It was so bright I couldn't actually see either the screen or through the viewfinder, hence the out-of-focusness of this one. A bit frustrating but oh wow, blossom stuff is so gorgeous. I'm still taken aback at how lovely it is every spring.
Miss Mouse somewhat oil-smeared while the Boy is slightly pink from running round in the sunshine. And finally, the comedy cat photo. We're easily amused by our cats, but particularly by the way Toby hangs onto the door.
Miss Mouse found an old dress and decided to wear it - it's really too small (12-18 months?) but she loves the frothy layers so she squeezed into it and pranced around happily. She's such a girlie girl at times.
And I completely forgot to tell her Granny and Grandpa that the kids loved their Easter chocolate lollies :-). Thank you!
MrBorg (dark blob at the bottom of the picture, with two even smaller kid-shaped blobs) had the day off today so we took the kids to Whitelee Wind Farm. We can see some of the turbines from the Boy's bedroom and the visitor centre opened a while back but we'd never been before. There's a weird loss of scale looking at the turbines even quite close to. And then suddenly you're standing at the bottom of one and it's enormous.
MrBorg and the Boy went back to the visitor centre to play with the interactive exhibits while Miss Mouse and I wandered along a bit to take some more photos.
Naturally when you're in the middle of a surreal science-fiction landscape your three-year-old points out the pile of poo as an item of interest.
This is my arty-farty juxtaposition picture - I'm quite pleased with it.
Unfortunately the stem got a bit trampled during the Great Pruning of Anonymous Spiky Plants so I had to cut it rather than let it brighten up the garden. But there will be more. I hope. I'm sure there are loads of bulbs planted in the garden. Just not sure where.
In which the kids were elsewhere for much of the day, so I spent a pleasantly substantial amount of time sitting outside in the sunshine knitting, drinking coffee, reading, and getting, oh dear, sunburnt just a little bit.
Look at the sky!
Look at the Shoes of Great Fabulousness glinting in the sun!
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!
