April 30th 2013 - Day 120.

'' Finding this hard to type seeing as Bunny is currently perched on my chest but this afternoon has been a lazy day (after our daily 3+ mile walk!) , laying on the sofa/futon in the spare room, job searching, blogging and watching YouTube!''

April 29th 2013 - Day 119.

''Finally, just as I thought I was losing all birding knack I got a bunch of photos of this little guy whilst out on Baker's walk. He preened and posed for a few minutes, even (I swear) looking down quizzically at me, before flying off to a near by tree. Thank you Mr Chaffinch! ''

April 28th 2013 - Day 118.

''It's typical that as I type this the sun is peeking through the clouds as there were no signs of it on our trip to the beach this morning! The windy weather was perfect for all the sailing boats that were on the water today though and I caught this little one as it was first leaving the docks.''

'' Mam and Dad came down today to help me start off the (unsuccessful) house hunt, unfortunately we spent most of the morning on public transport. I miss my little car...''

April 26th 2013 - Day 116.

''Stupid excuse for graffiti. If you're gonna do it - do it right. We walked over 4 miles along to the river this afternoon and as soon as we got there it started hail stoning! Sun and hailstones at the same time - climate change for you...''

April 25th 2013 - Day 115.

''I love passing these decks in the hallway everyday - such a different take on artwork and each with their own story. We have 5 others too so when we move I hope there's a good spot to keep them on display!''

April 24th 2013 - Day 114.

'' I'm lucky to have my own studio set up but it means when taking photos non-photographers would take, I feel the need to have proper lighting...''

April 23rd 2013 - Day 113.

'' With it being Saint George's Day I searched my drawers for something red to wear. My tartan Superdry shirt and these polka dot socks were all I had.. :/ haha Hope you all have a lovely day if you are in one of the zillion countries that celebrate today, make sure to check out my blog post about the history and legends of why today exists and what else is being celebrated tonight! Click here! ''

April 21st 2013 - Day 111.

''I don't usually like to post two black and white photos back to back, but it was unintentional as was this photo. I wanted to picture the rain or rain clouds but had to snap a quick shot when I heard these two little guys having a conversation. With the yucky grey rainy sky the effect was more a silhouette.''

April 20th 2012 - Day 110.

''Baker and Barney - sounds like a good idea for a TV show eh? haha I originally took the camera out with the 70-300mm lens hoping to catch some birds. I got some good photos a few day's ago of a coal tit and a couple others but posted this instead, so a birding photo was my aim for today. Guuhh, never have a plan in mind for a photo 'cause it doesn't happen - the birds must of all been hiding today. Instead I caught this little candid of Baker playing with Barney while they stared each other down as my little man was jealous of his friend having a ball (we lost ours :( boohoo ). I like it in black and white because it made the difference in their coloring's stand out. ''

''Yet another day at the beach today but thankfully it's actually like Spri*--------+ds (the rabbit hopped across my laptop there and I'm gonna leave it in because it's cute!) Spring*.  I took lots of photos, as always. but loved all the different colors just on this one piece of wood. ''

April 17th 2013 - Day 107.

''Look how freakin' cute Bunny is!!! When all else fails I can always count on my animals to make sure I don't fail on a daily photo. I've just spent a little while playing with Bunny in his room, having some hugs and of course treats and just love it when he runs around sneaking behind Jake's skateboard. ''

April 15th 2013 - Day 105.

''Back to the beach it was today. Sun was shining even if the wind was blowing a sandstorm! Baker was showing off for his daddy bounding through the waves again and I joined him for a quick paddle. I hope we have lots more days like this to come.''

Sunday, 14 April 2013

April 14th 2013 - Day 104.

'' Okay, so today's photo is probably the earliest in the day I've taken any from this project so far - after midnight though so qualifies as the 14th even if it was before we went to bed. 3am and this is how we watch the UFC streaming from the laptop and connected to the TV!''

April 13th 2013 - Day 103.

'' Look at my baby go!! Bakers first time playing in the sea properly was so satisfying for me to watch and photograph. He looked to be having so much fun and it was thankfully a beautiful day for it - I didn't even need a coat :) Unfortunately the fun was ruined when a meeting of huskys ended up in around 10 of them rushing over and surrounding Baker. He was petrified and we were even given an apology. More about that next week on my main blog anyways.... ''

'' We pass this fence everyday on Baker's walk and I always look at it. A patchwork fence, how weird eh? ''

April 10th 2013 - DAY 100!


'' Day 100!! Yey! I can't believe it. So as it was a little milestone I wanted to do something special. I know it's not special to everyone else, but updating our family portraits is important to me and seeing as we forgot the whole 'portrait each month' that I talked about, I wanted to get them done. There are lots more, including ones of Baker and I and Bunny and I which will be up on my main blog in the following couple of weeks :)''

'' This is when you know technology is going too far. Xbox and iPhone?! Really Jake? Tommorrow we're playing Monopoly!''

April 8th 2013 - Day 98.

'' I don't want to be the type who photographs their food but as always when there is a 'filler' photo it's because there was nothing that interested me otherwise to pick up the camera today. The pretty green of the lettuce contrasts nicely with the spicy red of the enchiladas though don't you think? :P ''

April 7th 2012 - Day 97.

''I thought I'd show off my progress on my giant gobstopper. My Mam bought me it on Friday when she was down visiting from the old fashioned sweet shop van in town and these are the pretty colours I've uncovered so far. I thought I'd also sneek my new Minnie Mouse top in too - thanks Dad. :) ''

April 6th 2013 - Day 96.

''8pm and the sun is still out! Daylight savings totally throws me off in knowing what time it is haha. We were only out today to walk the dog and I've spent the afternoon doing chores so I thought I'd make the pretty view across the rooftops today's photo.''

Wednesday, 3 April 2013

April 3rd 2013 - Day 93.

'' Baker and I found a new wooded area to walk in yesterday after not being able to go to the park because of the state it's been left in since Easter. We treated Daddy to being let in on the secret location today and enjoyed a lovely family walk in the brilliant sunshine! I took quite a few photos, but none seemed to look right once cropped. So this one is obviously heavily edited but I thought it looked as if it  would be at home in an old fashioned original Winnie the Pooh illustrated book. ''

April 2nd 2013 - Day 92.

''This isn't my year so far. Not only did we lose little Nike yesterday, but on the way to bury her my car broke down! The recovery vehicle came and picked it up and dropped it back at our house but it is completely dead :( I'm sad not only because it was our lifeline in getting us around but because it was actually my late Granda's car and it's horrible to have to say goodbye to it. It's hopefully getting picked up tomorrow to go to it's new home where it'll go from a broken down 1.2 to a souped up 1.8 turbo...''

April 1st 2013 - Day 91.

''Today is a very sad day. We woke up to the unexpected, sudden death of one of our babies, Nike. Not long after writing an update about them all on my other blog, it came as a complete shock as she was completely healthy and well last night, I am completely heartbroken. It seemed as though Bunny was to follow suit too as he was very weak earlier though Jake and I have sat with him all day making sure he is eating and drinking and he seem's to be feeling a little better, even had a peak out of his cage. Please keep him in your thoughts and hope he makes a recovery. ''
