Day 251 - Hands

We had a new unit built while we were away on holiday, and came back to find it - complete and gorgeous, but completely unpainted!

So the next job was several coats of primer and undercoat and now the glorious privilege of gloss painting!  Well of course I get it everywhere!

Definitely a prompt I could relate to!

A summer catch up

Well, I've been completely hopeless at keeping up with the prompts, and then I was away without internet for three weeks of the holidays so here are a selection of photos from my ipod covering our summer activities, in the spirit of 365 if not the letter!

 Gokarting for DS2s birthday

Some general daftness!

Gorgeous sunflowers from a friend!

Camping at New Wine - Shepton Mallet

Holly & Simon's Wedding in Devon

Messing about on the dock!


Paralympic Athletics.

A wonderful wedding in the Landmark Hotel, Marylebone.

I have realised that by only taking photos when it's sunny I have made the summer look rather good - we all know the truth - call it journalistic licence!!

Back for Day 250

Colour - Well predictably, the minute the kids go back to school, the weather picks up dramatically, so my picture is of that flawless blue sky that is blessing us this week.

And a selection of catching up photos that I've taken over the past weeks since I went AWOL - too much work, kids at home and holidays, not to mention being glued to the Olympics.

Day 249 - Something you Wear

My trusty sunhat - yes I know it's turquoise, like the rest of my wardrobe :)

Day 244 - Through a Window

Not taken on the right day but hey!  Taken as we were leaving Spain!

Day 243 - Thriving

The daisies in my garden are as tall as me!!

We were on holiday and this is my Picture of the Day
