  1. Thanks will! I'm sad you've moved. I no longer have my snow lookout, which means I'm going to have to lamp post watch 24/7. I used to be able to log on here and you'd have given the latest Fav snow updates and I didn't even have to look out the window! I hope you get loads of snow in Glossop this winter On topic - bloomin freezing tonight! I totally underestimated how cold it was earlier too and my fingers nearly fell off. It's definitely gloves and scarf time!
  2. Morning everyone Bit chilly out there today although not as chilly as I thought it would be. The moon was huge this morning so I grabbed a couple of pics. I'm looking forward to the Snow Cup. Hopefully we'll have something to stick our rulers in very soon I've banned myself from the mod thread this year. The last 2 years have been so emotionally stressful just reading it so I've not ventured in this time. This thread is full of excellent posters with all the info you'd ever need anyway. Happy, non argumentative, sane(ish) people with straight up weather info in here and not a pram or strewn toy in sight. Just the way I like it Have a great day all
  3. One of my friends did this about 10 years ago. He burnt his whole face he looks pretty normal now but it was AWFUL. He has the pic of his burnt face as his FB profile pic and I hate seeing it...melted *shudder*
  4. Happy Soggy Halloween! I look like a drowned rat after sweeping the leaves from the front door. It was probably a total waste of time seeing as the weekend will probably bring a ton more to the doorstep haha. Hope everyone has a great day

    The Curry Thread

    Just remembered they do cookery courses at our favourites' resturant. £200 for a 6 week course though... Ouch. I'd love to know some of their secrets though!

    The Curry Thread

    Oooh that looks good, love the comments on it lol, id definately try that. Bombay Flame is gorgeous, it has potatoes in too which are Devine. It's hot...lip numbing hot. The prices are the same from our favorite. It works out about £35 a time for 2 but it's good food and worth every penny.

    The Curry Thread

    My fave from the takeaway is Chicken Bombay Flame made with naga chilli and I make a mean Vindaloo in the slow cooker. I'd eat curry everyday if my body allowed me to, sadly it doesn't!
  8. Evening all I'm So hungry after reading the last couple of pages!! Tonight's menu sounds delish. We had good ol shepherds pie and veg, perfect food for a chilly evening We had a great day enjoying the autumn sunshine. we went out to collect a ton of twigs and leaves to make new trees as lots were broken in the storm. It was my sons idea (he is only 5) so with a little help from some Sellotape we now have a house full of 'trees' it's like the great outdoors in here. It was a beautiful day, some gorgeous clouds in the sky which we layed and watched for a while
  9. It's still rather blustery out there! We've been out twice, once to look at the poor trees and second time to collect my bank card which I apparently dropped whilst looking at the trees! Took a few pics. These were in the park which is outside my house. We were lucky that the big tall trees on the doorstep held their ground well otherwise we might have acquired a new house plant. There are trees down all over town and someone's car was squashed by a falling tree in my Dads Road No idea why they are sideways, this always seems to happen with iphone pics?! I feel shattered after all that excitement and staying up most of the night. Might as well get used to it though, it will soon be Snow watch
  10. Page 1 of dedicated thread Jo Farrow said Kent isn't out of the woods yet and there was more to come. It does seem alot calmer here at the moment though
  11. The strongest winds are yet to come hun so I would delay or leave it for now x
  12. That roar!! Are we in the worst now?? We have lost power at some point as all the clocks are flashing. Just watching all the leaves flying around out the back door. my heart is racing lol
  13. afternoon all is everyone ready for later? I've had a little sleep in prep for staying up tonight. Camera batts charged, DS for the kids charged, phones poised to charge later, flask out and it looks like a Yankee Candle retailers in here. I.AM.READY! Really excited but have a little niggling feeling of worry too. Is it safe to venture in the dedicated thread yet? i felt like I needed anger management after going in there a few hours ago.
  14. That isn't ordinary lol! I wouldn't fancy walking along with 80mph gusts, I doubt I could even if I tried
  15. Afternoon all I hope everyone is good, I haven't posted for ages! All eyes to Monday. I have to say it's looking rather concerning. Obviously I'm really excited about it but also worried. Back in 87' (sorry ha) it was all about the excitement and as I was only a wee one I didn't have the worry and trouble of cleaning up the devestation it caused. Now I'm a big girl I'm actually worrying about the house etc. I live on te edge of a park and there are lots of trees on my doorstep. They're in full leaf and already swaying with the light winds today. God only knows what they'd be like in an 80mph gust?! I've been following everything here closely and giving friends and family the heads up. Some people are so blasé about it though and scoff at the idea of it being anything more than a storm in a teacup. One can only hope that if come Monday things are flying past their windows they actually take heed and stay in until it's blown over. I've got my candles ready, books, sweets and blankets so we should be alright
  16. thank you. I dont think I'm near to putting anyone to shame though haha. I'm doing ok so far with birds, wildlife and people but suck at landscapes at the moment. One step at a time I guess
  17. A pic I took today. I think its a Harris Hawk
  18. It is! I went to a Nature Reserve yesterday evening. I saw so many birds and guess what... not enough zoom! I'm off to get another lens in a bit. Still not decided which so I'll try them out in the shop.
  19. Thanks guys. I'm going to do lots of free photography workshops that thy run around kent and I'm also going to Camera club when it starts up again in a couple of weeks so that should help ALOT lol
  20. woohoo the camera is AMAZING. Its going to take me a heck of a time to work out what Im doing but I love it. I've only been in the garden with it so far and indoors taking random pics of household objects..Im still in my jamas lol. Unbeknown to me I had a camera bag as a suprise and its FAB! I also got a tripod so for now I think I'm ready to go. Here is a little shot I took of a Bee collecting pollen. It was one of the first I took and I have no idea what I'm doing really but I thought it was quite cool.
  21. Thank you BB - I got myself some bits yesterday from Ebay. I got filters, wireless trigger remote, cleaning kit, screen protectors and something else but cant think what. I'm looking at a tripod for cheap on there too. I've been looking at second hand lenses but they still sell for quite a hefty price and you just never know if they've been dropped or are all working ok. I'd like to think I'm quite good at shopping around and hunting for a good bargain. Im such a magpie though so get distracted easily with things like bags lol. Thanks Triple I've ordered a book with tips and tricks for the 600D which will come in handy. I've been watching tons of tutorials and taking notes aswell to help me out. 1 day to go and I can start practising hooray!! 4wd - Wow they are BEAUTIFUL shots. I'd be incredibly happy if I took pics like that
