I haven’t blogged or uploaded any images for a few days even though I have hundreds that need editing! I want to blog about the last few days but can’t yet. We have been through every emotion you can imagine from fear to frustration from tears to gratitude. Mum is still with us but is on ‘End of Life care plan’. She is very ill and veers from lucidity to bizarre ramblings and hallucinations. BUT and its a big but – friends and family are there for all of us. It means so much to know you have the protection and concern of others to cushion you. There are so many people who have helped. Our lives are on hold at the minute and we are coping a day at a time. This afternoon I received a beautiful arrangement of flowers from special friends and then went for a walk to the RSPB with my long suffering and wonderful husband. Who knows what the next few days will bring but I do know I’m lucky in so many ways and that I am fortunate to have such wonderful family and friends x
A random array of images – everything from Tommy to Northern Rocks x
Tommy went for a cast for his ‘new arm’ last week xx
Walking and taking photographs in the afternoon continues to help. This afternoon we saw a Great Crested Grebe with its young on its back. They look like little aliens.
In between working, editing and visiting I spent some time in the garden!
Bit of a ‘catch up’ today as yesterday’s post was for the TSA to get the Learning Carnival photographs up!
Sunday was Rosa’s 3rd birthday party
Tuesday was a visit to RSPB Old Moor just for half an hour – the bird of paradise flowers were brought back by Amie from Gran Canaria – very impressed!
You can purchase images from the above site
Tommy is now 8th months old – and he’s just gorgeous!
Beautiful spring day – a walk around RSPB Old Moor – signs of new life everywhere.
4th April saw the wedding of old friend – we went to school together over 40 years ago! He wanted an image with the town hall tower in the background.
5th April – Easter Sunday was a family day and a walk around the RSPB with cousins and children
Easter Monday – a lovely early morning stroll taking photos of blossom.
Very tired today – think that last week is catching up with me 🙂
Single flower from a plant bought at B&Q this morning.

As I mentioned in an earlier post, we are fortunate to live near an RSPB site and so have a wonderful range of birds in our garden. Today the Thrush reappeared – haven’t seen these for a while so went upstairs to get my camera and when I returned our Woodpecker, who also hasn’t visited for a while, was feeding on the fat square. A lucky coincidence as I already had my camera – they are very nervy and will fly off if you move too much.
If you are using a zoom lens remember your shutter speed must be at least equal to your focal length – ie if its a 200mm zoom make sure your shutter speed is well above 1/200
