Weekly Photo Challenge: Happy

6 Oct


[Writing a renga with Viv]

Six Word Saturday

(also includes Friday)

in which Tilly

thinks she’s died and gone heavenwards

[Poetry reading at Bramhall Hall]

Yesterday afternoon I was at a poetry reading by Suzanne Batty, in Stockport Central Library, which was followed by a workshop.

This morning I am at a different poetry workshop.

What a great week I’m having!

Details to follow.

I am never happier than when I’m writing or doing writing-related activities.

[Promoting my writing group]

This week’s response to the photo challenge is supposed to include a new gallery feature that WordPress have introduced – they are as happy with that as I am with my workshops – but I only have 11% space left and all of these pictures have been on my blog before, so I have copied and pasted these photos instead of uploading.

To compensate, and to keep to the spirit of the exercise – which I am happy to do – here is a photo of me, happy (ecstatic, actually) in a gallery:

      I blogged about it at the time. The art gallery ran a poetry competition and then commissioned a conceptual artist to make art from the chosen poems. Great fun 🙂

    Have you been told lately that you have a fantastic smile? Well you do, it goes right to your eyes and you sparkle. I’m not worried about losing my malteser privileges because I eat ice cream, lol.


    • Tilly Bud - The Laughing Housewife October 8, 2012 at 14:36 #

      Subverting the rules – if I wasn’t so cross about the compliment [blush] I’d be complimenting you on your master criminality. 😀

    That first picture sincerely put a smile on my face. It perfectly captures the moment when you lose control of all reason and begin laughing uncontrollably. I love it.


  21. Three Well Beings October 7, 2012 at 07:32 #

    i enjoyed all the photos, but particularly liked the photo of you standing by the artwork of your poem! Very cool!


  22. McGuffyAnn October 7, 2012 at 15:15 #

    I wanna be you when I grow up…or would it be my second childhood…?

    If you edit photos to a smaller pixel size, before uploading to your media pages you can have a huge number of photos without loosing too much quality. I usually upload photos 640 x 427 size, after saving and editing, as this is what my ‘microsoft office 2010’ offers as ‘large web’ size. Different editing option will offer you different sizes. (With all my photos I have used only 13% of my space.)
    Or have you done that and still used up all your space?!

    Happiness is a Malteser. Your smile is worth a trunk ful.

    Did you create the art with the poem? It is fabulous! 🙂

I welcome your comments but be warned: I'm menopausal and as likely to snarl as smile. Wine or Maltesers are an acceptable bribe; or a compliment about my youthful looks and cheery disposition will do in a pinch.
