Catch up.....

Whoops....letting it slip again - naughty, naughty.

Time for a catch up on the last couple of days prompts at HS:MS.

Today's is 'Miniature'......couldn't find anything for a while but then discovered this laying unloved and unwanted in my DS's cupboard.

Next is yesterday's ' Collect'.....I collect troll beads and have recently put them on a necklace rather than a bracelet. Might start a collection of different colour beads now!

As always....thanks for looking!

Tiresome Thursday......

Woke up thinking it was Friday today......don't ya hate when that happens?

Here's today's take on the HS:MS prompt - Anxious.

Well my DS is a bit anxious now because it's the start of exam season....he's taken one Maths exam on Tuesday and has another one tomorrow!

Stand by your beds.......

Big visitation to our company today from Japan! Organised and chaos spring to's times like this when our MD really needs a secretary/PA not me trying to do reception duties with one hand and book hotel rooms/cars/buffets/dinner tables with the other!!!! Today's HS:MS prompt was 'confused' - well I confess right now I've cheated on this one and have taken this from t'internet. It's our world famous 'Magic Roundabout' here in Swindon - may look strange and does cause a lot of confusion to the new comer but it does work!!

Tuesday Treat.....

Decided to visit my local 'craft village' after work today and there I found my 'excitement' for today's HS:MS prompt!!

They were either £5 each or 3 for £ what's a girl to do ?!?!?

Thanks for your comments - they're much appreciated!

Bottomless laundry basket!

Does anyone else suffer from that syndrome? I spend all weekend washing and irong and come Monday morning it's bl**dy well full again!?!?!?

Today's HS:MS prompt is 'sad'....oh God, I thought, I'll have to ask the dog to look really sad so I can take his photo but's not necessary ........

This week we are going to focus on emotions. We prompt you with one word and you translate it the best you can through your lens. Try hard as you can not to use a human face to reflect that emotion. For instance - Sad. A dying plant, a messy corner, mucky windows (we all have them at one point!)

So here's my effort, my lovely Japanese Maple......not looking too happy today. :( It now has more leaves on the ground than on it's branches.

SPS - 03.11

Gorgeous day here in Sunny Swindon, except for waking up with a HUGE lump on the side of my neck where I must have been bitten yesterday evening when walking the dog!!

Nice, relaxing weekend in store. Nothing planned - just chilling!

Here's my SPS for today, which I changed to B&W in Elements to see if it improved me any!! LOL!!!
