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 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..

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

A busy weekend this weekend as on Saturday night I went out to a surprise party for Phil’s daughter Shelley. Her friend Sam organised a joint baby shower/birthday party for Shelley and we all turned up at The Avenue pub in Sunderland before Shelley arrived. I had picked up Phil’s sister Annette and Karly ( Phil’s daughter-in-law) and Karly’s daughter Katie, and was ready with the camera when Shelly arrived. I didn’t do too well with the Fuji in this situation so am going to have to figure out what went wrong. Think I had ISO stuck on A so…

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…
