Happy Nude 2015

Another year has started I hope it’s going well for you so far. It seems really odd putting 2015 on letters. I remember back in the days of cheques how many times I crossed the old year out and have to replace it with the new one. Now we are more reliant on bank cards, PayPal and the likes take money without asking for a date it’s not often we get a chance to write the date.

I love the internet it was a fantastic invention you can access so much from your living room. When it first burst into our lives I was rather cynical and doubting about it now it’s like an old friend! My then husband bought a computer in exchange for a real Christmas tree every year as I felt it a waste of money and would not be used…How I eat my words now! And no I never had the real tree!!! In days gone by if you wanted to find out about anything it was through library books or encyclopaedias. A memory of the children’s encyclopaedia dad bought through the Readers Digest, some of the coloured pages in there took my imagination to places I would never see. Yet they stirred a curiosity in me to find out more. Today that curiosity is quenched on the internet; starting on one subject the internet cleverly puts links in; now if you are like me I find these irresistible you never know what you will discover.  You might get a link to paintedladymodelling.co.uk now that would be fantastic!

All my photo albums need to be streamlined as I have far too many photos that really should be relegated to the bin. You know the ones the ones you take a couple of shots of just in case the first photo does not work. In the end both photos are kept just in case! Not anymore time to streamline the albums. I know my photos from Barcelona (I love that city) and Rome (amazing place I loved the history and art here) there are lots of duff ones yet somehow I really feel something deep inside me that won’t let me make the album smaller. Most things I am great at thinning out; if nothing serves a purpose or enhances my surroundings I have no troubles taking the object to the charity shop. Ah it could be the memories tied up in the photos. I am being sentimental that’s really nice.

Here is an example of two pictures same location! One is more zoomed in now do you see my dilemma? I know I would never make a professional photographer as I would want to keep all the photos. Imagine that in the days of reel photos and negatives.

Time to stop my ramblings, enjoy your evening

Be safe

Temperamental phone!

Where did Christmas go? It has been a fun one this year. I had a meal out with friends on Christmas day. It really was lovely being with friends and the big plus not having to wash up or clear up. I think that is something I will be doing next year as it really is so leisurely. On a normal day I cook a normal festive spread  then for me I do something either vegetarian or pescetarian  (I eat a veggi diet or fish I have no idea what fish have done to me to make me eat them!) so eating out makes life so much easier. I stopped eating meat 8 years ago it was just a life style choice one an ethical or health decision.

Oh my phone is messing about I noticed a huge scratch on it and now its sulking. Good ol’ Google has just told me how to get the phone back to factory settings. I was going to put the sim card into my old phone sadly it’s too small for it. Seems the smart phones have dinky sims. How frustrating is this I have better things to do on a Sunday evening than fight with a sulking phone! Sadly the re set never worked I need to go back to Google to see what I can do now.

It certainly has got cooler the last few days. The marshes are all flooded again as not only is it cold but the heavens keep opening. It does look very pretty it’s amazing how quickly the wildlife colonises the new wetlands. Nature and big skies really fascinate me. I now have birds coming back into the garden after it was obliterated when I moved in. I have a couple of bird feeders up and a nursery bed for the plants from the old house this is making great places for birds to hide. It really is lovely hearing birds chirping and flitting over the garden.

I am getting bookings for the new term which is fantastic I love to watch the diary filling up. I have been to new contacts and they are impressed with my life modelling stillness as I pose like a statue. I always get asked after I have posed in a life modelling session how do I keep so still, I always say I meditate or hypnotise myself. There have been times the tutor has spoken to me and I don’t answer as I am dreaming of being at the beach or just in a quiet place. That’s what I love about the job the peace that comes with it.

Time to go back on Google and try to sort this pesky phone out; it really is challenging me today!
