fair city of Liverpool, completing a yin-yang moment for all to see…

October: A padawan learner…

October 2015

My angelic daughter proved once again that she has what it takes to represent the views and wishes of her seven year old comrades by being elected School Councillor for the second year running. I’d like to think that my wife and I have acted as moral guardians for our children and awards like this do fill us with some personal pride too…

November: From master to masterclass…

November 2015

Although it’s only a start, my son was selected to take part in a master class for acting at Sir Paul McCartneys LIPA, and he is very excited about that as Woody Harleson gave a seminar to last years class. He has his sights set on a goal of achieving something very special on stage, seems to be a very common theme in this town…

December: Making the inanimate intimate…

December 2015

My good friend and incredible photographer “D” has finished his INTIMATE:INANIMATE project, which focused on individuals who have in their possession an object of personal or private significance. Each object has a special meaning or importance to the bearer and says something about the person behind it, something that relates to them as an individual. A truly awesome piece of art, all of which will soon to be displayed on the walls of Anglican Cathedral in Liverpool. Inspiring…
