Not my best day

Today is slipping away from me all too quickly. Plus, I have jam in my keyboard.

My 365 photos are not coming out as I had hoped. With luck I can make a little extra time later and try again.

Nell and I have been out to look at our post-storm world. She found a nice blue plastic container in the flotsam to play with, then promptly dropped it into the flooded field and was disinclined to brave the water to retrieve her toy. I seem to have become all too distracted by Lightroom plugins, trying to get uploads to Facebook working, and filters, a mild distraction when my plugin failed to play nicely. It’s almost dark now and I have achieved nothing of any note today. I got showered and I got dressed – end of story.

Back to routine on Monday. Perhaps I shall be more productive then.

We put new batteries in the bathroom scales this morning and are both very pleased not to have gained any weight over the holidays.

What else… oh, yes, we began a trial Netflix subscription last night and watched 9. The film was vaguely disappointing but the streaming was very successful by comparison with the BBC iPlayer. We shall no doubt run another test this evening – most likely on Super 8. From what we have seen of the catalogue it appears very much biased towards the lowest common denominator. Only to be expected, I suppose. I guess once we have seen all that we wish to, we would scrap any subscription we might have taken out.

Here is some more of the flotsam from the storm. I hope very much that it did indeed come all the way from the Faroes…

It has been a busy day, not much time for anything. We walked the dog this morning but I took no photographs until I decided to take a few potshots in the village on our way back.

Van Nessa : Her Leak

Home from Melle, we set about cleaning the van in preparation for going out again. At the moment we are hoping to go out for at least one night every week in continuing efforts to break the cats in (or down!) Mr Snail was cleaning the bathroom. Although we haven’t used the shower we had… Continue reading Van Nessa : Her Leak
