These little fellas are amongst my top five zoo animals! They are endlessly entertaining and very photogenic. They seemed to positively revel in having lots of long lens pointed at them on Sunday. Sadly Phil had our long lens on his D80 so this is the best I was able to do with my limited resources!
Yesterday I was very busy clearing out and rearranging kitchen cupboards. I find this type of task curiously satisfying especially when I'm listening to a talking book.
Two books I ordered from Amazon on knitting cushions and afghans arrived today. They look a little beyond me but I'll give them a try....
In the evening, Phil, the Wildcat and I all went to the local photographic society to hear the WC's dad give a really fascinating talk on his favourite photos. However there was a power cut at home and as we were in the WC's car, she took Phil home before returning to the talk. I felt really awkward and shy at the club. Just lately I seem to have lost a lot of confidence in social situations. I'm ashamed of myself and angry with myself for feeling this way; you'd think at my age I'd have got over these stupid childish feelings. I feel I let Phil and the WC down by being so quiet and I'm wishing so much I could do things differently...but I can't :( All I can do is try to behave better next time.
Kate has been writing a story for school; she showed it to me and I was stunned by its quality. Her vocabulary is superb and she shows a really powerful style. I'm very proud of her!
Good news today, my lovely mum in law had a very important test on her heart function and nothing terrible was discovered...she has angina but the doctors are hoping to manage it medically. I'm praying they will be able to get her feeling better soon and relieved the test wasn't as awful as she had feared.
