self portrait tuesday

selfportraitjuly3

Taken last week. As you can see I haven't yet purchased a compact little digital nifty. This looks suspiciously like product placement, doesn't it?

Links to other self portrait tuesday bloggers here. And welcome Squished Piggies to self portrait tuesday!

Word for the day: flummery (because my oven broke yesterday and we're living on stove-top food)

Is the definition of "flummery" stove top cooking? Help, I don't speak Australian.

'Flummery', originally a sort of sweet food made with eggs, flour and milk but now usually having the meaning “nonsense; humbug; idle flattery”, comes from the Welsh 'llymru'.

Flummery is a dessert you can cook on the stove top. I am missing my oven desperately! Recipe for flummery at

Re the hair, after I took the photo I noticed my hair had escaped its clip and was falling artistically over my face. ;) Now I shall refer to that style as 'escapee'.

You asked for camera advice a while ago... I have a Canon Powershot G1. It's rather big, but I've enjoyed it. I'm mostly the point and shoot type. You can get so much more for the money these days. My Mr. has a Pentax Optio, which is delightfully compact and takes great pictures. He FOUND it on the side of the road, complete with an empty 256MB storage card. Unbelievable and highly suspicious. Who ever carries a camera around with an empty storage card? He's very lucky that way. He should probably buy a lottery ticket.
