Because Shula told me to:

A new feed for you to follow: I've started posting my everyday photographs here:


Hyena In Petticoats on Tumblr

Do pop in for a visit - I do wish my photo app would publish direct to blogger, but alas. There you have it.

Nanette: thanks for letting me steal your idea - it's lovely to see you too. The garden is looking a treat, by the way.

Shula: I'm still tracking down your Christmas present - it seems the people at the shop don't know what happened. Sheesh. So much for spontaneous

Easing back in...

Something funny happens when you start a blog. After a little while, you start an internal dialogue to your blog. You start to think about things in terms of how they would look in a photo or essay, and you get a wee bit manic about photographing everything.

Impressive morning hair

Something funny also happens when you stop blogging so much. The internal dialogue stills, the photos become less and less, you start to realise that you are actually living moments, rather than documenting them....

99 bottles of wine on the wall....

What I want is some kind of middle ground - I began this blog as a way to document the process of making things, and now it has become something else......

Upstairs ceiling

So I'm easing myself in with some photographs. Because in this long, long hiatus of mine, the only thing that has been constant is the pictures.

The bum of Chavez

These photographs are from my latest, and most satisfying iPhone app - Instagram - it's a phone and a feed all in one, so if you're a sucker for an app, you can follow me - I'm hyenainpetticoats on there as well.....


I figure if the pictures come first, the words will follow.



ps: I'm stealing an idea from Nan at Rummage, and I'll start responding to comments down here - so keep an eye out....

Renee: I'm gad I'm not the only one sneaking in a ciggie or two - American Spirit! I haven't seen those in years!

Leslie: I'm glad you liked Heath Cullen - I should try and get more music into my posts..... there's an idea! xx

Boy, was that a long year. Frankly, I'm glad to see the back of it. Here's to a better one to come, eh?


Right now, I'm welcoming in the New Year with a cup of tea, an illicit cigarette (I gave up a few months ago), and a bit of Heath Cullen & The 45. I have plans, my friends, big plans. Most of them are still inside my head, but there'll be action in the next day or two.....

No resolutions as such, I'm not that kind of person, but I hope to live a more considered, engaged, and interactive life this year. I've seen a little too much of the inside of my house, if you know what I mean. I'm not sure where this poor old neglected blog fits in, but I'll come up with something. You'll see.

Happy New Years, dears. Love to all.
