fb drove me to blogging!

Well, finally, I've been driven to creating my own blog (or is that re-creating - we've had a couple of family blogs that are now defunct... fallen victim to 'lots- lack of time syndrome' - let's see if this one can last a little longer...)
I really just wanted to upload a couple of photos onto facebook. But it seems that it doesn't like me. Or perhaps it doesn't like my web browser...
It used to let me upload photos, but only with the 'simple uploader' - don't be fooled by the name though, because the simple one was far cleverer than the standard model - it actually worked!
It appears that the simple uploader is no more, so here we are..
I'm sure I can think of something to say every now and then. Probably mainly related to my crafty (but definitely not crappy!) attempts.
There may even be a tutorial or two.
And perhaps even the occasional blather about life in my house...
We'll see.
So if you want to see the post that got all this started, read on.
It all happened one frosty morning.

One Frosty Morning

One frosty morning (actually 2 frosty mornings: Yesterday - the inspiration; Today - the action!), the Princess and I headed out for an adventure.

The Princess dressed for adventure (excuse the not-quite-finished hat that mummy made, must finish now she's decided she likes it!):

"I'm happy Mummy!"

It sure was an adventure - it was below zero here. Pretty cold for Sydney!

We were inspired by the beautiful frost-cloaked settings around about where we live. So off we went to take some photos.

beauty in the detail

The Princess even had a chance to get up close and personal with some ice crystals (or 'sprinkles' to use the correct terminology).

Enjoy! (and please excuse the crappy lay-out - I'll get better at this! Promise!)
