The Fight

It has been an incredibly lazy day today, with timings all out (get up at 10.45, breakfast at 11.30, lunch at 3) and I now feel dozy and uninspired. I guess I needed a sleepy day, and the light covering of snow meant that I didn’t feel a need to go out anywhere.

Jenny begged for a snowball fight companion, but I argued that I had had a go yesterday after school, so Mr Angelfeet volunteered, leaving me as official photographer (oh, such a burden!), comfortable in the warmth of the kitchen, shooting through the window. I got to use my 70mm-300mm lens and the fangley-doo-da setting on my camera that shoots continuous mode.DSC00248

Softly on the hair of my beloved

It’s not snow-day snow, but we woke up this morning to fluffy flakes floating down past the window. It was still dark when I went out and took this photo by the light of the security lamp. I’m chuffed to have got an image before it melted.


I had to clear snow from the car, but none of it had settled on the roads or pavements.  The children at the school where I work were all looking forward to playing in the snow after school, but I was a little sad for them, because I knew that there would be nothing to see later.

I’m sure there will be more this winter.

The sunflowers at home have already started to “go over”. Perhaps it’s the sea air that keeps this one going.

Room with a View


No chance at all to take photos today, as I was busy with school work in the morning and therapy work in the afternoon through to 7.30 p.m.

This was taken on Snowy Monday, a week ago, at Standen House. I can’t wait to go back, take a seat in this conservatory and admire the view.

(I’m really behind on looking at and commenting on all you other lovely people’s blogs, so forgive me. I will catch up, I promise. )
