P365 – Day 197 – date night (16/07/2011)

Today was a very busy one. Juniordwarf had his swimming lesson in the morning, and we went to see our friends at their lovely coffee shop for morning tea. Two Metre Tall held a mid-winter Farm Bar, so we went up there for lunch and some ale and cider,...

P365 – Day 196 – and there was snow (15/07/2011)

It’s been very cold and wintery this week. The tops of the hills have been covered with snow, and earlier in the week people were even snowed in. The Mountain always looks glorious topped with snow, especially on the beautiful, clear sunny days – or rather, the times during...

P365 – Day 191 – winter

Here are some photos I took today while we were out driving in the winter weather. At Hamilton Styx River overflowing at Bushy Park That is snow falling on the windscreen River Derwent...

P365 – Day 190 – puddles (9/7/2011)

In the depths of a wintery afternoon, feeling like I might never shake this state of melancholy I have recently found myself experiencing,  I had to get out of the house. Freezing, windy and wet. Not anyone’s idea of a good time to take a leisurely Saturday afternoon stroll....

P365 – Day 185 – winter trees

It’s winter. The trees have lost their leaves. I feel I should write some evocative words about winter and bare trees and overcast days, but after another day of trawling through files for answers I don’t think I’m going to find, the words aren’t there. Maybe I need to...

P365 – Day 180 – closeup #3 – ice

Well if yesterday was cold, today was freezing. I didn’t check the temperature outside when we left home, but a reasonable guess, based on the weather report, was about -2 degrees. This is the ice on the car windscreen. I like this one. It reminds me of the moon....

P365 – Day 175 hand cream (24/06/2011)

One of the suggestions for doing a 365/Photo a Day Project is to take photos of the little things that are part of your life that you don’t really pay much attention to. So here is the hand cream that I have on my desk at work. The skin...

P365 – Day 174 washing, washing and more washing

Once of the things I like least about winter is how much harder it is to get my washing done. I do most of my and Juniordwarf’s washing on Tuesdays when I’m home with Juniordwarf. Slabs is responsible for doing his own and occasionally Juniordwarf’s. Juniordwarf helps me. He...

P365 – Day 165 school holiday fun

This is the second week of school holidays. Because Juniordwarf is only in school three days a week, there’s only three days we have to cover each week, so Slabs and I each have taken a day off work and my mother has kindly agreed to look after Juniordwarf...
