One of my birthday gifts was a small 'point and shoot' camera, small enough to slot into pocket or purse, perfect for those times when my big old camera is just a little on the cumbersome side. Due to the children indicating to both Nanny and Dad that I may have been dropping this hint for some time, and a slight communication technicality between the two, I now have two such cameras! We have since decided that one would be just perfect for Nanny.
And apparently my new Canon is just perfectly sized for small people. Here are just a sample of photos downloaded, none taken by me.
The Pierre de Ronsard, slowly creeping over the verandah, has just started blooming.
This beautifully shaped pear, caused shrieks and giggles every time the children entered the kitchen and witnessed it resplendant in the fruit bowl. We're big on 'bum humour' in this household!
A shot of Wallace's lunchbox, only half prepared. A handy keepsake! Possibly just proving to me that he did once take an apple to school.
Sal, surveying yet another of my hair-styles, a regular evening activity in these parts.
A blurry Jess, getting ready for school. Obviously dancing a jig at the same time, she'll do anything to get out of packing a lunch.
Dad, doing his thing. Please disregard dirty windows, an inadequate filing system and the stubby on desk.
From memory, this was dinner one late Sunday evening, having returned from Bottle Tree, tired cranky kids in tow.
This is where Sarah can usually be found, head in book.
