Family

I cannot think of any need in childhood as strong as the need for a father’s protection.     — Sigmund Freud “Other things may change us, but we start and end with the family.”–Anthony Brandt “Being a family means you are a part of something very wonderful. It means you will love and be loved for the rest of your life.”– Lisa Weed “The memories we make with our family are everything.”– Candace Cameron Bure “My children give me the gift of stepping out of the daily ordinariness into the father zone—a place where my innate curiosity, sense of adventure, and love…

Day 241~366

A colouring book is a type of book containing line art to which a reader may add colour using crayons, coloured pencils, marker pens, paint or other artistic media. Traditional colouring books and colouring pages are printed on paper or card. Some colouring books have perforated edges so their pages can be removed from the books and used as individual sheets. Others may include a story line and so are intended to be left intact. Paint books and colouring books emerged in the United States as part of the “democratization of art” process, inspired by a series of lectures by…

Days 212 & 213 ~366

We have had our grandkids Callum and Liddy for a sleepover this weekend, so everyone was inveigled into helping me finish my shadow shots this month. This the one from yesterday   and watching in the wings   and before today’s shot, some of the kids           And this is my last shadow shot Next month is Colour month. 🙂      

Day 142~366

Today has been a bit ‘the day after the night before’, as we had our good friends Paul & Lorraine over for dinner.  Lorraine made the most scrummy pate for starter and I made a lasagne for main. Drinks were drunk, music was played, polaroids were taken and final lights out was about 3am. A resounding success 🙂 Some photo’s before I do the tree shot. 🙂 Today I’ve been out to fix someone’s hearing aid, and then went to see the tree. A bit of a boring sky though 😦

Day 115~366

Busy day today, had a visit from Cal & Liddy 🙂 and had to go to the supermarket where I bought some measuring spoons. and my shot for today now got to get sorted ready for work tomorrow~ this weeks is not looking good, lots and lots of long journeys, which I’m heartily fed up of. Never mind, got to suck it up. For now. 🙂  

Day 66~366

Only 300 days to go! 😀 Square cakes today, and a nice cuppa tea to go with. I only like the pink ones, so Phil will have to eat the rest. Cal stayed over  last night and we had fun. But Skye has been poorly, not eating and chucking up, we are hoping it’s just a glitch, a fur ball or something, she’s a little better today, but if no better tomorrow it’s off to the vet. 😦 Waiting to see the birds.  

Day 30~366 and Skye

It’s been mad bonkers blowy weather here, and yesterday the clouds didn’t have chance to hang around so we had some sunshine in the conservatory and Skye sat in their posing prettily, so I had to take a few shots of her of course. She’s not usually good at having her photo taken but I got away with it 🙂 Also here is my picture for today, last one of the still life month tomorrow!  The people in the photo frames are Aunty jean on the left, my Mum at the back,my son Ben on the right, and me and…

Day 24~366 & Liddy

We had our little Liddy for a sleepover last night, first time with her. It didn’t go quite to plan, and we didn’t get much sleep, but we all survived and I got some smiley faces from her to photograph this morning 🙂 She is the spitting image of her brother Cal, who regular readers have seen on this blog many times. First though, my 24th still life shot..   and the beautiful Liddy..
