The frost on the rear window of my car this morning. The gritter didn't make it up our road, it stayed icy all day.
And the contrast - the Boy in the cosiness of the cafe after his swimming class. This is his treat - a bag of crisps and a carton of juice. The swimming pool was blissfully tropically warm (it's usually a bit chilly imho). I took my swimming stuff too so had a swim while he was in his lesson.
I didn't take any pics 'today' (forgot to take the card with me) so here's one I've taken 'tomorrow' of what I've been doing 'today'. Got all that?
I'm kicking myself about forgetting the card because we were doing a deep clean at the farmhouse with the conservator and there could have been some fascinatingly obscure pictures - old moth damage to textiles, me wearing a 'back vac' and looking like a Ghostbuster, four of us on our hands and knees vacuuming the carpet inch by painstaking inch, wrapping cushions in acid-free tissue and thick plastic to be frozen.. It was a good day - very satisfying work and surprisingly interesting.
I tackled the dining-room. There's still clutter but at least it's contained clutter. And in a perfect bit of timing, the Boy started learning about garden birds at school so finding the bird poster amongst the clutter was a Good Thing.
I love photographing this tree, it always manages to pose for me :-D.
Don't be deceived by the glorious blue sky, it was baltic today, and by afternoon was so overcast that we had to close the farmhouse a bit early so that I could get back down from the farm before it was actually pitch black.
A little present from Granny and Grandpa to Miss M - she loves it! The next thing I have to do is take a picture of her wearing her red coat and red hat with her fringe poking out so we can compare and contrast. Though you can just scroll down to the 11th Nov. pic to get a fair idea!
Over at my friend's house. This is the best picture of a not-great bunch. I'm kicking myself for not getting a picture of the catherine wheel as it was amazing - but it was also very LOUD and three out of the four kids present panicked and had to run inside!
As it was a beautiful if chilly day again, the Boy and I wandered up to the highest point in town after school (no, no idea how high and Google has failed to tell me). This is the view towards the wind farm.
Once upon a time my friend Bee told me about 'project 365' in which you take a photo a day for a year. I wasn't that disciplined about it and it took me one year and 3 months to reach Day 365, but it quickly became a habit of sorts and also a record of my year. So I've overrun but I continue with it anyway!
