And... Guess what??? I have done some video! Oh yesh, Grim is rueing the day he said "did you know you can do video on that camera?" Which, no, I didn't know... and erm... I do now... to the point that I actually flattened the battery with all the videoing that I did. I did a little running commentary on them too... well, they are there...preserved for posterity... the only problem is, and you will hear for youselves if you click on them, I do talk a lot of twaddle when left to my own devices. I thought that I was being quite informative and a bit "David Attenborough" about the whole thing but... erm... I wasn't, I didn't and... well, it is a laugh. The first video is actually the second one I did, the first one being a bit of a pigs ear, so the less said about that the better. Now, I have been trying valiantly to upload said video's to this post and Mr Blogger is having none of it... so, I have popped them onto my YouTube channel... CLICK HERE for Video 1 CLICK HERE for Video 2 and CLICK HERE for Video 3 Please do have a click and listen - ooh, and check out the graphics at the start and finish of each one... I did those myself, I know!!! I used a thingywotsit that Grim popped onto my laptop... there's no stopping me now you know lol Oh and don't worry, each one is only a couple of minutes long...
Oh and my YouTube channel is HERE :O))
I promise I won't turn into one of those peeps that as soon as they have an opportunity to show you their holiday pics they jump at it... well, maybe just a smidge today but that is only because I am bursting with excitement because, even if I do say so myself, the photo's are rather good! Instead of adding a load of waffle inbetween each photo, I will just give them a label... and maybe the odd word or two... (ahem) I see lots of photo's on the t'internet that peeps have taken of their shoes... so I took one of my sensible shoes. Wearing sensible shoes is a first for me. I actually bought these about 281 years ago and finally had a use for them. I rather like them... and very comfy!
We went over the Buttertubs Pass - mainly to see the Buttertubs but also to have a drive of the road as it is pretty spectackerler... and, did you know, Jeremy Clarkson reckons it is the best driving road in the UK? Here's a little linky to the clip on YouTube so you can see what it looks like....
AND... thank you all for doing your sun-dances... whilst the sun didn't come out, it did make sure that the clouds stayed high enough up for us to actually see the Ribblehead Viaduct... oohlalalaaa... it is mahooosive! There was a cracking storm thundering away in the valley and the noise of the thunder was reverberating off the mountains behind the viaduct... I did my usual witchy thing and started cackling... something about thunder storms brings out the witch in me (there are so many things I could say about that, but I shalln't lol)
So. We are home. We had an amazing time - the weather was baaaad, but... we were very lucky because we seemed to miss all of the nasty hailstones/storms etc that had been raging around the North and Midlands on Thursday. It was rainy, misty and windy but... so what... you know, sometimes the scenery is so breathtaking that whether it be rain or shine, it doesn't really matter. Actually, the whole misty/cloudy look has made the photo's appear more rugged, well, I think so lol
The journey home was amazing, I have to say. We set off at about 10.30am after a little nip into Art From The Heart (thank you Grim for my pressies!!!) and I fell asleep at about 11am... and, erm... woke up just as we were pulling onto our drive. So, my journey took half an hour... poor old Grim was all on his ownsome for the trip back... mind you, he probably was enjoy a bit of peace and quiet lol. Here he is... I love this photo - taken on Thursday... he looks so handsome :O)
Right, I shall loves ya and leaves ya... I am doing the catch-up with emails and blogs etc rounds, so if you entered the Sunday Stamper, I haven't forgotten you, I will be by later to visit. There's a new Sunday Stamper theme this weekend... I have yet to think of the theme and make something, I am sure I will come up with something though. Thanks for looking... TTFN!
