What Jesus Did
Peter Andrew Bull – RIP
I really have broken the back of wordpress. I’ve been so busy developing other websites that i’ve completely neglected this one. Our work website is now back up online using wordpress check it out. I am also developing taylors.tv and ajguitars.co.uk.
Neither have anything online yet (except taylors original site) but its exciting times knowing that i’ve got this stuff nailed.
So – am getting married to the boy of this site…and being a wife-in-training is kinda wierd. How to juggle the new dynamic of relationships with your parents, with his parents, with your girlfriends…with him – kind of gets my brain going all squishy sometimes.
Engagement is mental – one of the biggest life changes you are ever going to experience topped only by perhaps the prospect of being a parent…and I’m worried of being a wedding bore, I’m worried about the budget for the biggest party I’ll ever throw, I’m worried everyone is judging me for what I say or don’t say, do or think…. Plus I have this awesome fiance who has an opinion on every little detail of the wedding – which makes for daily compromises and thrashing out of stuff.
This all makes it sound like a nightmare – honestly it isn’t – there are so many brilliant things about it. I am so ridiculously excited and happy sometimes I think I might just explode as I can’t contain it – but it is an emotional rollercoaster ride!
We are a third of the way through now – March 8th starting to loom bigger and bigger on the horizon. So close and yet somehow still so far!
This journey towards one-ness is crazy – but I believe the Big Man is preparing us pretty well and holding us together when things get mad.
I’m grateful to Him…and to the boy who puts up with me when I am hormonal, grumpy, petulant and selfish – no actually he more than puts up with me – he encourages and loves me like no one else ever has. Irishmark – you rock dewd!!
I gots my Ruru back this afternoon! After having to cancel our weekend of parents meeting parents due to my crappie cold Ruth came back this afternoon. I missed her lots. She is great and no other woman comes close to her……ever!
I’ve also been playing with my camera. Was platnig with auto bracketnig and produced the following HDR image! Its based loosy on the principal of mixing 3 shots. An over exposed, under exposed and regular shot to get the best tonal range to the photo! Me likes! I did it after another Mark tipped me off for a photoshop plugin to try.
clicky for biggy
So as an engagment prezzie Ruth bought me a new Digital SLR Camera. I chose the Pentax K100d Super. I have always been a pentax boy and so i wanred to stick with them plus i wanted to be able to use the lens off my old 35mm SF7.
Its cool having a camera again and even more so it being an SLR. So its not a compact camera but Ruth has a decent compact anyway so this is gonna be used for some good stuff. – For the first few months i’ll probably bring it everywhere anyway.
Over day one i have been playing with it lots and figuring it all out. I think i hvae most of it cracked. The only thing i was never too hot on was metering correctly but its something to learn and enjot. I did that typical thing of going out to the garden and taking photos of plants to test it. I guess its the colour range that most people find in their gardens which is why people do this alot.
Saying that the oist couple of pics taken were of Ruth. Even with flash this is such a huge step above compact. The tonal range that an slr gets is far superior. Playing with aperature and depth of feild is also ace. I am a happy boy.
My sister rang me and asked me to be her new daughter Lucy’s Godfather!! – Me a godfather – It’s true – Proof is below!!
Met Bob and Alison for a drink after work. – Bob did the great thing and booked a night bus back to Edinburger so he shall be debating the finer topics of Burberry patterns with the chav massive who have taken over the National Express Bus route. Anyway Me and Ali & met him for a send off Pint – or 3.
Right so a couple of weeks ago I had been racking my brains about what to get Bob for his birthday. I couldn’t get him a DVD, or a book or porn as he has pretty much every title of each so I decided why not sort him with a website – He has just started his blog so lets hit him with it!
I still have to set up the back end of it but its a start and he likes it!!
