In blog news, all blog posts from my other blog are now integrated here. Hopefully the transition was seamless. I'm very excited about being able to share everything in one place now - although I'm not sure what to do about the name, should I come up with a new one for the new combined blog, or stick with the one I have?
Anyway, back to the photo challenge! On day 38, I noticed on the drive home that the moon was particularly large and bright. It's something that happens more often these days, me noticing things that I normally wouldn't because I'm looking for things to photograph for the day. There's a particularly nice tree on the way to work that I'd like to share with you, but it's halfway down a 60mph road and I'm yet to master driving that fast whilst taking a photo! Back to the moon. I tried to photograph it, but I'm still not clued up on my camera, and the only way I could see it was by hanging out of my bedroom window and it was cold! But, check out my photo - I managed to capture not one, not two, but three moons! Which ones the real one?
Day 39 shows me attempting to reduce the washing mountain that has built up in our house. This was load 3 and I've done 3 more since, and I'm still not happy to photograph the washing mountain to show you - which doesn't make it sound great but progress is progress!
Day 40 and we finally got some snow. Not enough to make a snowman, but enough for me to get excited when it started. There was more at work so I got to play in the car park on the way back from the pub which was probably enough for me (especially as I forgot my gloves!).
Day 41 is what happens when you forget to get meat out of the freezer, and you don't believe in using the microwave to defrost meat - you throw together whatever is in your freezer that you can cook from frozen. Leads to a bit of a bizarre dinner but it saved us from takeaway.
Day 42, Ian arrived home with flowers for me, to celebrate six months of marriage. There were quite a lot of flowers (all purple because he knows me well), and the majority are in a large vase, but this vase that we got as a wedding gift is much smaller so only has 3 sprigs in it, but I think it's extra pretty because the blue contrasts nicely with the flowers.
In order to get the cash for the flowers, Ian popped into Sainsburys and picked up some baked goodies and got cashback. He chose these ones because he thought they looked amusing. What do you think?
Yesterday I was sorting through one of my many 'things to sort' boxes and found some interesting goodies. An odd sock, some top trumps, Ian's old passport, and lots of rolls of film that appear to be used but Ian has no recollection of what's on them. So, this weekend I get to take them to be developed and hope there is nothing shady on there from his past!
Hope everyone else is having a good week! And Happy Valentines Day!
