Photo taken in the Botanical Gardens in January on a very hot day. Now it is well and truly Autumn, the conkers are on the drive, note to self don't go down the drive in bare feet. The shadows are much longer, it's amazing how quickly the Sun looses it heat.
Dear Dave in the geraniums, he died last year and said we wouldn't get another cat. We have been offered a part Maine Coon male cat, but are dithering as only we can do, whether to take him or not.
The beach in all 
it's glory, early one summer's morning. I walk there more often now that have Thursdays off.
My photography has shown no real improvement, but it amuses me. I have got myself in mud, sludge and swamp, trying to get the perfect photo.
Baking is not so much of a joy, since the "men" of the house seem to hoover everything up, and AJ doesn't live at home anymore. I made crackers on Thursday night, a trial in economy, don't bother, it might have worked out cheaper, if they hadn't been eaten by Friday night.
I have got myself under way, my sister has re-started her blog on Wordpress, she is Tessacontessa, it is a foodie blog, as I have said before she is a brilliant cook, even I am looking forward to her next post. Not sure I'm keen on what she does with figs, but I'm sure it'll be interesting. Babs.

I don't believe it

I don't believe I have been away this long. Life has really been hectic, and I have felt I have had nothing to say. I am going to start again with fresh impetus, and hope in my heart. 
So I'll throw some photos in and away we go. That was interesting not the old way of putting on photos.

Still walking on the beach, note,  I hope someone will read this. The duck photo was to show I still try and get out and take photos of the wildlife.
This will do for now, but it a start, and hopefully it will continue.

300th post

the full moon, 
one very well fed Pukeho
Dave can be quite judgemental
Down at the Estuary
Pukeho in the reeds
I haven't being doing much, but taking photos with Matt's camera. Although I did go to the market, and bought something so kitsch, it's ugly,  beautiful in it's own way. So I'll do another post just to show you, this is how I hope to start blogging again, I decided my hiatus is at an end and I should keep blogging. Aunt Bee.

Teenager cattle intimidate old woman, should they have been wearing hoodies.

The stare says it all.
I was imaging a study of bullocks in a field, not intimidation by cattle
I moved back to leave, they followed to the fence.

How a different (borrowed) camera can perk one up a bit.

My beloved doll Kathleen, this for you Tess.
taken yesterday last day of Autumn
Taken 1st June, first day of winter, 7.30am, it was freezing.
Dave sleeps with Basil, they both work the night shift.
I have borrowed Matt (at work) camera, might buy, so I have actually updated my blog.
The camera has given me a boost I think, I did get up at 7 this morning to take photos in the park, so tomorrow who knows what, your'll get. Love Babs Ace photographer,(sort of).

No, really I don't look this good.

Using the app but giving it a 70's vibe, my best years I think, not that I remember them.
More lights from the Sensory Room it's for the clients but I love them.
This me after using a photo shop app on my phone......not a great advert for the app.
These small things give me pleasure the LED lights at the Sensory room and playing silly buggers with my phone. I'm off to watch a double episode of the The Blacklist, love this show. If there are any British people reading this, I must say I'm hooked on the The Great British Sewing Bee, found it on Youtube after reading about it in an English paper. Love, love it, have watched up to S2 E5.Can't wait for the next episode, it's the sort of programme we will never get here anymore, the dreaded Scandinavian thriller is worming it's way in here, and the dysfunctional policeman/woman hunting a serial killer type show.  Am I getting old, no don't answer...............and there I said I love The Blacklist, but that's American as if that explains all. Love Aunt Bee.
