As part of @satscenes self portrait week I took the above picture yesterday. I originally bought the wig to wear it at the three Race for Life events I am volunteering at this year, but last weekend’s Windsor Race for Life event was far too windy for it. It’s quite pink and I like how […]

Photo library

Sorting out all the photos I have taken has been an ongoing project of mine for close to two years and I’ve blogged about it several times before. And, as of a few days ago, I’ve actually finished it! All of my photos are stored on my laptop in Dropbox folders which is one overall […]


This week I spent a couple of days in Sheffield which was more of a neccessity rather than a trip for the sake of going on a trip. Still, no one can say I didn’t do a bit of sightseeing whilst there!

About @SatScenes and why haven’t you taken part yet?

I have been taking part and tweeted about SatScenes since 2008 which is why I was surprised when @spritesbites told me she never really knew what it was about. SatScenes is a collection of photographs taken by people on Twitter from all around the world every Saturday. Participation is optional and only involves sending a […]

A picture can be worth a thousand words

As I’ve mentioned before, I’ve been organising my pictures folder. I actually been making progress with it though it’s mostly just that I spend a few minutes here and there on it. Tumblr yesterday announced its new ‘mega-editor‘ which allows editing, tagging and deleting multiple posts at once. That way I’ve been able to delete […]

Organising pictures

Full size I’ve spent a lot of time in the past month trying to sort out pictures. Before I started there were roughly 8000 pictures, though a lot of them duplicates, stored in too many places, including two laptops [one of which switches off every 10-30 minutes], two external HDD’s, an iPod classic and online […]

Project365 week 2 – “The big freeze followed by the big thaw then some more snow followed by rain. What’s going on?”

It’s week two of my Project365 and another week featuring mostly pictures taken in and around the flat. The few times I have left the house I didn’t come across much worth taking a picture of and twice I nearly forgot to take one alltogether which explains the pictures of whatever I was watching or […]

Project365 week 1 – “Snowmageddon* is upon us and I can’t leave the house”

It’s the first week of 2010 and it’s been snowing for most of the time which has left me unable to leave the house due to living on slopey road and appreciating both my life and intact bones! The images and additional explanations of them can also be found on cat on tumblr: #1 – […]

In 2009

#In2009 is a hashtag that’s been popular on Twitter the past few days and it’s been interesting to see what other people have done in 2009. I posted a tweet as well, but feel like I want to elaborate a bit more. My tweet: #In2009 I moved back to Reading #rdg and realised a lot […]

Breast Cancer Awareness Month – #2 – The dressing gown edition

I went shopping today and can’t remember the last time my feet have hurt this much.

Breast Cancer Awareness Month – #1 – The candle edition

Truth be told I nearly forgot it’s this time of year again. I will be attempting to post a picture containing anything pink each day. #1 – The candle edition:

Procrastination at it’s finest!

That’s a list of things I wanted to get done on this blog today ranging from sorting out some pages, clearing up the sidebar, transferring more content from cat on tumblr and creating new pages. How many of the things listed on that piece of paper have I actually done? That’s right, none of them. […]

I love u!

Seen near Hannover, Germany. Not really into graffiti, but this made me smile.

Random Art

More ‘art’ randomly in the streets in Germany, seen in Hameln. Just next to this building actually!

“Happiness is not in the destination, but the journey.”

“Das Glück liegt nicht im Ziel, sondern im Weg dorthin.” – “Happiness is not in the destination, but the journey.” I’m not sure if it is one of those phrases that I agree with, but it does seem rather odd writing it across a building. Seen in Hameln, Germany.


I had to look several times before I realised what was going on there, definitely a way to get people to look at the window! Seen in Hameln, Germany.

Random Art

Seen near Hannover airport just outside the Maritim hotel. Germany has a thing with random ‘art’ in places, but what does it mean?! Also note the broken window in the hotel..
