We take our digital cameras totally for granted now and it is amazing that we can zap off a load of pics with different angles, compositions and settings. But (are you allowed to start a sentence with 'but'?), does anyone besides me, miss that excitement of handing in rolls of film for development and the eagerly awaited anticipation of collection thinking you just might have caught that perfect photo. In my case, the other 23 were rubbish but that one, that beautiful one, was worth it and the joy was immeasurable. Much of our lives have been made so much easier, but have we removed a lot of simple pleasures too?
That little bit of nostalgia apart - lookee who we have here then. It was so great to have a few hours together with Del and Al; actually quite a lot of hours!
and Daisy got to the stage where she wished everybody would just bugger off
Today we were a bit wrecked after our very late night, but around 9.00pm we mustered ourselves to get on with Christmas - himself got on with the present wrapping
and I got on with making the mince pies - deep filled (but that's another story)
These mince pies were destined for Kaz's tomorrow - oh dear, who ate all the pies?
