Miscellaneous Mondays #1

DarylE has wondered up this great theme for Mondays (monochrome or not) for all those photos we've taken and they don't seem to fit into any obvious category. Thus, here commences a 'mish mash' of the miscellaneous!

'Leaning on a lamp-post.....'
Midnight Regent Street, London


  1. Saz, this is so reminiscent of those wonderfully atmospheric photos of Paris - I love this.

    I too hope that Johnny gets better very soon - What a turn of fate this is, non?!

    Love to you, my pal, hope you're not running yourself reckless - Rest well, take care, Fhi xxx

  2. This is a wonderful photo, Saz. I just love it!

  3. Very atmospheric, Sazzie. Do you wonder, as I do, at the hustle and bustle of London at midnight? I always feel so provincial, staring open-mouthed at the Capital at play.

  4. What a wonderful shot! It too makes me thinks of those photos of Paris ...

  5. Isn't this fun? Now you've got a niche for all those oh so fascinating shots you snap but then don't know what to do with! Love this .. its ominous and involving .. thanks for joining in ..

  6. Hey Saz,

    I don't have an eye for taking photos, but I love this one. It almost takes my breath away, as if I can just step into it from here. There's something almost mysterious about it.

    I like it.

  7. It's perfect. I love the color of the headlights reflected in the street.

  8. Very moody. I love street scenes at night.

    Merry Christmas to you and yours, Saz!

  9. oooh i like it. kind of film noirish. so moody.

  10. Hi found your blog via BMB and a very funny comment which you left on someones blog re: teenagers and going out. It made me laugh out loud!
    Beautiful photo.

  11. I wonder how long that bicycle was there before someone nicked it?!

  12. this one MUST be destined for Red Bubble!!!!!!!! Simply fabulous!!! Love it!!!! Merry Christmas, dearest Saz!!! Love you~Janine XO

  15. Happy Christmas and all the best for 2010 FFF and all your family! Have a good one! Hadriana xx

  16. Oh, I love this picture. It is so beautiful! It totally speaks to me! And clearly, so many other people as well! Perfect! Merry Christmas!

  17. That is simple and beautiful. Gives a real sense of peace and yet wonderment. I like it!

    Saz, have yourself a wonderful holiday, k. Let's make some awesome memories and spoon up some fabulous eats. Then we'll return to table to exchange stories.

    much love,

  18. Oh lovely. Very interesting light effects, and the subjects together seem incongruous--all that to say, what a great shot.

    Here from Hilary's site at The Smitten Image.

  19. I would hang this in my house! Lovely. Happy Holidays, Saz.

  20. I'm back to say congrats darling, a POTW mention...cheers!

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…


..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…

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…
