Delph 2015: The Brighouse and Rastrick Band play ‘The Wizard’ from Richard Newman on Vimeo. There’s something magical about a great brass band playing a march, and there are not many greater brass bands than Brighouse.
Seven years ago I did an incredible thing. I married this wonderful woman. Seven years later I am still very much in awe of her, still very much in love. Jo’s capacity to love is wondrous to behold; I am a mere amateur in these ‘feelings’ stakes, being swept up in a wave of glorious […]
9th February 2015 Nottingham University has this prominent bust of Sir Jesse Boot, 1st Baron Trent, outside its gates at Highfield Park. Sir Jesse was one of the University’s most famous benefactors and one of the local area’s more memorable residents. Who hasn’t heard of Boot’s eh?
6th February 2015 Our beautiful daughter. I edited this in ‘Perfectly Clear’ on my iPhone, then processed in ‘Oggl’. She looks so grown up!
5th February 2015 The Beeston tramworks continue, and this junction with Middle Street remains closed south of Humber Road. It’s been over 14 months and local residents are beyond fed up. I’m actually looking forward to having a working tram system, but my patience with the repeated delays is getting thin

Plenty of software test history in this post. Thanks Bob! I’m going to share with our emerging Agile practice. Maybe some of it will sink in…
I’ve covered similar people problems during my systems thinking modules for my Open University degree. They called one of the issues ‘goal divergence’, but it’s the same thing. Creating ‘Best Practice’ has become a goal unto itself. I can see how creating such things can be helpful to less experienced testers, but I do think […]
Ruby stayed over with her Grandpa and Gran in Leeds for the first time this week (it is half term at her school) and I arranged to pick her up again at the rather splendid Yorkshire Sculpture Park. I have driven past here on the M1 many a time but never managed to venture in, […]
I have been very quiet on this blog for quite an extended period of time. My intention has always been to keep blogging, but other factors have interfered; a busy job, open university assignments, a lively child. I will try to put more content up; just the occasional post with some reblogs and shared posts. […]
