Day 300~366

Day 300, there’s a milestone ūüôā only 66 days to go, so light at the end of the tunnel. ¬†Today is also exciting as the Woman~cave has arrived! Frego didn’t know it was coming. “Wow, look what’s turned up in the back garden! Where did THAT come from!?” ‘Surprise! This is your new home.’ “Woah! I’m going to live in it!?” ‘Sure, when it’s all kitted out with insulation and electricity and furniture & stuff.’ “It looks so big. I’ll get lonely” ‘Oh no, Skego will be with you and the other little people and The Bears, and I’ll be…

The Sunday Fraggle report ~ bits & bobs

Another week gone by, 25 days left till Christmas and a bit of time off, but still work to do and photo’s to take. ¬†This week I’ve managed a few so here we go. ¬†Firstly I got in the car Monday morning and spotted a spider web on my wing mirror, had a go at a quick snap with the iPhone and din’t expect to really get it, but it turned out surprisingly well. On Wednesday although it was cold, there was a sunny day, and as I was travelling a fair way up and down the North East, I…

The Sunday Fraggle report ~ bits & bobs edition.

Well it’s slim pickings at the moment with my photography. ¬†I’ve been working extra hours, and it gets dark here at 4.30pm so once I get home from work, sorted home work out, and had dinner, it’s being difficult to feel inspired or motivated. On top of that the weather is pants. But hey- ho I did get a couple to be going on with. Last weekend we went to the Annual Free convention held in Tynemouth, about 20 mins up the road from us. It’s (obviously) a yearly event where die hard fans of the band Free meet up,…

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 ūüôā It was a lovely blue sky day, with lots of shadows and contrasts.   We had a couple more blue sky days before it all…

The Sunday Fraggle Report.

It’s kind of getting¬†horrible here. Not much sunshine, a lot¬†of the¬†autumn¬†leaves are down on the ground, and it’s getting cold. The clock went back an hour last night making¬†evenings dark quickly, so it’s getting to that time of year where days out with the camera are not so many, and cosying up at home seems a better option. ¬†So I have given myself a little project to do. ¬†A little while ago I got my old film photo’s out of the loft as I was looking for a particular shot, and realised how many I have. ¬†And it appears that…

The Sunday Fraggle report ~ Bits & Bobs edition

It’s just about the end of September, and apart from days out, as always I’ve been taking pictures of daily life. We went up to Edinburgh at the beginning of the month, as a new scale model show has started up there called Scale Scotland, and Phil was asked to do a demonstration of figure detailing and composition. The show was held at The Airport Hilton, which is a nice enough hotel, and it was cool to be staying in the same place as where the show was held, as we didn’t have to get up too early :). I…

The Fraggle Fried Rice Recipe report

Cooking a fried rice is a labour of love. The cooking time itself is short, but the preparation seems to go on forever. This one took over an hour, but I don’t mind, I was in the mood. ¬†You can fry most stuff up with rice and do a little or a lot, but this was a special one so had lots of different elements. It was a sunny day today and I had intend to go for a walk to Wardley Lake with my camera, but we took our chucking up cat Storm to the vet this morning as…

The Sunday Fraggle report

I haven’t been on any day trips, but have always got cameras of some kind at the ready, so this is just a bits and bobs post. I have been travelling for work though and made use of the iphone. The first is of Skiddaw mountain and Lake Bassenthwaite in Cumbria, if you’ve followed my little blog for a while you’ve seen photo’s of it before, but it looks different every time I stop to see it, one day I’ll collect them all together and post them all in one go. I love the little church in the clearing by…

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…
