Well I’ve not been very good at updating the blog with the photo a day project but I’m pleased to say that it is continuing – I’m taking a picture each day for the project but keeping up with the processing and blogging is taking a little time .. so here are the February and March images ….
Starting with dressing the little one for book week – when in an unprecedented non dog-related move she dressed as Gobbolino the witches cat
The snow was still here so we had great fun sledging
Next couple of days were pretty miserable so lots of indoor stuff like painting and cake making ..
Valentines Day – and I’m pretty happy with my heart shaped jelly beans
A few days of doing stuff for me and the business – starting with an incredible War Photography Exhibition in London – Don McCullin – Shaped by war – excellent but harrowing images. Also a bit of walking to wear in my new boots, and a newborn baby posing workshop to learn now to safely do certain baby poses – many of which are photoshopped afterwards. A great workshop.
So the weather is all over the place at the moment – going from biblical rain one day to sunshine the next – space hoppers and bubbles in the garden
At bedtime the dog army are on duty …
Then it was pancake day – and very exciting as the little one ended up taking part in the famous Olney Pancake Race – apparently the world oldest pancake race started in 1442 ! She had to wear a head scarf and was holding her pancake in the frying pan for dear life – she was even (briefly) on the evening news. Grandma came to visit- so there’s a picture of reading time and following the pancake race we have a bit of an obsession with headscarves going on !
Little one insists on plaits that we have to leave in to make her hair curly… not just for one night but for two so the hair is really curly …. she also decides to make a fuss of a often forgotten toy – her hobby horse.
Today we decided to create a special portrait that really sums up the little one – it therefore had to involve dogs – cuddly dogs – all the cuddly dogs she owns infact …
She also decided that she wanted a heart for her favourite cuddly dog “so he could be alive” and asked if I could get him a heart – tracked one down at Build A Bear
Tonight there seems to be a surfeit of onions in the house – I need to think of an onion-based dish for dinner I think !
The heart prompts a return visit to Build A Bear with little one in tow. Funnily enough she opts to Build A Dog ….and the dog (complete with clothes – how ridiculous !) has to be taken into school the next day …
We are now into March – and now that the days are getting sunnier, the little freckles are starting to appear – I love these !
My new brochures arrive and look fantastic
Another rainy day and nothing beats playing with old fashioned toys – she’s had this wooden train set for a few years and still loves it. Some members of the dog army break away and decide they to stand guard in a new place.
Another tooth makes a bid for freedom today (unfortunately the tooth fairy is a bit lax and forgets to come when she should to collect the tooth)
Dinner is made more exciting by impersonating works of art – today’s offering “The Scream”
The fairy gets her act together and turns up eventually
Its Pirate Day at School – and the little one gets fully into character
Little one makes a snack – I love the fact that the teddy crisps get a bed with a ham duvet. I also love the fact that the little bear looks so happy – obviously has no idea he’s about to be eaten !
