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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.
