End of the week

Well, I seem to have taken on adding more to other people's blog than anything here. Long may it continue, others deserve the attention. I'll sit here in the corner. Before I go though, there's a few more photos over on my Picasa space - Some of the ones worth filling the internet with from about 40 taken this week.

Hoping to get out and about with my new camera this weekend, expect to see that in a few weeks!

confused by my new camera

I have NEF files, it's like RAW but Nikon flavoured so all a bit odd.

Seven Things

So, I have no idea where it started but Twitter has been full of people linking to their "Seven Things You (probably) Dont Know About Me" Blog posts and then they 'tag' 7 other people to do the same thing. Well, just like the plague, when you see you friends (more on that later) going down with it you know its only a matter of time before you get it too. So, without further ado, here's mine:

Won) Friends.
I don't have many. I never have really. I am friends with lots of people who I work with but I don't have many friends outside of that. I know lots of people and I think I get on well with them, they don't seem to recoil when I am around and I can sometimes make them laugh which I think is a good thing. There are a growing number of people that I know via the internet and I would like to be able to call them friends despite never having met them or knowing what they look like, sound like or smell like.

Too) School
I hated it, partly because I was made to do homework by my mother and it stopped me doing what I would have preferred but mostly because of the bullying. I suffered mostly in my last two years but it made me hate, a lot. I guess thats gonna happen when 30 kids pick on you at once, oh and the tampon in the water bottle was plain nasty.

Fore) Work
I have only had two employers. I left college before completing my A levels and got an apprenticeship at a local council. When that ended I move to another council and worked there for 13 years in different jobs and then 9 years ago moved to my current employer. I like my job, I enjoy the surroundings and the colleagues company. I work with my wife and that goes just fine.

Phyve) Family
I love my family, in the broken state that it is in following my divorce 4 years ago. I miss my father - he died shortly before my 3rd birthday. I say miss but I am not sure that's possible. I didn't know him well enough to miss his voice or miss him do things for me, I just have a gap in my life where other people have a man.

Sicks) Camera
I have just bought - yesterday - a new camera. I am looking forward to enjoying photography again.

7) Who next
Apart from the fact that I had to do this list the other thing on my mind as I saw others doing their's was the fact that I would have to tag 7 other people. As you will have read number 1, you will appreciate that a limited number of friends will mean that its tricky getting together a list of 7 that haven't done their list already. Well here is my best shot:
@melodik; @chibialfa; @Hello_Nurse; @bobbyllew; @Tony_D; @Glinner; @Wossy
a star studded mix, maybe it will pay off, maybe I'll be ignored by everyone...

I missed out iii), due to lack of planning in my life there isnt anything much to tell about me. I (with my awesome wife Annette) own 8 horses. Have that as an extra thing
