One slip and bang! flat on your back

The mist was so very pretty this morning, so I went out to take some photos - not a good thing to do whilst wearing Ugg Boots ;(

such a pretty view

Ooops .... one slip ..........
 down on the ground I go ....... flat on my back
my elbow hurts, my ankle hurts, my head hurts
but ....... I didn't drop the camera ;-)
after a few minutes of laying on the ground checking myself that
I had not done any serious damage I took photos ;-)

 one of the very few times I have been thankful of carrying around a bit of extra padding

The skid mark on the pavers

yep!  the camera still works - phew!!

The week that was ...........

............. interesting - see my other post HERE to see how the week ended ;(

Last weekend, our long awaited new television arrived - a Panasonic 60" Plasma - after placing an order on 29th June 2012, it was finally delivered on Saturday, 18th August 2012.

We eagerly set it up and commenced our TV viewing for the weekend - YAY

On Tuesday morning, we turned it on to watch one of our breakfast TV shows, 'Today' and it went BANG and there was a smell of burning!  NOT HAPPY JAN!

A service technician was called and yes, there has been a major failure, we will be going out and organising a replacement television later today.

Luckily, we still had the old Panasonic as we had relocated into the formal lounge, so we were able to bring it back into the family room - I couldn't imagine being without a television for any length of time now

here is the new, but slightly broken television - looks like it is in the 'naughty time out' position, up there facing the curtains ;-)

I will say that Chris, the Salesman from The Good Guys, Gepps Cross, has been great - after our initial apprehension of what was going to happen, we are now very confident in having a good outcome ;-)
Stay tuned for our replacement!

This week was a week of  breakdowns ...... my new washing machine (bought at Christmas) decided to start leaking.   I put in a service call and had to wait until Thursday for the technician, but hubby seems to have fixed in the mean time - it appears to be just a washer/O-ring in the hose - so all fixed and service call was cancelled!

They say it happens in threes ;-( so I am just waiting for number three!

This week has also been an interesting week with our weather here in Adelaide - very cold, wet and windy!

A night out

We had a wonderful night out last night to celebrate the nephew's First Communion
at Assaggio 

the food was delicious, service was wonderful and the cake was so yummy!

This saying caught my eye ;-)
I wonder what that says about me ;-)

Entertained by Denis Smith and the Ball of Light

I had the most wonderful evening at Port Adelaide Camera Club on Tuesday night.

Denis Smith was our guest speaker - you may have heard of him from his Ball of Light series ;-)

It was an absolute pleasure to meet him, and he had us all laughing at his antics when he demonstrated just how he goes about creating his photos ;-)

Full Moon

The moon was so incredibly bright the other night, so I grabbed the tripod and took a few shots.
