Perfect Evening
December 28, 2009

I am spending this evening (Sunday) in front of a roaring log fire, watching Top Gear, and drinking Joe’s mum’s homemade sloe gin.  This is good.


One Candle
December 21, 2009

We held the first of David’s two birthday parties this evening.  I made little cakes with the word “one” written on in different languages and colours, instead of a big cake.  He had a lovely time, loved all his presents, and passed out in the car on the way home!

My Addiction
December 19, 2009

I wrote a post over at Barefoot in the Kitchen the other day about my addiction to Diet Coke.  This is one of the shots I took to accompany it.

Eric, being only ten months old, has never seen snow before.  It drove him crazy.  The flat looks like a bomb has hit it, but we’re all still in once piece!

River Thames at Night
December 13, 2009

A long-exposure shot of the River Thames, taken without a tripod (go me!) when we went down to London yesterday.  The photography conditions were absolutely perfect all day, and this is by far my favourite picture.

Bus Stop, Stratford upon Avon
December 11, 2009

I took my camera and tripod to Stratford yesterday evening to shoot some Christmas lights.  Didn’t get many pictures, due to the cold and grumpy boys I had to drag with me, but here’s my absolute favourite.  (Guess who moaned about the cold more!)

This beautiful kitten-cat of mine, he’s a very clean kitten with very long whiskers and a little pink tongue.  He let me spend at least ten minutes taking photos yesterday evening: that’s about a zillion times his usual attention span.

Monochrome Baubles
December 6, 2009

I love Christmas.  More specifically, I love Advent.  I love the anticipation, the build-up to Christmas.  This isn’t our tree, because we haven’t kitten-proofed sufficiently to buy it yet, but I can’t wait to get it and decorate it and then take hundreds upon hundreds of photos of it.  That’s the best part.

Not Looking
December 3, 2009

This is my beautiful ginger boy in the bathroom after David’s bath this afternoon.  He spent ages watching the drops of water run down the shower screen.

Striped Long Socks
December 2, 2009

I love these socks.  They’re warm and comfortable and best of all, STRIPEY!
