    It's been a lovely sunny, toasty day so I went off to the park at lunchtime to see if I could find the swans. This time they were out on the grass snoozing but happily did wake up and I spent a bit of time just standing watching them.

    Alas I didn't take any snaps on the mobile today - just nothing inspiring to see on my walk into town and back at lunchtime - not quite sure why. I did at least grab a handful of grass from the verge when got home and popped them next to my led lig...

    I commented to someone yesterday that there is a gas mask hanging on my coat rack. He found it surprising so I took a snap this morning before I left from work to show what hangs up there. The mask is in the khaki bag along with big black gauntlets...

    Sunday often isn't a good day for taking snaps on the mobile. Today I spent from 10am to 2pm working in the garden and then, after a break, trundled off to visit dad at the care home. I walked home and one route is 20 minutes tramping along one str...

    Most Saturdays I bumble off out for the day and very often I have time to kill waiting for my bus. I take the opportunity to take random snaps around town though there comes a point when I keep taking pics of the same old stuff. Still, the fountain...

    I lurked a while behind the office this lunchtime - back from my wanderings too early and reluctant to go back in. There's not a lot to take pics of round there - the clematis is pretty much done and that's about it at the moment. At least I manag...

    Presumably once upon a time there was a bicycle attached to this lock :)

    I realised this evening that the only photo taken on the mobile today was of a not terribly inspiring puddle - well it's been raining all day and I've been totally uninspired. So I chose one of my bits of dead vegetation and decided to see what I co...

    My desk has quite a few plastic toys on it and I suddenly realised this afternoon that the Cybermen were discussing the wisdom of upgrading Noddy.

    It's been a day of few photos - just a pic at the bus stop - yes, boring - and the evening spent adding bits to the new laptop that I can't live without. I'm certainly not putting all the plugins and wotnot back on - just the stuff that I use daily....

    Not a bad day as it turns out - a bit of the domestic stuff, ie shove the vacuum cleaner around a bit, a bit of tidying ie. shift stuff from one place to another. A bit of fly chasing in the garden and then in the afternoon sis picked me up and we w...

    I went to the RHS Malvern Spring Festival today and spent a few hours bumbling about. It's really just a glorified shop really -just endless trade stands although there was one marquee with the competition flowers and another with floral arrangement...

    The clouds were pretty good on my walk into town this evening so a few snaps were taken en route and played with in Snapseed as I walked. I added the frame later in PSP. Tomorrow I'm off to the Malvern Spring Show and have (almost) decided just to ...

    When I get off the bus in town in the mornings I cut through the churchyard round to the next stop. It's rather pleasant :) Hopefully tomorrow I will have my new laptop up and running and typing won't be such a battle

    Last of the crystal ball type pics today - well for the time being. It would appear that I can do double exposures with this app - I didn't mean to:)
