I'm sorry I haven't posted much this week. I got my laptop back last week and now have a working keyboard again... but the battery annoyingly still needs replacing. It's completely drained and doesn't last a second unplugged, so it's being temperamental. Annoyingly, I learned the battery isn't covered under my insurance plan (I've been paying a tenner a month for five years and they can't replace a battery? Seriously?!), so I've ordered a cheap one from Amazon and I'm hoping it'll get here soon so I can get back to blogging properly again. I also need some decent sunlight so I can take photos for all the posts I have planned, but now I'm just being greedy!
For today, I thought I'd do something a little different and do an Instagram round-up post. I know most bloggers do these posts regularly, but I haven't actually done one in about two years! Crazy, right? I love using Instagram as I love taking photos, but I don't post as much as some, mostly because I run out of interesting things to share being stuck in bed so much. I have been trying to post more over the last couple of months, though, so I'm going to share some of my favourites from the past few months.
As you can probably tell, all six photos above are of the same river; although all taken on several different days between October and December last year. We pass over this bridge every time we go to and from the hospital, and I can never resist snapping a couple of quick pics because it's just so pretty.
I have a habit of taking pictures from the passenger seat, so most photos of buildings and the countryside were taken from a moving car on the way to hospital appointments.
