Friday again....

Why are the days flying by so fast? Has something happened that has made the hours seem shorter - i swear i only just wake up, get 'normal' stuff done and its bed time, it also seems to jump from Tuesdays to Fridays......AND Christmas coming just a little too quickly this year!! Thankfully most of that is taken care of as I WON a PS3 a couple of weeks ago - the kids dont know about it and ive managed to keep it secret so far haha!!

Todays prompt at HS:MS is lock - its supposed to be one with a key but the locks are all boring and i didnt read the prompt properly before i took the pic!! sorry!!


Do you see this photo? Do you think im going mad taking a picture of an empty basket? Do you have kids? If you answered yes to the last one you will realise why i had to take a picture of this monumental occasion!! MY IRONING BASKET IS EMPTY!! Now wasnt it right to take a picture of the empty basket - this marks a sight i may never see again LOL. Now, the washing basket is a whole other story - and a whole other photo which im just not up to sharing (maybe some therapy will get me to share but for now my little Everest that is my washing pile will remain hidden from blogsville!) ;)

I took this picture of Ben as he was running around the field doing normal kid stuff, football/chase etc.......so why do i feel so sad looking at it? Could it be that i can see hes growing up and not so much my little boy anymore? Could it be that i can see the man he is turning into - hes only 11 and meant to still be a kid but his attitude is changing everyday, hes willing to argue more and stand up for what he believes. This is a good thing, just something im not sure im ready for yet :(

What a lovely little lock you have there!

You've interpreted 'lock' in your own way - it's great. As for the basket - congratulations!

I think it is the right interpretation too! Well done! And I laughed at your story about your ironing basket! So good!! *lol*

interesting lock, safes don't have keys yet they still lock so yours is a good interpretation! Mom is so excited about her bag, and if there is a delay in the post I may need to test drive it before forwarding it onto her, lol :)

Well done (tee hee) getting to the bottom of your ironing basket, pity it won't stay like that for long!

Lovely lock and i too LOVE an empty wash and ironing basket. mmmm well have to say I have a char 4 times a week. She has been with me for 20 years and although i do not need her so often she needs a job. She has become a dear friend.

You're the only person so far to do a chain lock! Love it!

Love the angle of the lock photo, nice.

Congrats on the empty basket, I haven't seen the bottom of mine for a long, long time, lol!

I've nominated you for an award, it's on my blog. You can copy the photo and paste it into your own blog, then nominate 5 worthy people to receive the award from you.
