When I woke up with my left eye swollen shut. When I prised it open it was very red and sore. I felt like Quasimodo. That sort of things happens occasionally when O get run down or have been very busy. Just in time for a bank holiday weekend then! Not only is it a long weekend and I was looking forward to going out for a bear or two tonight but we are off to visit baby Daisy in the morning.

Then I went down stairs and made a cuppa. Allan got up and went to refill the kettle and a bit of plastic fell off. When we looked the inside of the lid had corroded and the plastic was turning to powder. A new kettle was desperately needed, we had had that one for about nine years so we cant complain. But I felt sick when I realised I had just had a cuppa tea from that which meant drinking corroded plastic!

As I have just started Cheryl Johnson’s Painting with Light the sequel online photography course I took my camera to work. As soon as I got there I was asked to take a photo of a team for the trust newsletter, and then realised I had the wrong lens on my camera. I managed to remember my previous training and set up the shot on manual. Although it did mean moving people around the group to get the right composition. I might post a sneak peek later. But I have posted a couple more photos taken when I was on the bootcamp weekend. A little baby hands and feet shot and a macro close up of a flower with bee wandering around.

I am off to put in more eye drops and feel sorry for myself as I cant go out and frighten the locals in the pub. I might have to have a glass of wine though to make me feel better.
