Below Your Feet

The cast is off my hand at last. It’s still too tender for prolonged typing but all being well I’ll soon be running out of excuses not to get down to some serious writing. Although yesterday my Bluetooth keyboard stopped talking to my computer which caused all sorts of problems. I was beginning to think that someone somewhere had put a hex on me but I found an old USB keyboard as a temporary replacement. It’s very clunky though and I hate it.

When I was doing the A-Z Challenge back in April I did underfoot for my ‘U’ post and took some pavement level photographs. This struck a chord with my poet friend who gave me a copy of the I-Spy book Below Your Feet (she’d already given me the companion volume Above Your Head).

It helpfully reminds you to take extra care and never stray into the road to take a closer look…

Interestingly (to me at least) on my recent trip to Paris I noticed they’re very keen on spray painting slogans onto the pavements so, with my I-Spy book in mind, I took some photos. Regrettably however there are no points for pavement graffiti so I won’t be sending off for my badge any time soon.


  1. Hi Sally. Not sure why you have a cast on your hand but sure hope it wasn't serious. Carpel tunnel surgery?

    BTW I have nominated you for the Sunshine Award over at my blog. Come take a look!

    1. Thanks for the award, I'm most honoured. I'm not sure if I can find enough people to nominate but I'll have a think about it.

      As to the hand – I tripped and put my hand down to stop the fall. Classic mistake.

  2. Hi Sally,
    Bet you're glad the cast is off!

    I have had trouble with machines this week - do you think they are ganging up? The printer went to war with me, and refused to do a thing! Had to call my brother in after four days of fierce fighting, and he promptly overthrew it, reprogrammed it, changed its cartridges at great expense! And then it finally complied.

    I swear it was the printer that gave me this virus...I know I'm being silly! Its a machine, it can't inflict nasty horrendous flu type viruses can it? Who can I blame then...I feel lousy.

    Have a good week.

    1. I don't think you're being silly. I think they can sense when you're at your lowest point. Glad you got it sorted though.

    2. Me too! Still battling the virus though...

      I do hope I can kill it off before next Saturday. :-)
