The Gallery – No more excuses

by Insomniac Mummy on May 19, 2010

This week’s Gallery theme is ‘self portrait’. Hmmmmm.

What excuses can I come up with not to post a picture of myself?

Errmmmmm, the cat ate my camera!

No?

The husband confiscated the laptop!

Hardly likely if he knows which side his bread’s buttered.

I was suddenly inundated with visitors trampling down my front door and didn’t have a single spare millisecond!

Not likely when we are in chicken poxy quarantine….sob sob sob.

So, no more pathetic excuses, here’s me:




Phew, that wasn’t so bad…….was it?

Ah, is good to see you – as lovely as I thought from your Twitter avatar. Hope your poxy quarantine doesn’t last too long. When O had it we managed to sneak out onto a deserted part of Ilkley Moor and escape the four Walls. We didn’t see a soul, but we saw some curlews!

What a lovely smile :0) in the end. I think I’ll be hiding my photo for a while as I don’t want to be recognised! When will your quarantine be up?

You look a bit cross in the second one (I know you were pretending but it worked lol) and then your smile just transformed your face, fabulous :) Jen.

I am a bit scared by #2 – I’m glad you’re not telling me off (you could market that though…. I’m going off at a tangent…) – but glad you cheered up by the end :D

Gorgeous eyes and smile! You look quite uneasy at first, but then you relax in to it. Lovely.
