Orange and Cactus

A little shot from our kitchen table, making the most of the late afternoon sun.  Yes, we had sun today!

 Wet and 
Distraction Play!
This afternoon with its grey and wet weather, brought us indoors to a log fire and sorting through my mood-books, drawing and colouring.  Must note that R preserved in the garden and continued to plant away!

Mouses Back

Our small spare room has been decorated and carpeted, looking forward to adding some finishing touches.  We opted for a dark farrow and ball colour, even though the room is small single room.  We love the results and has already been used by our lovely overnight guest L!

Trying to find something to photograph as it is week two of being housebound, but not complaining as I am grateful for many things.  Currently pondering the lives of those that touch ours to inspire, challenge, encourage and affirm.  MC, so gutted.

Thank you

Thank you for your kind comments and for the new followers that have joined.  I really appreciated it, especially over this last week of not really getting out or having very little energy.  These shots of L & C were taken in the lobby of our hotel.  I am grateful that my knee gave in after our holiday.

Window Table

Still not very mobile, but over the weekend we did manage to leave the house.  We started Sunday at 8.00am with a visit to the hospital to have my MRI scan.  Then we had a lovely family lunch with R's parents and siblings.  I love this kitchen window area in my parents in law's home.

Beach Time in Crete

It is safe to say that I was a little obsessed with these sun-loungers.  We enjoyed the fact that the beach was minutes from our hotel.  Though the sun was shining we choose to paddle and not swim!

Still Life Friday - Aubergine

Another still life to add to my series.  I shot this before the knee gave in on me!  Have a lovely weekend, hope to be on form next week.

Visting Crete

Currently shooting portrait a lot!
Today we spent the best part of the morning in A&E.  I have had trouble with my knee for the last few years, I've lapsed on having regular phyiso which has resulted in a torn cartilage.  On crutches with half unpacked suitcases and dirty washing to deal with.  R has a busy week at work, so we are really calling in favours.  I have resigned to basic meals -pop in the oven options, think jacket potatoes, tinned sweetcorn and chicken nuggets!  Tonight we are having a stir fry as R was back early, tomorrow defrosting a chilli with, you guessed it jacket potatoes again!

Home again

We are back.  The run up to leaving for Crete was a little manic, hence my absence.  If you would be kind enough to bear with me, as I have a few 'Holiday' snaps I would love to share over the next few days.  Also I have had the smallest room in the house painted in a fairly dark colour perfect for a still life shot that I will share this week.  Hope that you are having a lovely Easter Break.  What have you been up to?
