There is only one world; the world pressing against you at this minute. There is only one minute in which you are alive; this minute here and now. The only way to live is by accepting each minute as an unrepeatable miracle.

    I've been wanting to try some oil on water pics again for a few days and finally decided to do some this evening. Sadly I can't find the perfect dish I have to do them in - who knows where that has gone. I had two - kicked one down the stairs smash...

    The usual complaint - not enough time to get everything done - Xmas card still life being worked on, the Monday Night Challenge joined in with, looking for audio books for dad, this, that and the other and so it goes...... I did find this jug that...

    Since the weather was reasonable this morning (in between the fairly heavy showers), I took myself off into town and visited the charity shops I'd been to yesterday. The copper 'kettle' was still there - I since remembered that it's a Samovar - ne...

    Another trip to Slimbridge today and as usual by the time I got home I really didn't feel much like doing any photos. I took a few snaps whilst out but none of any consequence so as the top of the bus was empty I figured I'd play with the camera. ...

    Phew - almost time to settle down and see if I can find something gormless to watch. As usual I've been flitting about doing this, that and the other and as usual only spared about 10 minutes to take a few pics of this lovely creature. As I keep sa...

    As predicted a good chunk of this evening has been spent sorting books for the Kobo - I must go through my DVDs next to see what's on them but there are enough on there for now to keep dad occupied - assuming he manages to operate the thing! I did...

    Much of this evening has been spent setting up a Kobo for dad - tomorrow will be spent sorting more books to put on it no doubt and then Saturday afternoon will be spent trying to get his head wrapped around how to use it! Still, at least I've man...

    I tried a few still life pics earlier but none were any good - probably because I knew I had a stack of stuff to get done this evening and really couldn't settle down to do a proper job. The trouble is I seem to have lots of stuff to do all the time...

    I had another trip over to Slimbridge straight from work this evening so didn't get home until about an hour ago. Needless to say I was not inclined to play much once I got back and I've still got stuff to do before I can grind to a halt. Tomorrow ...

    So that's another weekend gone and another where I've not got as much done as hoped. Of course it doesn't help being out pretty much all day on Saturday but I could have managed more today but kinda ran out of steam this afternoon. That said th...

    I was off out visiting dad again today so no time to do a great deal. I surfaced somewhat later than planned this morning so didn't get to the antiques fair as planned but did have a quick half hour to dash around the charity shops before grabbing t...

    I peruse my living room and it's a total tip - props and stuff all over the flipping place and one day I'll have time to tidy it all up - I just don't know when. I'll be out all day tomorrow again and trying to fit everything on Sunday before back t...

    I have neither time nor inclination to do much this evening but did have a brief play with my latest prop. Sadly you can't really see what it is in this photo but that blob leaning against the books is in fact a mummified rat - and he's really rathe...

    Wednesday afternoon was spent in Bristol - a walk through Millennium Square was very pleasant and then on to the Hippodrome to see Cats :) It's an excellent show - front row seats and lots of attention from the cats that came up and down the steps...

    A very quick, and early, blog entry tonight as I must tidy myself up as I'm due to be picked up shortly and shooting off out. I'm off to Bristol tomorrow to see Cats so I thought this chap would be an appropriate upload :)
