Autumnal walks along the river path

We decided to make the most of the dry autumnal weather to take a walk along the river to Keynsham this morning. The sun was burning it's way through the clouds so it was a perfect opportunity to get the camera out!

As we were following the footpath we had to walk under a pylon. This photo was taken looking up through the center, And this one was looking up from the corner.

The kids also had some fun with the leaves

Blogging Vacation!

I do seem to have taken quite a long time off from blogging, don't I?!
I must try to find more time and enthusiasm to keep up to date with my posts and also visiting other's blogs which I haven't done lately - oops!

Man of the match!

Luke played in his first football match today and was named man of the match! We were so proud of him beacause in the first half he got whacked in the face with the ball, but got back up and carried on. He's going to have a lovely shiner to show off in school tomorrow! Here is a pic of him on the pitch today.

My crafty bits!

2 more days to go!!

Only 2 more days at home then I'm back to school! These holidays have flown by, but I have enjoyed every minute of them. We've been to New York (I hear my friends saying "you don't say!"), St Austell in Cornwall for a week camping and Weymouth for the bank hols with our friends.

I took these photos at The Eden Project.

I have also signed up for an online photography course with Cheryl Johnson which I am getting to grips with a learning new things to do with my camera! This is my favourite photo so far!

Growing up!

My little girl is growing up so fast that it scares me! She goes back to school next Tuesday in year 8. I can still remember her first day in reception!!

For the last couple of months her taste in clothes and styles has changed so much that she has to be with me when buying clothes so that I don't get the wrong ones! Pink is definately OUT and doesn't exist in her wardrobe anymore, even if it's only a hint. She prefers to wear combats, jeans or skirts with leggings.

She has been on at me for ages to dye her hair black so yesterday we did it!! Here are some photos of before and after. The before pic was taken last week when we were camping in Cornwall.

Although it was a shock at first, I quite like it darker. Her friend thinks it's cool! Wonder what the kids at school will make of it?!

New York, New York!

What a fabulous place to visit! We had so much fun even though we walked our feet off! The sights, sounds and smells of the city will stay with me for a long time. I have put some of my pics into a slide show for you to see. These were taken with our little Nikon coolpix. Our Cannon was used a lot more for taking pics in RAW for Rob to mess around with. We took a 1gb memory card with us and by the middle of our second day Rob had used it up and had to buy a 4gb one!!
