Can’t believe I’ve managed to keep up each week, and we’re now halfway through the year. Yes, week 26 of Project 365 is here, and I’m looking forward to continuing for the rest of the year. It’s interesting to see how my photos have improved (although that’s also to do with the fact that winter photos are always dodgy due to the indoor light…for this autumn I must get practising off manual to improve that – or just remember to check the ‘indoor’ scene setting on my phone!)
Sunday we went strawberry picking. N loved it, and I’m planning that we go back in a few weeks when the raspberries are ready.
Monday I was sorting out photos of my kitchen for a Britmums #KitchenTales challenge. Our shelf above the Aga is great as it’s full of photo of N, and our nephews and niece. I love this photo I took of N when he was about 8 weeks old. When he was a baby I didn’t take many photos or those I did take weren’t great. Winter baby, bad light, then broken camera, and phone camera wasn’t brilliant. Shame, as it would have been great to have more really good photos to look back on. I love this bowl as well – I painted this strawberry bowl when a friend and I went to a pottery painting place. When N’s a little older, I: shall take him, but it’s a bit of a waste now as he doesn’t really do drawings or artwork.
Tuesday N had a melt down when the OH came back to say goodnight, and then went back out to work again. That’s pretty normal for this time of year, and isn’t anything different, but now N’s more aware of it. And didn’t like it one bit. So I promised he could have an ice lolly. Jubbly to the rescue.
It’s great when N’s outside playing as I can just snap away. Wednesday he was out as usual. Now he’s a bit older, he doesn’t mind if I ask to take his photo. He’ll stand for all of about 3 seconds, but thankfully he’s not quite at the dodgy ‘cheese’ grin pose. I love this photo, although it does look a bit like he’s crying or shouting, rather than smiling!
Thursday I was in London for a work meeting. I love the buildings in London, especially amazing town houses. These caught my eye near Baker Street for the beautiful flowers that broke up the stripy brickwork.
Another eyes photo. On Friday after nursery we had to nip to the supermarket. Annoyingly I hadn’t finished my online shop prior to the deadline (which turned out to be much later than I thought because my slot was the hour later…grrr), so I had a couple more bits to get for this weekend. We had a bit of time before I had to take N for his preschool booster injections, so I’d said if we had time we could go to the cafe. Of course, he remembered this, so dragged me up there. One smoothie later and I had this photo of a fruity smoothie mouth.
We’d not made specific plans for Saturday, although I had a couple of vague ideas. The rain put paid to them though, and on arriving home from town we ended up sitting in the car for a bit before going indoors…in an attempt to wait the rain to hold off. It didn’t! But N loved ‘driving’ the car, so he was in his element.
