|Sunset the night before my birthday; I need to work on ISO and shutter speed settings I think|
|Saw this impressive duck on my birthday; this is at the Christchurch Botanic Gardens|
|I don't know when they put this up outside the rose garden, but it's magnificent. George is investigating the garden behind it.|
|Little black ducks with ducklings; it's good to see these wee guys even if they are a bit late in the season.|
|Grant Thornton building; Thomas was on the 6th floor of this building in the big quake. It's now on the demolish list from what I heard.|
|The Re-Start shopping mall; used to be Cashel St Mall; most of the buildings were demolished as they were unsafe. Ballantynes survived mostly intact and is now up to the new building standards and open for business.|
|Bridge of Rememberance from the non-mall side, see the big vertical crack? That's why it's fenced off.|
|The Museum where we went to see the World of Wearable Art exhibition. No photo's allowed; though at least one person wasn't aware of that going by the flash.|
|FIL's new dog; lovely young animal. This was at our nephew's birthday party|
|My shiny! This was what Mum and Dad and Thomas got me for my birthday! Yay! Downloaded quite a few classics, and 3 cheap knitting books to get an idea of what I think of it. So far I'm liking it and I'm going to send a few PDF's its way.|
|The other thing I've been doing. Making screens for our windows. This will help to keep nasty cat out and all the flies too! Hard on the thumbs, but very rewarding.|
More knitting done on my CPH too, 6" to the armhole on the back now.
Tomorrow I'll get the shorts finished, might get the remaining 3 screens done and I really want to make a skirt too.
