My favourite scruffy t-shirt finally wore out today. I think I've had it for about ten years, and it's been looking scruffy for several months. It's a shame to throw it out, but it's not really suitable for wear now, I just can't replace it with an exact replica because of its age.

I decided to bite the bullet upgrade my phone a few days ago. I've been considering it for a while (lack of internal memory in my old phone was becoming irritating), and my wonderful husband knew a good deal I could use (it's actually better than the plan he's on at the moment). The upgrade finally finished this afternoon, when my old number was transferred to my new phone. I'm waiting for a case to arrive for my new phone (the screen isn't protected at the moment), but in the meantime I used some funky, self-patterning wool and knitted a phone sock. My old phone will (eventually) replace my MP3 player. I'm waiting for a larger memory card to arrive. I can't replace my MP3 player with a like for like any more, because the company that made it have stopped making MP3 players. Maybe they're considered out of date now. I still refuse to get an iPod.

Frosty Fence by potternutter
Frosty Fence
Out for a walk this morning, and I just couldn't resist. I've wanted to get a macro photo of frost for ages.

Taken on 30th December 2014 using a SonyDSC-HX50 digital camera.

The last time I saw you
In that hospital bed
You were gasping for breath
Spirit trying to hold on
While your body gave up the fight
But that isn't how I remember you

I remember your brilliant smile
The day I went to see you
Three hours on the train
For one hour by your side

I remember the nights at dancing
Guiding you through a move
Feeling oh so proud
The next time you succeeded

I remember Sunday afternoons
Watching the motor racing together
Trying not to disturb you
While you snoozed in your chair

I remember coming home from work
Seeing you in your chair
Ready to listen with a kind ear
And offer gentle words of support

I remember party nights at Guides
Celebrating with my friends
You always came to collect me early
And joined in with the party!

I remember you teaching me many things
History, engineering and languages
I remember your patience
And the days you helped me to ride my bike

I remember all of this
And ever so much more
The evenings at the theatre
And days out in the countryside

I hope I will see you again
When the time is right
But for now there is one thing I must say
Goodnight, dear father
I'm proud of who you were
The Last Time I Saw You
Inspiration struck on National Poetry Day. A difficult subject for me, and one that I'm only really beginning to accept after three years.

Newark and Long Bennington from Barrowby Church by potternutter
Newark and Long Bennington from Barrowby Church
Same day as the photo of Lincoln Cathedral. Another one using full 30x zoom on my Sony DSC-HX50 camera. My husband and I were trying to work out which church (centre of photo) we could see. We didn't have any binoculars handy, so I used my camera instead. To the right of the church is the sugar beet factory at Newark on Trent, Nottinghamshire, England. Long Bennington is at the left of the photo, just below the arm for the power lines.

I enjoy writing and creating graphics. I sing, I dance, I do a little painting, I like to take photographs of places I've visited, and I absolutely love being outside surrounded by nature. I also have a slightly odd sense of humour, which runs in the family. Just recently I've been trying my hand at sketching some of my original characters - they can be found in my gallery.

Current Residence: Central United Kingdom
Favourite genre of music: New Age, 80s Rock, 90s Rock, 90s Pop, Country, Classical, Celtic, Soundtracks, Christian Rock
Operating System: Windows XP, Windows 7 or Linux (Ubuntu variation)
MP3 player of choice: Creative Zen X-Fi
Skin of choice: The one I'm sitting in.
Favourite cartoon character: Doc Hudson
Personal Quote: "I hope you find what you're looking for."
