You might have noticed an addition to fulltiming this morning, Piclens. I love this program. If you click on the view slideshow it will give you a show, I intend adding lots of these over the next few months. Once you are there you can also do a search (look in the top right cornef) for anything that takes you fancy. It brings up a variety of great pictures

Nice summer so far

Its proving a lovely summer. The children broke up from scholl last week and since then its been sun and more sun. Today is no different and when I went over for a shower today the sun was streaming through the trees.
I am waiting for a call from Shane and we are going to pop over to Leeds. One of the things about the North is the amount of large towns close together. I am fast thinking that if we ever wanted to expand the business again the north would be the place to do it.
Shona and Jessica are going to head over to help Sally start to get their house ready for renting out

The Dog Show

What a show, it took them 2 hours just to enter everyone. We had a good day with a steady flow of customers who all loved what we did. Working outside all day when you are not totally used to it really tires you out so we decided to stya at Vinces and Julie’s for another night. Git to get going soon though as we have prints to sort ready for a trip to Essex tomorrow

Off to Newcastle

We are off to Newcastle today to see some friends Vince and Julie. We are going to photograph a dog show they are organising tomorrow but going to make a weekend of it. We decided not to go in the RV but instead we are going to stay in their RV so it will be like home from home.

Yesterday was a bit rough. It rained all day, the whole area had an electrical cut which was interesting as all we did was switch on the inverter  for electric and switch the fridge to gas – living in an RV has its advantages

Time evaporates

I got up quite early this morning, logged on and then went to a new forum a good friend of mine, Chris from Devizes had put me onto. The site is called and is mainly USA based. Compared with a lot of the UK forums I go on it is very upbeat and positive.Two hours have now vanished as I have read loads and even posted on it, I think it will take up a lot more of my time.

Yesterday was spent in argument with Shona – fantastic. I think we have spent long enough on one site and we are ready to move on. Problem we have is our two sons are saying they are coming to see us next week and it will be an ideal site as it has very good facilities. We will have to see how it all goes I guess.

I am going to try to fit a second TV today. I am mentioning it as I have been trying to get around to it for ages and I thought that if I mentioned it to the world I would get on with it. I also need to rewire the front TV as at the moment it powers off the starting batteries which is no good at all.

Busy day

The day started with a trip to the MOT centre and the car flew through the test – fantastic. It was a case of a quick breakfast and then off to the wedding.

After meeting Jo, the bride at her home it was off to the church, and what a church it is. Just outside Stowmarket you leave the road and crive down a half mile track to get there. It was a beautiful wedding and I got some great shots. Stewart, the groom and Jo invited me to the wedding breakfast and then in the evening I set up a studio for the evening guests.

After such a long day I decided to stay at the hotel, which is where I am now. The Three dongle I am using is fantastic here and is really flying. It is usually good but this is the best I have ever had it

Fantastic weather

We had a great day yesterday with superb weather and its forecast for the rest of the week. We all satin the sun by the RV and the others from the site joined us. Jessica enjoyed having all the people around, she is really getting into the socialising bit. Chris loved the dog pictures we did for her and wants to order a printed book which will be interesting to do.
We also helped Vic and Karen get their fifth wheel advertised. Its a cracking machine and someone will get a great dealpict0202.jpgThere are more photographs here

A busy day ahead

Got a busy day ahead today – four portrait sittings to get through, photos to deliver etc. I hope the nature pure pressure vessel arrives. NP are sending it free and gratiuos which is fantastic. Its strange having had the filter in place for a year now you miss it somehow!

We also bought a small tow car off ebay last night. Its a small Fiat with an A frame. We are a bit worried because the seller has not contacted us to arrange when we can collect. Are we being inpatient I wonder but it is worrying.

Yesterday we were connected to the internet all day from 4.30am to 10pm. Connection was all via the little vodaphone express card. I have to say I am very impressed with it. A number of people had pointed out that the red text on black background was hard ot read so I am experimenting with different colours. Please let us know what you think by way of the comment entry.

We also added google adds. Its been interesting to watch the different ads show up – from motorhome sites to dating I was confused by this at first and then I realised it was because we have a link to fantasy flowers – a site owned by our friends Mandy and Dave. With  name like fantasy I dread to think what google might send our way lol
