Dunno about anyone else but "about 3" is around 3pm - it's coming up to 3.45pm and the people who are coming for photos still haven't turned up - oddly enough I'm not too impressed........

I bet not, set Woody on them.
3 is actually the early hours of the morning so they might turn up when you are in bed lol, 1500 is actually in the afternoon
Oh right - maybe next time, if there is a next time, I'll stick to the 24 hour clock.
I'm half inclined to pretend not to be in if they turn up - gone 4pm now and still not a peep. I'm taking anemone photos instead
Woody might struggle against two adults and a kiddie but he'd certainly try!
Seems like it's a photo finish.

Deffo do it Ali. They show no respect................give then none!
They did arrive in the end at 4pm - they've just gone. Unfortunately I happened to be in the window when they arrived and they spotted me.
i would have stood there for about 30 minutes just looking at them, and then answered the door.
I hope they had a good excuse Alison. I hate lateness. I'd have found it hard not to be "off" with them after all that. I hope it's worth it to you.

Quite so, lets get with it.
One of my bug bears too, I hate un-punctual people, especially as I always bust a gut to get an appointment on time......
Well I guess having a 2 year old that was asleep is a pretty good excuse but a message saying they'd be late would have been good.
With the room cleared and background paper down I could have done some SPs whilst I waited but sod's law would stepped in and they'd have arrived whilst I was dressed up in PVC or something equally interesting
I've not looked at the pics yet - maybe later on this evening but hopefully they'll be fine (the usual worry that I'm crap and every family kiddie shoot I've done has produced perfectly good images so I really needn't worry!).
I love the idea of just standing there for half an hour looking at them but nah - I don't think I could have done that
I did at least take some anemone pics while I was waiting and they came out nicely - might enter one in the current EPZ competition.....
you should charge them for the extra hour!

Would be nice but I'll consider it a lesson learned and inform further visitors have to turn up on time or at least call me and tell me why they're running late. I don't intend to do non-stop kiddie pics - I seem to have a bit of a run of them at the moment - but they make an entertaining diversion from the usual stuff
