Back to school today and by some miracle we were ready in time for the kids to sit and do some reading together for a bit before running out of the door. I was in agony with a bad back today but the beautiful, cloudless, blue sky on the walk to school made me feel…… Continue reading 365 Project 2015, Week #16: Blue
Easter cards! The front one was made by me and won first prize in a competition – I still can’t believe I managed to draw something so neat lol. My Mum gave me this Easter tree last year. It looks lovely but was a total nightmare to construct – I had to basically break loads…… Continue reading 365 Project 2015, Weeks #14 & #15: Easter and Sparkles
I struggled with my 365 project last year – I stuck with it, but by the last couple of months I wasn’t really feeling it. All my photos were snapped half-heartedly on my phone whilst my camera lounged on a shelf, forgotten. Not wanting to feel like that anymore, but also not wanting to give…… Continue reading 365 Project 2015 – The Plan!
MONDAY: Today was the beginning of my birthday week of fun so before taking the Smalls on the bus to Daddy’s house we went out for lunch together and I had a very tasty Club sandwich which I have often fancied but never actually ordered before (which contained chicken, which is a bird…) Once the…… Continue reading 365 Project Week #8 – ‘Birds’
The theme for this week was ‘blue’. It was a bit harder than I expected it to be – every picture features something blue but sometimes it’s more of a hint than a feature! MONDAY: Sat on the sofa with my little boy looking trendy in his blue jumper I suddenly realised how grown up…… Continue reading 365 Project Week #2 – ‘Blue’
For my first week of 365 Take Two I set myself the theme of hands. I confess I did it because I thought it would be a nice easy one to ease myself in with and indeed I ended up with about 12 pictures on Monday because I got carried away and had to choose…… Continue reading 365 Project, Week #1 – Hands
Yesterday I posted picture 365/365 – The end of a very topsy-turvy year, documented in photographs of varying quality. I can’t give it up, I’m addicted. But to make things different I have decided that this time around I am going to set myself theme challenges. 52 of them. In this post I am going…… Continue reading My 365 Project. Take Two.
This morning was the first frost of 2012. It was also the first frost that Arthur has ever seen. He won’t remember it but I made a point of taking him outside before the sun melted it all so that he could see it and touch it. It’s just frost, but it’s his first. Tori…… Continue reading First Frost
When I admire the wonders of a sunset or the beauty of the moon, my soul expands in the worship of the creator. Mohandas Gandhi
I’ve had few people tell me Tori should be a child model. Whenever this is said I look at her and see a beautiful ruffian not an angelic model. Her hair is untamable AND looks like a mullet (she just hasn’t grown any at the top/front…), she usually has food on her face and dirt…… Continue reading Model Material?
