Life, photos but not the universe

The wind

Under your tail, downhill and following, out of your sails, in your hair, thru the trees, of your passing ….. er,  just behind the car and getting louder and closer??   I don’t think so.  I think the car is losing another set of marbles.  Or to be less  approximate, it’s losing it’s bearings.

Last time a set of bearings went, it sounded as if there was an aeroplane following me down the road.  At present, it’s just a gentle whooo-ing.  No problem, we’re having it MOT’d in a couple of days and I’m hoping the wheel won’t fall off before then.

Speaking of wind, hasn’t it been stormy recently.

Oh and moving in a swift circle, look what I found!!!  It’s not quite as cool as the tiny mobile phone would be but definitely a step in the right direction.  That’s going on the christmas list and what’s more, it’s going in the stocking of a certain key-findingly challenged person.  However, the credit card bit will live in a safe place.  Like on the key hook.  (He has a habit of putting his wallet in pockets out of which it falls (as the pockets aren’t quite deep enough to accommodate it.  And we’ve already covered the actual pockets here.

One of the useful things I got done the other day was to book an eye test.  Not before time it seems as they assure me the last time I saw them was five years ago.  We addressed the vexed question (it’s been vexing me anyway) of camera viewfinders and had quite a lot of fun adjusting the viewfinder to fit my eyesight and then, for comparison, the optician’s eyesight.  We came up with contact lenses and blow me if they aren’t doing free trials.  (the last time I tried contacts, soft ones had a bit of a bad press and the semi permeable ones I used kept making little bulges on my eyeballs.  Things have moved on, it seems and maybe I could use them without acquiring permanent contact lens shaped bobbles)

And nice new glasses as well.  Ho Ho 🙂  Things may be looking up.  My eyes may be anyway.

I’m going to try uploading a photo.  It’s been very hit and miss recently but you never know…..


I may have to approach the help forums.

Oh bother!


Hit 🙂
