Pictures of my every day life

About Lynne


My son in-law Don set this blog up for me and it’s been a real pleasure posting my pictures and experiences. I enjoy photography and am making efforts to improve my skills and understanding of my Nikon D3000.

I retired from nursing in July 2011, and have relished the freedom it has given me.  In August 2012 I moved back to Nova Scotia, Canada where I was born.

My granddaughter Poppy was born on April 5th 2011, and is the best thing that ever happened to me (apart from her mother of course)  she is an absolute angel!  The plan is for my daughter and family to join us here in Canada next Spring.

I love to walk long distances, and now that I have stopped working, am getting out every day.  There are still many, many unwalked trails to explore.  I’m slowly working my way round the South West Coastal path with a walking friend. We might have to use zimmer frames for the last lap, but hey! I now have Nova Scotia to explore.

    Your husband is “old and wise”? Old = OK, Wise = You’ve GOT to be kidding! Thanks for the laugh.

    • Hi Linda,
      Thanks for dropping by my blog. In fact I actually do think my old husband is wise, but then I am biased!

      • Personally, I think you’re both extremely wise individuals – unquestionably – but maybe not as “clever” as Tommy and Jimmy, at least when it comes to catching mice and small birds. I know Daisy thinks we’re just complete buffoons when it comes to hunting from the look on her face when we disturb her at work down the allotments.

  3. hi there – thanks for your comment on my blog – it’s so nice when people drop by isn’t it? I’ve just been nosing around your blog too – Beautiful photographs of all the glorious autumn colour, and I loved the cat-blocked basin, made me laugh out loud.

  4. Hi Lynne
    Good to hear from you and lovely website. Good to see you’re doing such beautiful photography. If you get the chance please try and drop in at the new studio, I think you’d like it. The cats are here! Love Nicki xx

    Hi Lynne, thanks for your comment on my blog (Purls in The Pool). I’m glad you liked my photos – I’m a bit of a rank amateur compared to you though, yours are stunning! Maybe I should go on a course.
    My trip to the Philippines seems a long time ago now, a distant dream of heat and colour, but not easily forgotten

    Hi Lynne, Thanks for popping by my blog. I can see we’re going to get on fine, what with the walking, cats, and taking photographs thingy. I must get back to the Lake District sometime this year.

    Hi Lyndie,
    I have just so enjoyed perusing your blog. The photos are amazing – I wish I had just a fraction of your eye for a good picture. Or maybe I just need your camera!
    Your future plans sound vey exciting. Please let’s have a catch up soon.

    • Yes lets catch up very soon. Thanks for your comment. I think half the trick is in the camera. More than half I suspect!!

  12. Hi Lynne,
    I use a D3000 too…. :)
    Just wondering why is your blog named ‘five good things’


    November 16, 2011 at 2:09 pm

    • Hi Georgie,
      It came from an idea that there are least five good things that happen each day. I like to try to record these, and sometimes I do on my blog!
