Kentish skies

I have been lucky enough to visit 
and live in many town and countries
IF you severely twisted my arm,
Kent is the probably place 
I would choose as home...
I think...

In mid December I visited with my folks in Kent.
One day on the short drive home, 
after a shopping trip I tried to capture the view from the car window... at speed!

Mum stopped the car so I might capture the thick bank of cloud dividing the sky

  1. Lovely skies .. Kent is one of those places, like Cornwall, that I have read about in novels and want to visit .. thanks for the peek

  2. Yes, I remember laughing as we chased the sunset, looking for a place from where you could get a good shot, and ended up facing a farm gate. Wish I knew how to get pics from my phone to the time Saz?

  3. I particularly love the textures of the 4th photo - looks almost like a textile, the trees are so tangible - Beautiful, Saz - you have such creative talents xxx

  4. What lovely atmospheric shots!Take a gold star...

  5. What a lovely thing to do with your mum. My dad would never stop the car for a photo of the sky!! Very beautiful,lovely idea for a friday.

  6. Very beautiful shots of the sky. Your mom is so sweet :)

  7. Pretty skies. I like that bank of clouds that cut across the sky.

  8. It's over 30 years since I was last in Kent - I remember how beautiful it is. :)

  9. Your skies are beautiful. My daughter and I are planning a trip to your country and I do want to see some blue sky when we come ;-)

  10. like these sky shots...lovely.

  11. Beautiful and I love that they're driving shots.

  12. Very pretty. So nice of your mum to know you'd want to photograph and stop for you.

  13. For a minute I thought you were driving and taking photos at the same time! Hows things?

  14. Great sky!! :o) Love the clouds..

  15. Really great collection of colour and beautiful photos.

  16. I used to go parachuting in Headcorn, Kent. Ahhhhhhhh, happy memories! Beautiful shots, thanks for bringing a smile to my face.

  17. Lovely shots

    and here is AMy W pre drugs!! SHe does look better than she has recently -

    And I have some awards for you too - drop over :)

  18. Hi
    Not sure where I've found you. Why is it everybody in the world takes better photos than me. Nice blog. Will be back.

  19. Gorgeous. My friend has a house on a sort of cliff in Kent overlooking the weald and it's absolutely spectacular. In fact, if I could have any house anywhere I wanted, I would steal hers for the view.

  20. Winter can be dull but it does gives us some wonderful skies.

  21. I like Kent too...especially Leeds castle. Great photos Saz and thanks for the lovely comments over at mine. Hope you and yours are well. Be in touch soon hopefully :) Hxx

  22. I think there has to be one place where each of us would settle down. Even those people who say they can never settle down.

    CJ xx

  23. I'm going to learn to start taking my camera with me so I can grab lovely shots like these! Well done!

  24. The sky has a lot to offer, fickle bleeding bluish thing. Nice!

Thanks for stopping by!

Take the weight of your feet, draw up a chair and pour yourself a cuppa. Leave your troubles at the door and together we shall ride out the storms.
I will walk a while in your shoes...

Tesco - every little helps

Last year I bought myself a new camera online from Tesco. One of those emails arrived in my inbox with a 'deal of the day'  and for me the camera was the dog bollocks, in as much as it had a large 8 mega pixel whatsit .... and a large LCD, and yes I do like things big.. say no more! Oh and it is red! which is almost as good as purple but not quite, like size colour of inanimate objects does matter. It was a great price and the bonus was that it came with a, yes you guessed it, large  memory card. Total cost £74.
It arrived quickly but not with the promised memory card, so I contacted Tesco and they apologised, told me they'd run out and would credit me for the cost of the memory card. I found to my surprise a credit of £36.99 in my bank account, so the camera was only £37! I bought the same memory card from Amazon for a few pounds only, so a  result, thank you Tesco!
A few weeks ago my girlfriend's washing machine broke down in its last month before the 12 month warranty…

What a difference....

a year makes!

It has taken me the better part of the last month, to access my blogs (and Moannie's) as I feared it had alas been removed from the ether. Playing around with passwords and email addresses...I'm in again.

My last post , just 10 months ago...burst my seams, as again I realised how so much has changed!

I'm still,  in my new wee home, with Joey (dog) and Monty (cat).

My lovely son has returned from uni in the USA, attained a First Class degree and started work in London last Autumn as a writer...the world his oyster for the taking! My hero!

My beautiful daughter is in Leeds, amid her Midwifery degree, working at a Brazilian first class restaurant, all loved up with the Spanish Chef.... a meeting is on the cards AND he is taking her to meet his Mama is Spain this summer, so must be serious methinks! So proud!

My hugely supportive brother (TOAOS) is living contently in the Garden of England with his wife and Harry the cutest dog!!

My younger and what a stunner sis…


..and here we are firmly into a new year and I am sitting up wide awake in bed, yet again... I am reflecting upon what was in 2013 and what wasn't.

The 'what wasn'ts ' are left where they are, filed and duly noted, I shall unremember them.

However for the 'what was' ' and that which I choose to bring with me into 2014, are the things that are memorable, enriching, happy and surprising, be them the tiniest fragment of joy or the biggest new thing on the block!

I didn't get off to a great start in January as we had only recently lost Mumma a few months before, the countdown to my son's second year of uni starting mud summer in the States and i was in the middle of a roller-coaster of negotiations trying to secure a business lease and plan for a potential opening. I wasn't at my best and i was running low on fuel.

However as always when faced with a challenge I was defiant and rose to several occasions, decisions with all the positivity I could mus…
