Please co-operate!

We went to the Nursery this morning where Isabelle will go 5 mornings a week in September. She seemed to really enjoy it. I think we timed it just right. We went about 10.30 and I think everyone else had gone earlier, so it was quite quiet when we got there. At one point she had two nursery staff sat with her talking and playing.

They seemed very impressed with her knowledge and communication skills especially as she's not 3 till next week. I was pleased to find out that they assess all the new starters to find out what level they are at, what they know, how far they can count, what colours they know, what letters etc. and then they are enouraged according to their level.

We drove to Flint Castle after that. I really wanted to get a few decent photographs or her as she's coming up to her birthday. She was in a non co-operative mood for photographs! Grrrrr. So I didn't get many and what I did get weren't really in focus. oh well. Here's a couple of shots anyway.

She gets her exhibitionism from her father!!

Picture of the Day

I'm so pleased. My bald eagle shot got Picture of the Day on The Photographer's Corner

I'm wondering if Isabelle isn't coming down with something. She's had me up and down all night for the last two nights, and it's not like her. Thinking about it, she's only like this when she's getting a cold or something. I hope she's not!

This morning is the drop in session for Nursery that she starts in September. It gives her chance to meet her teachers and generally see what goes on in Nursery. We can pop in at any time, so I think we'll head down there about 10.30.

My shoulders/neck/upper back are particularly sore this morning. No idea why. Pain killers here I come.

It might be something to do with the fact that I spent quite a bit of time at the computer last night. I've completely re-done my web page. The way it was before meant that it was such a pain to update, and I'd stopped updating it. It needed a lot of hand coding and I just got sick of doing it. I've downloaded some software (cheat that I am!) and have revamped it completely. I'm more or less happy with it, although I think I'd like a simple site entry page at the front rather than go straight into the gallery, but I can alter that at a later date. It's so easy to update now, which is great. I might be able to keep on track of it now and stop my mum from nagging to update it all the time!
