Frankly there is no hiding from the fact that this week's photos are a weird. An eclectic mix of randomness. But I had fun snapping.
This boy sized mouse loves cheese so much his teeth turned to cheddar. But then he ate his own teeth.
Today's frost captured petals will be bruised tomorrow.
A selfie. Working on a new project only to be surpassed by another newer (better?) project the next day.
The Mr inspired me. He nagged a bit but he is right and so the newer plan was born in the shadow of Burghley House.
This one was not playing ball and refused a cute shot.
What possible reason could I have for shooting a radiator thermostat? Because the warmth that it generated has been elusive and the sickly boiler was finally put out of its misery.
Random is good though. Looking forward to a new random week.

I had some great feedback from my post last week where my writing itch got scratched so thank you to everyone who took the time to comment. It was really encouraging, enough to get me thinking about the 2 or 3 book ideas that have been bumping around in my head.
One idea is a modern day fairy tale with a twist: the heroine has no idea who she is.
Another features a Lord, big in attitude, small in stature, who has his mother at his beck and call. "Mother! More cheese! And make big the vintage cheddar!"
Not for the faint hearted but I have an idea for a children's horror story too. The monster from the deep end of the bath.
And one about a hidden world concealed at the bottom of a box. You just jump right in and limb by limb you disappear into its realm.
I have another tale, but this one may be too soft focus, too sentimental for even my stomach to take.
What about the tale of the dog who takes its owner for walks, each day discovering new scents which in themselves tell a story. The dog retells the stories but they fall on deaf ears until one day a small boy listens...
There is a tale of greed, where Augustus and his younger brother Bob eat until their onesies burst.
All promising germs of a story I'm sure you'll agree but possibly in need of some refinement before I tackle the publishers.
I'll keep working on them.

2013 has been and gone
Out with a sigh, and my pj's on.
2014, with a promise of fun
Only the fourth and three parties done.
Looking good so far but Monday to face
And back to a more steady pace.
A photo a day to keep memories alive
I'm starting my third 365.
Here's the fruit of our days so far.
Expect to see a few cups of char
As the days stretch out and inspiration fails
And my 365project goes off the rails ;-)
Happy New 365 project!
