When i saw these camera friendly gloves i thought "genius idea!" but £40? Today my frozen fingers yearned for them, though I may just go with the 'taking a pair of scissors to an old pair of gloves' option.

It was the first time in days where it hasn't rained so we went out for some fresh air. I'm not an outdoor creature, when the temperature drops below 20 degrees i hibernate under a blanket with hot water bottle. Flashback a year ago, before i got my DSLR, and the idea of going out for fresh air in wintry temperatures would have seemed laughable. Such is the power of photography :)

A curious friendly deer crashed our 'shoot.' I never tire of seeing them, they're beautiful.

graffiti and cakes

I was on the computer and Leila was on the sofa playing with my iPad. We had just come home from Leila's Stage Coach lessons. From nowhere a little voice said "you know mummy, we could go out for a photo shoot." So i grabbed my camera and we headed out. There's an underpass that crosses under Sunbury Cross roundabout. I am always stuck in traffic on this roundabout and I've often gazed down at the graffiti walls and thought it would be an interesting place to take photos. It was once a dreary underpass that the council decided to dress up with graffiti art, most likely to stop unwarranted 'graffiti' and 'tags.'

It was loads of fun, we got a lot of smiles and strange looks from passersby! When we got home, as a treat i gave Leila a hot chocolate and a slice of the homemade cake we made on Thursday. As she tucked in she sighed and said "i don't know why you're so tired, I'm the one who did all the work!" :)

A few from an impromptu trip to Hampton Court Palace gardens. I feel really lucky to live near Hampton Court Palace.
