Project 365 2017 week 30 – camping and puppies

low planes over the tent

Week 1 of the summer holidays is complete and we’re back from our annual camping trip with friends. For the first time in 3 trips, we had more rain than sun, although I’m glad we got 2 days of amazing sun unlike those arriving at the end of our trip who were due more wind and rain.  I didn’t get much sleep unusually (well, my fitbit* says I did, but I seemed to see every hour so not sure how… Continue Reading “Project 365 2017 week 30 – camping and puppies”

Living Arrows 2017 week 30 – at the playground

Living Arrows 2017 week 30 - outside play

N had an inset day on Friday and decided that he just wanted to go to the park for a cycle. He didn’t manage much cycling because we had so much other stuff to do for camping prep, so stuck with the playground instead. This isn’t his natural face…I caught him just as he was grimacing about me taking a photo, but I like the openness of his body as he popped out of the tunnel.

My Sunday Photo – flax fields

My Sunday Photo - flax and poppy

I’ve been seeing a lot of flax fields recently near us. Previously there haven’t been any round us, so it’s been lovely to see the fields amongst the greens and yellows.  From a distance they look bloe, but up close, a beautiful purple. The field I managed to stop to photograph had a few lone poppies and a smattering of white flowers too.

Project 365 2017 week 29

new havaianas flip flops

This week’s Project 365 was a bit of a slog. This year’s felt a bit different with being less inspired – not helped by demoralising Instagram, now I’ve lost 300 followers in 2 months.  I’m now just thinking sod that, and will just enjoy looking at my feed myself. Because I’m proud of the photos I take and how much my photography has improved over the last couple of years. So only week 29 of Project 365. On Sunday I… Continue Reading “Project 365 2017 week 29”

Living Arrows – swing in sunset

Living Arrows 2017 week 29 - swing in sunset

This week’s Living Arrows shot was one taken in the week of N on the swing. He’s had the theory for years about making a swing go – legs forward and back, and then knowing he needed to lean. But until this week, he’s just not grasped putting the lean with the legs. But he’s cracked it and I hadn’t even realised until I spotted him in the garden going higher and hugher. Our climbing frame isn’t secured into the… Continue Reading “Living Arrows – swing in sunset”

Project 365 2017 week 27 and 28

selfie at Cornbury festival

It’s a fortnight of Project 365 for me this week. Going to Cornbury Festival last week didn’t leave me time to do it, and then I just didn’t get round to it over this week.  So here’s our week 27 and 28. Week 27 As well as the intended new puppy, I discovered on Sunday, we also have 3 new farm kittens. Yes, yet more. This is the fluffiest of the bunch. The other 2 didn’t want to be photographed.… Continue Reading “Project 365 2017 week 27 and 28”

Living Arrows 2017 week 27 – garden relaxation

Living Arrows 2017 week 28 chilling in the garden

Ok, so the hot weather at the moment doesn’t suit me, but it’s still nice to get outdoors for a bit of garden relaxation after school.  We even tried doing N’s reading outside, although it’s not easy for 2 people to get comfortable and still be able to read the book together. N spent most of the time hiding from the camera, but I did manage to get this one which I love. It might be summer, but yes, N… Continue Reading “Living Arrows 2017 week 27 – garden relaxation”

Living Arrows 2017 week 27 – 70s wig

Living Arrows 2017 week 27 black wig

I was struggling for photos this week of N. He’s avoided the camera well all week, but I remembered to check my camera and on it found this 1 photo from last week. Last Saturday we went to a 70s themed 40th birthday party.  N thought his dad looked really strange (so did I!) in his purple flower power dodgy ‘velour’ flares and top.  Add to that this 70s wig and it was a hideous outfit. N was quite taken… Continue Reading “Living Arrows 2017 week 27 – 70s wig”
