Just another day at the beach

I am sure that when Sian and I tell people that we live and work in Barbados, they think that we just chill out on crazy beaches all day. But, unfortunately, like most people - the job gets in the way of the dream.  We work ridiculous hours. …

What was wrong with wires Steve Jobs? You utter, utter arse.

Sian and I have just got back for a half hour break before we head back to the lab to finish our work for the week...hopefully. But we needed a break because we had been there for 7 hours, and I was getting increasingly frustrated with my Mac. …

Lightning

It has been a veeeerrryyyy loong time since my last post, and for that I truly apologise - thanks for waiting and for coming back to see our latest adventures 🙂 It has been crazy busy at work after two of my team resigned, and the wedding…

A day at the races

Yesterday was made up of a lot of firsts for us.  It was the first time Sian and I were going to the races down at the Garisson, it was the first time I would be shooting solely in RAW, and it was the first time that I had decided I was going…

Caterpillar Capers

Due to various members being sick over the weekend, Sian, James and myself were roped into a last minute day's work on Saturday.  I am currently suffering from a cold, and therefore believe that the world is ending (who can blame me - I'm a…

It's raining cats and dogs...oh, and Caragh's here!

So, I have looooads of piccies to share with you today, which is crazy exciting, but the first thing I need to share is the big news that my little sister (in law, technically) Caragh is out here staying with us and it is AWESOME to have her…

Taking my time....

Hello all, So firstly, I do apologise for the long wait since my last blog. For those dedicated fans, of which I believe there are...one, (that's you Jenny!) I have been kept very busy at work with various shenanigans, and Barbados has been…

Crop Over - Another rainy day in sunny Barbados

Yesterday, Sian, James and myself poodled on down to the Spring Garden Highway, to see the end of the procession of the legendary 'crop over' festival. Crop over celebrates, as you've probably guessed, the final harvesting of the year's sugar…

Some pictures...from the day time?!

Reading through my posts, it dawned on me that pretty much all of the photos I have posted have been from the evening.  This is mainly down to the fact that, despite having an awesome job, Sian and I work bloody hard. All the time. But last…

The Limbo Lady

Every Wednesday here at the resort, we have a barbecue evening set out on the beach when the weather permits, otherwise we are all bundled into the slightly dryer Horizons restaurant, and this lady comes out to play: Sian and I have probably…

Digging out the old...

Quick post - I am trawling through the harddrive and trying to work out which photos I should share with all you good people, or at least the eight that will come and read this. I am also trying to find some snaps that I have not already shared…

Everybody in the house make some noise...

As you may have gathered from my previous posts, Sian very kindly agreed for me to buy 'us' a new camera  (despite her best efforts she is yet to have a proper go with it...I'm afraid I'm not the best at sharing).  Anyway, the camera we opted…
