    Typical... It was stunningly gorgeous this morning when I went shopping, but I didn't have a camera with me, not even my phone as I had forgotten it. When I got home, had a quick lunch and went out again, it was grey. :( Still, there was promise of a bit more light before the evening, which did eventually materialise, albeit in a more muted form.

    So I had a lot of trouble today with getting sharp, in-focus shots. The cold was affecting my hands I think. Anyway, I did get out of the house, and I did take some pictures, which gives me hope for the rest of the year, given how painful my fractures were at the end of last year. So here's my submission to this thread.

    I know, this one's a bit mad. But I was messing around with Fizzy yesterday as part of my project looking at her visual issues (she has problems decoding visual info which makes reading very slow for her) and she said that if she hadn't had these problems we might not have signed her up for netball (doctor wanted her to try a sport that required rapid eye movement to develop her ability to scan things more quickly) and then she might not have realised how good at it she was. I was so pleased that she was able to find something positive in it all when I just worry that she'll fall behind. I think on balance her personality will win her through though! This is straight out of camera having shot a flash/slow shutter/zoom combo to see what might happen. Weird stuff happened!

    I am sorry that some people did not realise that the theme had started when it was not moved to this thread This was due to a misunderstanding for which I apologise. Anyway the recommended way .in future is for the originator to start it in the lounge and report it immediately - explaining that it should go into this forum and be made a sticky etc - when any mod on duty will pick it up and move it,

    That said we have six days left to get any final entries in. As this includes a weekend I am hoping for a last minute rush

    Oh, and please make sure the title starts with "xxx Monthly Theme: ", so that plonkers like me realise what it is. :oops:

    Would an 'XXX Monthly Theme' be a little inappropriate for viewing whilst at work?

    Cheers, Jeff

    Oh the indignity of it all - one moment we are their pride and joy, even served with scones as atreat but the next reduced to mere paperweights!

    I do hope they treat the next batch better

    Technically a photo (maybe), it's a screenshot of a countdown to retirement app that I've had running on my phone for the past couple of years! You could say my glass is full, full of hope for the future and the next part of my life. Trepidation also. After taking into account leave and days in lieu I have 10 weeks left at work and I really should be looking for a job.

    More likely hoping you'll fall for that trick and then attacking you!

    Hehe :) In her defence, she loves the bed, and she was basically too warm, so rolled out onto the sofa.

    Yeh, we know she's spoiled.

    You can't spoil a cat. Absolutely nothing you can do for them is too much. At least, that's the way they see it. :)
