Paperless advert calendar

I was sent this link through the diocese yesterday and as the first window got me thinking I thought it was worth sending on to others.

Come on the gooners

Originally uploaded by SimonKirby.

Thanks to the kindness of some friends I got to take the boys to see Arsenal v Wigan on Saturday. It was a great occasion it was our first trip to the stadium and it is magnificent, the atmosphere great and while it wasn't the best performance of Arsenal's season, they don't do bad football. While they took a while to come two goals towards the end were the icing on the cake!

There is much excitement in the house..

I've just had one of those phonecalls that changes the direction of the offer of 3 tickets for this afternoon's Arsenal game. This will be the first time the boys and I visit the Emirates stadium to hopefully watch a convincing victory over Wigan. Unfortunately 6 first team players including the inspirational Fabregas are not playing...still come on the gooners!

The Big Four-0

Well I made it and it was a great weekend of celebration. I loved catching up with old friends although I was a little concerned by how many of my former youth group now have kids..suppose that's a hazard of aging. One of the highlights without doubt was the newest boyband in North London doing a Snow Patrol cover version - check them out below they do warm up!

There's a few photos on my flickr site here. Apparently life now begins so here we go...

Here He Comes

Here He Comes

Spent bank holiday weekend destroying an air raid shelter in our garden. It was designed to be bombproof and put up a great fight. We had some good father son bonding times with sledge hammers and pick axes. We also made a new friend in as a robin enjoyed the rich pickings we were unearthing. He became increasingly tame over the weekend to the point where he took food from our hands you can see him flying in from the right if you look carefully.

The Marathon

We spent a great day at the Marathon on Sunday. We were part of a cheering team for Help the Hospices, situated on the Victoria Embankment opposite the Millennium Wheel. Dan from church was running and we were watching out for him while cheering for any one running for Help the Hospice, as well as anyone else as they went past. We were at the 25 mile mark so we saw some pretty knackered runners but it was incredible seeing the endurance of people and particularly the nutters in the fun runner suits. (It can't have been much fun after 25 miles). My
appetite has been wheted and I'm thinking I might have to give it a go next year. In the meantime I took a fair few photos some below and more on my flickr site.
