    I’ve been enjoying all of your pictures. You do a nice job with this camera. Are these wild parrots? Also love the Wilson pictures. What breed is he?

    You mentioned suffering with ME. There is a blogger whom I follow occasionally (her blogs tend to be too long) with ME. You probably hear all you want about it, but you may want to read her post today. It’s quite revealing description of what she’s dealing with. Anyway, thought you might want to know about it. http://idiosyncraticeye.wordpress.com/2013/03/01/loss-of-self/#comment-4817. There’s another ME blogger I follow who tends to make light of it and find the humor in it. I’m sure there are many different levels of it and of course, like all things in life, a lot depends on how one accepts things.

    Have a great evening!

    Thank you 🙂

    I get very sick & tired of talking about it (ME with capital letters is how if feels sometimes!) but long descriptions are useful to me when trying to explain how awful I feel to my mum, husband and children, to whom I am just a person who complains a lot & looks fine 🙂 Will definitely go have a look at your friends blog.

    Thanks re my photos 🙂 I love taking them & I love sharing my photos, but my children can only take so much of my ‘Look at my fab photo girls’ before killing me, so the blogosphere is where I get to show them off :-). I wasn’t intending to start a blog about photography, I’m not sure where I was going really with it, but I love participating in the weekly photo challenges so when i’m feeling really sorry for myself they inspire me to blog positively & cheer myself up 🙂

    The Parakeets are wild, native to this part of Surrey only! They are thought to have escaped from a collection, or more exotically from Shepperton Film Studios, but they have settled around here and there are about 30,000 of them now! People always ask about them when I post photos of them!

    Its funny to see parrots in the snow, and the face of visitors looking out into our garden seeing a flock of green parrots descend on our garden!
