The photo is from a great tale from the 2014 World Cup involving beer, Brazilians, lucky hats and cold feet. you don’t need a DSLR or a fancy smartphone with portrait mode to get depth in a photo. @ConorMcNamaraIE took… @ConorMcNamaraIE it was pretty much just you, tbh! @ConorMcNamaraIE that’s a cracking tale! I’m also interested in the depth of field in this photo - Tadaa? @ilicco @NickGarnettBBC to be fair, I said it was *on* Amazon, not from! Here are the details of the seller: @NickGarnettBBC 0545 - a veritable lie in @mostlysocial @NickGarnettBBC it certainly has echoes of it, yesGood to see the science is settled on how useful a mask actually is. was initially quite sceptical about the benefits of wearing a mask but given how bad my hay fever has been the la… @Documentally possibly but it’s so long ago that I don’t remember how much it was and currency fluctuations might h… @Nonphotoblue1 Our evenings consist of slumping in front of a TV show for an hour before bed at 9.45.

Wouldn’t filming someone with a Snapchat style mask on be much better to disguise them? @NickGarnettBBC @smartfilming @DavidMcClelland it is 2am, not 4.30
@smartfilming @LaurentClause that app will also involve a lot of trust: firstly, that the person doing the filming… @iFilmmakers I learned a LOT from it, back then! @smartfilming @LaurentClause does this seem new to you both? @jonathanfwells thanks for the offer! Out of interest, are they expensive or stupidly expensive? @GillianHargreav 1045 would be amazing. It’s got to the point that 0545 would feel like a lie-in! @jonathanfwells I hadn’t thought about a sleep coach...ta for the idea @bitsofcookies that’s a big problem too @maryvallis is a sugary marshamallow really a solution?! @ElizabethVerity yes - the GroClock is a firm favourite as a solution. @TheLifeOfMarcus the trouble with that theory is that there’s no way that *I* can sleep when I’m tired...! @annamdrew the GroClock seems very popular, thanks! @NickGarnettBBC @smartfilming @mythicStallion treble like this? @mythicStallion @KiloSBB I deliberately phrased it like that to leave that very interpretation open @mythicStallion that’s pretty much the case.

It’d be a lot less effort than walking her around at 4.30am! @rosieniven She’s going to sleep at 7.30pm so we could do that at 11pm or so - although we rarely stay up that late as we’re so tired too! @chrishams “Regular wake up time” as in the time she used to wake up before this nightmarish period began or an hou… @ilicco At this point, we’re up for trying anything @marshallTV ta - she’s only just two so too young for that! @damiengayle our days are ending at 9pm these days anyway! @CLeddyOwen cosleeping has never worked for any of us, sadly :-( @hatsopotatso she had quite a bit yesterday - enough that she had a bit of a lie down when she came home.
