Let there be light!

Here is my latest lantern. This one took a little working out, especial for how to get the light inside, but has come out well.

Again, both photos are quite bad as the wiere taken with the Ixus under the stairs. Some stuff it does really well and I love the ISO 3200 setting but it is so noisy.

When I take them for the pattern I will be using the DSLR and timed exposure. They should should come out much better.

The third photo is to show you the difference in size. I am planning a few more the smaller size and one more the larger size.

We spent Saturday in Ely. It was a bit stressful because I discovered that I only had one earring in part way through the morning. If it had been any but the pair I was wearing (Marks lovely anniversary pressie to me) I wouldn't have cared. We spent the rest of the morning retracing our steps but didn't find it. However, when I got home, there is was safe and sound on the sofa. My dear son had interrupted me in the middle of putting them on!!!!!

I was actually looking for phone. I want to get Benjamin one now that he has started at Cromwell. Originally I was going to get him the cheapest one on Tesco tarriff that I could find but saw this one while looking online and decided to treat myself using the clubcard vouchers instead.

The trouble is that they are £10 more in store than online unless you spend £30 on other stuff then you get £20 off which makes them £10 cheaper than online. And then I saw this one! I will only have to add £7.50 to the vouchers if I spend the other£30. And lets face it, topping up on veg, bread and milk for the week comes to almost that. So, I came home without one because I didn't want to lug £30 worth of shopping around with me all day and talked nice to Mark who will take me to Huntingdon one day next week.

Of course, in the meantime I have a very impatient Benjamin because I made the mistake of telling him what I was going to do with the old one.

I will let you know when I have it!
