An Evening with Dracula

Some friends and I were invited to Castle Doom on Saturday, for another scary evening of games ..... and trying to hide from Count Dracula!

We were asked to come dressed as comic book characters, so here am I as Beryl the Peril from the Scottish comic 'The Topper'.

My sister came as Dennis the Menace from 'The Beano'!

Ming the Merciless and Clark Kent had an altercation during a board game!

Our host, Count Doom, made sure dead friends were with us too! :-)

Clark Kent, Batman, Harely Quinn, Count Doom, Beryl the Peril .... and in front, Ash and Dennis the Menace!

Great fun was had by all - and we all survived to play again another day! :-)

Today was typical November weather.

Dark and wet.

Hope tomorrow's brighter.

Every year, we hold a bonfire party at my house. The bonfire is built in the paddock and there is much food and drinkies set out in the barn, with fireworks set off too. Last night was our chosen date this year and once again, we were very lucky with the weather.

Watching some of the fireworks ....

After most of the fire burnt down, we all sat around it, chatting and toasting marshmallows, until well after 11.00pm.

We finished up just in time, because just as everyone was leaving, it started to drizzle.

Good timing!

After many years of good service, my old laptop was definitely past it's best for my needs. There was no way I could ever afford a new one, but luckily for me, Tim came to my rescue and bought me this little beauty ......

She is absolutely fabulous and I love her to bits!

Thank you so much, Tim!



Jodie hosted her annual Hallowe'en party again this year, but unfortiunately, she has injured her back quite severely and is not allowed to move about too much. SO, she was stuck on the couch all evening, dressed as a dead bride!

Here is a selection of pics from the evening!

Of course, we ended up in the pub, as normal!

Hopefully next year, Jodie will be back to fighting fitness!! :-)


More Aurorae

The 1st October saw a lovely clear night and luckily, the northern lights decided to pay a call!

I am so lucky that I can see this amazing sight from just outside my house!


Hair and Latex

On 23rd September, Jodie had a shoot in Toni&Guy hair salon in Aberdeen, modelling hair for Peter Mellon (head stylist at Toni&Guy) and also modelling latex clothing for Little Rubber Cherry. I was shooting BTS again, which I love doing!

Here is all the team, at the end of the long, but satisfying, day - me, Jodie, Grahame (photographer), Peter (hair sytlist) and Andrew (Peter's assistant).
