It’s nice to be back. It seems I timed my mid-week post break perfectly, due to an electrical storm causing damage to my computer and leaving me off-line for a period anyways. All fixed now. I learned a valuable lesson. To unplug things from the wall during a storm. Simply switching them off at the wall isn’t enough.
Thanks so much for the lovely birthday wishes and sweet surprises I received during the week. Since I started blogging early this year I’ve enjoyed getting to know so many amazing, creative, clever, funny, kind and wonderful people. It’s a beautiful blogging community out there. Thanks for making it so. xo
The Shadow Gallery collages this week feature one photo from each participant from last Sunday. If you’d like to participate in SSS, please do! Simply shoot a shadow, post it on your blog on Sunday (or close to Sunday), add your link to Mr Linky at the bottom of this post, and visit other players. Have fun!

Here's my Shadow Shot Sunday #22
A photo taken of a murky and shadowy pond. The bird, thinking it was a frog, jumped onto a lily pad. As it was slowly sinking a whirlpool formed around it creating an interesting pattern in the water. The second image is a cropped section of the water from the first photo. I like it better than the first pic. Trippy!
I was very happy with my pooch Sophie for finishing the SSS post last week. Sophie did such a fine job that I’m thinking of having her contribute to my blog occasionally in the future. That will not be happening until I’ve purchased Sophie her very own keyboard. It took me a long time to clean the grotty paw prints and slobber off mine last week. Ick! Sophie is a little piggy pooch! A loveable piggy pooch all the same.
Date claimer! The BrisStyle team are busily preparing for this super event. All the details can be found here on the blog. If you’re a local be sure to mark the date in your diary and come along. It promises to be a great day! While I’ll not have a stall set up on the day, I’ll be there doing the all-important coffee runs for my fellow BrisStyle members. I’ll also be running around like a loon buying all my Christmas presents. Yes, MY Christmas presents. I’m thinking whatever I buy I’ll not be wanting to part with! Also, something else fun will be happening in the BrisStyle camp in a couple of weeks and I’ll be shouting all about it here as soon as it kicks off! It’s going to be BIG! And fun! Did I already mention fun? Big & fun!
Ok, I do apologise for this SSS post being so long-winded. I'm just making up for lost time. I did actually have more to say but thought I’d better stop now as all this waffle may be a little coma inducing as it is. Happy Sunday! Perhaps I should yell it for the benefit of those who have nodded off. HAPPY SUNDAY!
