Nay, nay and thrice nay! there I was, using self timer on the camera trying to get a photo of myself for (cough) author purposes. Don't laff.

Have I mentioned the fact I hate having my pic taken?

Have I mentioned that when it comes to cameras I am the female equivalent of Mr Bean? (I set flash, it turns into deep dark get the picture). Unfortunately I never do!

So after nearly an hour of click, click I gave up in a fume and decided to take pictures of Diva Tot instead.

Would she oblige with a smile? No! The picture says it all.

Then ping I take one of both of us and it's the best pic I've taken in years...only I canny use it. Because it has my teensy in it too!

Oh the trials.
Must now enlist a very patient and camera-savvy friend...sigh! Maybe I'll have to hire a stunt double!

The Small One is such a gorgeous cutie! Just like her lovely mum of course!

Feed her up a bit and in a few years she can take the pics--it cost me 50p to get my Big One to do it and she's not at all bad!

Now all I need to do is work out how to airbrush out the chins...

Best of luck, M'dear!

Lots of love,

XX (word verification is 'crone'! Blooming cheek!)

Ah, what a shame you can't use the one of both of you, its lovely! I suggest coffee and buns with Suz. I'm sure she'll sit across the table and take one!

What a wee cutie. And gorgous photo of the two of you.

PS Sally - that's a great suggestion, I'll bring my camera next time we do coffee.

Gorgeous pics! What a little sweetie. And your daughter's lovely too. ;-)
I took my 'authorly' photos myself on my iPhone - and then doctored them heavily. Hehe. There's some great apps out there that make the wrinkles just disappear! :-) Not that you appear to have that problem it has to be said.

It's a lovely pic! What a cutie!
I'm like you a hundred pictures later and I give up. My current one is an ID photo that was taken by someone else and just happened to turn out okay. My standards aren't high, if I don't look psychotic I think it's a good one ;)

Great pictures, Jude. I even like the grumpy gus pic...shows a different side to her personality. They all have that side, don't they? LOL.

My youngest just came home with proofs of school photos yesterday and the first one is a dead ringer for the top one of your tot. I can't imagine what she was thinking to make her look like that. And in the next she has a huge smile. I've given up trying to understand.
