New Year

Staying in is so the new going out.

A quiet evening was had in the Irishdad household. Young son is oblivious to the occasion, dear wife is tired and tiny baby is on a strict routine of sleeping 23 hrs a day and feeding the rest of the time.

As Irishmam went to bed earlier, I watched and enjoyed Frost/Nixon while drinking a bottle of Riesling. Then, shortly before midnight I looked out the window and saw that it had started to snow. How pretty.

So, here’s a couple of photos from this evening of the blue moon rising and the schnee, plus a link to a great track by Alice in Chains – one of my all time favorite bands of all time. Be warned, the song is not one to make you reach for your happy shoes. It is beautiful though and reminds me of some of the lower days of the past year.

Midnight snow, 01 01 '10

Good Morrow.



  1. Gorgeous pics. Great track. And how the hell do you get that little one to sleep 23 hours? We seem to be on the opposite regime here! Send instruction manual! Stat!
    I hope 2010 brings many smiles for your family, while never forgetting little girl.

    • Thanks Sally. I’ve been reading your blog (as has my wife) and we can see that you are doing a fantastic job with Angus and blazing a trail just a few weeks ahead of us. I hope 2010 brings you lots of wonder.

  2. Best wishes for 2010 to you all. May black give way to blue, and blue to orange or a bright new dawn!

    Like the pics! You have a good eye

    • Thanks LITR. My best wishes to you and yours for ’10 as well.

  3. Happy new year!

    I LOVE Alice in Chains, we are clearly the same age!

    • So you’ve just turned 21 too? 🙂 The new album is really great. HNY.
