Day 129~366

I got up very early today as I’m going out with Sophie to visit Chillingham Castle. It was quite foggy this morning, so went out and got a long shot of the tree.



Day 17~366 & a Sunday Fraggle report

It’s been a little while since I wrote a Fraggle report, not since Christmas I think, but apart from my ongoing 366 project I’m still taking shots of the cat and the sunsets :). Work has been busy with lots of places to drive to and lots of clients to see, but no chance to stop and take photo’s, and I don’t like getting out of the car in the rain and the wind! Had a bit of a respite from the weather, and its been cold but no rain for a few days, it’ll be back towards the end of the week apparently.

Onto the pics!

First up has to be the weather, this was the view out of my bedroom window when I woke up last week.




Here are a couple of Skye. This is she trying to decide if she can jump on me while I’m at the computer.


luckily she got distracted.


She still likes to sleep the afternoon away on our bed


and sit on Phil’s knee when he’s trying to do his modelling.


he’s not always impressed with her devotion 🙂

When he’s had enough she comes next door and curls up under my desk on the envelope store!


Caught her sitting on a stool catching some rays on a sunny day



She is so boss of us.

We had a couple of nice sunsets



and I made a diptych of the flowers I’m using in my still life month for the Sunday Challenge group.

I’m really having fun with my still life month, I think I’m improving along the way, certainly I like the pictures I’ve been doing this week better than the ones I did in the first few days, so feel I’m getting the hang of it. So here is Day 17.


Back to work tomorrow, am just about ready with sorting out clothes and equipment, & charging the programmers and laptop. Have had a bit of an upset tum today so have been taking it easy. Phil’s off to work his week of nights so I’m off to watch a bit of TV with Skye. 🙂

The Sunday Fraggle report (on Monday)

Well last week was a busy one at work, I did an extra day, and was home late most days, but that’s how it goes sometimes. The weather has been weird, for a whole week most of the country was covered in fog. On Wednesday I had to drive up a steep hill in Northumberland, and at the top came out of the fog to find a beautiful sunny day, and in the first picture you can see Chesters Roman Fort in the distance. But as I crested the hill, the fog took me back into it’s folds.


Last Sunday we had a visit from Shelley with the kids and I got a couple of shots of Liddy,



nearly got a smile from her, but not quite!

This weekend Phil went off to the Nationals, a big model show in Telford, and I had to stay home and look after the cats, but planned a photo outing for Saturday with Sophie. Of course after the fog came rain, so we went to a Winter Fair in Hebburn, which I knew of as one of Phils colleagues, Lesley, makes jewellery and was having a stall there. It was held in a little school and was packed.

I took loads of photo’s so have collaged them or else you’se’ll all be wading through for ever, (not that it’s like me to post loads of photo’s 🙂 ) and yes, you’se’ll is a real word, pronounced yoozle 🙂












We got a bit claustrophobic after a while, the place was heaving with parents and liddle kiddles, and Sophie and I don’t really do well with noisy kids when we’re out and doing our thing, so we skedaddled after we got our pictures. As luck would have it the rain had stopped, and for a little while we had a bit of blue sky, so we explored bit of Hebburn, and I;ll leave those pics for another post 🙂

Another busy week at work and the weather is still pants, so our new patio is still not finished. Am wondering if the builders will ever come back! Anyways, back to sorting out work bits,
