Last day of the holidays today 😦
So, this Christmas holidays are here! No more work for two whole weeks! woop woop!
Today I went to visit my grandad who has been poorly but is now out of hospital. I had decided I was shooting this shot, but I didn’t anticipate my grandma having a much better teapot that I had brought with me, so I abandoned mine and went with hers.
On the way home there was a glorious sunset but I was driving and the view in front of the sunset wasn’t inspiring so I didn’t snap it. It has made me want to try for sunsets whilst I am off though! ^_^
Today the weather has been rather miserable. After a heat wave comes a storm, and we have had storms and heavy rain on and off all day. It is very humid (my decision to do pilates at 4pm was not one of my finest) however despite this I have managed to have a productive day.
I got up and sorted out some images I wanted to print out for various photo frames around the house, I cleaned the kitchen, painted my nails (rare occurrence), had a nap (regular occurrence), did pilates, then casually thought about today’s photo.
I don’t know if it’s the rain, or the fact I’ve had a little run of inspiration but I couldn’t think of anything to do. I was in effect “trapped” inside the house which might have hindered my creative juices (I get cabin fever very easily, and love love love being outside).
Tried various idea with these orchids. Felt bad for cutting them from the plant but it is on it’s way out. It’s had a good running though as my mum bought it me for my birthday way back in January and I’m hoping it will grow back (I seem to be the Queen of regrowing orchid plants).
The amount of times I have typed “coup” instead of cup.
Anyway, sealed a deal this week (photographically speaking) and kB has got the green light to start writing up his thesis, so we went out for sushi treat tea and then came back and watched GoT and I tried Rekorderlig Passionfruit. It was most agreeable.
Outside of work, this week has been full of the victories. Most appropriate.
In a shocking turn of events this weeks “abstract Tuesday” shot was taken on a Wednesday :-O
Reason being that yesterday was sunny and nice and the rest of the next two weeks look set to be miserable and cloudy, so one must embrace the sun where one can.
Somehow I managed to resist eating Jaffa Cakes whilst taking this.
