The Weekend


I really want to dig out my Diana camera this weekend...


And take pictures of things simple and lovely


Like a table set for Saturday lunch.


Thank you again for all your kind comments about my dad. He's home and doing ok at the moment. (Deep sigh of relief!)

What are you doing this weekend?

PS: These wonderful photos, above, are by Stephen Norman.

I'd love to see your Diana pics! My fiance and I added an Holga to our registry, and we are considering adding a Diana as well.

I'm so sad to hear how sick your Dad is. I feel for you, so much. I'm having trouble dealing with my own father's illness and mortality. I just want him to be here forever, and I know you feel the same way about your Dad (who sounds like such a special guy). I hope you have lots more time with him: time for laughs, time to cry together, time to remember what life was life when you were a kid and your Dad was your hero.

Good to hear your Dad's okay. Today we're heading to the shops, maybe to get a new computer...and then to my younger sister's new house. Can't wait to see her baby bump! Wendy xx
