It was such a lovely weekend 'weatherwise'

There wasn't a cloud in the sky over Cardigan yesterday, and although it was still pretty cold it finally feels as if we're starting to shake off the last bits of winter and can look forward to Spring.

What better way to sum up springtime than snowdrops - I took this yesterday afternoon while on a walk through Cwm Degwel. lovely stuff! Viva la primavera!

On Friday night myself, Emma and Lydia went to the Queen's hall in Narberth to watch The Gentlemans Dub Club; it was such a great night - lots of good music, laughs, (and maybe some dodgy dancing on my behalf...)

Have a listen , although i will warn you, it'll make you crave some Summer sunshine...!

To cap off the weekend i went and took some photos down a deserted Mwnt beach, the beautiful sunset made the cold fingers and toes worth it!

It's sunny!

..or rather...."it's not raining!" ('sunny' might be pushing it a bit)

To celebrate the first slight glimpse of the sun in months, we've been playing some Summary beats in HQ.

party time.

"I cannot endure to waste anything as precious as autumn sunshine by staying in the house. So I spend almost all the daylight hours in the open air" -- Nathaniel Hawthorn

Autumn is a funny one.

One one hand you've got the autumn leaves, the cold crisp mornings, wrapping up warm and log fires. All very lovely and picturesque indeed.

...then you've got the rain.

the rain.

the rain.

So i'm calling on you to send in your favourite autumn snapshots to me here - hollie(at)howies(dot)co(dot)uk, to remind us why autumn (or Fall if you're Kim) is actually quite a nice month afterall. I'll make a slideshow of the nicest ones at the end of next week. Remember to include your name and where the photo was taken so i can credit you accordingly.

So then this time next week we'll all be able to sit back in front of a log fire, crack open a beer (hey it'll be friday afterall) and enjoy...And then hopfully have an urge to get out there and enjoy it properly.

Here's one to get you started. It was taken last weekend in Cwmcou, just outside Cardigan. Nothing spectacular i know...i just like trees.

Rubik cube-ism

Over the weekend i stumbled across this site for The cube works company in Toronto, Canada.

The artists design the pieces in the same way that pixels on a computer screen are coloured and organised to form images. As if that's not complicated enough, they then have to actually work out each cube puzzle to get the colours they need. phew, seems like too much hard work.

When me and my sister we little we used to just peel off the coloured stickers and then stick them where we needed them to go on the cube. Cheating? perhaps...

I've just been checking out this years winning entires in the Veolia environment's wildlife photography competion, they recieved over 43,000 entries from 94 countries, and the overall winner was José Luis Rodríguez's stunning shot of an Iberian wolf - "The story book wolf"

If like me you can't get to have a look at the exhibiton yourself, then just go to the Natural history museum's website to have a look at the winning and commended entries from this year, as well as the past few years.

The exhibition is on until April, so hopefully i'll get to check it out in person soon.

right, where's my camera?

DAY 2:

This afternoon Ben thought it'd be a nice idea for me to go out and experience a bit of the sights and sounds of London. So i set off, armed with a list of places i should go (which the guys had also marked out in the A-Z book for me) and my camera; What could possibly go wrong? i mean, even a chimp could manage it.

...so ye, London is pretty scary when you're hideously lost.

time flies!

I must have been working too hard, it seems as if only yesterday we were in July!

.....oh well, merry christmas everyone!
