      Sure seems like you've settled in well to QLD, like you have lived there forever.
      Enjoyed doing a catch up on your area and your busy life.
      My favourites are your macros and land/beachscape shots. Just lurve the spider.[email protected]/
      Haven't been there, not done that.

          Lots of interesting shots Anna. Love the one of the talking horse in week 43. Hope Kalen enjoyed his formal and the hair will go if he joins the navy lol.

            Another months worth of photos. We have had all three birthdays now .. 16, 8 and 18yo. eeek. The teens both aren't the most social of butterflies so Jess had two friends for a sleepover and one has conveniently moved 2 doors up on the other side of the road. So yes a tame 16th bday with a fancy cake. Kalen he just wanted to meet up with mates at the tavern (a short walk away) so he had a beer with dad plus met his mate there and walked home with some booze and we sat talking at the table. So no rowdy night there either. We are still trying to educate Kalen on the many things he is lazy about but still a hard learner. He likes rum & coke and bourbon & coke. We educated him on how beer is cheaper lol.. In the photos of wk 52 which will be coming up when I do it, he has graduated from year 12 ~ and had the graduation ceremony. Good job on his not being uber social and with money is ,, he's not interested and wouldn't afford to go to schoolies on the gold coast. He does want to see the Foo Fighters in Brisbane in February but he has to save and I can't see him doing that as he didn't realise how expensive airfare, accommodation and a ticket would be and he's only working part time at Hungry Jacks. So that's where we are at the moment in life with the Simpsons .. haha. oh and I stop work on 19Dec to 26 Jan cos of funding. I do have one client I have for 4 hrs a week under a different package so it's not effected. hmm Weather it's been 33c so a bucket load cooler than down south. The pool is like a warm bath and the outside temp is cold in comparison. We have some beautiful trees in blossom around Cairns and I am procrastinating about taking photos.. I need a push bike so I can go do this quick and easy lol. Will have to wait as the money tree hasn't blossomed yet.
            *Jess had her eyes checked and tried on some new glasses.
            *Jason @ The Coffee Club not happy that his mug of coffee looks like a 'cup' lol.
            *me trying on the glasses Jess chose.
            *The dry leaves on the dry ground at the park.
            *Willy Wagtail who follows us dog walking at YAPS. He gets half a metre away from the dogs .. not afraid at all.
            *Woof and Demond reading while bunny teaches.
            *the 'graze' on the Camry I did while forgetting how close to a pole was. doh!

            *Jess had her friends Chloe and Jessie over for her 16th birthday. Just a quiet one.

              52 weeks is nearly up Anna but worth the effort as a history of your family for the year. Isn't is strange how family birthdays often occur around the same time. We have a one in December and another in January - not good planning at all. Kalen looks much better with his hair shorter - what are his plans next year. And, Jason will have to be renamed grumpy judging by his extremely unimpressed look in that selfie.


              • #37
                Beaut record Anna.
                It's the little things!

                Cheers, Greg C.

                    Hope your photobook is awesome. What's the plan for 2015 Anna?


                    • #40
                      Thanks Gabby. The plan for 2015 is to just do the same ... but will be for the whole year from 1 Jan to 31 Dec .. where as the one above I started late in the year and was supposed to finish 52 weeks later but that didn't happen cos it wasn't right to not include the rest of the year lol.

                      Already almost finished a photobook of it. Using the photobookclub that whatsy recommended in another thread. Figured if I do the most current photobook and then work my way backwards and get the previous years completed lol. .. like book 2 of 2012 and then the whole of 2013. A few hundred $$ worth of books to be done, but do them during the specials that come and go.

                        Will be interested to hear how photobookclub turns out. You know you need 3 copies don't you? So there will be no sibling fights in the future about who gets the books lol.
