Which countdown? I hear you ask...

....the countdown to the day(s) the children go back to school :D:D:D:D:D:D:D 

I love my children dearly, but having three ADHD children at home for six to seven weeks is wearing. We are off with friends for a week on an adventure to finish off the holidays...ssh, its a secret...they don't know what we are doing :)... and then there will be the final mad dash to make sure they haven't forgotten anything they need for school. There is always something, regardless of the fact that at the start of the holidays I made lists of what they said they needed and have been out and bought it all. I can feel hundreds of parents mentally nodding their heads at that one :D ....and I always buy shoes at the end of the holidays otherwise they grow out of them too fast - the record holder being my eldest who had a growth spurt the week he went back to school (he was in primary, fortunately) and I had to buy a whole new set of everything!!

It has been an eventful holiday break for several reasons. We have had a heat wave, the tail end of a hurricane, Seagulls nesting on the roof, a rescued seagull chick living on our patio, my eldest daughter leaving home and my youngest daughter ending up with a cast on her wrist from a fall...she slipped on gravel coming down a hill. She is really cheesed off as it has stopped her cycling for the last half of the holidays.

I am now off to sort out final bits and pieces for our trip, so I will catch up with everyone when I get back into the studio on 1st September :)

I have been absent from dA for the last few weeks because the school holidays have hit in the UK. Two teenagers and a hyperactive 6 year old are a full time job when they are out at school, so the holidays are hectic. Keeping track of my teenage son-which friend is he stopping with this time-is the easiest of the lot..as long as I know where to find them in an emergency he can spend his summer adventuring around the countryside with his friends..it will build confidence and self reliance as well as keep him occupied :) My teenage daughter has not fared so well. We were out at a local gala at the weekend and she slipped and banged her arm.....45mins and an ice pack later and the swelling had not reduced so a trip to the local A&E ensued. Fortunately it was not broken, however muscle damage is no walk in the park either and it is now in a splint for a week. She is not a happy camper as she cannot cycle at the moment. My youngest is actually fairly easy to keep occupied, he loves construction toys, art and minecraft :D

I am still able to spend some time in my studio, and will be uploading some art when I can get enough time on my pc to scan, edit and upload it...I have a small one waiting to go on minecraft, so I will be off for now ;)

Yacht Club Jetty At Sunset by Harrisons-Forge
Yacht Club Jetty At Sunset
As a photographer, you can generally pick faults in an image till the cows come home. This is one of those rare occasions when I downloaded my camera and the shot had worked exactly as I wanted it to. Digital cameras often don't pick up the finer subtleties of colour, especially in sunsets. Not so on this occasion. The only thing I needed to do was straighten it up! I had been laying on the sand to get the angle I wanted and hadn't noticed the horizon slip away from true horizontal...I think it was only half a degree off, but that sort of thing screams at me, so I fixed it.

Stone Jetty Eggs by Harrisons-Forge
Stone Jetty Eggs
Part of the Tern project these eggs form a loose circle on the Stone Jetty. I am not sure which bird they represent, or whether they are representative of seabirds in general. They are great fun for kids to clamber over in the warmer weather.

I'm Floating In The Air by Harrisons-Forge
I'm Floating In The Air
I love it when you take a photograph or see an image that makes you look twice. I got that when I first looked at this image when I downloaded my camera.  The lighting conditions were perfect to create the optical illusion and the image is more confusing if you turn it the right way round!
