No diaries .. just chaos

I figure that some one has speeded up the world so it is spinning faster... there just doesn't seem to be enough hours in the day just now.

Went back to work last Monday after 11 days or so off and hit the ground running..... tight deadlines alround....

Had my NVQ 4 (degree foundation) 4000 word assignment in Management and Leadership to complete by Friday close of play.. managed to get it done by 16.45... phew!! (why oh why do I volunteer for such stuff I have enough qualifications already .. plus I type so slowly plus have typo problems !!

Home from work on Friday then off to Mums in Southport to be ready and up and at it to decorate her lounge next day .....
Saying that it was a fabulous drive there was the most amazing mackerel sky and awesome sunset... I drove the whole way 'ooing and arring ' at the colours and the photo opportunities I missed whilst on the motorway. I got to Southport at 20.00 and hurtled to the beach and caught the last of the sunset

Saturday was spent covering myself in paint ... oh yes and the ceiling (ceilings seem to be my thing apparently !) in my Mums lounge whist my brothers did the walls and skirting boards...

Had a nice lie in this morning then Teen and I went to the Lowry Centre. I needed a new work suit and she needed a sketch book for college.

Managed to capture some great reflection photos whilst we were there though!

I know I have been neglecting the decade that is the 70s ... but never fear I will be back at it ... in the mean time whilst emptying cupboards etc at Mums I came across these 2 LPs ... classic early 70s
surely their teeth must have been painted in ???

The Bachelors - on the cutting edge of the happening scene, doing a bit of gentle rock climbing and having a round of golf - I can see why they were bachelors ......

Amazing sunset. I've never heard the expression "mackerel sky" before

Excellent photos as usual, love those reflections. When you said the Lowry Centre, I thought you were going to show us loads of his paintings rather than a shopping expedition. I loathe and detest shopping unless it is done from my laptop.

70steen said...

never fear GW I always combine shopping with culture .. the Lowry exhibition in Salford is brilliant .. so much of his stuff that is NOT Matchstick men (which I don't like) but his sheer talent as an artist with his sketches and eye on life as it was ...[have just loaded the images onto my Flickr]

gitwizard said...

OhmyGod, that was frightening, just went to look at Flickr and must have rolled over The Bachelors link (what will the guy in the flat below me think? I have my credibility to maintain you know!)

70steen said...

Fractastic photos sis... and truly you are a sweetheart for being so attentive to your mum's needs.

I miss seeing you about, but don't mind sharing you with your mum and teen. (lol, I'm so generous...)

70steen said...

Thank you dear Frac ... Mum is elderly and she still has her own BIG house (sheesh) so there is lots to keep up on ....

Normal service will be resumed very soon I promise xx
