Gathering for a torchlit procession, snow beginning to fall.

The camera has overcompensated for the low light (it was actually much darker than it appears).

Facepainted & balloon-headed

Soft-focus effect due to the lens steaming up when I came back into the warm.

Still blooming

There's less of it than there was but the dyer's chamomile is still providing a decent splash of colour in the garden.

East Ren

This is an old picture I found this evening - it's been sitting on my camera (in the camera memory rather than the card memory) since May and I didn't realise. It's my very silly and actually quite large cat squeezing into the gap under the settee.

For the Boy and My Beloved to consume while watching The Muppets. The house still stinks of it.

I wonder if it's warm?

Must subdue swimming bag!

Something about the smell of chlorine or maybe bleach.

Couldn't find my nostepinne so I used the end of a salad-serving implement instead.

New smucks

And in a search for Shetland dialect stuff I came across two poems by an old teacher of mine. There's something deeply shocking about finding a former teacher using swearwords in poetry - I'm reeling :-D.

A bit of editorialising by my 'phone

Goes quite well with the previous one don't you think? 'Once upon a Glasgow dreary...'

words cannot begin to describe..

.. what a nightmare this was - putting together a trampoline in my mother-in-law's garden. The instructions were a nightmare.

For Granny

Me: Granny thought the school picture was nice.
Boy: What picture?
Me: The one of you too going back to school - I put it on Facebook and she saw it.
Boy: You didn't tell me the picture was for Granny!
Me: ??
Boy: I'd have smiled. And stayed in the picture! You can take another one.

So I did.

Thought this was nigella before it flowered then realised it was cosmos - must have been in that flower mix. Very pretty - think I'll grow lots next year!

At Landmark Forest Adventure Park. Thankfully there is no photographic evidence of how I  looked after coming down the water slide - rabbit-in-the-headlights about covers it. Mama ain't no adrenaline-junkie..

Only for the paddling pool of course.
