The Photo Lottery

I have been tagged by The Musings of a geriatric Mummy and I am sure someone else too, to do the Photo Lottery Meme, the rules are: 1. Open the first (oldest) photo folder in your computer library 2. Scroll to the 10th photo 3. Post the photo and the story behind it 4. Tag 5 or more people to continue the thread OK the oldest digital photographs I have on the laptop are from 2003 and our trip to South Africa. This is the tenth one and not all that stunning in its imagery, but as a part of modern history it is just beyond my comprehension.For this is the more »

Giving and Receving

I have said it before and I will say it again. The Internet, the WWW, the blogosphere, it has been wonderful to me.

Welcome MeMe

I have been tagged my Sally over at Who’s the Mummy, she is the wonder-woman who compiles the Tots 100 index and also edits The Great Toy Guide. I especially like this meme, as is to give new bloggers a great big welcome in to the wonderful world of the Blogershere, which I joined 6 months ago. Since then I have thrown myself in at the deep end and I love it. I have a pretty full google reader, but I am always on the look out for new blogs which are inspiring, an interesting read, peak my creativity or just make me laugh.

My Favorite Photograph Meme 15

I have been tagged by Peggy at Perfectly Happy Mum to complete Tara from Sticky Fingers Favorite Photograph MeMe. With the issues with my Laptop, I have been thinking about this and to narrow it down it is going to have to be from the last 4 years from when we went digital, as we don’t have a scanner. That does narrow it down somewhat, but that still leaves in excess of 5000 photographs taken by me.  I know this as I thankfully transferred them all to the external hard drive MadDad bought me for Christmas just before the laptop went terminal. I love photographs I always have, they are the more »
