Word Prompt - NAUGHTY

Today I'm off on a 3 hr photography course, then after I need to complete my essay! Don't think I'll find time to 'stage' a naughty photo, unless something happens on the course!

In the meantime, here's a photo of my naughty pup, from a few months ago!

Word Prompt - SNACK

Snacks in my house are constant, if it's not myself or my kids, it's the children I childmind! The after-schoolers are STARVING when I pick them up, and for snacks today they were offered - scotch pancakes, breadsticks, toast or fruit!

The healthy option is always a big NO, however, I was surprised today when they all asked for fruit!!

Word Prompt - EXCITEMENT

I was anticipating today's word with baited breath for two different reasons! Firstly, great excitement about an article being published in CHAT magazine about my son and his Selective Mutism, and secondly, the anticipation of having to give evidence in court this afternoon which I'm dreading.

How happy am I the word prompt was EXCITEMENT!

Today's word prompt was NEW!  What else could I take photos of, but of my son at the local Skate Park on his NEW stunt scooter!

This was one of his presents from Santa, and it would appear that almost every child in our neighbourhood also received a scooter of some description from Santa.

Happy New Year

Let's Celebrate! As part of an online Blog I have decided to join in with a photo a day, connected to one word. Today's word was 'Celebrate'.

Today we went out for a lovely meal with friends to the local pub to celebrate the start of 2012, which will have many changes in store for our family. Geoff, my husband decided to be princess Leah!!!

The food was divine and the company superb!
