Unfortunately I waited most of the day for the sky to show some of the pretty clouds we had yesterday. But it's been a grey sort of day and took this one this afternoon. This is next doors tree which has some video tape trapped in it's branches that is driving Holly potty. She hears it rustling and catches the fluttering from the corner of her eye- and thinks someone is invading her garden.
We didn't even have dramatic black clouds- just lots of grey and more grey!
I was rather hoping todays theme might be ground level. We went to start off this morning to discover that the car had a COMPLETELY flat tyre. Emma and I had to fly up the hill to make sure that we got there before the bus guide. With my nasty cold that was a struggle- Emma kept telling me to hurry up. I think I might have been lynched if I'd stuck around to take photos of him changing the tyre. Especially as it wasn't coming off without a fight. He was half an hour late for work!! It had a nail in it- and he got it repaired at lunchtime. HE did think we might need to change all four tyres soon- but they didn't suggest it, so think we can wait a little longer on that!
I had an Avon order for the first time in years today. A young girl has just started a round with her dad! I almost took my new eyeshadow clouds- with the alluring name of 'gleams of gold'- my new lipstick is called sparkling nude!!!!!!! Thought my greyish pallor this week needed a little help!
