A view from the park. The sun kept creeping out from behind the clouds then quickly hiding again.

Signs of Spring

Took the dog for a walk yesterday and spotted a lone flower in the park.

The atmosphere there was a little strange as the frost and snow only cleared up a couple of days ago and the place looked deserted and untouched. The bin was empty, no litter anywhere, no children playing on the swings or footprints in the muddy grass. It was rather nice really!

Where I study

This is the view across the building from the kitchen area where I study. I have a desk with my fellow students just a few metres from here. It's a relatively new building (as you can probably tell by the attempts to make it look *trendy*) and open plan. We have to whisper and giggle quietly or else we get emails telling us off!

I often wonder what it would be like if someone had an argument in there, practically the whole 5 floors are open plan and connected in some way so almost everyone would hear!

Pub door ...

.... in the *ladies'* that is. I found the graffiti in this pub toilet particularly amusing and worthy of documentation.

Blue Head

This is another photo taken whilst at blue planet, this time under the large shark pool. It's an odd shot as much of it is out of focus, but I really like it. It's a shame I never framed it better but it was an *of the moment* picture so I didn't have time to think about it or set it up specifically.

Exploring the Deep

We went to Blue Planet on Saturday for Squishy's birthday celebrations. We've been there two or three times before for previous birthday celebrations. One thing we like to do is take our pictures through the 'nemo' display.

Peering into the rock pool is more difficult than you'd expect when you're only two.

Birthday Girl

The birthday girl "saying cheese for the camera" at the beginning of her day out....

Eating sweets during the middle of the day, and yes we had wiped her nose endlessly all afternoon ...

And enjoying her ice cream at the end of the day .....

All in all a good day out for a two year old methinks. :-)

I am Two

Here is squishy on her 2nd birthday. She is watching her birth video. She was a bit puzzled as we kept telling her that she is the baby! "My not baby my big girl."

Mummy and daddy have not tidied their bedroom recently can you tell?

Kids' Film Review

As you know my blog is not being updated quite as much as it once was. This is partly because I'm busy doing university work, partly because I'm not taking my camera out with me as much and partly because our new yearly challenge is our kid's film review podcast.

Please check it out (if you haven't already) and let other people you know who may be interested.
