The Sunday Fraggle report~ bits and bobs

Here we are at the end of October and beginning of November and only 54 days til Christmas :). So as well as my days out and travels, of course there have been incidental bits and bobs to catch along the way.

At the beginning of the month I travelled to the Scottish Border land to see a client in a little seaside village called Eyemouth, and took a few shots with my Eyephone πŸ™‚ It was a lovely blue sky day, with lots of shadows and contrasts.

We had a couple more blue sky days before it all went a bit meh, and I got a coupleΒ of the trees around where I live..

and that was the last of the nice days. So of course I then had to resort to taking pictures of the cats.

First a study of Storm sitting in the sunlight coming through the kitchen window,

Milky Mouth

Storm absolutely loves cat milk, I’ve never given cats milk before, only water, but this is special milk made for cats and they were brought up with it by the previous owner so we give them a little for a treat now and then.

We had a visit from our grandson..

You may remember from a previous bits and bobs, that Phil’s socks clone themselves in my washing machine, Β while I discovered mine halve themselves, not a pair amongst them!

I bought a new Salt & Pepper set when I was on the ferry back from Holland,

One of the blogs I follow is a cartoonist called Tony, who is currently putting up collector cards of his characters..he’s very funny and you can check his site out HERE

I wanted to show the before and after pictures of our new patio in the back garden, but rain has prevented the builder chaps from completing it as yet, so that will have to be in November’s bits and bobs. It’s looking fab so far.

And yesterday was halloween! I carved a pumpkin, got lots of sweeties in for the trick & treaters, and then took pictures of them all when they came to the door.

First though my lovely hairdresser Kendal came over to do bits to me..

  2. I am steadfastly NOT counting down til Christmas.
    We had 161 trick or treaters on Saturday, who kept us on our toes. We had pumpkins but not a moment to carve them. They did the trick.
    I hope your week goes better than you think. Good luck.

  3. I guess bits and bobs gets some bits and bobs comments… so nice to see blue sky there, I especially love the changing colors of the leaves on a sunny day, and those are some serious cat whiskers!!

  4. I learn such interesting phrases by reading your blog!
    Storm is an amazing model. I love the black and white photo of her. The light reflecting off of her fur is electric πŸ™‚
    I love the fall colors and the jack-o-lantern in the dark, and I’m sorry to hear about your socks. Hang onto them because when their mates come back from that alternate sock dimension, you want to be able to match them back up πŸ™‚
