Hugh’s Weekly Photo Challenge: Week 16 – “Behind” — March 12, 2016

Hugh’s Weekly Photo Challenge: Week 16 – “Behind”


For Hugh’s photo challenge this week, we have been given ‘behind’ as our prompt. Now I know I have taken a few liberties but I just had to post this pic of Mr Grump bending over, opening up a box.

Now, the reason I took this photo is because  sometimes Mr Grump like to thrill me with his ‘twerking’ moves. Now look at that behind, is that a twerky, perky looking booty? Nope! I don’t think so either.

Still, bless him, he likes to think he has got it all going on, even though his bum is as flat as a pancake!

Hugh’s Weekly Photo Challenge: Week 15 – Under — March 2, 2016

Hugh’s Weekly Photo Challenge: Week 15 – Under

Roxy's Hoodie

A great prompt for Hugh’s Weekly photo challenge with ‘under.’ I thought I would share with you a photo of Roxy under her hoodie!

I thought it looked cute on her but she hated it  and acted as though it were a straight jacket, walking oddly and trying to get it off.

Sadly, it lasted less than 10 minutes!


Hugh’s Weekly Photo Challenge Week 12 – Games — February 14, 2016

Hugh’s Weekly Photo Challenge Week 12 – Games


For Hugh’ s weekly photo challenge this week, we were given ‘games’ which was chosen by Ronovan  who is looking after Hugh’s blog whilst he is busy settling into his new place.

Now I like games, especially charades. Things can get pretty ugly in our family when the board games come out, though, as everyone loves to win, and although no one will admit it, they are all competitive.

However, the games I am going for are the video games. I have to say, I love the Sims games and can spend hours on them, I also get right into my CSI games too,  pondering on the evidence and trying to find clues! I find them a great way to escape from ‘real life’ and lose myself for a while.



Hugh’s Weekly Photo Challenge: Week 11 – Rust — February 4, 2016

Hugh’s Weekly Photo Challenge: Week 11 – Rust

Rusty ring

This week I am pleased to be able to join in with Hugh’s Photo  Challenge.  The theme is ‘rust’, and I knew that I would be able to find something rusty somewhere around here! Well, actually I didn’t need to look very far at all.

Our poor old barbecue got rather knocked around this winter as it was pretty windy and it is looking rather sorry for itself. As you can see, the little extra ring at the side has got quite rusty too.

Our barbecue is our best friend during the warmer weather. We use it quite a lot, and it is always lovely when we invite some of the family over to join us. Mr Grump is in his element taking charge of the cooking, and he does a damn fine job of it too. Roll on spring!


Hugh’s Weekly Photo Challenge – Week 9: Stripes — January 21, 2016

Hugh’s Weekly Photo Challenge – Week 9: Stripes


I am so glad that Hugh’s photo challenge is back! I am still working on my photography skills so it the perfect challenge for me to have a go at!

Today we have the theme of ‘stripes.’ I could not think of anything obvious, and was not impressed by Mr Grump’s ‘helpful’ suggestion of taking a photo of him in his stripey jumper which makes him look like a rather elderly,  follically challenged ‘Dennis the Menace!’

However, whilst out walking with Roxy this morning I thought the clouds looked rather stripey.

What do you think?

Hugh’s Photo Challenge Week 6: Unused — November 15, 2015

Hugh’s Photo Challenge Week 6: Unused

I had to wrack my poor brains this week for Hugh’s Photo Challenge  as he wanted us to photograph something ‘unused.’

Now that is no mean feat in this house, as everything we have gets used, and if it doesn’t, it is something that is chucked in a cupboard, but has been used.

I know this is a  bit of a cop-out, but it is the only thing I can think of. I bought this dress at the end of the summer as I really love the colours and unusual design. I haven’t had the chance to wear it yet, though, and it still has the tags on it,  so I think this counts as unused!
