Stargazing

So, how was your lunar eclipse? I have to admit to having no idea that there was going to be one until I read it on the Busywork blog. But I am always up for a celestial happening and last night was beautifully clear - just right for a spot of moonwatching.

Unfortunately, hubby decided that he might do a bit of lunar photography and was then very sad that this was the best he could do. Especially when I showed him some of the amazing photos on Flickr. Don't you just hate it when your skills don't match your aspirations?

Happens to me all too often, and I think I might be setting myself up for a fall with my new purchase.

Can't *really* embroider at all. Bugger. I get so frustrated with the practice-to-improve-your-skills bit. I just want to churn out the amazing ideas in my head. If only life worked that way.

And thank you so much for your great 6-year-old reading suggestions. There were some old favourites of mine in there that I had forgotten and some new to me titles that I must check out.

If it's any consolation to him, my photos look just like that, only they were taken without anything to rest the camera on so they're more like sky squiggles...

that book looks fab.

And yes I totally relate to your 'expectations vs reality' problem.

Oh well, perfections is boring.

In lust with that book.

I completely forgot the eclipse, even though I was up watching a silly movie until 1.20 am and could have gone out to see it half a dozen times...
