When we arrived back home I got out the 50D and set it up on a tripod to take a few photos of the Moon. Lighting conditions were ideal for the shadows to show up some of the craters towards the edge.

Unfortunately it was too high in the sky to include any foreground but the remaining light in the sky did make it easier to get a reasonable exposure to the shots.
Nice surprise and Christmas present from Flickr. I have a Pro account as it enables me to have lots of folders to keep the photos sorted and on checking the latest upload there was an offer of an extra free three months which could be added to my account. Brilliant.
Later I had a search to see if there was an eBook version of The Moon's a Balloon. I found a few in epub format at a reasonable price but the only two reviews on the iTunes store put me off. Both were pretty scathing about the number of typographical errors.
Back to normal today - it's just started raining!
Thank you to all who suggested names for Penny's lamb. There are so many good ones I still haven't made my mind up. Must go and wrap her Christmas present - a Christmas Hedgehog.
