July 31st 2013 - Day 212

''I am aware this photo isn't the best, it's noisy due to the extreme low light it was taken in, but it's of my beautiful boy Bunny. More like a dog that a rabbit. <3 ''

July 29th 2013 - Day 210.

''Tried to recreate the ice cream that I got at South Shields not this weekend past but the one before. It's too hot and it just turned into a drink instead...:/''

July 28th 2013 - Day 209.

''Spoilt boy had a lovely time playing with his tennis ball with Daddy at the field today but it was hot and he needed a drink! Now we do have a fold up bowl for him but he prefers to drink like a person for some reason. He was such a good lad and even walked all the way home OFF his lead to Daddy's heel. Can't believe it. Not that it'll be a regular thing but at least we know he can do it :) ''

July 27th 2013 - Day 208.

''Last weekend I won a competition from one of my favorite metal detector-ist on YouTube! Yey! My package arrived on Tuesday but I wasn't in and the postman kept it for himself (not really but he took it back to the depot) and Thursday was the first chance I got to go pick it up. I got some pretty cool stuff, including this rare coin! I photographed it all tonight ready for a blog post next week...look out for that.''

July 26th 2013 - Day 207.

'' After almost 2 months in the new place we are having our first 'Sunday' dinner tonight and while watching Prison Break which makes it even better :) ''

July 25th 2013 - Day 206.

''Another phone photo as I didn't take my camera when I went to my course today at Gateshead but saw this and had to make it today's photo especially for my Dad.''

July 24th 2013 - Day 205.

''After a morning of still feeling icky I decided I had to try eat something and make myself feel better as the house was starting to become a pigsty! While re-arranging the bedroom I let Bunny out to have a prance around my ankles and he's being so funny so I thought I'd try and catch a few snaps when he sat still long enough. Here he was sitting eating some of the cardboard boxes we still have in the spare room as we haven't found a suitable bookcase type unit yet. I still have him out while typing this and I feel awful he hasn't been able to have a good long play in a little while because he enjoys it so much.''

July 23rd 2013 - Day 204.

'' A very late and non-photographic photo for tonight as I'm ill. Uh. Yesterday my fab neighbour Laura done  my first ever set of acrylics for me! It's taking lots of getting used to and I can't make a proper fist anymore so they'll definitely not be a permanent edition if I'm gonna be going back to training. I was trying to take a photo of them but my little man, whos been looking after me all day, wanted to come hold my hand. He's so lovely. ''

July 22nd 2013 - Day 203.

'' Went or a meal with Mam and Dad today and Mam told me I had to go see the bathroom as it reminded her of Harry Potter...''

July 21st 2013 - Day 202.

''Another to add to the collection. Last year I took lots of photos of the event and you can see them by clicking HERE, but this year Baker joined us and it was a little harder with having to concentrate on him. He did so well. Especially going on the bus for his first time ever! ''

July 20th 2013 - Day 201.


'' Arbeia Roman Fort is where we went today on a very rare 'date day' without the dog. My parents are down this weekend and so dog-sat for us so we could have a day together. After a super eventful journey there we had a brilliant time exploring the reconstructed buildings, excavation site and museum, then ventured to the sea front for an ice cream and some fun in the arcades. There will be a very picture heavy post next week over on Underland to Wonderland all about our day. These are real Roman skulls of a child, woman, man that had been hit with a blunt object to the head and a man that had had an absess. Very interesting. ''

July 19th 2013 - Day 200.

''I wanted today's photo, my 200th photo, to be something special, however I didn't do anything special at all. Then I thought I'd photograph my iron. Like some kind of arty reflection type thing. But then I couldnt find my iron! So when Rex came to call on Baker this evening I took my camera out with us and just snapped a few things I could see from where I was sat. Anyone that knows me will know I'm not a big fan of flowers but I just liked how the setting sun shone through them and made them light up. I look forward to the day I can have pretty trees and plants in my garden. ''

July 18th 2013 - Day 199.

''Guess who lost another baby tooth! Only 179 days after he lost his first ever tooth. This is why I like doing this project. Awesome memories. If only I'd started it from the day we brought him home!''

July 17th 2013 - Day 198.

''Okay, I know the studio portraits are getting boring now but I was bored while Jake was out skating earlier, had a play with my make up then decided I'd like a new photo for the 'about me' section on my other blog so had a play around with the timer. This is the only one out of maybe 100 I took that was alright. Meh. Nevermind. Got a couple new 'uns of Jake and I when he came in too :) ''

Tuesday, 16 July 2013

July 16th 2013 - Day 197.

''After a day of boring adult appointments, we spend the rest of the afternoon out of the sun for change. I have dishes to wash and a couple other bits of housework to do but I couldn't be bothered to tell the truth! The weather has really taken it out of me, I'm feeling ill and think I'm dehydrated (I hardly drink anything ever, oops) but it's Baker I can't help worrying about in this heat. He always has clean, cold water near by but I think he doesn't drink enough and after he enjoyed his ice pops the other day I thought I'd make some more. Post to come about them on Underland To Wonderland!

July 15th 2013 - Day 196.

''More sun means more chilling in the garden. Unable to connect the hose to the tap and consequently unable to fill the paddling pool, I resorted to dipping my feet in the empty laundry basket. ''

Sunday, 14 July 2013

July 14th 2013 - Day 195.

''Impromptu make up and beauty photo shoot in the living room tonight with my new favorite model and neighbour, Laura. Make sure to check out her new blog for a peek of some of the other photos we took...''

Saturday, 13 July 2013

July 13th 2013 - Day 194.

''Spent the morning in the garden, on the futon while the dogs played and birds sang. Looked up and saw a bird I've never caught on camera before sitting on my fence, although by the time I went to grab the camera and change the lens he hopped up onto the lampost. It's a Pied Wagtail by the way. ''

July 12th 2013 - Day 193.

''It's a momentous day today! After months of lusting after an infomercial product, I finally got my hands on a 6-1 steam cleaner. Yey, I love it. I've cleaned my outside windows, my full bathroom, kitchen floor and sink. Can't wait to try some of the other functions out on the rest of the house. Thank you so much Dad :) Love you. ''

Thursday, 11 July 2013

July 11th 2013 - Day 192.

''Seeing as I haven't worn any make up at all for the past week or so, I thought I'd just have a play about and put some on today. Not that I'm going anywhere, 'cause I feel poorly, but maybe a full face will make me feel better.''

Wednesday, 10 July 2013

July 10th 2013 - Day 191.

''I've been a (daytime) skate-widow this week and tonight the skate videos are on. I'd usually watch them too but this wasn't a company/team I'm a fan of. Tomorrow I get my man back though, yey!''

Tuesday, 9 July 2013

July 9th 2013 - Day 190.

''Oops! I actually totally forgot about a photo for today. So at 10pm I grabbed the camera and headed to the garden in the hope that tonight's sunset was as good as last nights. I stuck lucky! ''

Monday, 8 July 2013

July 8th 2013 - Day 189.

''Seeing as we've not had a portrait of my little man for a while, here you go. He's been such a good boy all day - even had a dip in the paddling pool.''

Sunday, 7 July 2013

July 7th 2013 - Day 188.

''Bubbles are always cool and although I'm aware this is my second photo of such subject this month, these bubbles are special. Catchable bubbles that are extra durable - as far as bubbles go - for the dogs to play with, so that's what they did.''

Saturday, 6 July 2013

6th July 2013 - Day 187.

''Actually had a proper photography shoot today! A couple's shoot, for my lovely neighbours Peter and Laura. This edit was just a little fun one for blog purposes, so to see the real full set CLICK HERE.  I owe them both a big thank you for making us feel so welcome here, giving Baker a friend to play with and just being genuinely lovely people - I really have made an actual friend. And come on, how gorgeous are they?!''

Friday, 5 July 2013

5th July 2013 - Day 186.

Two photos for the price of one today seeing as I didn't get one I was fully happy with, didn't have the guts to play about with my camera too much near the pool.
I thought I had to make the most of the sun today seeing as our summer days are few and far between and today was glorious. We got a cheap paddling pool, took ages to get it filled it up, then had a relax in our bikinis. Lots of fun to keep cool and then when Laura went to have her BBQ food I decided to take the opportunity and crack out the book with my feet still dipped in the water - felt almost like being on holiday!

Thursday, 4 July 2013

July 4th 2013 - Day 185.

''Unfortunately just a mobile phone photo for today but I really wanted to show something from our trip to the park this morning. These are our lovely neighbours that we've made friends with, Laura and Peter and that's Baker with his best pal Rex! ''

July 3rd 2013 - Day 184.

''Bubble bath in progress! So nice to have a working boiler and not need to plan a bath a day in advance. This one is lovely and deep too, full on mermaid-ing.''

Monday, 1 July 2013

July 1st 2013 - Day 182.

''The first thing I do when I get up and the first photo taken as part of my Disney Collection set. Look out for that coming this month on Underland to Wonderland.''
