Grandchildren bring so much…
Hmmm. It would appear that my love of the summer holidays is more of a participate than document on a blog thing.
It reminds me of an incident that occurred in my early twenties when I decided that it would be a great idea to walk my cat on a lead much in the same way you might walk a dog. I got out the newly bought harness and decided to do a trial around the small front yard of the town house I was living in at the time. Fast forward 5 minutes to me trying to walk and the cat in the harness lying on the ground immobile. I tried a few steps to get the cat to stand up and it just lay there being dragged by the harness. Needless to say I stopped. A young woman dragging a cat around a yard on a harness is not a good look regardless that the cat would of been quite comfortable.
In the same way I have been dragging my blog through the Christmas season, posting photos on my iPhone when I could, but it is lying down and does’t want to move. I am all about going with the flow of life so I am letting my blog lie down and rest. I WILL STILL BE POSTING PHOTOS! Just not daily, particularly in January. I will be outside, playing with my kids, having cups of tea with my husband, photographing everything and enjoying the weather. When February comes around I might try using the WordPress challenge as a weekly prompt and post anything else that I photograph and want to share with you all.
Watch this space! I bet I will get creative now and want to post a whole heap of photos!…and I got lens’ and a tripod for Christmas….you know what that means!
A few photos I have taken in the past few days.
Christmas means family to me. My family is the most important thing in my life. I love spending time with them and relaxing together. As holidays should be. I just snapped them, minus W who is already in bed, watching TV and playing. Who would have thought average could be so enjoyable? Yay for everyday life!
This was tough. I like the feeling I get from Christmas the best. Why do I get it? Probably positive childhood memory association. How to photograph it?? Well this is my son’s advent calendar. The calendar itself is nice but nothing special. The positive associations of surprise, excitement, happiness and general loveliness that he is now developing from doing this and other Christmassy activities is what I like best about Christmas. I hope that he will have such strong happy feelings in the same way I do.
