Sophie, Nora & I really enjoyed culture night Belfast tonight. Here’s a short video of some colourful characters dancing to the beat of Beat ‘N Drum samba group.Great to see hundreds of people swarm Belfast’s Cathedral Quarter for art workshops, storytelling, live music and theatre and loads more- more of this sort of thing, please!
Getting a real dose of it this week – Kim (my wife) is out of town for the fortnight and I’ve got our adorable 5 year old all to myself. It’s a trip: she’s just started school and it’s really what you’d expect from being a “single parent”. Lots of running too and fro from school, to babysitters, to friends and back again.

About 8 weeks ago I became fed up with being overweight. It’s not that I’m huge, but more that I’d just begun to FEEL unhealthy, sedantary.So, first step, I joined a gym (maybe more on that later). Next step was http://www.graze.com I spend a lot of time at a computer and lunch generally consisted of a sandwich. I decided to switch out the sandwich and replace it with Graze’s hassle free deliveries of dried fruit, fresh fruit and nuts. I am a HUGE fan of Graze. In the 8 weeks since I went daily with their boxes, I’ve lost 10 pounds – and I still get to occasionally go crazy with a fish supper. Also, the fruit and nuts keep my sugar levels even so I’ve got good energy all day and their selection is wide enough that the deliveries never get boring. If you want to try Graze for free, just go to www.graze.com and enter the code WQYXPBJ. Anyway, this is the first diet i’ve ever been on – and it’s going well so far!
I love football. I’ve never been sure why the game has excited me so much, but it does. Every September is like Christmas when the new season begins.
And although I love my 3-time Superbowl winning Oakland Raiders A LOT, I love the game itself more. The scheming, the chess-like tactics and yes, the hitting.
So although my Raiders lost a heartbreaker last night to open the new season, 24-20 to the division rival San Diego Chargers, I’m just excited that football season is here.
