I'm quite pleased with this one. The hairdresser used straighteners which I rarely have the time/patience for, so it won't often look this good.

At a meal out for my colleague Lynne who's getting married on Saturday! A really great night out :-).

Overtaken by Gin

I was happily tootling along when I was suddenly overtaken by Gin, Harry's dog, shortly followed by Harry in one of the Massey-Fergusons. I should probably point out that I had no passengers at the time - I don't normally take pictures while in motion!

Bathday for Teddy

I felt so guilty pegging him up like that! A little too much anthropomorphising in our house I think..
A friend of a friend recently told me that when he'd worked in a children's hospital/ward he'd seen the freshly-washed teddies, rabbits and assorted cuddlies hanging on the washing-line (generally by their ears!) and had thought it would make a great photograph but never had his camera with him at the right time - shame really, that'd make a brilliant picture!

Knitting night - Sarah's throw

A completely gorgeous item that I couldn't resist photographing!

Japan in the spring?

Or maybe just Kittochside! I'm so pleased with this picture :-). I had to drop in to work briefly and as it was another gorgeous day (best yet?) I took the camera and walked up to the farm to get some sheep pics. This picture was taken just next to where I'd parked.

Another gorgeous day and I got to spend the whole morning tootling up and down the hill in the tractor, stopping now and then to move lambs off the track.

Knitting in the sun

Looks all summery, doesn't it? It's been the most gorgeous Easter holiday.

When shall we three meet again? part 2

The offspring and their cousin - at Grandma's. Getting three of them to be sensible at once proved impossible, and it all got sillier and sillier.

A little wild flower

Hardy perennial by the looks of her! We spent a while in the garden - theoretically 'gardening' but Miss M has some interesting ideas about weeding - and I took quite a few more plant pics, but I thought it was about time to let the offspring back into the blog!

More plantiness

Spotted this in the supermarket car-park!

Showing my botanical ignorance again

A flower in my father-in-law's garden. I've no idea what it is, but I loved the colours and texture, and I'm quite pleased with this photo.

The triplets

Snoozing in the sun. It was a great Easter event at work - sunshine, daffodils, lambs, calves, chocolate, giant Easter bunnies..

Oooh, macro mode

Flowers of some kind in my mother-in-law's garden.

um... insert witty caption

Compare and contrast

Yeah, daff again but I was so pleased with this, and I want to do a compare & contrast with the last daff pic.
It was quite windy and the daff was flapping around - with the old Kodak that would mean a very blurry shot but the Canon's got it crystal clear. Upload times are longer of course as the files are so much bigger, but overall I'm so pleased with my new bit of tech!

New camera!

Starting off with a horrible self-portrait - actually not too bad, but don't I look tired?

Well, Mr Wordsworth would be pleased

Yes, another daff. Sorry :-D. But I like photographing plants!

Sunday, 5 April 2009


A bit of a smudge on the lens but never mind. The lens cover has got stuck on 'open' so I'm having to clean the lens a lot. I think this is what went wrong with my last camera too - not what finished it off, but the first thing to go wrong with it. Still, this one's taken a lot of abuse one way and another, so it's done pretty well, and still seems to be working fine.

Sunglasses, sunglasses..

I'm really pleased with this picture - I took a few and there's a lovely one where she's looking at the camera, but I like that she's completely oblivious of the camera in this one.

Little paw

Miss Mouse and her teddy.

More daffiness

This is the first (and, by the look of it, the only) daffodil in my garden. It was a really nice day here today so it was choice of a photograph of my washing on the line, or this.

Works of art

I thought I should probably record my Mother's Day loot for posterity. The Boy was so excited about giving me my card (the one with the yellow flower) - it was very endearing! Miss Mouse made the other two - one at nursery and one at the gym creche.
