Thursday 24 November 2011: Burn baby...

636/365: ... burn...

My name is Sarah. And I totally faked this shot.

I saw the tree. I liked the tree.

I saw the sunset. I liked the sunset.

I saw that the tree was nowhere near the sunset.

I didn't like that.

So, I spoke nicely to Photoshop... and combined the two. I don't even care that it's not that well edited. I wanted them to live together. And now they do. And I am a happy bunny. :o)

Another day working from home and the heating decided to work today. All we had to do was for Nick to leave a message on the plumber's answerphone and miraculously the boiler started working. Simple, huh? It did mean that I wasn't freezing my backside off which was nice. And the conference was interesting today... which was also good.

What was kinda confusing was at dinner time when Maddy was trying to explain what she'd been doing with her number stuff at school. 'We were doing a cave', she said. 'I'll show you... you draw a cave... then you put a number here... and another number there. Now, how many threes in 4?'

'One', I say.

'Right', she says. 'And how many threes in 8?'

'Two... remainder two... but... what about the other 1 from when you divided the four by three?', I ask...

'It just disappears'

'Disappears? But... what happens to it?

'It just goes.'

'But... but...'

'It. Just. Goes.', she says in that staccato manner which flags the fact that she's about to have a hissy fit about it all.

This is the point, as a parent, where you flounder around trying to get your head around what your child is going on about... then... give up.

PS I suppose her number work makes as much sense as my photography
PPS ... but both still make my head a little bit spangled.
