Big Sister

This weekend, over on our site Weekly Prompts, my partner GC and I chose SPHERE as the Saturday Photo Challenge.

Last year, on my birthday, my son gave me this ornamental globe of the World. “Now you can see where all your blogging friends are!”

Now wouldn’t that be fun, having your very own looking glass, and having the ability to zoom in like Google Earth and watch what everyone is doing at any given time instead of reading about it. Big sister is watching you, Oh, wait a minute that’s why we have satellites!   Read More…

The Photo Challenge this weekend from Weekly Prompts, the site I share with my partner GC is WINGS.  

My personal offering to our photo challenge is a mixed bag of wings, both in and out of view!

During a rare break from the heavy rain last week,  I enjoyed a morning walk around the Tarn. This local lake is situated close to Leeds and Bradford Airport, Yorkshire, England. The western end of the longest runway runs just above the northern edge of the lake.

Junking

The joy of junking comes not only from a great find, but also from that moment when you figure out how to breathe new life into an old piece.” ~ Unknown.

This weekend the photo challenge from GC’s and my site Weekly Prompts is JUNK.

This is my own response to the challenge.

Each month I browse the IT magazine section in the newsagents and choose the one that appears to be the most interesting. This month I chose ‘WebUser’, mainly because of the recycling ideas.

When I’m due a mobile phone upgrade (cell phone) I normally hang on to the old one; it’s  a second browser, a spare camera, or an audio recording device.

What you do with your old equipment, do you find another use or is it simply junk?

Earlier this week, youngest daughter Sophie (pictured below) and I spent an enjoyable hour or so wandering around Decoporium, an underground junk shop. The shop is situated in the Thorp Arch Retail Park, not far from Wetherby Racecourse in Yorkshire England and is approximately forty minute’s drive from my home.

It’s 1929 and it’s Christmas

Once again I’m adding another Advent Continuesentry  to our Photo Challenge at  Weekly Prompts, the site I share with GC. You may remember that Gerry and I extended our Advent photo challenge right up until Christmas Eve. Check it out.  This weekend another Advent Challenge will be added.

My personal challenge is to see how many posts I can link to the Advent challenges before Christmas eventually arrives!

Last Saturday I visited Harewood House with my eldest daughter Victoria. Harewood is the home of the Earl and Countess of Harewood and for the second year running the house is open to the public for the Christmas period. This year the theme is Christmas Dreams 1920s style.
