OG - In the Olden Days, builders took 3 weeks holidays in January (our summer & school holidays). However nowadays some seem to continue regardless.
LINDA - Colours & hence photos on computers can be different, as are on OH’s & mine. I think it is something to do with settings.
ANNETTE – We don’t know design of house. It is wait-and-see unless I hear our other back neighbour in her back yard and yell over the fence. She may not know either.
2010 was the wedding year in our family. Also the year I started seriously photo-ing churches.
I have tried to cull my books, donating unwanted novels to nearby charity bookshop. I have been through bookshop C-mas catalogue and noted all the books I would like to read – but borrowing from library. Cheaper and no storage problem.
No nanny duty this week. I have an important date at twins’ kindy – their end-of-year concert this pm. Photos may only be taken after the event, not the outdoors performance, as one parent objected. I don’t photo other kids and if anyone accidentally appears, I crop picture or blur the faces. I even blur car number plates when parked in front of churches etc. Once again minority rules because some idiots misuse social media.
AQ: Oh my, I sympathize with you re the sole objecting parent. I'm sure some parents will sneak photos though - we typically take videos! Re the business with color reproduction, etc. I took my photo of the flames on the iPhone, which typically does a good job rendering true colors; didn't bother to move it to the laptop.. Not sure at what point Lindy's photo paled.... Do have fun at the end-of-year concert. Kiddies put so much into them - and the teachers too.
Heather: My external drive is also My Passport I periodically copy all my Docs and photos onto it (but probably not often enough).
Lindybird: New bookcases equals another opportunity to downsize. My OH has a small bookcase in the bedroom - also jammed - and now we have two piles of books on his bedside table :-( Like AQ, I keep the library in business.
Nice and sunny today.
