Today's prompt over at 365+1 is movement and I know technically these are about a month old but I think they show movement quite well...This was at Pittodrie Stadium, home of Aberdeen FC...Morgan was playing at half time during a 1st team match...they were also taken with my old point and shoot camera as I couldn't be bothered dragging the big one with me...It was absolutely freezing as well and was snowing at one point!!!

Well here we are Day 19 and I am just posting Day 17...will stop apologising now for not posting everyday and just do it when I can...real life really does get in the way sometimes...lol...
This is Niamh (again!), this time in naughty mode...she is not very happy with herself as she is supposed to have done a 3d model in the Christmas hols but we didn't do it and I had looked out stuff so we could make a pyramid which she seemed happy enough about until we started doing it and then she kicked of that she didn't want to....she wanted to make a robot but we didn't have the necessary recycling to make one so she went in a right strop and after much persuasion she still wasn't having it so I said we just wouldn't make anything then...not a very happy child but they have to learn...xxx

Saturday's prompt was quite easy but I was having a bit of a bad day yesterday so didn't get around to it....
I have this bottle of Sloe Gin that I keep in my freezer(for emergencies only you understand and as you can see from this nearly empty bottle there has been quite a few of those lately..heehee)...I don't drink a great deal but I do like a nice sloe gin with fiery ginger beer, ice and lime...I am also quite partial to Pimms with lots of strawberries but do tend to keep that for the warm summer months....
If you have just started following me lately you can find lots more inspiring photographs over at Suzie 365...

This is my lovely sparkly grey beret...I love it but can't wear it everyday as sometimes I just can't get it to sit right so of it comes and another hat has to go on...I have to admit to a big love of hats..I used to wear them ALL the time now it's just in the winter...This is some packaging that I received some crafty stuff in a while back...it's so cute...I kept it for that reason...now I wonder what I could do with it!!!
365+1...Day 13...Inside Your Fridge

Anyway this is my photo for the day...it is my aim to drink more of it and with a frozen slice of lime it certainly makes it easier to drink...
Will be back later(hopefully!) with today's photo....xx

Today the word on the street is 'COSY'....my interpretation is the cosiness in the conservatory once the sun has gone down, the blinds are closed and the lamps have been turned on...9pm...Hawaii 5-O here I come..lol..
Speaking about the sun going down, this was the amazing sunset we were treated to here in Inverurie tonight...beautiful...looks like the sky is on fire!!!
Excuse the mess in my garden...not tidied up yet from the builders...my friend was round the other day and her little girl Eleanor said to me 'Do you know you washing thing has fallen down??'...lol..we had to move it to make way for the building...don't think it's going to fit in the space that's left over there and I don't want it where it is so I think it may become redundant...I am thinking I will get the lines that you can whizz in and out and a couple of poles...I miss my drying green of old(4 posts, 4 lines and a couple of poles..washing dried so much better):0(...

Okay, today threw me a little since I had used a drink for yesterday's prompt...I didn't want to just do another one...My first pic was of the bird bath in the garden but it looked a little grey and dull given the weather and I was all set to use it til I picked up my camera and spotted my little vintage tea-set...I love the delicate little flowers and the gold edging..sadly there is not a full set, 5 tea-cups, 5 saucers, milk jug and sugar bowl but I still love it...the whole lot cost me the princely sum of just £5 from the charity shop..
Today I have been trying to make Lemon Meringue cupcakes...the cupcakes have turned out fine but I have not yet mastered the meringue...The second lot is away to be rinsed down the sink...I just cannot get them to peak!!! Oh well butter cream icing it will have to be...at least I can make that....x

That's me for today...

And the first word is, rather predictably, CELEBRATE...
A lovely gift wrapped treat for me and Allan from Jen...our favourite bottles of wine and a box of mints...
The second word is NEW...
Now technically this isn't new but it is to me...I acquired it from the freecycle site Freegle from a lovely lady in Keig and it was totally free...i am so in love with it...I was going to give it a distressed paint effect after the new year but it's kinda grown on me so I may just sand it down and re-wax it...

This one sits at the bottom of my blog and I have to keep reminding myself of it now and then...it's been a tough year with more lows than highs it seems but I think we as a family are looking forward to that 'brand new ending' this year....
- I am looking forward to spending more quality time with my family,
- building up my craft sales,
- seeing more of my friends,
- trying some new crafting techniques,
- getting to know my new camera so I can have awesome photos,
- spending less money(if that's possible in this climate where everything seems to be getting more expensive by the day),
- getting fitter(I started running at the beginning of November but when my brother died I just stopped)
- and keeping my house more organised and tidier...
So that's my aims for this year...what about you? I just want to wish all my followers and fellow bloggers a very Happy New Year....xxx
