Space Station

The International Space station has been making spectacular appearances over the UK for the past few days, and it seems that there is ‘space fever’ all around.  Twitter is full of it, with lots of amazing images of the space station as it passes overhead.  I wish I could say my images were amazing, but they’re not.  I did get an image of the moon, however, with Mars just above it.  Image

The Space Station is a little more difficult to photograph, if you only have a point and shoot camera.  It moves too fast!  It was an amazing site though, and apparently is going to be visible for a little while yet.  Fascinating.

A nice cup of tea

I really fancied a cup of tea today.  That may not seem unusual, but for me, well, it is.  I don’t drink a lot of tea, and I discovered when I put the kettle on, that I actually DIDN’T HAVE ANY.  That’s what happens when you don’t use something very often.  It’s like salt, or sugar; if you don’t use them very often, you forget to buy them.  However, I did find this, lurking at the bottom of the tea caddy:Image

It was in the Graze Box

From a while ago.  And it was one of the nicest cups of tea I have ever tasted!  Must get some more of that, somehow… 

April

Oops – a little late, but better late than never.  Calendar picture for April:

No April showers this week though.  Here is a tiny little cute avenue of trees in bloom that I wandered past on my way to swimming the other morning:

Right in the middle of a built up area.  A bit of a gem.  The photos don’t do it justice, and I know it’s hardly beautiful countryside, but it is a delight to stumble across, through a tiny little alley-way at the back of the shopping centre.

I am grateful for this.  It’s the small things.
