347/365 Cannoli by rutty is licensed under CC BY-NC-SA I have today off work for childcare reasons. Ruby’s school has already broken off for Christmas (!) and apparently it is considered poor parenting to leave your children alone at home while you go to work.

"196/365 Beach?" by rutty is licensed under CC BY-NC-SA We are getting a 'beach' in Beeston for the summer! It will be on the site of the old bus station, somewhere amongst this sea of decking. There's going to be lots of rides and should be great for the kids over the summer holidays.

"148/365 Don't mention the Boer War" by rutty is licensed under CC BY-NC-SA I've taken photos of this magnificent memorial before, but the slightly grim weather today suggested another should be on the cards. I love this gorgeous old lady - long may she remain in Broadgate Park.
