Weekly Photo Challenge – Ooh shiny!

I did have to giggle reading this week’s challenge, pretty things that distract me. Andrea Bagley stated it was butterflies that distract her, and I get that I really do, and I will admit to watching and sometimes chasing butterflies as well. However, when I look through my images two things stand out, animals and…

The last one is…

Weekly Photo Challenge – Order

I used to hate chaos and demanded complete order and control, and cleanliness, and then I had children! Things might have seemed messy to some, but there was still an order to it. Once I had kids, my reins slackened a little (for my own sanity) and now I actually find it all quite funny……….what…

As far as friends go, personally I don’t think you can beat a dog…..faithful, loyal and unquestioning, unconditional ALWAYS by your side, and…

This week’s WPC theme is evanescent.  So many things can be thought of as fleeting; even life if you think about it. But today I am using a seasonal sort of fleeting, the quickly fading colour of Autumn leaves as…
