I've been tagged!

By the lovely Jen from Painted Fish Studio.

It's the old 6th photo folder, 6th photo thingo. So here goes!

This is me on Carbis Bay beach in Cornwall. My parents-in-law live there and DH took the picture, this is why I am so small! We took this pic at Easter 2007! There are some other lovely photos in the folder which remind me how nice staying in the UK is. The weather in 07 was fantastic, or at least at Easter - I'm wearing a vest for heaven's sake! I haven't worn a vest in the past 18 months!

Tornado 60163

MY steam engine! I built it! (Well I filled and sanded the wheels and reamed bolt holes in the bogey and radiused most of the frames and spotfaced bolt holes etc etc)

I look quite demented in that top picture - it was the first time I'd seen the thing working and I worked on it 9 years ago so of course I got a bit emotional! The platform was heavingly crowded with most folks staring at me, and someone said, "Oooh she's crying!". Yes well, there you go!

A lovely policeman took this photo for me at Waterloo.

I'm back!

I have returned from the arctic wastelands of er... Kent!

We had a lovely time, and we didn't actually get that much snow. I'm really dissapointed actually.

I came back to some book love though, The Reader, Twilight and Confessions of a Reformed Dieter, oh and Knitting for Dummies since I have to return my copy to the library!

I've spent most of the holiday stuffing my face with carbs and dealing with the subsequent carb comas! I'm back on my fit-wagon today but I decided to do a fast day, which is stupid cupid after a carb overload, my blood sugar is not happy at all. I eventually caved (I orginally typed "caked" - freudian!) at half 2 and had a cereal bar and an apple. I've just had another cereal bar because I was still hungry! Doh! I should've just had lunch.

While we were away I got an email that these delightful little mooks were reserved for me on etsy! Yipee!
