I'm Just An Old Fashioned Girl

Well today is Self Portrait Saturday and even though I didn't take this picture, obviously, it is me and it was taken today.

It's the last time I let Pete hold the camera while I go for a quick sit down in the woods while we are out Geocaching I can tell you.

Over the last couple of weeks we have been watching the first series of "My Name Is Earl" on DVD and I don't know if anyone has noticed that every time Earl has his picture taken his eyes are shut. Guess which idiot decided that this is a cool idea and that it would be really funny if he did it all the time.

My Name is Pete

Today is also the day for Photohunt and this week it is Old Fashioned. This was one of the photos I took at the Black Country Museum last October as this man reminded me of the way my Great Uncle Jack used to dress when I was little.

The dinosaurs from yesterday are now safely tucked away in a box in the attic. When it came down to it a really couldn't part with them so they are going to live in a hidden corner until someone will love them again.

Honestly - can a girl never get any privacy?!

I've just caught up with your pictures - still loving that cake, btw - the one of the seagull is stunning and I love the ring - such a moving story behind it too.

Love the SPS, Pete ought to be shot. Did you find the cache ok at the end of all of that, I hope so! We had tomato soup yesterday, and it was delicious (but obviously not as good as when you made it).
