Mummy’s working today

Mummy is working today, which means I’m looking after Frank.

He’s a lovely boy but can be demanding!

I guess I’ll be spending hours and hours in Tesco, Toys-R-Us and Smyths toys looking for more ‘Trash Packs’…

Then, when we get back home I’ll have to endure at least 3 viewings of ‘Octonauts’…

Wish me luck…

Redundancies and Unemployment

I think the U.K. is a little bit mad. We’re making thousands of soldiers redundant and paying others to sit on their backsides at home.
Why don’t we give unemployed 18-25 year olds the option of 2 years National Service or 2 years ‘Civil Service’ (filling in pot holes, picking up litter, taking care of the elderly etc.) Give them a slightly enhanced payment – tax payers get something for their money, the candidates gain work experience and life experience?
Please feel free to add your comments…

A photographic idea

I’m considering an idea. I occasionally get people asking how I take my images, what kit I use etc.

I’m considering a meet up in The Lakes, probably around Derwentwater with anyone who wants to improve their photography – it would suit those who are at the most basic level.

I’ll show you what kit I use. How I compose my images. I’ll discuss post processing etc.

I’ve not done this before, there will be no fee, quite informal.

Anyone interested?

If possible, bring a camera, (you won’t need a DSLR – any kind of camera will do), and a tripod…
