HS:MS - City

A busting place to hang out, meet friends and enjoy.

Well I had to look through my photo files for this one as I don't have a city near to me today. These were taken from the top of the CN Tower when we visited Toronto, can't wait to go there again next year!

Yesterday I had a bit of a disaster - as usual. I took the boys to the dentist for 10.30 only to be told that I had missed the appointment as it was at 10am so now I have to take them again on Friday. However, I did manage to get Kyle's High School Uniform with no hitches so now he only needs shoes and he is sorted out for September - by baby is nearly all growed up.



I still don't know what is happening with my car so I suppose I better make some phone calls today to see if I can find out. I'm just hoping it's not written off because as soon as I get the cheque they take the hire car off me and then I will have no car until we can buy a new one and that's not good in the summer holidays with 2 boys at home.

It's Orange Wednesday today at the cinema and I am the Queen of BOGOF so we are going to watch "Harry Potter" tonight as they very inconsiderately released it when we were on holiday so we missed seeing it straight away.


OMG WOW Look what has just happened outside my back door. A sparrow hawk has just swooped down and grabbed one of the sparrows off my feeder and sat there with it under it's talons as bold as brass on my patio. If you click on the picture you can see it up closer. Sorry about the quality of the picture but the camera had the wrong lens on and I didn't have the time to change the settings.

Sue Nicholson said...

Fabulous shots but I agree with Anna . . . the height from which you took them is more than 12" of the ground so no good for me :)
