There’s nothing like seeing stuff in a new light, for a bit of extra spark in your day. For some time now, the Myrtleandeunices have been on the lookout for sneaky critters appearing out of the woodwork (quite literally). Be warned, it can get a little obsessive if “Hey Mum, there’s twenty million hundred ‘faces’ at school, when are you bringing your camera?” is anything to go by. I first posted about the finding of faces in inanimate objects here, with a ‘sequel’ here. I had figured our household head count finalised, but lo! last week I spotted this chirpy chap above. Thrilled to make each others acquaintance, we grinned like long lost kindred spirits – until I turned him ’round to grate parmesan on his back.
There’s also a reggae-obsessed, Marley look-alike, hitching a freeloading, non-peddling ride on the back of our tandem:
Down the road, I came over all MI5* and Spooks-like, surreptitiously snapping this entrance security system. Commendable invisibility accomplished, given kid in pusher, two shrieking on scooters, dog kitted out in knitted jumper and bulky digital SLR camera.
Elly Bee at Tuinstruinen sent me this surprisingly surprised fellow. You’d think he’d sort of get the thing with the squirty water by now:
And this little Pinocchio should just stick to the cold hard facts:
Finally, Wendy at Unleash the Inner Fwog, sent this little gem over, which just goes to show, you never really know someone until you’ve seen their washing machine:
You can find the sort-of rules here, if you just can’t resist playing. But even if you can, you have got to go and see the little doozies Kylie at A Little Red Dress and Jo at The Cart Before The Horse found.
I know I should set up a Flickr thingummywhatsit group in an uber-efficient fashion. Thing is, I’m second day into an extremely gale-force windy school holiday and someone, somewhere, has scientifically proven that the wind/kid combination is a too-true recipe for disaster. Instead you’ll find me rocking back and forth in the nearest corner, summoning the wherewithal for a third day attempt at earthmotherly sweetness and light.
