It’s week 9 of Project 365, and it’s been a bit easier taking photos again. Helped of course, by springtime making itself heard with flowers coming into bloom. I’m hoping March will be out like a lamb seeing yet more windy, stormy and rainy weather is interspersed with the sunny spells at the start of the month.
On Sunday, N had the craft supplies out again. There was glitter everywhere, so I decided to see if I could get any of the sparkle on my camera. There was great bokeh, but then I decided to try a water droplet photo experiment above the glitter. It was a bit rushed so I struggled to focus and was mostly using my phone. But I quite like the feel of this.
On Monday my brother popped over to say hi. He loves having N to play with because it means he can play with all the toys we either didn’t have as children, or enjoy some creativity. This time it was Hama beads* which we all love.
On Tuesday it was pancake day so of course we had pancakes. I had to make one in the morning for N to take to school for their pancake race, but we had them properly in the evening. The topping of choice for us is traditional sugar and lemon)
On Wednesday I spotted my first sunrise in ages. At the moment it’s so light in the morning I’ve usually missed the sunrise (or maybe they’ve just been a bit rubbish). I was pleased to catch this one though.
It’s noticeable how much more writing N will do of his own accord. On Thursday, he said he was going to write a story, then it because a song (and the next day it was a story again). His stories aren’t very adventurous, but I’m just pleased he’s happy and choosing to write.
On Friday it was tennis. They were meant to be back outside again after half term, but it was wet so they were back in the village hall. N plays tennis twice a week and has done since September. His tennis is still inconsistent, but he does enjoy it. What he doesn’t enjoy is the other 3 boys in his session who muck around, don’t listen, take up lots of the coaches’ time which means others miss out, and are just really irritating.
On Saturday we actually had blue skies, sun and warmth. We spent a bit of time scooting and at the park in town before I had my hair appointment, then I wanted to get out on the farm to take flower photos. So N took his bike out.
