Autumn hollyhock

I've got a weakness for hollyhocks, dunno why. It may not have flowers, but I still like it!

Borg's Borked Car

Mr Borg's car had suspension issues again so Mr Borg was very manly and tackled it himself. Then gave up.

Uninspired Title

Really running out of ideas now! We went to Rouken Glen park today and I took loads of plant pictures.

After school smiles

Actually quite a rare occurrence, he's usually surly and monosyllabic after school!

Out for a walk

Nice rich colours.

Huge fanged killing-machine

Or 'Cara'. Oh well, she's quite nice as dogs go I suppose.

It was another gorgeous day, and Miss Mouse and I went to the park with friends - I didn't capture the really vivid colour of these flowers.
Meanwhile the Boy was having a good time at school - this is from his homework diary.

In search of an avatar

Possibly when I'd been coughing and sneezing for days wasn't the best time to try to take a pic of myself for a new Facebook avatar...

You've got red on you

I'm kicking myself really - it was another glorious day, mellow fruitfulness a-plenty - but for some reason I didn't take any photos (actually because I've been battling my sinuses all week and just didn't feel like it). However thanks to Morag mum's homemade raspberry jam I have mellow-fruifulness-in-a-jar :-D.

The Blues

Oh yeah and a self-portrait :-D.

Caterpillar green

I took the kids over to play with the Boy's friend. When we arrived he'd just found this gorgeous caterpillar. The kids had a great time making it a home and ensuring it was in the shade and so on.

I was over at my friend Allison's house - we sat in her garden drinking coffee and nattering and it was bliss. This is the tree behind her garden - I don't know what it is (tree recognition skills are far from l33t), but I like it.

And more

I know this is a bit repetitive, but look! Blue sky! Sunshine! Washing on the line! It's nice!

Indian Summer continued

Gorgeous day.

Miss Mouse running along to get the Boy from school.

From the dining-room window

Wet. It's not really out of focus, it's the rain on the window.

More Brightness

Beginning to look a little autumnal.

Very Important People

From left to right: the Boy's penguin, the Boy, the Boy's Rabbit, Miss Mouse, Miss Mouse's Teddy. The diagram in the corner is apparently some kind of To Do list - I hadn't showered at this point, not sure what the other icons were, something to do with breakfast I think.

The green twins

Miss Mouse had her friend E over - by chance they were wearing identical green tops with pink trousers. This is them singing along to the summer song on CBeebies.

Spot the theme

Miss Mouse seems to think she's a rain goddess. Oh, and we got hail too this time. It was so loud on the car we couldn't hear the school bell ring.
