Me bad

Me bad. I have been out all day and haven’t been able to take a photo.

That’s not quite correct. I did take a photo. As a matter of fact, I took LOTS of photos, but they were not with my camera, nor were they with my phone. I took photos using the camera of a friend, at her 40th birthday lunch. (I sort of became the official photographer)

I also left the house today WITHOUT my own camera.

*Audible intake of breath* I know!!! I can hear the gasps from here.

I left home without my camera!! I felt like I had left home without my child. I really truly thought that I would not need it. I was going to be inside at a restaurant. Why on earth would I need my camera?

Well………… I would have needed my own camera…………

Because the cloud formations I saw on the drive up the Calder Freeway towards Sunbury were so amazing. Cumulus clouds scattered in front of horizontal lines of clouds that got incrementally thicker the closer to the horizon they were. So hard to describe in words. A picture would have been easier. *sigh*

Because Leah’s 40th birthday cake was a minor work of art. Leah is a cake decorator of immense skill and her good friend and fellow cake decorator made and decorated the birthday cake for her. (Though she did use Leah’s cake recipe, Leah’s cake tins, Leah’s’ butter-cream recipe and the topper that Leah had ordered)  *another sigh*

Because it was a magnificent spring day and I should have taken myself for a drive to find a canola field or something anything , but I was too tired and I knew I had a heap of stuff to do at home. (Photo stuff!! Housework and washing is not for a day like today)

Me bad. Me regretful. Me not going to leave home without my camera ever again. So I’m going to share a photo I took the other day.

On the up side, lunch was delectable, the cake was gorgeous and delicious and Leah had a wonderful time celebrating her birthday.

Now I’m going to bed.
