#Project365 31/52

The last 3 days of #FMSphotoaday were Perspective, Friendship and Workplace.

Perspective – Couldn’t decide between the two. Telegraph pole at end of the street and hubby’s bike.

Friendship – didn’t have opportunity to this on the day but thought the 2 of Grandson with Teddy and Grandad were suitable albeit they were taken on Saturday.  He’s feeding teddy choccie buttons!

Workplace – this one was hard for me as I don’t work. I’ve already posted pictures of my laptop and all that was left was the kitchen!  But I remembered I also work on my photography (tenuous link I know) so decided the 3 berry pictures were suitable! They are of the same plant, the berries start green then so pink, red and eventually blue. I’ve no idea what the plant is so if you know leave me a comment..

31-52 (1)

We had Ashley on Saturday, Mummy drops him off at around 8:30am and Daddy usually sends us a text around 2:30pm to say he’s up and we then drop him off home. This week we had no text by 3pm so I tried calling my son. straight to voice mail.. oh oh.. no signal or the phone is off.
At 4pm we decided to take Ashley home as Daddy was sure to be up and about. No sign of life at the house – back of your mind hopes everything is ok..
The option was to go back home (about 2 miles) or go to the small town centre, hubby suggested popping to Caldicot Castle so Ash could have a run about. It’s closer than going back home.
We made our way to the entrance and was told it was free to go into the grounds.. strange… I always thought it was free. I then realised there was an event going on by Soldiers of George 3rd – Crown Forces. It was a recreation of British Soldiers in the time of the American War of Independence. They were due to finish at 5pm so we were allowed to go in for free.
The chap on his own in the picture told us all about the group and he was very interesting. They then went on to fire the canon. It was VERY loud and although you know it’s going to go off it still makes you jump.
Ashley loved running about and we were glad that there was only a few people left in the grounds.  It was difficult to keep him still while they fired the canon. Although he doesn’t talk he still a noisy little boy!

#Project365 30/52

I’m still following the #FMSphotoaday prompts some have been easy some harder and to be honest I’ll be glad to go back to just plucking something out of thin air!

However I’ve decided I’m no longer going to take part in the Ultimate Blog Challenge.  The rule was to link to the daily Facebook link and comment straight away on the 2 above you. Some of the posts I would’t want to comment on – How to raise your SEO, Setting up in business, motivational speakers, the religious ones.  I got to the point where I waited for blog post links that I felt I could comment on in the daily threads, which is a bit of a cheat really.
I think I’m better off linking up with linkys where everyone is linking up with the same aim, #project365, #countrykids, #pocolo etc.  They are much more interesting 🙂

Anyway onto this weeks piccies.

#project365 30/52

The first few have their own post:

Grey  – Wood pigeon against the grey sky

I drew this

D is for Dinner for one!

Ground – Spices

The Everyday – My laptop used everyday! The screen saver is ‘The Journey Begins’ by Daniel Lieske. I had this picture on my PC in work and now have it on my laptop. I love the picture, there is so much going on and so much detail to take in. To see it in it’s full glory go here

Black and white – Ashley playing, black and white has made him look so serious! We had a lovely day with him. Playing mega blocks, reading and visiting Great granny Mo.

This is new – a bracelet I bought recently – It’s not an expensive Pandora one..just a cheapie from a local shop.

#Project365 week 30 day 3 – D is for

D is for —- well lots of things.

I thought most of the day for something other than the rather obvious D for Dog. By the time Hubby went to work at 6pm I was out of ideas until I thought ‘Ah – D for Dinner!’

So here you have it – Poached pollock, crushed peas, cous cous and parsley sauce.  It was followed by a ripe peach..

D is for DINNER

#Project365 week 29 day 7 – Favourite Food

If I was asked this every day you would get a different answer every day!

Some of favourites :

Soup – Heinz Cream of Tomato – Comfort food!!

Starters  – Rustic breads with Balsamic Vinegar and Extra Virgin Olive oil. OR Caesar Salad. I also love Insalata Caprese but rarely have it as the lactose in the mozzarella gives me a stuffy nose.

Mains – Really too many to list!! There’s not much that isn’t a favourite!

Dessert – Only available at home sadly – I’ve never seen it on a menu – Victoria Sponge with THIN custard (the custard cannot be poured over the top though.. just down the side so it soaks into the sponge. This is just heaven to me!

Dried fruit

This picture is of my breakfast – my favourite food on this is the apricots and prunes. We rarely had sweets when I was growing up but dried fruit was always in the pantry and I was often found with a gob full of it! It’s a good job my grandson wasn’t about as he would have nicked most of them as he loves them too!

Do have a favourite food?
