Beach scavenger hunt


Have felt the pull of the beach and sea for a few weeks now and managed to go yesterday. I love collecting bits and pieces and breathing in the lovely seaside air. I always collect wood for my driftwood creations but I fancied making something lovely and bright and colourful with all the found bits of plastic. Think of it as creative litter-picking :) The image above is everything that I collected.


All the lovely colourful bits of plastic and rope

A trip to the pictures

When my brother and I were at school we decided that we wanted to try and go to the cinema twice a month, and considering that we had to pay for the local ferry to go the cinema too I hate to think how much we spent but man, did I see some great films and some films I probably never would have seen otherwise. I used to record the films we saw in my diary and we rated them too. Here’s the marking criteria we made up:


My friends used to love to see my lists

Some of these films I completely forgot about till I got these out again to photograph. I got reminded about these after going to see a horror film at the cinema with my brother on his birthday and it has been ages since we’ve seen a horror film so we started reminiscing :) I also collected all the tickets which I have upstairs which I may also show you one day.


Now I admit I suffer from a range of anxieties, my stomach is awful in the mornings, I replay conversations over and over in my head, hate and avoid making and receiving phone calls other than from about 3 people, have great difficulty in popping round a friends for a cup of tea I feel I need more of a reason, a lot of decisions are agony although I have got better, feel guilty for not doing something but if I go do that feel like I should be doing something else so can’t win, find it very difficult to answer the door always feel like its going to be something that’s going to make me start panicking or is going to replay over and over in my head, or I won’t know what to say/ answer, if anything particularly dramatic happens during the day it will then trouble me in my dreams/ sleep, get random feelings of anxiety, worry, sickness and tension, as I can’t answer phones I send emails more and now starting getting to the point where I can’t open certain emails, struggle to ask how much things are at jumble sales etc. love it when everything is labelled and I’m sure the list goes on.

And how do they say to get help, just phone us up and make an appointment!!!!!!!!!!

There’s no hope!! :D

The power of music

Just finished watching The Voice on iplayer then remembered I had to go out and feed the guinea pig round my mum and dads, its only round the corner so I put my shoes and coat on grab my mp3 player and wow I can’t stop dancing!!

Such a random mixture of music but all of them had me dancing and singing, I couldn’t stop moving my feet, I listened to a track and stayed in the garden next track managed to move to the kitchen, next track dining room, then I turned the light off but still couldn’t move out of the house otherwise would be a weird person singing with their feet moving all over the place heading down the pavement, then came a track which is amazing but enabled me to move from my mum and dads back home but now another awesome track!!

Started with:

The Killers – All these things that I have done (walking to my mum and dads)

Ronan Keating – I hope you dance (feeding the guinea pig in the garden)

Chesney Hawkes – One and only (stuck in the garden)

Less than jake – Help save the youth of America from Exploding (dancing in the kitchen)

Rihanna – Rude boy (moving from kitchen to dining room)

Alexandra Burke – Broken heels (dancing dining room)

Linken Park – Numb (dancing in the dining room with the light off)

Robert Miles – Children (walking back home)

Black eyed peas – Let’s get retarded (dancing sat writing this :) )

I am now buzzing just by listening to some music  – it’s definitely a powerful thing

They go up, tiddly up, up, They go down, tiddly down, down

A array of photos I have taken at various air shows and air displays, including on Southsea seafront and at Droxford.

Crazy moon

Saw this amazing ring around the moon late at night some time last month, on our bikes on our way home, going back across the local park. Apologies that a lot of these photos look the same :)
