Tuesday 27th July 2010 - Today i can see Algeria, look there it is over there (pointing south), it looks very mountainy, I had a busy day today, i sat in the crows nest for 3 hours (its a coffee shop/bar above the bridge) and then i sat in the sun for a while, then I did my 45 minute show and after that I was free again to chill out. All this relaxing is wearing me out now.
Monday 26th July 2010 - Today was an awesome day, i got up early to watch the sail in to Malaga Docks and we had the sun rising at the same time and then another ship came in after us too, than i spent the day in Malaga having an awesome time :D.
You can just about see 2 ships on the left in this photo, mine is the one at the back
Sunday 25th July 2010 – We are still in the Atlantic and moving down the coast of Portugal, there is not a single bit of land in sight anywhere. The weather has turned rather Mediterranean which is nice but we are approaching a big purple splodge on the map, what does that mean? Pirates? 40’ 3.6N, 010’ 3.6S
Saturday 24th July 2010 – Today we cross the Bay of Biscay and one of the amazing things about P&O cruises is that I can get free tea 24 hours a day, Thank god I bought the biscuits. It rained this morning too. 46’ 59.7N, 007’21.8W
Wednesday 21st July 2010 - This evening Sean, Sharon, Gemma and Aimee came round for a southern states themed dinner of Jambalaya, Creole omelette, wrapped asparagus, creole potato cheese puffs, and a Spanish Paella for Gemma followed by Chocolate Cheesecake and finished off with marshmallows toasted on the Chiminea.
Tuesday 20th July 2010 - Well I started the Big pack today, I have SOOO much stuff to take away with me, gotta have enough stuff for 6 x 45 min childrens shows. This photo shows just some of it. (ps the cuddly toys are prizes to give away)
Monday 19th July 2010 - Its a national Holiday for Trolls today, If you dont beleive me then go out and ask your local neighbourhood Troll in the traditional Norse Language.
The National holiday is to celebrate vörð náfjarðar the tungl sjötrungnis and the auðsug jötuns with the élsólar böl and the vilsinn völu. Sounds like a LOT of fun huh :D
Remember to celebrate in the correct fashion as we dont want to upset any trolls. Just you wait to hear about all the fun that is planned on National armadillo day :D (and you think i make all this up? tut tut)
Sunday 18th July 2010 - So today i went Sphereing, Which basically involves being strapped into a 10ft diameter ball and pushed down a hill, its not a type of punishment, we actually chose to do it :o)
Sorry for the quality of the pic, its a scan from a photo taken from someone elses camera.
Saturday 17th July 2010 - We went to the Smith and Western Cowboy restaurant in Chichester to have an early birthday dinner for Sean tonight, they gave us crayons and here is my effort on the table cloth :D
Thursday 15th July 2010 -Its the last day of my photo course tomorrow and the final project is heat. I have had quite a busy day today and it wore me out. Still I have a wicked weekend to look forward too :D Oh I came to the realisation today that I hate purple balloons.
Sunday 11th July 2010 - WOOHOO I reached 300, who would have EVER thought I would get this far. Thanks to Clint for telling me how to do this effect, yes its all 299 of my last daily pics used to make up this one.

Saturday 10th July 2010 - Wow what a long day, long but good :d i had 3 really good jobs today so i can go to sleep happy :D
Am getting very exciting about my trip away to work on the cruise ship Aurora, its less that 2 weeks before I go now :D
Friday 9th July 2010 - Here is something I thought I would try and didn't expect to succeed and not sure or not if I did, i was just trying to get the background a little blurry, try it :D
1 - Hold the camera in front of you and as still as possible,
2 - Spin around as fast as you can then press the shutter
3 - Try not to fall over like I nearly did on the 6th attempt.
Saturday 3rd July 2010 - Well what a day full of excitement, I found a hedgehog in my garage and rescued him, he went off to snuffle around my garden, this is my first ever photograph I shot in RAW, yeah talk about behind the times but i only just worked out how to do it.
Thursday 1st July 2010 - Is their vision based on movement? if i stand still they might not see me.
If your wondering, i didn't use photoshop to replicate all the lions, I actually went out and bought 10 Lions for reasons known only to me :D
