Thanks for dropping by. All clicks and comments very much appreciated. Smile

Thank you for visiting. I love seeing all your photos and hope you like mine.

  • Pooped

    We've been decorating all week and we're worn out. Frostie didn't help at all so I've no idea why he's so tired.

  • Heybridge Basin

    Went for our first "proper" day out today, to Heybridge Basin, Maldon, Essex. I've often snapped these old wrecks but they're finally sinking into the mud and rotting away. Quite sad really, but it was a lovely trip. And we had fish and chips. :) ...

  • Frostie TV

    Poor Frostie had to be kept in for a week as he had a poor paw. He didn't enjoy it one bit, him being an outdoor cat, but I found some videos for cats on YouTube and he really liked the bird ones. Once he found that he couldn't actually chase them ...

  • Fly

    I quite often see pics of flies in the gallery. They're pretty ugly things, but this one was just sitting around yesterday so I grabbed it while I could.

  • Awake / Asleep

    A lovely procession of swans on the lake today, just drifting in the middle. Then all at once, they fell asleep. Really cute. :)

  • Another Fine Mess

    This is what happens when you iron a polyester T-shirt with a very hot iron. The stuff peeled off of the iron eventually leaving these rather attractive bits of stuff, but the T was history.

  • More Swans

    I liked this swan because it had its foot stuck up its back and it looked as if it was signalling to go left. Everyone else was just doing their own thing too. Phew, hot walk today.

  • Tidying up the Garden

    We've cut down a very big, twiggy bush and re-arranged some of our other plants. I hope they survive. We're not really green-fingered folk and we quite often have to dig up dead things.

  • Fire Drill

    Not often you see the LFB going through their paces in the local park. But with all the fires around in this hot weather, it's a good place to do it.

  • Swans and Geese

    The wind is so high today on the lakes that the swan and geese families have taken to the grass for a bit of R&R and general pecking around.

  • Open Again :-)

    Hurrah, the tea hut in the park is open again. Although the park is quite big, it wasn't the same without the tea hut. Had an ice cream with a flake in it. :)
