Hunt the pic final day

Today is the last day for submissions. I had started this post yesterday and committed the fatal error of saving it to drafts. Gone.

So this is my second shot at it. 
Here are all the categories and I'd got up to number 8. 


9. THOUGHT - using screenshot photos for this category



This one above makes me laugh.
This one below makes me sad.


10. GLANCE


I can easily see what I need at a glance.

11. SPECTACLE


Rarely am I see outdoors without my anti wrinkle defence system, aka sunglasses, of which I have loads. Tenuous link - spectacle - spectacles! 

12. INSPIRATION 



Harry on his first day in Year one just three weeks ago. If he can be so successful at school with the little vision he has, then I can do anything.

13. SIGHT

14. BEAUTY 
A pint of cold shandy on a warm, sunny day.

15. ARRANGEMENT
Largest flower arrangement ever? 

16.  GRACE


I bet there have been a few 'Your Grace's' round this posh din table at Castle Howard.

17. WEAKNESS - Oh I have so many! 
Choosing was tricky 
But 
I cannot resist the lure of new wool and a new pattern! Especially at bargain prices. 

18. ELEGANCE 
The most elegant room in my house! 


19. SMELL or AROMA
The perfume from my Rhapsody in Blue rise in full bloom is sweet and does stop people at my front wall to lean over for a sniff! 



20. HAPPINESS 
My house all decked up for a cosy Christmas. 

And now fingers crossed, thus post does not do this 

Like it's been doing for ages. I've reposted the photos from Number 13 about six times now! I cannot be bothered to do it again!! 

Lots of love from

Hunt the Pic challenge with Mum

I'm already a day late so completing days 1 and 2 here of http://mumssimplylivingblogat.blogspot.co.uk/2016/09/hunt-pic-day-2.html

I admit some of these might be a very tenuous link Mum!

Here we go...


1. DREAM 

This photo represents my dream holiday. In Wales, all four of us together. It's a distant dream now because one has already flown the nest. 

2. POSSESSION

I have SO MANY THINGS that I struggled to choose mainly because as a classic hoarder, ALL the things are my favourite! Also, the rules state you have to hunt the pic not take a new one! Treasured possessions I don't have a photo of include my bloved Nanna's stainless steel teapot, my darling Auntie  Laura's squirrel clothes brush, my Panda bear and Teddy Borbors I had since I was a baby, my superking size bed and hundreds and hundreds of pictures and makes my two have presented me with over the tears! 
But above is the diamond eternity ring presented to me from the HG for 21 years together at Christmas 2013. 

3. PASSION


Easy - going to gigs! Especially Muse. That's my passion. 

4. WONDER 

Last year's dramatic rare sky. Like a magnetic something or other a bit Northern Lighty, it was amazing and I couldn't decide which photo from my selection to show. 

5. SOURCE


Part of my source, my great Grandfather killed in the First Word War. 

6. TUNE OR SONG 

The song is Fat Bottomed Girls by Queen. This is my bike. I am fat bottomed. 
"Get on your bikes and ride
Ooh yeah oh yeah them fat bottomed girls
Fat bottomed girls
Yeah yeah yeah
Alright, ride 'em, c'mon
Fat bottomed girls, yes yes" 

( I was going to post a photo from a different Muse gig when they played my favourite song as it evokes such strong memories but in truth I could probably post a Muse gig photo for ALL of these categories! ) 

7. WINK


Eyes are very precious, so here's one of my favourite photos of Harry. If you are not sure of the link - it's in my side bar xx 

8. COMFORT 

Sliding into a warm hot tub after a day out walking is the best feeling of comfort ever! 
My dithering self couldn't choose really betwixt this and a shot of my roaring coal fire! 

And that's it for now! I'm up to speed with Mum. I've loved looking back at my photos and have felt quite ruthless in honing them down for one to share!! 

Back tomorrow with the next lot. 

Lots of love from 

Rachel *best get ready for work* Radiostar xxx
