If you've been around for the last couple years, you'll know we usually take family portraits in the home studio every December 31st. However, this year my studio lights broke! They were probably over 6/7 years old so they lasted a while but it means we couldn't keep up with our tradition :( We decided today to make the most of the hour of light we get in the middle of the day and at least try to get some sort of family portrait. It's not good, but it'll have to do!
Say hi to the first sky photo of this project! We had a semi-visible sunset for a change this evening.
I am so over the moon that this book is a part of my collection. Just look at those handsome men!! It's a very special book, filled with wonderful photos from Walt's younger years and right through his life. It just makes me wish I was born in the late 1800s / early 1900s even more...
First time seeing my girls in 2017! Poor Tilly was freezing and not so happy but she was a good sport (after I lifted her into this spot and held a treat at camera level) and got a nice photo with her sister. Brook on the other hand, who is a typical, bouncy, crazy, fun-loving puppy, sat so well this time!
First train spotting session of the year done!
Jan 6th. Day 6.
I spent the majority of the day moving furniture, deep cleaning and putting all my DVDs back onto the shelves in the correct order...which ate up a lot of my time so it's just a quick photo of my colourful 'big' books, today. They are waiting patiently for me to get a bookcase that fits them on.
Yessss! Week one - done. And without missing a day ;) Off to a good start. Today Baker, Mam and I went for a walk and ended up at the garden centre as always. This is a World War 1 shell - that we pass on our way to and from there - from HMS Hood (''the last battlecruiser built for the Royal Navy. Commissioned in 1920, she was named after the 18th-century Admiral Samuel Hood'' as says Google) and given to the village by Commander Phipps-Hornby of Murton White House, Berwick. It's super cool but as it is set into the wall, I think many people miss it in passing.
