Silent blogger blogs again ;-)

with 13 comments

I have been awfully quiet on the blogging front lately, I know.

I’m going through a bit of a phase, what can I say?

A phase of not being on the computer much, shock, horror. lol. Yes, me. The computer addict.

And by computer addict, I don’t mean someone who is good with computers and knows lots of technical stuff. No, I mean someone who likes *rsing around on facebook and blogs for half the day.

Ironically, I have pretty much 24/7 access to the computer now because Michael bought himself a snazzy laptop. (Which is very cool, I must say.)

But alas, I have been otherwise occupied. Preoccupied might be a better word for it. I am actually in a bit over my head with this exam I am sitting on 20 May. (Yes, I got the written notification of the date in the post). I might not make the grade. It is a distinct possibility. But I am not going down without a fight. And if I don’t make it this go round, I will try again.

Would really like it if I could make it this go round, though πŸ˜‰

On a different subject, the results of the first round of the photographic competition were announced. I didn’t get a place but am not too put out, as the winning photo’s were very beautiful, plus now I get the chance to enter the second round.

My Double Delight rose bush and my Burning Sky one did me the huge favour of making one exquisite bloom each, at the same time. They are in pots so I pushed them together and took a photo. It kinda looks like the one is leaning over to whisper sweet nothings into the other’s ear.

I am hoping this might win me a prize. (The prize is not monetary per se, but they do give you 20 rose plants of your choice, which I think is better than money πŸ˜‰

Anyway, I would love to know what my readers think of my chances with this photo. I put a lot more thought and effort into this one. I even dusted off my tripod and rigged it up for the event. And got up early(ish) in the morning when the lighting is right!

So tell me what you think, dear readers…

Oh yes, and I also had to lug pots around to provide the proper ‘background foliage’. In the first photo I took there was dog poop in the background. I’m guessing that won’t earn me bonus points from the judges, lol.

  5. You are in love with “m” so much..it must be a nice feeling…to feel so close and share each other..I think im rite that having a baby must be important..but because of m/s…would be so hard for you and m…
    A baby can bond you..or break you …in my case…my wife found someone else to have children with..they are all lovely …
    I mean that..i get on with x wife and her children…I have my daughter rachel..and im very lucky because we get on well so much..
    She lives in london now with her boyfriend..she is 22..and i do miss her very much…Life can be lonely even if ur happy…hugs richard x
