This is my attempt to take a picture every day of 2007 which should represent my day in some way. I'm a Politics student at Hull University (UK) and im in my final year so 2007 will include some big events for me - graduation, moving to a new city and flat, starting a new job etc. So hopefully this will project will be a good account of an intersting year!!

Anyway enough talking here's the first picture.

Hot Chocolate and Cookies

Well today's picture will continue to givethe impression that i'm christmas obsessed :) I've got to give a presentation at Uni on Tuesday so I spent most of the day in the library!! Not fun. When I finally finished and got home my housemate had her two nephews round and they were baking and making cookies, so I joined in and then enjoyed a nice hot chocolate and relaxed for the rest of the evening.
RobW_ PRO 11 years ago
Very Christmassy, your diary recently, Simon. 'Tis the season to be chocolatey, matey.

Is your boss involved in the current funding scandal? Probably not, that wouldn't be good Press.

And Alex, I don't think there is anything to stop you decorating your house and looking festive at Christmas, is there? On the other hand, it wouldn't be good for you to be too festive at Easter ;-)
Simon-K 11 years ago
Definitely the season to be chocolatey :)

No we're nowhere near the funding scandal - thank god!!! That whole thing has created a pretty bad atmosphere around politics at the moment!

Quality Street

Got some pretty good news today - a few weeks ago I had to had in my first essay for my Masters degree. Well today I got it back and I got a distinction which im over the moon with. To make it even better I got one of the top three marks on the degree :) Quite surprising really considering the fact that I thought it was a bit rubbish.

Simon, you and my wife would get along fabulously!! She is perhaps the most Christmas-y person I've ever known...

I can hardly sleep in the house anymore and not be blinded with Christmas lights (good taste, of course)

I need to take more damn photos!
Simon-K 11 years ago
Do you have lights outside the house? I think thats a very American thing to do - at least its not very common over here. Will have to keep an eye out for the pictures.

Actually Rob.. Easter (well our easter anyways..). is a much greater celebration for us than many other holidays.. It was is celebration of our freedom, the end of slavery and of the Pharoh's cruel dominion on the people of Israel.
Jesus' last supper was indeed a Seder, the Jewish Passover meal. So yes, though we don't celebrate the resurrection of Christ, we have however been celebrating Passover long before...

As for the decorations... well sure there might not be nothign wrong, but I think each hooiday and each celebration has its own customs and traditions. It wouldn't be very appropriae to adopt some that aren't rightfully ours, don't you think?

I guess everyone just does what they feel and that's fine.

Political Christmas

Had to give a presentation at Uni today which I was dreading! The thing I hate most is public speaking - even on a subject i feel confident about and no matter how confident I am before the presentation, you can guarantee i'll become some sort of nervous wreck as I start :) But it seemed to go ok in the end - although I think I talked way too fast.

Took this photo in between leaving work and heading to class.

He's Gonna Find Out Who's Naught and Nice

Today was a really good day but at the same time quite disconcerting!! It was good because stuff at work is going really well and it was the series finale of Heroes (which by the way was brilliant). But the disconcerting bit was I think I've started sleep walking! When I woke up today stuff had moved around my room (including a bag which im positive was downstairs) and some stuff had completely disappeared. Its just weird.

@Rob - Cheers Rob I really like the additional colour the Eye provides

@ebil - lol! Yeah on the off chance he runs out of presents and has to buy some more in Canary Wharf! I've been told without the signs people nick the decorations :)

@sunshine - yeah someone told me I should do that. I was also told it can run in the family so I spoke to my dad and he said he used to do it quite a lot when he was younger - he even ended up in the garden once or twice apparently!

@Jallen - I know tell me about it!! Its taking things a little too far
Dragonhide 11 years ago
regarding sleepwalking.. I used to do that quite a bit when a young kid. I of course have no memory of any of them, except being shaken awake these few times my parents or brother would come into my room after they saw me dash back in, and wake me up and ask me what I've been doing??? My Mom finally put a lock on the outside of my door to keep me in.. lol I guess that cured me, I'm not aware of doing that since I was a child.

weird stuff
RobW_ PRO 11 years ago
Hey Simon, I found someone emulating one of your more successful shots! At first glance, I thought it was yours.

Talking of which, your shot of the Christmas tree with the CCTV sign is a good one also. Sad that the sign should be necessary.

And disconcerting about the sleepwalking, especially if things have been rearranged or disappeared.
Simon-K 11 years ago
@jallen - it is weird. When I spoke to my dad he said he only did it when he was younger, and from reading on the internet it seems that it does generally affect kids!

@Rob - I have to admit my photo like that wasn't particularly original - there a quite a few examples of similar shots on Flickr. Very disconcerting about the sleepwalking, but luckily it hasn't happened again (that I know of!!!)

Its all so green!!

I know you're all probably fed up of christmas photos by know but this is the only picture I took today and there's so much christmas stuff around!! And frankly I needed a bit of cheering up after the day I had. It was just awful. Everything seemed to be going wrong (mainly my bosses fault!!!) and I just got so fed up. And then when I headed home my journey was made really uncomfortable. I'm sure anyone who has used the underground during rush hour knows how bad it can get, but I am constantly amazed at how london commuters can see a train that is absolutely packed and then think there could be room for another twenty people - fun! I was so glad to get home, collapse and have a much deserved drink!
RobW_ PRO Posted 11 years ago. Edited by RobW_ (member) 11 years ago
Nice abstract, suitable for any season. The red one, which I saw high on Explore this morning, equally good (congrats). And no need to apologise, it is officially Christmas after all, the Feast of St. Nicholas (Agios Nikolaos) yesterday inaugurating the season (Advent), which runs until 12th Night, 6 January, the Feast of Epiphany.

Incidentally (since I am a foreigner living in Greece, and such curiosities appeal to me), both of those namedays were traditionally observed more than Christmas itself, and many of the trappings of Christmas are of comparatively recent introduction in Greece. Now however, the commercialism of it reigns, as it does everywhere.

And like Sunni and Passover, discussed above, Easter is a much more important holiday than Christmas, with many of the same commercial manifestations (eg it is traditional that godparents buy their godchildren a very elaborate Easter Candle (lampada) and a new pair of shoes at Easter).

Enough of that, back to Christmas (and chocolate).
Simon-K 11 years ago
Really interesting stuff there Rob - particuarlly the article on St Nicholas (who knew he was Patron Saint of students in quite a lot of Europe!). Interesting that the two days used to be more celebrated than Christmas as well - thats definitely not the case in the UK. I know the dates are still recognised by the Church and they probably have a special service but nothing beyond that.

And don't worry about getting back to Christmas and chocolate - tonights picture is a chocolate one :)

Posh Chocs

I know I promised there would be no more chocolate shots for a while I sort of couldn't avoid it today because people kept giving me chocolates! I'd helped to organise a mini-conference at work (but I wasn't actually attending it) and as a sort of thank you I was asked if I wanted to join them all for lunch. Lunch turned out to be quite a posh affair in the House of Lords. The food was gorgeous and the whole thing was really nice. The waiters seemed to be a bit obsessed with the wine though - I swear every time i had a few sips one of the waiters was over topping up the glass!! As I hardly ever drink at lunch this made working in the afternoon a little less productive. After the meal everyone was presented with a little box of chocolates - my first of the day. Then after the conference finished I had to attend a meeting with a visitor from Eastern Europe. As a thankyou for meeting him he gave my boss another small box of chocolates but this time from a really posh chocolatier in Belgium (you can see photos in my stream), after the meeting my boss gave me the chocolates - the second of the day. And then when I got home a friend of mine had sent me some chocolates as a Christmas present!!
RobW_ PRO 11 years ago
Wow, that is a distinguished box of chocolates! You are having some enviable experiences, Simon! Did you meet Baroness Warsi? I'm a fan of hers after her role in the Sudan schoolteacher incident a few days ago.

Nah no one as distinguished as her, come to think of it im not even sure if there were any Lords there

Canary Wharf Juggler

Very boring day today, next essay's due in on Monday so all day was spent at home working on it. Wouldn't have wanted to go out for long anyway as it rained virtually all day. I did pop out briefly to do a bit of shopping at Canary Wharf and saw this guy juggling to entertain the kids.

The house im renting at the moment has been on the market ever since I moved in (although I didn't know it at the time) and I think I found out today why it hasn't sold yet. We got a knock on the door this afternoon from a guy from asking if we wanted to sell the house (quite typical in this area). What was stupid was he was from the same estate agents and there's a big massive sign right by the door from his own company. Explains a lot really.

Westminster Doorway

Well I might have been in the Christmas mood for about a week but it seems that today (London) has finally joined me in enjoying Christmas. Between lunch and going to my class at Uni after work I passed five different choirs singing carols. The first was the Salvation Army International Band who were in Parliament for a lunch time carol concert, then in the main office building for MPs there was a school choir. Then from leaving the office to getting to Uni there were three choirs singing and collecting money for charity. Its starting to feel properly christmassy now :)

Protest 3

Bit of an up and down day today. I had to spend ages writing the christmas cards today which is not a job I like! Then at lunch I walked past this protest (or stunt as I think it actually was) which was quite funny. Even though it was attacking the party who my boss is an M.P for their signs, chants and songs made me laugh, Then something odd happened - one of the people with the protest came over and tried to ask me a few questions while filming me!!! Very odd.

Then it went well again as I went to Uni and finished my Uni work for about four weeks which is a great relief as I could really use the break.
Dragonhide 11 years ago
Woah, is that juggler actually balancing these pins on his head? TALENT.

Did you practice your juggling with him? :-)

I love it when street jugglers throw me stuff as a joke and are surprised when I catch and juggle a couple rounds, then toss it back to them. I love it!!!

Only happened once, but it brought a big smile to my face all day seeing how surprised he was!

I'm remembering correctly that you also juggle, yeah?
Simon-K 11 years ago
You are remembering correctly I do juggle (though haven't done in a while). Nah he didn't even seem to notice me, he seemed to be more interested in making the kids smile, which I guess is what he was being paid for!

Decaying Tube

Another day another christmas event. Tonight was the Parliamentary Carol Concert at St Margarets Chapel (part of Westminster Abbey and often referred to as the Parliamentary Parish Church). Its always a good event and gets people in the Christmas mood. This year there were readings by a couple of ministers, a senior opposition MP and even the Speaker himself. But even more surprising was the fact that the Archbishop of Canterbury was there. As one of the few bishops to have a seat in the House of Lords he happened to be in the area (so to speak) and was asked to be guest of honour, I even got to briefly meet him afterwards.

Today was the work christmas do. As I think i've mentioned there's only three of us in the office including the boss so it could have been a really small do, but his wife came, his assistant in the constituency came down with her husband and the guy who I took over from all came meaning it was much better. It was a really fancy meal in one of the members dining rooms and was gorgeous :) Drank a lot of nice wine and had a great time. Really didn't get much work done for the rest of the day :)

Simon-K 11 years ago
@sunshine - tell me about it, its a real struggle to go to work when I see that

@ebil - No its quite boring in reality. Morden is a station in South London on the Northern Line. The Northern Line splits into two sections at one point so the sign is saying if there's no train to Mordon (end of the line) then to get on a train to Stockwell at which point the two lines converge and you can change for a Morden train. See told you it was boring!!!

Santas

Well this weekend is the first in ages where I don't have to spend it all in Library!!!! So the first thing I did was sleep in :) Then I decided to head into London to have a look at the Hyde Park Winter Wonderland. It was quite a nice little fair/market and everyone was having fun. While I was there I bumped into hundreds of Santas!! They were part of Santacon a now annual event where hundreds of people dress up as Santa and effectively go on a pub crawl round London. I then spent most of the day doing Christmas shopping. When the Cold just got too much I headed home but on the way saw all the Santas gathered together in Trafalgar Square singing "alternative" carols so I stopped to take some pictures. I have to say 100s of santas in central london is quite a sight.

No use crying over spilt milk! Well, folks, Ritsa and I got to visit Simon at the Parliament building today, and let me tell you it is spectacular, just oozing history, and Simon is just as nice as you know he is, if you've been following his diary.

Later we visited our daughter Natasha, who recently started a new job right around the corner at the Churchill Museum and Cabinet War Rooms, a really interesting museum, which we will go back to next week for an in-depth tour.

After that we had an after-dark ride on the London Eye, then another Diary meetup with Jissy and Lionel, over Tapas and wine in Putney. Fabulous!

What a day. I have 330 photos in my camera, not much time to select, edit and upload, but watch this space!

Meanwhile, Simon has gone up North to his family for Christmas, hard-working Jissy has a few days off, and we are going to be doing a family Christmas here in London.

Well between Robs and my earlier posts you've heard about most of my day. Had my first every Flickr meetup with Rob and his lovely wife Ritsa. Showed them round Parliament (or at least what was open) and had a really nice time. Stupidly I didn't have my camera with me (it was all packed away for Christmas) so i'll have to link to on of Rob's pictures when he uploads them.

Then after work I had to rush over to St Pancras to get my train back up North for Christmas. Managed to make my train but some drunk driver crashed his car into a rail bridge meaning we were delayed for quite a while. I got home really late.
