Day 222 - 227

It seems to have been ages since i blogged any of my photos.. i am still enjoying the freedom that the holidays give us. we had some rocky days, but mostly, we have enjoyed these holidays! We even managed two trips to the seaside! I didnt manage to snap any super clever or interesting photos, but at least there is one photo for each day!


Surely the olympic run of word prompts is coming to an end now?? i hope so as im finding it increasingly difficult to come up with relevant (even remotely) photos for these words. This is a quick photo i took earlier when we were in town, it is a big memorial to some woman or other.. with hindsight, i should at least have stopped long enough to read the plaque that goes with it. I saw the word "bronze" and got so excited, i missed the rest of it. Other than that this bronze statue was put up in 1956 as a replacement for a badly damaged likeness dating from 1885.


I actually changed my mind about which photo to choose quite a few times.. in the end i narrowed it down to these two. The first one shows little silver tags that are attached to the colourful glass orbs in our Galileo Liquid Themometer.. i dont think its very accurate, but it sure looks pretty! The next photo i took later on in the afternoon to remind myself that every cloud has a silver lining!


Sorry, this is a really lazy interpretation and the first one that popped up... the golden arches of a well known fast food restaurant!


I suppose i could say that ive exhausted my imagination with these sporty prompts :D and today is a complete cheat! or at least it will take a very long stretch to get the connection.. we took the dks to see the closing ceremony at the local vue cinema... here is a quick snap of them towards the end, when cj's attention and patience had been pushed way past exhaustion, and the other two were starting to get tired as well.


The girls were trying to build a higher castle than the boys at the beach today!


As someone who is dyslexic, analog clocks have always defeated me! Dh bought me this cute thing in an attempt to help me with my determination to master these pesky watches and time tellers! The great thing about this watch is that it not only says "hour" and "minutes" but also shows "to" and "past".


  1. I understand you say you had some difficulties with the words but your photos are sooo great in their interpretation and originality. Bronze is beautiful. Silver too. Gold made me laugh but it's a great interpretation. Exhausted and higher were part of your daily life and look so natural.
    As of determination, it is purely splendid. Love that watch. I am also confused with time, but as German, you will understand why : German say halb neun and they mean 8:30. I lived 12 years with that and it's in my head. British say half nine and they mean 9:30. ARRGGHH ! Very confusing ! I always need to double check to make sure !!! xxx

  2. Great clock, my eldest would benefit from one of those.

    I love the photos and well done on getting out to the seaside.

  3. well done on the photos and going to the beach twice. I love the watch, what a great idea.

  4. Well done on your catchup, you've got some great interpretations and there is nothing wrong with your gold one.

  5. Loved all your photos. I think we'd have had a similar photo of Em at the closing ceremony- but they chose not to go. I enjoyed it!

  6. I love your catch up photos and every one without taking a photo of pictures on the TV. Well done
