iPhriday – school’s out

It's iPhriday - school's out School's out, with holidays for some. Perhaps a longer break for this teacher bringing an amazing career to an end. Over 39 years of caring and hard work Who knows what lies ahead? It's always good to see the photos of the first day of school, so I thought I'd document the …

iPhriday – fun on the tractor

It's Phriday - tractor fun After a busy week at work and weeks of wet, cold days complete with snow (see my Wordless Wednesday post if you don't believe me) it was nice to come home today to a sunny, but still chilly, afternoon. My husband has been on school holidays, working on jobs around the …

iPhriday – A capital idea

Canberra

It's Phriday - in the capital We were in Canberra earlier in the week, with my daughter, son in law and some friends from the UK, and we went for a walk up Mt Ainslie.  It was the first time we've walked up Mt Ainslie and considering we've visited Canberra many times, and like walking, I …

iPhriday – Winter has arrived

Winter tree

It's Phriday - winter is here! Last week I enjoyed a few quiet days at home and the weather was just perfect for it. It was foggy, wet, cold, miserable and grey and I loved it! I lay in front of the fire, I read a book, I went sploshing in the rain, I watched …

iPhriday – Trashing a room

room trashed

It's Phriday - time for a laugh While in Sydney for meetings, my work colleague (and friend) decided to play a practical joke on me. This involved her 'trashing' my hotel room. As her room wasn't ready I generously let her use mine until she could get into her room. She thanked me for my …

iPhriday – Awesomeness

Mug

It's Phriday - that's awesome! I love Fridays and having an afternoon cup of tea in my favourite mug is an awesome way to start the weekend.  Relax, unwind, breathe...... It doesn't hurt to remind ourselves just how awesome we are either! iPhriday is where we get to share a photo taken with a mobile phone. Thanks to Lisa …

iPhriday – city lights

city lights

It's Phriday! It's not been the best week but this view from my hotel room in the centre of Sydney was one of the good things to happen! The night view was beautiful and the sunrise was pretty good too. iPhriday is where we get to share photos taken with a mobile phone. You can see my previous iPhriday posts …

iPhriday – coffee art

It's Phriday again - here's some coffee art I took this photo on my phone while we were out for breakfast in the city recently. I don't take too many foody type photos but I've been very surprised about how well my post for the Weekly Photo Challenge Dinnertime has been received.  Although it's about food, it doesn't …

Through the trees

Looking through the trees - Day 3 of Seven Day Nature Challenge This is my third entry in the Seven Days of Nature challenge - my first entry is also a solitary image but completely different to this photo, whereas my second day photo is a bit similar.  What can I say, I like mornings! Do …

iPhriday – phalaris

It's Phriday today so here's some Phalaris! I took this photo on my phone recently and realised that apart from sharing it on Instagram, I haven't used it here. So iPhriday seems like the perfect day to post a photo of Phalaris doesn't it?. I like that it's really just a type of grass commonly found …

It’s Good iPhriday

It's Good Phriday today! I took these photos while wandering around the local showground, the day after the town's annual agricultural Show.  It was a lovely sight - all crisp, clear, clean and reflective. In reality it's just a little bridge over the creek and an empty grandstand but I like their quietness and stillness after the big, …

iPhriday – Softer focus

It's Phriday again! Where do the weeks go? I took this photo while wandering around the garden during the week. I've been experimenting with the phone camera and editing features of some of my apps. I like the soft focus and the hint of purple in amongst the grey green colour of the gum leaves. I …

iPhriday – away from home

It's Phriday and time for a photo or two from my phone. I have been away from home for the past week, looking after our youngest daughter. It's been a delightful break from the real world. I don't know about you, but for me February has been quite frantic and fraught. We went to a nearby …

iPhriday – phoam roller phun

It's Phriday and time for a photo from my phone. This morning started early - very early!  My gym class starts at 6am on Fridays, so I had to be up (and awake) early. This morning was Metafit - a 30 minute high intensity workout followed by 30 minutes of foam roller fun. Whoever named it 'fun' needs …

iPhriday – remind me again how old I am

  I am a grownup but sometimes it's good to be a child again. It's Phriday and time for a photo from my phone.  This photo shows me in a children's playground looking very smug because I managed to climb up so high! I don't like heights much and I get scared on swinging bridges so …

iPhriday – Clouds in my phone

Clouds in my phone (not my coffee) It's Phriday again and time for a photo from my phone.  Here's a lovely shot of the clouds taken early one morning just for you! Lisa from GrayDaysandCoffee started iPhriday where she shares photos taken with her mobile phone, on a Friday and asks us to join in. You can …
