Posts Tagged ‘new camera’

“Toto, I have a feeling we’re not in Kansas anymore.”
― L. Frank Baum

So in preparation for The Big Trip later this year, we treated ourselves to new cameras! The challenge when you’ve worked with a D-SLR for so long, is adapting to change and being able to manage a ‘simpler’ compact camera. We decided to opt for slightly more complicated and did some research and ended up with a couple of Panasonic Lumix cameras. They haven’t disappointed yet! If you’re looking for a point and shoot that’s fairly easy to use just let me know and I’ll talk you through what we have and how awesome they are…



It’s been a while since I blogged – since WordPress wants to charge me £240+ a year for the privilege of easy uploading and storing photos (I reached the free limit), I’ve been reluctant to blog. I miss it. I miss the daily photo challenge that I completed twice for a year each time. I miss the comments and interaction too!



Since it has been a while, the photos are a mismatch of lots of occasions from the last little while. Birds in the garden (noisy, messy but pretty), Sunsets, Abba tribute bands and garden flowers. The Abba tribute band was last night in the gardens of a house in a local village. The event was to celebrate the Church being in the village for three hundred years. We took picnics and had pretty tables in a beautiful Marquee. The band was good (Abba’s Angels) but we couldn’t see them because of all the dancing!



I’ve also been reading, lots. And I mean lots. I’ve been clearing my bookshelves, swapping books, selling them on, donating them – raising a few pennies to load my kindle with enough books to last me the Month long Holiday later this year! It has been lovely properly researching books, sending thousands of samples to my Kindle and wandering the book Aisles in shops to get inspiration. Summer reads =)

“Christmas waves a magic wand over this world, and behold, everything is softer and more beautiful. ”

Christmas has well and truly arrived, houses have been decorated and battling for car park spaces just to change christmas lights has been undertaken! The shops are overloaded with people buying more than ever and we’re sat in front of a cosy log fire (at my parents house) having decorated both our houses today and thoroughly christmassed everything. Our first Christmas in our own house together means lots of new decorations and our first Tree…! Maisy didn’t even notice, she was exhausted after  a day of bullying Buddy, but luckily we managed to persuade her to pose a little in front of the tree. It took some coaxing…and teaching…!
