Sunny Lego Bench Monday

This lucky young Lego lady found a very kind gentleman to help her avoid the hot sunshine today. It looks like he may be struggling a bit with that umbrella though.

Boring Lego Bench Monday

At least one of them looks like they're having a good time. I do hope this isn't their first date.

Naked Lego Bench Monday!

I say, that's a bit risque for a Bench Monday isn't it?! Oh it's OK, she does have a strategically placed leaf attempting to cover her modesty, and it is all in the name of art, darling.

One Sentence Journals

8th March: "The GPS coordinates came bundled in a proprietary packet"; if I see that NCIS trailer one more time I will scream.

9th March: I can't seem to stop internet shopping at the moment because there are just so many cool things I really want.

10th March: Iron Man 2 is nowhere near as good as the first film, but at least Robert Downey Jr is still just as pleasing to the eye!

One Sentence Journal - 3rd-6th March

3rd: The third takeaway meal in as many days is not good news for my waistline - oops!

4th: Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Huh? I didn't get it.

5th: It is so hard for me to ever be 100% about huge life changing decisions, but right now I'd settle for 75%

6th: My new favourite snack is a tiny bowl of dry Frosties (well, Asda's own) - there's nothing worse to me than soggy cereals.

And to avoid my blog looking messy, I think I'll start publishing a week of the One Sentence Journal in one neat post on a Sunday. I can still right it through the week and save it as a draft. It just looks too untidy and chaotic otherwise!

Best of...January

Since my post the other day on the reasons behind 365 projects and the benefits of reviewing your goals, I thought it might help to do a little review of each month - the best photos, any news, things I learnt or did, etc. It would also help me remember what goes on in my life too. If I can remember back that far, I'll fill you in on January (I have to do all 12 months of this year else it will trouble me!).

♥ So, 2012 began with the obligatory New Year's resolution to stop biting my damn nails, and I made it through the month with my trusty Nail Biting Solution. I've lost count how many times I've tried to do this in the past, with very varied degrees of success. Maybe this time it will be different (yeah, yeah). 

♥ It was very sad taking down the Christmas decorations, but I replaced them with the many origami models I furiously made throughout the month.

♥ I started taking outfit posts every weekend which has already helped with posing and the practicalities of using a tripod and timer, and with focusing the camera completely unaided.

♥ 4 little fishes joined my household, I found the best mug ever in Poundland, and my phone got a late Christmas present.

♥ I learnt to knit! (sort of)

♥ Lego Bench Monday began!

♥ I discovered the fabulous 'colour sketch' effect on my Nikon D5100.

♥ The worst part of the month was the awful news that Picnik is closing. On the brightside, because of that I discovered Camera Bag 2! Still not found anywhere to create such awesome collages as Picnik, or to do some of my favourite other effects. I'm still angry. Grrrr.

Ellenburg Photography started a Project 52 which I love taking part in and challenging myself to come up with fresh ideas.

♥ My favourite 365 Self photos of the month:

"Say Cheese", it's Lego Bench Monday!

A nice traditional photo of 3 generations of the Lego family - son, father and gramps. One for the album!

One Sentence Journal

I've reached the 25 series recording limit on my HDD recorder - I didn't realise I enjoyed that many programmes!

01 March 2012

One Sentence Journal

I was planning on writing a blog post this evening but I'm really not feeling well - staring at a computer screen is the last thing I feel like doing when my head is pounding.
