Long day. Drove to Birmingham and back, spending a grand total of three hours there looking around the Christmas markets and having a sort-of-job-interview, then made it back to Cardiff to photograph a bilingual Christmas carol service (meaning I didn’t understand half of it).
My highlight of today was finding frozen soya beans in a shop in Cardiff for the first time in about four months, and that pretty much sums up the kind of day it’s been.
Skin lightening advertising from across the world. No matter where you go, lightness is a hot commodity.
I can’t put it in words, so I thought I’d share some photos I took when visiting our local SPCA a few weeks ago. Please adopt. These dogs didn’t do anything wrong and don’t deserve being abandoned. Don’t put them through this. Please read this article below, and think in your heart that these dogs you see here may have been put down already.
These are heartbreaking, and so similar to what I encountered on work experience at a local newspaper in January, when I had an assignment to photograph dogs in the post-Christmas rush in the local dogs home. I would have taken several home with me had I been able to! :-(
I got home this evening to the sad news that the frontman of this brilliant and underrated band died last week. Horrible news, and I’m gutted I never got to see them. :-(
I think if dudebros are gonna compare period pain to Kicked in The Balls pain they’re gonna have to follow that same, societally ingrained shaming code that ladies do.
No don’t talk about how much your balls hurt that’s gross.
Stop whining it doesn’t hurt that bad.
You’re really emotional, did you get kicked in the balls?
Don’t even listen to him he just got kicked in the balls.
Avocado Mac and Cheese Recipe
I made this today and 1) it was super simple and I was eating it 20 minutes after getting into the house and 2) it was DELICIOUS.
I’d been craving avocado big time for a couple of days, and found them reduced in the shop earlier so grabbed one.
Altered it a bit to fit what I had in the kitchen:
Skipped the lime part, but added some ginger and lemon cordial which worked well.
Skipped the coriander too.
Added some smoked paprika.
Oh and I used smoked cheddar for the cheese sauce and OH MY GOD I love that cheese so much.
Definitely recommend this. Now I want more.
I halved the recipe to make “2-3 servings”, and ate it all in one go. I was starving though. It was just that good.

Tonight was my 61st, and probably my final gig of 2013.
Wet Wet Wet, supported by Blue. What a way to end the live music year!

December in Tromsø: 2PM [x]
(I’m getting quite a lot of hits this last week or so because a post from a while ago has kind of exploded. People click through, expecting pretty photos etc, and are met with posts like that last one.)
