I headed to Bradgate Park today with my parents and Hubby, armed with my new camera and an eagle eye! I got some really great photos, but I think this one has to be my favourite. I'm pretty sure all the deers there are so used to people being around, they don't really take much notice, but I think this photo looks as if the deer is in the wild somewhere, totally unaware of my
I got to tick something off my Bucket List today. Before I get to that though, I need to give you some back story. My lovely friend Sarah has her own blog; she's blogging about her final year before turning 30 - there are many things Sarah wants to achieve before she is 30 in March 2013. When discussing what she could add to this list, I told her about my Bucket List dream to cross the pedestrian crossing on Abbey Road, as featured on the cover of the Beatles album of the same name. On agreeing that this was indeed a very suitable addition to her list, we planned a trip to London with our other halves - today, it was time for that trip.
As you can see from these photos, we had a ball, even if the weather was rubbish, and we both got to cross something off our lists, and we looked cool in the process. For those of you that are interested, Sarah has written a much more detailed account of our day here.
I got caught in a MONSOON at lunchtime today. My friend Lucy and I honestly thought the apocalypse had begun; the sky got really dark, so dark that the street lights came on (it was only 1pm-ish), then the heavens just opened - I've never seen rain like it, not even in Brisbane, Australia and I thought that was bad! We were stuck in the cafe we'd ordered our takeaway lunch from for about 20 minutes, along with many others, waiting the rain out! There were a few
crazy people who had braved what I'm sure they thought would be a shower, and they were soaked to the bone; one poor lady we saw had an umbrella but was still so soaked you could see her bra through her white top, and her black trousers were so wet they were shiny - it was insane!!
Some of you may remember, back in May, the KA that came crashing through my front garden; well, the police have finally decided on a 'punishment' for the (uninsured) driver. He has been given a conditional caution, which means he must clear up the mess he made before the end of the week or he will be arrested and prosecuted - this is all he did today! I'm soooo fed up of coming home to such a mess.
