A brief update. I got my camera at last, it is just a little Canon Power Shot 510. I have had it just over a year and love it, I take it everywhere, in fact if I lift it all the dogs run to the dog and get very excited as they think we are off looking for a photo. I don't have a lot of time as between visiting my husband in the care home, I have a big garden to take care of, and I do a little dog grooming. Since my husband went into care a year and a half ago I can now get up early (which I love) and head out with the dogs to see
what we can see. Living on my own is fine but it is a worry also as lots of things need to be done, that my husband would have done, also I have to worry about anything going wrong with my health as I have four dogs, but so far I am more than healthy. Well that is about it, except to say how lovely everyone is on blip and I never feel alone, in fact I feel you are all my friends that I hear from every day.
I have three sons, one in the Police, one a photographer and one who works in a big furniture store.
Thank you for your lovely friendship.x

Well I think it is time for a little update. Things have now changed as my dear husband of 54years died in September. He had Alzheimers, which I must say is (I think), the most terrible illness you could have. This will be my first Christmas without him, although he was in a care home for four years. For about the last three years he knew nobody only me, but it was a comfort that he did know me.
I recently treated myself to a new camera, it is still a ridge camera, as I have to have something small as wherever I go looking for a blip I have my two little dogs with me. As you all know by now I love sunrises, sunsets and of course wildlife. Sometimes it is hard getting a blip as I only take photos around my home.
I would love to thank all my wonderful blip friends for being there for me when I needed them over the last four years, I don't know what I would have done without you. You are such a fantastic group  and I love you all.
I also have my two great little companions, who are always there for me.
Looking forward to new year and seeing all your super blips.
