Jonquils, jonquils everywhere. Then my camera battery died and I had a choice of 2 out of focus photos. I chose this one:

Day 25 - Something Pink

My pink and green alarm clock. I've had it since I was about 10. It's not trustworthy, it slowly speeds up or slows down and changing the volume will cause static. But I would never get rid of it. Cos it's awesome.

Day 19 - Something Orange

My mixing bowls. They look retro but they are authentic. I think they were actually wedding presents to my mum and dad in the 70's.

Day 18 - Shoes

These are my favourite shoes. I've had them since I was about 15 when I thought they were awesome. At schoolies I left them in a friend's car and then didn't speak to her for 3 years. When I finally saw her again the first thing she said was 'I think I have a pair of your shoes in my car' and so they were returned. The inside is falling apart and the sole has been glued back to the shoe a bunch of times but I don't care. These are my favourite shoes.

Day 17 - Technology

I label my cables. It makes it easier. A friend (Myong for those who know him) made fun of me and added the label 'Grandma' to this cable.

Two things I learnt with today's post: 1. what long exposure is and 2. how to use the manual setting on my camera.

Day 12 - Sunset

So I didn't get the sunset, it was raining all day so we didn't really see the sun go. So I made a sunset. Here's my thinking: the orange light and the animals walking off to bed. You follow?

By the way have you seen Wonki's and Tango's blogs?

Day 11 - Something Blue

Some many things blue!

Day 10 - Childhood Memory

When I was a kid my nanna had 2 tapes we could watch: Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and The Wizard of Oz. I watched that Wizard of Oz tape so many times I can still remember when the ad breaks were. I was Dorothy for a while at that age. I had a basket and a toy dog named Toto. It's still my favourite movie and this DVD is well worn.

Day 3 - Clouds

On a beautiful winter's day in Sydney, there wasn't a single cloud in the sky until after the sun went to bed. Then it farted up a single cloud into the night sky.

DAY 1 - Self Portrait

Day 1, took a photo, actually took a few. Couldn't find one I liked, yeah. Oh and my car battery died, had to call roadside assistance and drop $187 to get a new one. Yeah.

Anyway, check out day 1's effort below. I reckon the cracks on wall behind me make me look like a mad scientist:

Well, hello there

Hmm....well....I...um...yep yep yep. Let’s just move on shall we?
