More Rocks

By Maddie
another one im afraid of rocks and ledges.

Today was going ok, until the postman arrived with some cables that attach to my daughters battery operated bike.

I connected the leads to the battery
and then thought i had better phone the manufactuers to check i had done it right.

I hadnt, so i took off one lead then went to pull off the other and it went up in flames, the chap was still on the phone , i swore a little, to which he replied " are you ok" i said no its on fire,so i stamped on it and promptly went and put my finger under the tap, as i had some melted wire on it.

I said the connector and wires have totally had it, so he would have to send me some more, which he said he would.
A while later he phoned me back and said that he would send me another battery with the wire already fitted and he hoped my finger was ok.

so a bit of a result i have a spare battery,oh and a burnt finger lol

thanks for your time.

WOW! What is happening over there Maddie? It is one thing after another. I hope you are okay. At least you have photography to enjoy (assuming you keep your wellies on - LOL!)

This is another good view with low light. Just think about getting more of these when troubles strike!

Ouch Maddie! Have a cuppa and put your feet up; it's sure not been your week.

I love the light in this and how it picks out detail in the foreground.

Wow what a week you have had. It never rains but it pours!! I hope you have recovered from it all. At least the wellies survived, a most important part of your kit :o)

Great shot Maddie, and put your feet up for the rest of the week lol.

I'd just stick to the photography if I were you. You can't seem to do anything wrong there. Hope your finger heals quickly.
