Went to see ‘Toy Story 3‘ in 3D last night (and how fabulous everything looked through my specs..). Was thoroughly sucked into the pathos and humour. A glorious finale to the Toy Story story. Went home and vowed never, never, EVER to throw away my teddy. I’ve had him for 39 years, through school, college, work and travel. Gave him an extra cuddle because I was so glad I had never thrown him away. Go see the movie (and look after your toys).

Sunday morning coffee, steam curling in the sunshine.

I took loads of shots of this, and there were all kinds of amazing patterns and spirals, as well as colours shooting through.

Coffee was pretty fine, too.

Not quite a wild night of clubbing – and the only cutting loose involved a darning needle and thread. Finally getting around to mending children’s clothes. Waste not, want not.

I love the fluting on this light that has pride of place in our hallway.

Chilly days means a warming curry bubbling away on the hob.

Jars on the windowsill. I like the glass and the catches on the lids.

Poised on stilts over the water at the edge of Wellington harbour, this wee boathouse is the most cheerful in a row of them, between Balleana Bay and Greta Point. Snapped on the iphone (hence the grainy-ness) as I jogged past in the late afternoon sun.

Wouldn’t life always be that little bit more interesting if you lived here, at the mercy of the elements, sheltered by your scarlet tin roof and royal-purple weatherboards?

This shot was inspired by me looking for images that represent ‘Home’ as part of the April Megapixel challenge (see blogroll).  This two words sit high on the top of a wall that divides two rooms, and they can be viewed from both sides. The flash has made them look more stark and striking than in reality – but I like that.

How often do you clean behind your fridge? For us, clearly not often enough.

For the non-New Zealanders, this is a weta (not very alive, though) about 3 inches long. Just a baby.

Nice contrast with the shiny bead, I feel…

Candles burning brightly, with only a few lights twinkling outside. Computer running on battery. Husband champing at the bit to turn on the XBox:-(
