Snapshot Sunday

After a huge working week I decided that today being Sunday I would simply take it easy and just do some things I enjoy doing. Who doesn’t enjoy a lazy Sunday at home when you don’t have to work. I work every second one so I really enjoy having a whole week end off. I love to sleep in. When I finally decide it’s time to get up I make a lovely hot cup of tea and check out what is happening online. The dogs and cats curl up in their baskets keeping me company while I browse the news or some of my favourite web sites. Later I potter around a bit doing what ever I need to do before starting some hobbies. I recently came across an interesting app where you can turn your photos into drawings and stuff. I had one of these before but haven’t found it so far. I am madly trying to reinstall all my favourite apps on my new computer. This one makes some very good drawings so I mucked about with a few photos this morning to see what I could come up with. I did have some fun with this. So for Snapshot Sunday I am posting one of my original pictures together with the one I turned into a bit of artwork. If you are interested in this app or one like it I got it off the Microsoft Store.

I came to Australia with my mother and sister Vanda in 1966 from the UK aboard the Sitmar liner Castel Felice. We settled in South Australia I lived in the western suburbs of Adelaide for most of my life. I became very interested in retro items in my twenties. It was always a dream of mine to have an old house and fill it with retro items. I have done it twice now. My main interest is collecting old things. They do not have to be valuable, only interesting. There is something reassuring about old retro items. I have all sorts of things including doll related items. My other interests are my beautiful pets, art and going for drives to who knows where. I also enjoy board games or doing a scenic jig saw puzzle on a wintry afternoon by the fire. My goal is to travel a bit more as there are some places I would love to see
