It is almost a truism that when I aim my camera at a bird, it flies away. I therefore focussed on this thrush through the window. This time it gave me a chance. Not until it turned and looked at me did it flee from its shrubbery hide.
This afternoon I printed the last set of Poppy pictures to be entered in the album that Jackie is keeping.
I then scanned the last few of the 1985 black and white negatives.
Here are two scenes of the countryside, in the form of fence and woodland;
two of Sam with the children’s adopted dog, and one Louisa showing all the signs of being ready for bed.
Back home we spent Christmas Day at my parents’ home in Rougemont Avenue, Morden. Here are Dad and my brother Joseph;
and Louisa and Sam with Jessica in the background.
The rest of that Christmas visit was filmed in colour.
This evening Jackie collected our usual delicious meal for two from Mister Chatty Man Chan at Hordle Chinese Take Away, and, as is the norm, we consumed half of it. I drank more of the cabernet sauvignon.
