As Blue as Can Be – in a Good Way!

So, it’s official: from the 1st July, Emily’s riding school horse, Blue, is on loan to us five days a week, Monday to Friday! Emily will be caring for him every day and can ride every day if she wants to, which of course she does. She’s over the moon and so excited! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

In other news, the black and white “old camera” photography Emily did came out really well. A few of them were blurry with camera shake, but some of them are gorgeous. We had a very entertaining afternoon with Gramps last week learning how to develop the film. We don’t have a dark room, so the film has to be loaded into the processing spool canister thing-y (technical term) inside a special changing/”dark” bag, which is hilarious. It has two sleeves to put your hands in, so you can’t see what on earth you’re doing inside – incredibly fiddly! Then once the film is loaded on the spool thing, Gramps has the developing and fixing chemicals, so we learnt all about that. Then finally, the negatives get scanned into the PC. All good stuff πŸ™‚
