Day 245 - 251

Still on the catch up here... well, at least it is only the dreaded blogging and not the photo taking...


I must admit, this was the perfect prompt for me :) you all remember that photo i showed off way back on Day 57? Well, i got my two warring parties to set aside the weapons and cooperate for today's photo! Turned into quite the giggle as we couldnt work out how we took the original photo and also, when my hand was the biggest back then.. it is now the SMALLEST.. how things change :) Anyway, here are our hands:


Another nice and easy word.. some funky socks i bought for a sock monster that im planning on making for someone to cheer up their day a little.

Something You Wear

Well, you've all seen my shoe collection, my jewellery collection, my jeans collection, my shirts and tshirts.. so, really there isnt much left to show you that i wear.. and NO i will NOT go into my underwear drawer for you all. But i'm coming close with this photo.. ladies, i give you all... my favourite PYJAMAS


Well, after giving up on about 100 photos gone wrong, i settled for our twisted pasta before cooking it.

Out Shopping

Perfect prompt for a monday, as mondays are our shopping day.... as anticipated and much loved by dh as they are dreaded by me. I usually try and get away with waiting in the car with a book or a puzzle and let him get on with it.. but, as i needed a photo, i braved the shop. Here is dh doing one of his favourite things in the whole wide world SHOPPING.


Mmmm.. i used to be a ribbon addict when we were still living our "old life" and i had a huge collection in all the colours you could imagine. Nowadays, as i cant really bring myself to scrap anymore as it brings too many sore memories, i only have a small collection that fit into two jars.. but here are my pretty ribbons:


Im not much of a basket person.. more of box person, boxes can be neatly stacked and have those wonderful lids on that you can just cram on top.. but i do have one basket (well kind of, its made from wicker and woven so i guess it counts?) that contains the yarn balls i use for current projects. Yup, that double bedspread is still in the making.

Last days of August in September

It's been ages again since i last felt the inclination to update this blog... but i have faithfully taken my photos each day. The last catch up post was meant to include explanations of the photos but i ran out of steam and the will to blog after resizing and posting the photos. Most of them are self explanatory really anyway, maybe with the exception for:


I took a photo of Coopy's ear because that seems to be one body part of his that EVERYBODY likes, its the silky, soft fur that makes it so tangible and even for me, playing with coopy's ears can calm me down in a matter of minutes, when nothing else works.


We don't usually have desert on weekdays, but that particular apple strudle and custard was not only desert on a weekday, but also very, very late on a weekday, so HIGHLY irregular.


As i chose Frog (who really is one of our fire bellied toads) for my free choice, his food was an obvious (to me) follow on


As i had used the perfect thing for unity, i had to really think (i could have embarrassed myself and taken a photo of the christmas tree start that still hasnt made its' way into the loft) and it wasn't until i closed my laptop that i noticed the stars on the lid.


Ladies, that is my ENTIRE shoe collection :) i usually rattle around in my crocs in the summer (the mary jane's are my dress shoes) and my docMartens or trainers in the winter.. simple as that.


This one im quite proud of! I have shown you this plant before and yup, it has survived my TLC for all this time and is still going strong and throwing out its' little flowers!
