When vanity is clearly not an option.......... crank up the contrast!

Well hello again. I can hear the audible groans now as mobloggers around the world sigh.

Its been 5 years, can you believe it ? since mad Nige got some of us to join him in a daily self portrait, alledgedly for a whole 365 days. So I thought it would be interesting to compare/contrast ( just like an english essay) then and now.

I'm not going to make any grand promises about sticking it out to the end and I'm already wondering whether this is a daft thing to do, but alot has happened in the last five years.

I originally started this along with nige and a few others back in June 2007 and as I discovered it would prove much more difficult than I had anticipated. I enjoyed it all very much and I think at the time my portrait photography got better.

ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh ......JUMP!

Thought I would go take the girls down to the seashore to see if the tide really was that high.
Well it was but it was also a lovely day, beautiful sunshine and a force 10 wind.......Grrrrrrrrrrr

Thought, hey do a jump, a dailyme, two birds, one stone an all that. NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

Small crowd starts to congregate as nutty mother with two smallish girls, obviously not wearing the right clothing for this weather, attempts to hop, skip, run and JUMP.

But ,.......... NO............... hop, skip, TRIP over bloody (warm comfortable boots) aaawwwwwwww, on to knees. Damn , Blast thwarted again, I will do a competent jump.

Small round of applause from on-lookers, still totally stunned as to whether this is street art or just nutty mother, whose sick kid shoud be wrapped up much warmer and possibly at home in the warm.

I nonchalantly pretend this was somehow planned................. how dellusional ( how do you spell dellusional ?) am I now ?

Rain, rain.

When I next see Nige............................. :-)

Monday - The walk to pick the children up from the school bus was gloroius, a little nippy but sunshine which made the trees look even redder.

Sunday - Had family over for sunday lunch to celebrate one of the younger 540's birthdays, it was very busy and both families were their usual insulting selves to each other, which was mildly irritating and a bit hurtful.

Took eldest daughter home and had a real heart to heart about stuff which made me feel alot better. Got home and watched 'Never Mind the Buzzcocks' on replay, it made me laugh.

He came out with the above phrase, (talk to the hand) just had me in stitches.

Of course now ickleist 540 thinks its okay to draw on herself too.
