Tophill Low

We went to Tophill Low today. The top picture is a Great Crested Grebe on the 'O' reservoir. Katie and Harry were both thrilled to see a hedgehog for the first time, sadly, because hedgehogs are nocturnal, this one is probably poorly.

He's a baby, He's a baby

Katie left her dolls pram in the conservatory, naturally Boozer had to sleep in it, but given his size it's a wonder it's still in one piece!

I was on a training course today, learning how to investigate complaints, it was ok. At the beginning of the course, as part of the old 'ice breaking' routine, we were asked to garner 3 facts from 3 different people and then feed them back to the group. People were coming up with interesting facts like where they went on holiday and what they did in their spare time. One woman commented that she did the ironing in her spare time and this caused quite a reaction amongst the participants, as did the person who said they did something called 'body combat'. I happened to mention that I had a blog; this was met with complete silence, not a flicker, a real tumbleweed moment. Oh well, nice to know I'm doing something popular!

We went to Filey Brigg today, after all the recent rainy weather, it was lovely. Everyone had a great time until Katie went full length into a rock pool. It was time to go home then!

Self Portrait (This is me!)

Well, this is the last day of Robert's challenge and it has been a challenge, mainly to find the time! I have enjoyed it and visiting all the other blogs has also been a challenge. Nice to meet so many new people, but with the time difference, by the time I got to a lot of the blogs it was difficult to find anything original to say! So if some of my comments have appeared a little brief or even strange, forgive me, I did my best! I'm sure I will meet some of you again.

How do I relax?

It's Robert's challenge, so it's only fair that I should copy him and go for music as my relaxation method of choice. 10 smartie points for the first person to name all the albums!

A view from the home!

I may be using an element of poetic license here with Robert's photo challenge, because it said a view from in your home. The top photo was taken from my garden, so that's pretty close isn't it?
This was taken from my conservatory so technically that's in my home. It's not the squirell as such that's significant, just wildlife in general. We live in the middle of a big city, but we still get Squirrels and foxes and a fantastic selection of birds. So I give you my 2 favourite views from my house.

Front Door

It's not much of a front door but it's the only one I've got.

The cooker hood, proudly fitted by myself, and before Quilly says anything it's the photo that's crooked!

The oil burner, used more often after I've been cooking

Can you spot the odd one out?

Mail Box?

Robert over at is hosting a photo challenge, today it's a photo of your mail box. If you want to join in, or find out what the rest of the photo challenges are, head over to see him. The red one is where I post my mail, it's at the top of our street, the tatty brass one is where my mail gets posted, you may see more of this later in the week.

Lazy blogging

I do have breaks from blogging occasionally, but I still take photographs. This one was taken in February this year at Paull, looking out onto the River Humber. I think it has an eerie quality.

Still not functioning fully, hopefully will get back to some sense of normality at the weekend.

1st day at school

I haven't got any image manipulation tools on my new computer yet, so this is a little pale. What with work and family commitments it is going to take me a while to get back to normal, bear with me.
