Project 365 week 14

Sunday

This was going to be what I shared last for last Saturdays picture but was changed at the last minute and so is being used today instead.

This is my new camera. Toyed with a few different ones before finally setting on this. I still wanted a pocket sized camera but liked the fact I can learn on this one as I can change it to manual and play with the settings.

So far I am impressed but a lot of functions  I have not used.

Monday

Was a beautiful morning when I went to let the chickens out, first red sky I have seen in a long time.

Tuesday

Poor Bob has been suffering from an abscess on and off for a while now. His teeth are not in the best condition due to the amount of medication of one sort or another that he takes. They decided after much deliberation and discussions between all the relevant qualified people that a general anaesthetic was the best way. So he had to be at hospital for half past seven, and he had three teeth out,  I volunteered to go round after tea time and help with the babies bath and bed time in case Bob was still feeling miserable. He was actually not too bad.

Love the way these two are starting to communicate, maybe not in words but in sounds and hand gestures. Dinky now says "see it" as well.  Not the clearest photo going they don't sit still very long in the same area to get pictures taken.

Wednesday

DH treated us to lunch today and afterwards we went for a walk along the beach, it was chilly but bright and sunny. I liked the way this ship appeared to be sitting in between the two markers at the harbour entrance in front of snow topped Arran.

Thursday

Took Bob for a walk down the fishery when I picked him up. Sadly it was a shortened walk as he was having fun and running about and slipped in the mud and ended up rather filthy. But before that we were looking at the birds. We just missed the peacock with his tail feathers open looking very majestic. We hung around for a while hoping he would open again but he was for none of it.
No Fifi this week as she was being picked up to spend a long weekend in Oban.

Friday

Bob is not allowed to eat dry crispy food for a week. For most children this would not be a problem you could give them boiled eggs or make their cereal soggy with milk but not so easy with Bob as he hates milk on cereal ( both his mother and I eat it dry as well) so this morning I made him pancakes and a smoothie.

Saturday

Saw this when we were in the town and as we have been looking for a blue pot for a while this seemed ideal. It sits nicely with the other two blue pots on the kitchen windowsill. This has narcissus in it from the garden.

    1. The vase is that bit different. Bob enjoys them but I am not sure most people would find his pancakes yummy.

  7. I hope Bob feels better soon! Love the photo of the boat, especially the mountains in the background! For a southerner like me, who has hardly seen snow all winter, it's fascinating to see it, especially at this time of year!
    Hope you enjoy your new camera.

    1. we have not had much snow here either so it was nice to see it on the hills. Not late for snow here yet, it is only the start of April after all.

    1. dry cereal may seem odd to some of you but for the third generation it is normal to us, and he will be back to normal this week.

  10. I think we would struggle with no crispy food too as H doesn't usually eat cereal or drink milk. Love your camera - a nice size for carrying about.

  14. I hope Bob is feeling better after having his teeth out. I know what you mean about getting twins to both stay still for a picture, it is hard work! I love the snow topped peaks of Arran. The hubby and I long to visit the islands off the East of Scotland. My hubby loves an Islay Malt or two :-) Happy Easter x #project365

    1. Yes thanks he is feeling better. Twins are hard work. Have to admit have never sadly visited any of the Islands despite looking at Arran for twenty years.

  21. Nice new camera. I subscribed to http://emmadaviesphotography.com/ and get an email each week (some of which are still waiting in my inbox!) Tells you about all sorts and is easy to follow too.
    I like the blue boot vase, always nice to have something unusual for a vase.
