On the 20th day

I came across a blog post a short time ago and I thought the idea it contained was simply wonderful (we won’t mention that there’s now one day every month where there’s minimal effort required to post).  I promptly forgot about it, a post on that to follow – if I remember! (Ahem! Did I just hear someone sigh?)

Then today it was the most wonderful (well that word’s getting some use today) foggy frosty morning/afternoon/evening. My three favourite weathers, certainly to look out on from a warm house, are snow, fog and frost so when I thought about taking a photo of it today for posterity I remembered Attic24’s Year End Review View.

So hereon in on the 20th of every month I will take up to three pics from the front of the house, right, middle and slightly left – morning, afternoon and evening – regardless of the weather and with our climate it could make informing viewing for those of you in hotter climes.  And at some point I will take a photo of the busy by-pass in front of the houses at the rear of us just to counter balance our calm view!

Right

Middle

Slightly left

I forgot I had made no attempt to stop the camera date stamping everything and although the times are approximately correct – we are not yet at the point of getting freezing fog in JULY!

And Creative Space Thursday is back on at kootoyoo if anyone fancies a shufty. I, obviously, didn’t participate this week because my crochet tapeworm from yesterday hasn’t gotten any fatter today due to work and the ironing pile in my sewing room being at risk of getting cordoned off by Health & Safety.  In our house the ironing pile, or lack of one, is a barometer of how smoothly the ship is running.  Last night B had to tip one basket out in order to bring fresh washing (laundry) upstairs, he’s been going to work in crumplene* all week!

* Margaret/Sandy if that one doesn’t cross the language divide don’t hesitate, you might as well go for a hattrick.

  1. Stunning view you’ve got. I’m so jealous!

  2. I wish we had views like yours. No matter which way you look there are houses, oh the joy of being on a corner. If I win the lottery, I’m moving to the seaside.

  3. The views are beautiful. The real vocabulary test will be whether they know crumplene AND hattrick.

  4. Failed! Utterly. Unless the latter is something done with a rabbit… must say the middle shot is scruptydelicious – my own word, so you don’t have to go and search for it!

  5. Beautiful photos and such a lovely view you have. I know hattrick because of my sports-minded guy, but I’m guessing on crumplene.

  6. I used hattrick without even thinking about it being an issue. At least thanks to Dianne I now know it is used over the pond.

    A hattrick, hat-trick or hat trick (I don’t think I’ve seen this last one used except regarding a bunny but google liked it) is when in sport, generally football (sigh, soccer) a player scores three goals.

    Now crumplene is a play on crimplene which was a fabric made from polyester and was ‘heavy, wrinkle-resistant and retains its shape well’. Apparently it began to fall out of fashion in the ’70s but I certainly remember it well. Let’s just say you would queue up to wear it.

    Crumplene – Many moons ago when I worked for the FD of a small company. He was very into equal rites (I think his wife told him he was :D) and one day he stated to me, but in the general accounts office, that he had ironed his own shirt and one of my colleagues piped up and asked him if it was made of crumplene – a play on crimplene – virtually un-wrinkle-able and crumple! 😀
