In between decorating the small bedroom, we've been out in the garden as its been nice and warm. This morning while we were having breakfast, this little visitor turned up looking for something to eat.
I took some more macros this afternoon, here's a spider attacking a small fly (both insects were only 4 or 5 mm in size!).
And this strange insect was sitting on a leaf.

I got out my Raynox 150, and put it on my Panasonic Lumix FZ18 to take some macro pictures in the garden today. Its a bit tricky trying to do these handheld, but a few came out OK.

Today was Father's Day in the UK, and so we risked the weather by having a barbecue round Russell's. Luckily it stayed dry, and the sun even came out for a while!

On Sunday, we got up to a light breakfast, before heading out to a surprise tour of the Bateman's Brewery in Wainfleet, before we enjoyed a lunch in the garden. It was a very relaxing and enjoyable way to spend a sunny afternoon. After that, we headed home, stopping briefly at a garden centre, before going back to Karin and James' house and heading off home.

On Saturday Morning Siv and I drove up to see Karin, James, Nori and Eirik in Kirton. Karin had to attend a conference in Birmingham during the day, so the afternoon was spent in the back garden playing football with Nori and Eirik and enjoying the good weather. In the evening we were invited along to a party held by Karin and James' friends Richard and Tara. As you can see from the photos, everyone had a great time, and the evening's finale was the launching of two mini hot air balloons!

Marie and Therese came over to visit us. They went off with Siv to a lot of the usual haunts (Camden Town, Oxford Street etc.). On the Saturday, we went to meet up with the girlies in Covent Garden who were meeting up as Katy, Woody and Trude were in town. While Siv, Marie and Therese went off shopping and the others went off for more wine and food, Lev and I went to The Empire, Leicester Square to see the new Star Trek movie.
