Day 6 – #H20nly Challenge – Drone Airsoft & Knitting

My husband runs an airsoft events company – Drone Airsoft – on the south coast. We run games on the first Sunday of every month. It’s usually a great day – I use it as a chance to get some photography practice in and use the down time to get on with projects.

I’ve had the opportunity this week to have a go at practising my panoramic shots. This is one I’ve taken with the panoramic function on my Fuji.

This is another shot I’m really happy with from yesterday – although I do admit this has now how a little fiddling with the brightness-contrast and sharpness.

In addition to having some fun with the camera, I also got a chance to get on with my current knitting project. I subscribed to a knitting magazine back in January. “Art of Knitting” – if you want to know more about it this is a really good review of the first issue. I’ve been knitting for years but have never progressed past the basic cast on, knit stitch, cast off. So when I saw this I figured this would be a great opportunity to learn some new knitting skills! 🙂 Each issue has a pattern and wool to knit 1 square. This is now completed square 9!

Square 9 - Diamond Stitch Square.Pretty easy to knit, but you have to concentrate and not lost count on the stitches!

Interesting, I’ve reached a point with coffee that I’m not even craving it any more. One of my friends came down to the site to keep me company and she had some of the coffee we provide complementary on site. I did not even feel like I fancied one. It actually did not actually bother me. The only thing I’m missing is the option to have a hot drink – hot plain water doesn’t quite do it for me. Interestingly, this is the first time I have not felt utterly exhausted at the end of a Drone Game. I also woke up a lot easier this morning.

In the last year, my husband and I have really started getting into fruit teas. Not green tea – even the posh stuff leaves a strange taste in our mouths. We only drink Twining’s though – the difference between their teabags and the cheaper stuff is significant. Try smelling the dry tea-bags side by side. You will see the difference. The other option for fruit teas is the powdered stuff – but they are packed with sugar. So I am really looking forward to some fruit tea on Thursday night 🙂

I’m not just doing this for the health benefits. Did you know I’m also trying to raise money for the RNLI? I’m not allowed another cup for 4 days to try and raise money for the RNLI – you can donate on my justgiving page here.

Giving up everything non water for 10 days in June
