The sun is STILL out....






....and five children are still enjoying the garden!  We have been having such lovely weather lately, and it has prompted me to get my camera out again and have a bit of fun!  I am currently concentrating on trying to get absolutely correct exposure and also trying to perfect my post processing technique. I find that if the exposure is off it is much harder to get the skin tones to look right.   I am going to go on some more training soon so hopefully that will help.  I spent literally about five minutes taking photo's.  My children are very longsuffering..... LOL!  You may notice that George is still covered in his sandwiches too...  Joel as usual is pulling his funny faces ;0)   The children have been enjoying playing cricket lately, and also football shooting into the goal. The trouble is they keep on losing their balls over fences and on the roof of our garden shelter.  Henry did ask me to get up on the roof of the shelter to retrieve several balls, but I am afraid I declined!

Horray the sun is out!!





It is great that Summer seems to have arrived.... We have been out in the garden a lot and the children have had a lot of fun in the garden with their friends. We are so grateful to have a lovely garden to enjoy. Henry is even getting back into football again after saying he wasn't keen on it for ages!

making postcards!






I have been having some fun making postcard sized cards, starting with one for my dad for fathers day (the rabbit is there as a joke because they have pet rabbits and my dad really likes them). I had so much fun playing around making these!  We had a lovely afternoon in the garden today, it being a sunny day (horray!!). Having bought a petrol mower we are keeping up with mowing the lawn which makes the garden look so much nicer. The next job is to sort out our decking, which has all this peeling paint on it and it really needs cleaning, sanding etc, and repainting. If we have a week without rain, then hopefully we will be able to get that job done. We had a lovely afternoon and evening with granny and grandad and cousin Kai on Saturday, and thankfully we had really nice weather. There was a lot of activity going on, such as cricket and table tennis, football, and a game of bowling on the nintendo wii (granny won that one AGAIN!) We had a great time at church today, and somebody became a christian which was really fantastic!

Hi again!










I have been busy and not posted for a while again! My photography course has now finished so no more homework!!! We had a great Sunday yesterday, as our church had a fun day in the park aka 'Church in the Park'. We had food, bouncy castle, a talent show, and a church service to boot. We had a fantastic day. I will try and find some pics to put on the blog, but for now here are a few more of the lovely George....
