Just a little random post

butterfly forget me nots

So today I decided to venture out in the sunshine (Its lasting a rather long time don’t you think?) and I wandered up to the old church grounds where I like to sit in peace and quiet. I noticed some lovely forget-me-nots next to me, so crouched down to get a decent shot. I used some weird defocusing app on my phone camera and ended up with floating flowers *ahem* It was only the background I meant to fuzz out, but these flowers look rather surreal……like butterflies.

daisy defocus

Kindof like this idea…..I do like daisies, but they smell a bit off.

I printed these pic off and stuck them in my new notebook. I had an idea to keep some sort of scrapbooky, notes, ideas, kind of thing…..like a journal but more doodling and artful. I used to do it as a kid and have been toying with the idea again. Of course now, its a whole expensive industry of its own, but I’m doing it “old school” for nostalgia sake, with sticky tape and messy writing. I’ll show it when its done. Just something to keep me occupied, since I only have a couple of weeks left of college.

Last day of placement tomorrow – I’m bringing in some nice biscuits as a thank you (and part apology since I keep eating theirs at break time!)

My temporary work commute

Blossom church

So, with this college course…..I have to complete a small work placement. Its just for experience, to put what we have learned, into practice. I ended up being placed in a small doctors surgery in the middle of the countryside……basically because I was the only person who wanted it. Everyone else in the class wanted “city slicker” hospitals because there was more chance of being taken on as an employee. Fair enough, but from what I have seen there are many different vacancies all over the place. I’m quite laid back and utterly uncompetitive…I’ll get a job somewhere, heh!

Anyway, my point is…..as my classmates were cramming into trains, buses, traffic jams, etc on a baking hot day…..I was meandering along country roads filled with cherry blossom, listening to birdsong, feeling the warm sun on my face and taking photos en route.

river trees

Such a beautiful river that I had to cross.

bridge

By way of this bridge. Look at how unbusy it is, heh!

Bluebell path

This little path is filled with bluebells. I had to cut through this to get to the place I’ll be working for the next couple of weeks.

Church

A lovely old church – just down the road from the one at the top of this post. The place I work is just up the road and round the corner. The day went by quite well, and I spent lunchtime sitting by the river watching a heron, feeling so appreciative and grateful that I’m not trapped in a hot sticky office!

Tomorrow is going to be raining apparently, haha! Doubt I’ll be as cheery then 😀

 

 

Two more collages

I’ll stop in a minute, but you know I get enthusiastic about things once I start!

party rocketParty Rocket”

When it became clear that Rebecca had left her shoes on the last rocket of the evening, the trio struggled to come up with excuses for their parents. Being grounded at the start of the holidays was not a welcoming prospect.

David the AnthunterDavid the Anthunter”

David knew his teacher would think him so clever for using a disguise to help with the assigned Nature Project at school. Already he imagined the rapturous applause at morning assembly, but what he looked forward to most was bringing his new pet to Show and Tell on Friday……

 

Paper Collage

Hello – Happy Bank Holiday Monday if you have one. If you don’t, and have to go to work, well I hope you have a lovely day anyway! 🙂

I made a couple of paper collages with a stack of old National Geographic magazines that I found in a charity shop over the weekend. Such lovely images and quality paper!

Edith and the moon bird

Edith & The MoonBird”

Edith decided to take control of the situation and release the bird her husband gave her all those years ago. Teetering up the side of the moon in her brand new high heels, she wondered how she was ever going to explain it all to the neighbours. The Post Office was already agog with gossip about her husband disappearing. Edith also wondered if Mrs Henley would like it up here…….

The meerkat Kids

“The Meerkat Kids”

The boys seemed be enjoying the scenery so much, that Bethany decided that now probably wouldn’t be a good time to mention that it was nearly teatime, and she hadn’t eaten since yesterday.
