    The other week I opened my big fat mouth and said that I used to make and sell teddy bears - that got me landed with trying to stitch a nose on this individual. I did it once, then unpicked it and tried again - I'm not sure it's much of an improveme...

    Again I ask for more hours in the evening - I just get to the point where I can't handle trying to fit everything in and simply give up. A three day weekend would be nice but that's not going to happen anytime soon! Still I did fit in a quick p...

    For once a pic taken outside - right outside the office in fact where I spotted this little doll perched up in a tree. I wonder how long she'll stay up there?

    Oops - I almost switched off and went to bed without uploading today. I've spent most of the day out pottering (treated myself to a day off) - the camera didn't get used at all until this evening when I decided I really should see if I could cobbl...

    A slight change of pace today as I took myself off to London for a potter. Sensibly I avoided all shopping areas and as usual headed off down to the river. That said the Christmas Market is up and running of course and that was absolutely chocca ...

    Another day to Slimbridge and the village panto - which was entertaining. However about 10 photos were taken - some from the bus which were rubbish - and a few of Daisy - which were also rubbish. At least my feet are in focus - no not the huge ...

    I took the afternoon off today with the plan to do useful stuff but instead wandered over to Tewkesbury for a bumble instead. I picked up a few items but there isn't much about. Well there was a very knackered old telephone in one shop but it was t...

    Another evening has gone by with my not doing all the things I'd planned to do - just as well I plan to take Friday afternoon off - maybe, if the sun doesn't shine, I'll knuckle down and get lots of 'stuff' done. Meanwhile I spent a few minutes ea...

    I popped into town today to get a case for the new Olympus and had a play with it, fisheye attached, on my potter back to the office. Not long now until I get a day out exploring and hopefully get to use it properly!

    Again I only did a handful of pics today - this time so I could have an entry for this weeks Black & White Challenge. The room is now full of dead foliage which needs to be put away sometime - but not tonight....... I was torn between two pics fo...

    Again all I've done this evening is a few smoke pics - I'm now exploring easy to use USB voice recorders - there's a lot to choose from...... Anyway this one looked a bit like Donnie Darko - just a shame it wasn't in focus!

    Oops - I forgot to do my blog on Sunday evening. However the only pics I took were more smoke ones - I've still got too much on and not enough time to concentrate on my photos - I shall attempt to rectify that soon! Meanwhile here's a pretty pi...

    I went off to Slimbridge again today and took along the little Olympus plus fisheye intending to take a few pics around Stroud first. However I was so laden down with bags and 'stuff' that it was all too much effort - another day. I got off the b...

    I'm still running round like a mad fool but with any luck I'll be able to stop in about half an hour and veg for a while. As the smoke stuff was all still set up - and I fortunately had half a stick left, I took a few more pics. I fancy this l...

    I'm afraid I'm still playing with the joss sticks - maybe I'll play one more evening and then do something else - it's far too easy to spend too much time messing about and getting nothing useful done. Still, the weekend is almost here so maybe I'...
