365 for 2014

I started this blog to record just 1 year - I'm into my fourth year now, not great photography but a record for myself none the less!

How to embarrass your daughter!

As I put the tray down it slipped from my hand and coffee and milkshake flew everywhere! They guys in the cafe were good enough to replace it all free of charge, which was kind.

Friday night!

Tall Girl and I have been sitting in the garden, she has had cider, I have had wine- we have talked rubbish extensively! Below is a photo of Love in the Mist- she thinks it's called Wind in the Willows! Dyslexics R us!

Woke this morning and could hardly walk! Dr says I have Mortons neuroma...that's a swelling next to the nerves in my toes. Hope it goes soon as it's very inconvenient!

Ice may help...

This, hopefully, will produce a/some giant pumpkins by autumn. It's growing pretty fast and needs to be planted in the garden as soon as I have time- that, or it will invite itself into the house!

Damn! It's the moth season again- excuse me if this one looks slightly squashed!

Tonight was the last night for my counselling course, strange to have started 12 weeks ago with 15 total strangers and now to know them enough to feel comforted by them, only to never see them all as a group again- though we have swapped contact details. We have shared much along the way and for some, whole are in the midst of change,I want to know how the future goes. I wish them all the very best on their new chosen paths. 
However, onwards and upwards...I have just applied for the certificated course!

In the garden...

 After taking the cat to the vet- poor thing, though she can find nothing wrong but old age.

Getting things done...

I seem to have grown this but I don't know what it is?!

A day of doing jobs- sort of satisfying, it's been a long time since I spent a Tuesday doing that!

Banksy street art controversy!

When to see mum today but had to stop but to take a shot

Remember this post...?

Now it looks like this...

After the house owner tried to remove the art and sell it to a gallery

Coursework complete, 2 essays in one day! Only 2 weeks left - the next decision is...do I go for the next course which lasts a year? Lots to think about.

Current todo list...

There should be a picture of a book here as tonight my book club went to the pub, but no book was discussed-it's just a good excuse to get together!!
