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 😦

The Fraggle Report ~ Flora & Fauna

Apart from my weekend outings to fascinating places, I’ve still been going to work and taking pictures when I get chance, the cats still strike a good pose now and then, and hubby still buys me flowers to photograph as a surprise. So here are a few non-historic bits and bobs before I move on to the day trip to the Farne Islands. The cats are thriving, sort of, when they’re not puking up, which is a common occurrence. They drive us mad mostly, we are not used to such needy beings! Cats are supposed to be self sufficient more…

cats and polaroids

Just a quickie, am practicing a lot for my SX70 Project so here are a couple from my latest batch, the cats of course… Storm moved just as I pressed the shutter, and the light caught her left eye in a weird way and so this makes me laugh. Skye is sulking because we attached a lovely pink and sparkly collar to her as she has started wandering outside and we don’t want anyone to think she is a neglecterino. Had to catch Storm sunbathing in my bathroom 🙂 laters gaters 😉

The Sunday Fraggle Report

No days out or gigs or parties to attend this week, so back to flowers and landscapes and cats! I have been practicing with my Fuji macro lens on a houseplant one of my lovely clients gave me in the week. I have no idea what it is but noticed it has little stalks which produce drops of water, which I tried to get a shot of, but they are really tiny. The flowers and buds have curly bits at one end, and pointy bits at the other. The leaves are quite special too. So if anyone recognises the plant, let…

The Easter Fraggle report

It has been very nice to have a long weekend, and really nice to have the last 2 days with sunshine and blue skies.  I haven’t done a lot of photography, but on Thursday I had my lunch parked up in a country lane in Hexam, and had a little company. We haven’t really done much this weekend, Easter weekend is bonkers with traffic on the roads, and we like being at home anyway 🙂 but we did go and visit Shelley & Cal for a cup of tea on Saturday, and managed a trip to ASDA today 🙂 My…

The Sunday Fraggle report 4/1/2015

Happy New Year WP peeps! 🙂 Well that’s all over for another 11 1/2 months and off I go into 2015. It has been a quite lovely 2 weeks having only worked 2 days of Christmas week and 2 days of New Year week. Lots of time off but have not really done much photography strangely. The nicest thing has been having a good deal of time off and spending it with my lovely hubby, we’ve had a fab time cooking, eating, getting merry, watching movies and concerts and listening to music. We haven’t been out much and it’s been…
