Too much time on the computer, not enough time to play
34/52

The title says it all really. I left Worldcon in London last Monday, travelled to Leamington Spa to visit my elderly dad who had been ill and taken to hospital. (Don't worry, he's fine now and back in the delightful care home where he's lived for the past 12 months!) Then I travelled home to be faced with laundry from the trip, catching up with food shopping, taking the car into the garage to get the slow puncture repaired (it had picked up a nail somewhere), trying to drum up students for the computing degree, receiving the bad news of my students' GCSE English re-sit results (awful!) and finally helping my husband put his programming book together ready for self-publishing.

So there's been no time for fun or taking decent photos this week, sadly. All you get is this crappy selfie taken with my phone.

Dang, you've been a very busy lady! Hope things slow down some for you soon.

(Nice selfie!)

I'm trying to have a more restful day today. We uploaded the completed book to Lulu yesterday, so I have just a couple of small urgent tasks to do today then I can relax for a bit.

That is a pretty good selfie!
I don't understand where the camera was?

Thanks. The camera was in my left hand, held out to the side and behind. Then, after composing the shot on the screen, I turned my head to face the computer and hoped that I didn't move the phone too much as I pressed the button to take the picture. It took four attempts to get more or less what I wanted.

That is amazing! Yes it looks like a casual photo yet I thought there may be quite of bit of work to it. I really really like it!
