Twitcher's paradise

There was a lot of excitement at the harbour on Saturday, all about a tiny bird who should have been in India. The Paddyfield Warbler was spotted thousands of miles off course!
At the top is my first experiment of drawing on an ipad and I'm addicted.
PS They weren't really looking in the wrong direction but I love the thought of the birds watching them instead.

Stop and stare 13

Driving along the country lanes just south of the downs - I had to stop and stare, infact I nearly crashed the car as I steered round a corner and came face to face with this. An amazing sculpture by Peter Burke called Janus Head. I wonder if it causes many accidents!

Weekend walking

Lots of walking this weekend - makes me feel good - mentally and physically.

♥ 13 ♥

It's My Jack Russell's thirteenth birthday today - 91 in dog years!

I've been busy with work recently so I haven't been very creative for myself and have definitely been very absent from this blog! I went through my photos from the past few weeks and found this picture which I've been meaning to post for ages. I like the contrast of colour and texture between this plant and the corrugated metal background.

It's so easy to fall into the habit of moaning about all the bad things that happen and I catch myself doing this more and more. Why is it easier to do this than noticing the good things? So I love the idea on Aimee's blog of a 'bliss list'.  Anyway my bliss list for the past few days is:

An impromptu lunch and a good laugh with friends
An unexpected cuddle with My Jack Russell (who is not normally very cuddly)
Making a marmalade cake from a new recipe and despite burning the outside, finding 10 minutes later that the inside was still runny, finishing it off in the microwave and icing it while still warm, it actually tasted ok!
Going to bed early to read because I've got a good book on the go
Listening to the radio - Alan Carr going out - he makes me laugh
A chat on the phone with my nephew
Working on a new project and having the ideas accepted straight away

PS - My moaning list would be longer but this one definitely makes me feel better!
