Well, what can I say, my son has now had his 3rd offer for a university place. The email arrived this afternoon. Edge Hill, Bradford and now Bedfordshire.
When we sent the application to UCAS we were no doubt like other families venturing into this journey, nervous and hoping at least one offer came through, now he has 3 and amazingly it is the 3 universities he is most interested in.
I have a long drive on Saturday as Bedfordshire's open day is that day. 250 miles there, leaving at around 4.30 in the morning to ensure we get there for the start time of 9.30. Matchsticks packed already to hold my eyelids open.
The saga with the rabbits has entered a new stage. Now that I have removed all the old plants and tidied up the garden there isn't any food for them. They arrived this morning, hunted around for a good 10 minutes, then left empty handed. I am expecting to see them coming through the garden with their suitcases and pushing a barrow full of furniture as they move home to find a new food source.
I think it is going to be a long winter for them now all my neighbors have tidied their gardens. Maybe my plan to relocate them won't be needed, fingers crossed.
This upload was taken earlier on this year whilst out with a few friends on a trip to Whitley Bay and Tynemouth early in the morning.
I really liked how I was able to frame it with the sun rising on one side and the lighthouse on the other. I kept waiting for the lighthouse to clock out as its nightshift was over and the sun was coming up to do its job for the day.
Once again we have arrived at the time of the year when the amazing sunrises begin to appear.
Cold, fresh mornings where the humble early morning photographer ventures out to capture the beginning of a new day, using a tripod, not only due to the lengthy exposures, but also because they are shivering violently whilst frost forms on their eyebrows. They wait for the show to play itself out, hoping they catch that perfect moment when the sky begins to display it's beautiful colour's, as if God himself were filling in the blanks. Truly the best time of the day.
Thanks for looking and for any comments.
P.S. I have uploaded a letterbox version.
