    You’ve been playing 🙂

    1. BeckyB says:

      PS hope you’ve survived the storm and no damage to garden or house. Mum says still incredibly windy in Somerset

      1. Heyjude says:

        No power since 4am, so cold, dark and no coffee!!! 😱

        1. Heyjude says:

          Quite. Only having electricity is a problem when this happens. Even though we use oil we still need electricity to run the boiler and pumps.

        2. BeckyB says:

          Have you still not got it back? Brrr, sending warm thoughts.

          One of the reasons we still have a fire place is because of this.

        3. Heyjude says:

          We do fortunately have a wood burner and I have discovered that we can boil water on it!. Power came on for an hour but just gone off again 😢

        4. BeckyB says:

          really hope it is now back on again, but yay for having a wood burner

        5. Heyjude says:

          Came on 10 minutes ago, but still the possibility of going off again as they are still working on the supply.

        6. BeckyB says:

          guess you are doing everything you can then whilst you have it!

        7. BeckyB says:

          Just lost power here! Only for 5 minutes or so, but much of town affected. Thank goodness we travel with torches.

        8. Heyjude says:

          Are you home again now?

        9. BeckyB says:

          Nope, not yet . . . fly tomorrow and currently trying to work out if we need to book PCR tests in addition to the lateral flow ones we have already booked.

        10. Heyjude says:

          I think so. And self isolate until the results. PCR tests on day 2 I think.

        11. BeckyB says:

          Still only lateral flow for us as we’re back before Tuesday.

        12. Heyjude says:

          Phew! Lucky!

        13. Heyjude says:

          Hope you don’t catch it on the flight, which seems to be where Jo’s son caught it from.

        14. BeckyB says:

          Our flight will be quiet as out of season and flying into Bournemouth – so am sure we’ll be okay.

          Plus not convinced that’s where he got it as evidence is the combination of air filtering and correct wearing of a good mask makes risk negligible – we’ll be wearing a FFP2 mask though to be extra sure!

    Is this you playing? Nice silhouettes!

  3. That’s a rather clever special effect.

    1. Heyjude says:

      Clever phone!

  4. beetleypete says:

    That worked quite well with the partial colour, Jude.
    Best wishes, Pete. x

  5. Its good to play with photos Jude – what do you use?
    p.s. hope your power soon’s restored – we have snow but heat and light too!

    1. Heyjude says:

      Just come back on. I have discovered that we can heat a pan of water on the wood burner which is good to know!

      1. Heyjude says:

        And now gone off again! Could be a looong evening.

  6. restlessjo says:

    Eek about the weather and lack of power! Ours went down for 4 hours last Saturday. Seems ages ago now. Hope you’ve got warmth back.

    1. Heyjude says:

      Just come back on. We had our boosters this morning and went for a full Cornish afterwards and a walk by the sea in hailstones! 😂

      1. restlessjo says:

        Fabulous!!!! I hope you stay well. We were out last night at a jazz event and our company of 6 was reduced to 5 because one had been poleaxed by her booster. Her partner felt very rough in the morning but soon got over it.

        1. Heyjude says:

          We are fine so far.

        2. Heyjude says:

          Banging headache this morning and a little warm, but nothing too bad.

        3. Heyjude says:

          When do you get your booster?

        4. restlessjo says:

          Mick on Thursday morning. I don’t have an appointment – glitch in the online system – but I’ll go along with him and we think they’ll take us together. They just want to get the job done 😉💕

  7. I like this one. My eye was drawn from bottom to top, to those four characters on the hill. They’ll probably never know they’re famous. 🙂

  8. Cathy says:

    This is such a good photo, Jude, and the tweaking just adds to this. Sorry to read about your powercut – I wonder how long it lasted in the end…?

    1. Heyjude says:

      14 hours in total, with an hour in the afternoon which was lucky as I could charge my phone. Only way to check on the updates! Thank goodness for the wood burner.

      1. Cathy says:

        Gosh, you must have had to do a lot of thinking out of the box!

        1. Heyjude says:

          We discovered that we can boil water on the wood burner!

        2. Cathy says:

          That was a worthwhile discovery! We have have log burner effect gas fire (the Golfer needs instant heat!) and I have sometimes thought it must get hot enough to boil a kettle… 😉
