Day 181~366

My bloggypal Beetleypete and I are constantly banging on about our inclement weather, and today was another deluge, it rained non stop til about 4pm here. Oh well at least good for finding plenty of reflections and off I went with my camera. Got home and processed and chose the ones I liked, if, indeed, one can like a puddle.  Carried on then clearing out my home office, Phil came home, we h ad dinner, and then I came up to post the pictures. But I realised sitting here with the window open I could (and still can) hear boys out…

Day 174~366

My work has led to me visiting Cumbria almost weekly, a long drive but with stunning scenery, especially if doing the A66 through the mountain ranges, going by Lake Bassenthwaite and Skiddaw mountain over to Cockermouth, Workington & Whitehaven.  I’ve taken a fair few photographs along the way over the past 2 years.  Today was my last journey over there, and because I ended the day in Penrith had 3 choices of routes to come home. The A66, the less scenic A69, or the A686 across the pennines, a road I’ve only done the once, way back.  I remembered a…

Day 167~366

I’ve been finding this reflection month not very inspirational 😦 I miss the tree! 🙂 Everyone and his dog has done eyes, puddles, ponds & mountains in lakes, hell, even I’ve done all those before! Even the induction hob has been employed several times in the past. So I’ve been feeling quite blurkpft about the whole thing.  (Blurkpft is a word, those of you have felt it, will recognise it).  So tonight I thought to myself, stop dripping around half arsedly looking for shiny things to put on stuff, and do something different. So I got Phil to get my…

Day 164~366

It rained yesterday afternoon, and overnight, and this morning, so I went in search of puddles for my reflections. I stopped by last months tree to say hi 🙂 and I took some pictures of raindrops on stuff and this was my shot for today I told Phil I’d only be out for 10 minutes, but ended up spending an hour & half traipsing through the woodlands, just as I got home he’d come out looking for me as he was worried!  Of course I hadn’t taken my phone as I wasn’t going to be long 🙄doh! Back to work tomorrow,…

Day 157~366

The English Electric Lightning is a supersonic fighter aircraft of the Cold War era. It was designed, developed, and manufactured by English Electric, which was subsequently absorbed by the newly formed British Aircraft Corporation. It was then marketed as the BAC Lightning. The Lightning was the only all-British Mach 2 fighter aircraft. The Lightning was used by the Royal Air Force (RAF) and the Royal Saudi Air Force (RSAF). Although it was the RAF’s primary interceptor for more than two decades it was never required to attack another aircraft. The Lightning is powered by two Rolls-Royce Avon turbojet engines in…
