Keeping the Children Busy

May 17, 2009

A few snapshots from the April / Easter school holidays. I thought there might be something in this – “baby’s first SLR camera,” perhaps.


Grandparents take note: invest in a Nintendo Wii and be amazed at how often the grandchildren visit.

20090405entertainingchildren3It’s my theory that every 4 year old is ready to learn how to operate a Digital SLR.

We’ll start her on the Nikon D40 before she graduates to the D90.



This photo entertained me. For some reason certain members of my husband’s family decided to strain the sausages out of the goo mix,

which resulted in a gruesome looking series of photos.


Go to a playground, hand a DSLR to a little kid, and enjoy the surprises that await when looking at the photos afterwards. Life is different when viewed from closer to the ground.


Frustrations Of Self Directed Time Wasting

Visual Diary

10.49 pm – Wed 16 January 2008

Summer holiday observations:

  • despite my valiant resolutions I still continue to stay up too late at night
  • I receive a bunch of books for Christmas and figure I’ll read them throughout the year. Instead, I read all 20 books in about 2 weeks.
  • I promise I’ll finish that manuscript… then waste time watching tv show repeats
  • I intend to play with the kids more… but spend too much time on housework
